Review of Aduro 9 stove

Aduro 9 air for a well insulated house

5 years ago

We moved into our brand new house in 2015 and wanted a log burner. We chose this one as being suitable for a well insulated, centrally heated house and at a competitive price. We were not disappointed with our choice and it looks great in our lounge.

We operated it with very small fires and have had no issue with it.

However, the strong winds of this winter have drawn our attention to one thing.

The pipe which supplies the stove to the outside air, also supplies the air to our room!

There is no connection of the fresh air pipe to the stove!

Checked the Aduro website to see if their fitting instructions could shed any light on what we think is an error on the part of our installers.

Lo and behold, it''s been fitted as per Aduro''s diagram!

Aduro haven''t yet got back to me with their comments. I am still waiting.

So, watch out if you choose this stove, you will need to chat about this with your installer.

I can''t believe that our installer didn''t realise the problem that would occur in the winter ( stove was installed on a hot June day!)

Stove expert replied: Direct air models of the Aduro 9 stove allows for connection onto the stove either through the base or at the back and will prevent cooling of the room. The standard Aduro 9 stove does not have this facility.
