Review of Dunsley Yorkshire stove
Great stove, struggle to get it to burn overnight
We have had this stove for over 2 years now and it's a real workhorse in our house. The back boiler is plumbed into our heating system that includes GSHP and solar thermal and heat store. I would estimate that half or more of our heat and hot water in our house comes from the stove and it goes hard most days during the winter. It is a good stove and will last. It is efficient and can be run hard.I do have problems getting it to run overnight, even if I shut down all the vents to the lowest setting at 10pm and fill it up with hardwood it is normally dead by the morning (7 - 8am), any suggestions here would be appreciated. The firebox might be a wee bit bigger too as I would like to be able to cut logs to a larger size but I guess this would make it a larger stove in both physical size and heat output. It can be a bit slower to get going than another stove that we have but I think this is just the way that the air is drawn out the back down the bottom causes this. Overall though we are very happy with it and as I said it's not just a feature in our house, it's a workhorse that earns it's keep.
Stove expert replied: Over night burn for woodburning stoves can be difficult and is not recommended due to the deposits that are created on a slow burn setting which woukd need to be used, if it is a multifuel stove then try using smokeless fuels for over-night and then wood for the day time.
