Review of Charnwood Island II stove

House is now a Home

Margaret Bolger 9 years ago

We finally decided to remove our open fire and put a stove in place. We have the stove installed now for six months and it has made such a difference. It is amazing how much more heat is generated into the house. The stove looks really well and this was one of our worries about replacing the open fire. We thought maybe it would not look as cosy. How wrong we were. The generous glass doors mean you can see the fire burning. It took us a little while to adjust to the right amount of air flow to keep the glass clear but we are now "experts" at keeping the glass clear and the fire glowing. We would recommend this stove to anyone who is considering buying one. Would never return to an open fire. This stove is the business.

Stove expert replied: Great review and one happy customer!
