Stove expert replied: Before purchasing a replacement ensure that you get the heating system re-calculated so that you will not be disappointed, this stove may not be large enough for the system it is supplying. If you find that the room in which the boiler is installed does not get hot enough, consider having a radiator in there for back up, have a thermostatic radiator valve on it so that it will only work when required or if the temperature in the room is not high enough. It may be worth looking at the fuel used as they vary greatly and an alternative may be more effective in producing the necessary heat. Is the chimney lined? This can make a vast difference also.
We have had this stove in three different houses and find it to be very comfortable to use and we love the look of it in our current 1877 home.
