Esse 350 stove
The Esse 350 stove will fit into a standard fire place opening as long as the fire back has been removed.
It has a bigger fire box than the 300 model , so can take longer logs.
The Esse 350 stove needs an airvent into the room.
This stove is a convector model.
- Height: 620mm

Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuel can and often will leave particulates on surfaces due to its makeup, it mainly occurs when loading and re-loading and when riddling to de-ash the stove. Different fuels will have more or less ash so it is worth trialling a few brands to see which you find is best in your situation. It is also best to de-ash with the door closed and then leave for say 5 mins for the ash to settle before removing the ashpan. Do you use an ash caddy or remove by taking the ashpan through the house to dispose of the ash as this can lead to fine particles becoming airborne? This is not caused by the stove but by the fuel type being used.

door clearance to open and of-course insulate the fire back with home-made aluminium foil / rock wool envelopes to give maximum heat output. This stove's convector system really works well to deliver 'red hot' air into the room, even with a small fire burning.It burns best on small logs and they last a long time compared to using an open fire.

the cast iron frame. It is only stated by some companies that list this on their website. I did not see this prior to my purchase. My stove is one month old the glass has developed a Bloom at the bottom, I have contacted Esse and was told the glass is not under the guarantee.The cost of a new glass is £54 This company has no Good Will @ Customer services. Not recommended.
Stove expert replied: Glass and consumable items are not covered my manufacturers, the glass bloom (if a milky appearance) is likely to be caused by overdrawing of the stove and is not a manufacturing defect (it may be an installation problem or operator error). It would not happen on one firing but over a period of time and means that usage is exposing the stove to higher than normal working temperatures. This should be investigated fully as further damage may occur. You should be able to have the stove slumbering with a gentle flame, with short periods of fast burn and not a raging fire all the time.
a part when they are clearly fully aware that there is a problem with the part and hold proper quality ones for the customer to buy as replacements. To add insult to injury, although only a few months old, one of the side fire bricks has cracked - far too soon with only weekend usage over 4 months. At this rate I will have paid for the stove twice by the time I have a replaced the internal parts. General view of Esse - poor quality parts to the point of being 'not fit for purpose' and short sighted customer service.
Stove expert replied: The stove fan needs to sit flat on top of the stove so I do not think a fan would be suitable for this model.
Stove expert replied: A stove running 24/7 should have at least two short periods of fast burn (15 - 20mins) twice a day to burn off any deposits produced in the slow burning periods. A stove should be let out once a month to check that the airways are clear. A Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a requirement for any stove installation and should be retrofitted if there is not one currently installed. Great review and good savings being made.
only cover the body of the stove against splitting or cracking.
Stove expert replied: Warranty on stoves does not cover glass however, normally after such a short period of time a replacement would be supplied either by the manufacturer or by the supplier perhaps at a reduced rate as a gesture of goodwill. Regarding the problems you are experiencing when lighting on a still day may be due to the flue which should be investigated further as there are ways to improve the draw. Room ventilators are a good option for providing the extra air required for a stove, have you got this or just a vent direct through the wall?
Stove expert replied: Heat out put good, stove working well. Good feedback for this model.
