Review of Classic Harmony 1 multifuel stove

Not very warm

Theresa Carruthers one year ago

Have bought a cottage and inherited an Efel mk1. Reading the reviews would expect it to be warm but is hardly kicking out any heat. Needs replacement glass as cracked but apart from that, any thoughts?

Stove expert replied: A cracked glass will allow air to get into the firebox that is normally prevented by a solid glass panel. The amount of heat that is produced will depend on the quality and type of fuel and where the air controls are set. Have you had the chimney swept since moving in? Have you got the manual for guidance?
