  • Punching well above its weight

    Daniel Sutcliffe 2 years ago

    For a small stove this thing really throws some heat out, I've been looking for a replacement stove for a while and I've been deliberating whether or not to go multifuel or wood only I finally... []

    Stove expert replied: As with any stove the installation is key to a stoves performance, the flue draw should match that stated by the stove manufacturer regardless of whether a twin walled system or liner is being used. Fuel is the next key factor and a moisture content of less than 20% is recommended on any wood that you use, using a higher moisture content means that you have to burn off the moisture first (wasting valuable energy) before any heat will be produced. The moisture can lead to chimney problems, discolored glass and residues within the fire chamber and lack of heat. Great comments for this stove regarding output.

  • A great stove

    T Mills 2 years ago

    We got the Burley Hollywell installed in 2012 in our living room in a big and draughty Victorian house. It was used most days from Nov - Apr for four years and I wanted to say how impressed... []

    Stove expert replied: You can get the flue draw measured to check that it matches what is recommended by the manufacturer, if it is higher then having remedial work carried out to rectify this over drawing should improve the performance of the stove.

  • We love our Holywell

    Oonagh O''Brien 2 years ago

    We bought our Holywell Burley stove about 18 months ago after doing a lot of research about which stove to get. We ended up choosing the Holywell. It is absolutely fantastic- warms the main... []

    Stove expert replied: Positive feedback on this stove and it will take time to learn how to get the best from a stove, several factors can alter the performance, fuel quality, weather conditions etc. Patience when a new stove has been installed will usually lead to better performance overall.

  • Burnley answer surprising

    3 years ago

    Had a Burnley Honeywell professionally fitted and within 6 months you can hardly see what is burning on the fire. I rang customer services to be told I had got the fire to Hot..... I have only... []

    Stove expert replied: Glass can become unclear in mainly two ways on stoves: opaque colouration is due to over firing, this can be down to operational error or a flue draw being in excess of the requirements stated by the manufacturer. Normally you will be aware of the stove working hard and not showing signs if the rate of burn when you operate the controls, you are likely to find that the heat being produced is poor as it is being sucked up the chimney. The other scenario is if the stove is being operated on a shut down mode for prolonged periods (air controls being shut or barely open), a spiders like appearance will gradually creep across the glass and can't be removed. Short periods of fast burn as required to ensure the stove gases are removed from the firebox as these will react with the glass if allowed to slumber predominantly rather than operating the stove effectively. Investigate the flue draw if it is the opaque option as this can be addressed. If a spider web appearance then open the airwash more so prevent the gases from staying too long in the firebox. Either are not the fault of the stove.
