Stove expert replied: Drying washing around a stove is tempting but be mindful that the moisture will have to go somewhere and can cause mold and consenation. Stove seems to be working well and as will all models the fuel is key to what heat you can chieve.
I really liked the look of the Ludlow; having read the reviews was slightly sceptical but decided to go for it...very disappointed. I have a Clear View in my hall and itís a far superior stove... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Changing the rope to a thicker one may not solve the problem, stoves are fitted with the rope correct for its needs. Have you looked at adjusting the door to get a better seal?
Had boiler a few weeks.Got this model due to the the claim from Aga that it was ok for overnight burning. But after reading reviews was a bit unsure. Glad to say using home fire fuel it can... [ read more ]
Well after having the Aga Ludlow for just over a year now I have mix feelings about this little wood burner. For the last 11 months the wood burners has worked well, giving a lovely heat (which... [ read more ]
