Review of Broseley eVolution 26 boiler stove
Do not buy this stove
We had an Evolution 26 stove fitted just over 2 years ago. When we bought it, it was one of the most expensive in the show room and we were told it was possibly too powerful for our 2 bed cottage.Each time we open the door, smoke billows out into the room and we have to open the window. The radiators never get fully hot even with it burning 15 hours a day. We have tried different cowlings, been passed from pillar to post when trying to find a solution. Our curtains and paintwork are black, goodness knows what our lungs are like!
Stove expert replied: If the stove is too powerful for your property then it will not be working effectively as it has no need to! Is there an airbrick in the room? What height is the flue system? Is the wood dry and well seasoned with a moisture content of less than 20%? Has it been installed as per the manufacturers instructions? Further investigation by a qualified heating engineer who is Hetas registered is recommended to hopefully improve the performance that you are experiencing.
