  • A nightmare to use and unsafe.

    We have had our firebelly stove for just over a year. We wish we had gone with another brand. It smokes when opening the door to load but the main thing is we can not leave it to burn out over... []

    Stove expert replied: That's a shame Jessica. There are a few things you can do about this and they are mainly to do with the chimney - in reality the issues you describe are more to do with the chimney and the installation than the stove itself. Of course how heavily a stove is baffled ie how much it restricts the flow up the chimney, will have an effect and means that you need a chimney with a good draw, and the size of the door does have an effect Downdraught can often be helped by raising the chimney higher - so consider that. There are also cowls that stop downdraught perhaps the best type s called a veddette. It's worth opening a window and seeing if that helps with smoking into the room when you open the stove door - if it does then you might need a vent to the room to supply extra air. This would be especially the case if you have a well sealed house, double glazing, etc. Hope there is something there that may help.

  • Firebelly double sided stove - fantastic stove and easily heats two large rooms

    Derek Petrie 7 years ago

    I bought this stove to heat two large rooms - living and kitchen/diner. We live in rural Scotland so it get's pretty cold in the winter months. We had a fair amount of building work done to... []

    Stove expert replied: On the windy days take more care with the air controls as they may need to be adjusted to allow less than normal amounts of air into the stove so that it does not overdraw. A flue damper may be a good option to prevent over-drawing long term. Otherwise a great review.
