Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 7 stove

Generally Satisfied

Hugh Whitaker 6 years ago

This was my first outing into a woodburning stove and we were restricted by the amount of heat energy that we could safely input into our thermal store. The stove we purchased was the multifuel with the back boiler. This heats up the 305ltr thermal store and we can see the temperature rising in the cylinder so I am satisfied with this aspect. I was concerned about some reviews I had seen about creosote eating the steel back boiler but I hav'nt seen this yet and hope not to or my room will flood! it burns well, I wish I had purchased one with a bigger burning area as I have to replace the well seasoned logs that I typically burn every hour to an hour and a half to maintain temperature. I agree re the ash at the front lip. The airwash mainly cleans only the central zone (but it means I can see it and enjoy it so it doesn't bother me too much). I would recommend it but would if I had to purchase again buy a bigger box in the future if possible as this resides in our dining room and if you are wanting to top up the heat into my green heating system then I have to keep topping it up as mentioned. Well done keep up the good work :)
