Stove expert replied: The fire rope used will not only depend on the diameter but the density of it and perhaps all that was needed was adjusting of the doors before rope replacement. You can tell if the rope requires replacing if it has become flat and seated and there is no spring left in it when you press it.

Whilst renovating our house I talked to a number of stove suppliers and most said "don't get a big one, you'll be too hot". Our sitting room is only 68 cubic metres but I went against that advice... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A larger stove than is required can make a room uncomfortable so discuss actual requirements before buying as it is an expensive and uncomfortable mistake to make, being too hot is worse than being cold!!
