  • Very disappointing performance!!!

    Claire Duckett 2 years ago

    We have had our highlander 8 with a back boiler for 2 years now and if I had my chance again I would never have bought it!!!! Within the first month of purchase we had the technical engineer... []

    Stove expert replied: I would try smokeless fuel in the stove as you may find this will give a better heat output to room and water being a concentrated pro-longed heat source. If you decide to remove this stove YOU MUST NOT FILL THE BOILER WITH SAND AND USE AS A DRY STOVE, this was advice given by the health an safety department several years ago. I would suggest selling it to someone wanting a boiler model. The Dove will give you 10kW's to water and 2kW's to room should you opt for this model in the future. I would suggest getting your requirements calculated by a heating engineer to insure that the stove is able to provide your requirements.
