Had this stove for two winters now and it is fab. Only burning seasoned wood, which more than heats our cold room.

I have also had an issue with smoke coming back into the house on occasions when initially trying to get the fire going. Any ideas? Is it due to cold flu?

Stove expert replied: Yes most probably due to a cold flue, try leaving the door slightly open initially as this will help to lift the flue gasses ans warm the flue faster. Check that the cowl on the chimney is the correct one and also check that you have enough air in the room.
