Review of Classic Harmony 1 multifuel stove

Classic i Harmony 3 + 7.5W boiler

Debbie And Dave 7 years ago

We really did our research for this beast and so far so good it seems to have paid off. It is very efficient, easy to use and is heating the house effectively. We bought this stove 1 month ago and apart from a slight hiccup at the beginning when it was leaking due to a faulty part from the manufacturers it now feeds 3 radiators, 2 of them are double, and we are looking to add another rad. It heats our new kitchen extension which is a room roughly 7 metres by 4 metres but we leave the doors open to the rest of the downstairs. It lights within seconds and heats up very quickly. It has a 8.5W rating to the room which heats our space easily. The stove's side door is excellent making it very easy to feed the fire whilst keeping any smoke from escaping which does happen when you use the front opening. We can get logs that are 22" long into the firebox which is very large. The airwash system is great but will get better with experience. So far I couldn't fault our decision. Burning overnight - don't know haven't tried it - ignore rating.
