Review of Aarrow Ecoburn 7 stove

Arrow Ecoburn 7

George Mcmillan 4 years ago

This was my first forray into the log burner life, I wanted one to reduce my heating outgoings and also heat the one room I'm in most without heating the whole house. I'm a gas engineer so pretty well versed in the technicalities of these stoves. I chose the Arrow Ecoburn purely down to it's looks and good reviews.

Unfortunately those reviews didn't explain that the air control systems didn't really work very well and you can end up over using fuel. It's the only negative I have about the stove but one people should be aware off. Still very happy with my choice as it does a good job and in nice to look at.

Stove expert replied: The controls on a stove do take time to learn and perhaps the addition of a stove thermometer will allow you to find the best setting for optimum efficiency.
