good stove

Dorin Cazac 7 years ago

Hi all,

we got this stove 7 years ago and at the beginning we didn't like it ( we didn't know how to use it to :) ) ... but now is a different story, when the stove is on we hardly need any oil heating in the house and it is not a small house, the temperature is a healthy 17 to 18*C. It's free heating and hot water all winter :) and I burn mainly timber as not recommended (burns to hot for the fire bricks) but couple of coals here and there does no harm but not to much at any one time is ok.
