Review of Charnwood C 5 stove

Efficient

Nick Thompson 2 years ago

We burn logs of less than 15% moisture which throw out loads of heat but we cannot keep the stove in overnight. I would welcome comments

Stove expert replied: As this stove is a Defra Approved model it will always have air passing through it so it is unlikely to stay in overnight, it is not recommended for wood to be burnt at a very low setting for prolonged periods even if the wood is dry and seasoned.
