Review of Charnwood Island II stove
excellent if not run hot
excellent heat output but if you run at full heat to obtain 8kw rating the throat plate bends and the fire bricks disintigrate within one season and are very expensive to replace. too expensive to have these faults
Stove expert replied: No stove should be run on maximum at all times there should only be short periods of fast burn with slumber periods in between. Ideally the short periods of fast burn should be 15 - 20mins max. If you are operating the stove flat out all the time then a bigger stove may have been a better option so that the nominal / average output meets the requirements for the space you are heating rather than relying on the maximum output of the stove.
