Review of Esse 300 stove

Quite pleased

2 years ago

We have had our Esse 300 for seven years and are very pleased with its performance and output. However our chimney must have deteriorated lately, as we are getting condensation staining on the flue in the 1st floor rooms . Is there any way of fitting a liner with this heater? Our installer tells us there isn''t.

Stove expert replied: A flue liner can be dropped down a chimney but it will mean taking the stove out to connect the liner to a short pipe off the stove.
