Review of Ecoboiler seb20

works well

John 6 years ago

I have had this stove since 2009 connected via a neutralizer to my system that also has an oil boiler .

Its beginning to age now, the front bars are bowing into the door catch, the feds are distorted and the glass has broken after a log only just touched it the glass was showing a slight crazing .

All that said, a detached 3 bed house only costs each year £350 to heat in oil 9 bags of duck eggs at £17 each the rest is begged borrowed and stolen wood.

The newer stoves have a new air feed easy boost built into the door this should not require the door to be open on start up.

Stove expert replied: For the bars and grates to distort quickly would normally imply that this stove has been over-drawn on more than one occasion (the glass crazing is also another symptom of this), it might be worth you getting a flue draught reading taken.
