    We had Evolution 26 installed 3 years ago and when it works it does heat water and rads well but trying to add more logs is where the problems start. When the door is open the smoke fills the... []

    Stove expert replied: These are good boiler stoves and it should perform well to heat the home and as you say when working it does this, the refuelling is the problem area - this is not a stove fault. Regarding the problem with smoke coming back into room, this is usually down to the installation / flue system. Is there enough free air in the room for combustion to occur? Is there an anti downdraught cowl fitted to the flue system? Have you another flue in the property that may have a stronger draw on it to the one being used for this stove? Access to the flue for sweeping should always be provided and this should normally coincide with being able to remove any debris from the top of the baffle plate. Perhaps looking into the complete installation before removal would be beneficial as it is a costly change that may not be totally necessary.

    Great stove, used to heat a 1000Ltr accumulator tank servicing a new 200m2 house. Note this stove requires alot of wood! Also currently only stove that gets the MCS grant.

  • Do not buy this stove

    Tom Lovatt 2 months ago

    We had an Evolution 26 stove fitted just over 2 years ago. When we bought it, it was one of the most expensive in the show room and we were told it was possibly too powerful for our 2 bed cottage... []

    Stove expert replied: If the stove is too powerful for your property then it will not be working effectively as it has no need to! Is there an airbrick in the room? What height is the flue system? Is the wood dry and well seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%? Has it been installed as per the manufacturers instructions? Further investigation by a qualified heating engineer who is Hetas registered is recommended to hopefully improve the performance that you are experiencing.

    Had this stove fitted to a new bungalow chimney built to manufactures recommendation three years ago, this stove is the worst nightmare with smoke pouring into the room on reloading tried fitting... []

    Stove expert replied: I doubt it is the stove that is at fault but the installation that prevents the flue gases from lifting away from the firebox on opening of the door. Is there an air brick in the room? What height is the flue system and what is the construction.? Have you other flues in the property? Further investigation may improve this further as alternative remidies are normally possible once the cause if found.
