Absolutely brilliant stove and cheap to run, my neighbour is on oil in the same size house and their heating bill is £300 a year more on a ˜timed" heating system, my rads are hot 24/7 would definitely recommend. I use phurnacite and my stove will tick over for 15 hours without going out, mine is lit in September and doesn't go out till March.

Stove expert replied: Great comments. Do remember that monthly you should let the stove out and clean thoroughly to insure that the flue remains clear and unobstructed. Debris will fall down the flue system and can build up hence the need for regular cleaning.
