Charnwood Cove 2 stove

The Charnwood Cove 2 has a large single curved door with large glass panel . The grate converts for wood or multifuel uses. The Cove 2 gives 8kw of heat to the room using the cleanburn technology, and the airwash helps to keep the glass clean.

There are three different base options, low stand, store stand or centre stand. The picture shows the centre stand. The low stand allows the stove to fit into an existing fireplace opening, the store stand allows for logs to be placed beneath the stove, whereas the centre stand is for a freestanding situation.

    Installed in a new build and have provided reliable heat for 10 years - mainly from wood. I have replaced the door rope (our fault not the stove) and the fire bricks. Excellent after sales service... []

    Stove expert replied: Regular checks on consumable parts should be undertaken on stoves and the rope seals replaced when they get hard and loose the ability to seal with the stove body effectively.

  • Poorly designed stove

    Stove expert replied: Are you using well seasoned wood as damp wood will blacken the glass with the most efficient air wash system.

  • Excellent Boiler Stove

    Philip Preen 7 years ago

    Have the Cove 2B (the boiler version) connected to a 300 ltr thermal store. Stove is really easy to light if using properly seasoned wood. Currently using smokeless coal easy to light if using... []

    Stove expert replied: Would recommend emptying the ash pan twice a day if using smokeless fuel and burning for most of the time so that the grate will last longer. If ash builds up under the grates it can shorten the life of it as also so can over-riddling the stove. Ideally leave a bed of ash on top of the grates to protect them from direct heat.
