Review of 4kw Foxfire stove

Woodwarm Foxfire roomsealed

Stephen Johnston

Had one of these stoves installed a number of months ago. It was replacing another stove of fairly reputable make which was thoroughly unsatisfactory - smoky glass, smoke leaking into rooms etc. Chose the roomsealed version of the Foxfire and have to say we are thoroughly pleased with the result. This stove is easy to light, takes a good sized log, stays in overnight and responds well to control changes. Glass get lightly stained if set at slumber for prolonged periods but the easiest way to clear it is to open up the fire and let the staining burn away - which it inevitably does so that the glass rarely needs cleaned. This stove is just light years ahead of our previous one. Had we known how well this stove was going to work we would probably have ordered a larger Woodwarm stove with an integral boiler. As it is it is perfectly sized for the room it is in i.e. about 5m x 4m and puts out enough heat to take the chill off the whole house if all the doors are left open.
