Review of Charnwood SLX45 stove


Siobhan McConway 10 years ago

Purchased this stove last month. Good heat when up and going. The only problem I have is when refilling the fire, when I open the doors the smoke comes out, is there anything i can do to prevent this.

Stove expert replied: Check that you have an air vent in the room, possibly an anti downdraught cowl may be required. Ask the installer back to check the installation complies to the manufacturers specifications, height of flue, if a liner installed and ventilation requirements.
