  • Firefox 8 twin door

    Dominic 7 years ago

    It looks fantastic and heats the whole bottom floor of the house. As the bottom floor heats up we open the door to the upstairs and allow the heat to warm up the rest of the house. Very easy... []

    Stove expert replied: Disappointing that the stove is not built true, but the performance overtakes this for the customer. Nice honest review.

  • heat not circulating

    Steve 7 years ago

    The stove looks brillant in our living room. We were advised to go for the 8 rather than the 5, due to the reason that it takes slightly larger logs and if the room got too hot we could just... []

    Stove expert replied: There should be a minimum gap of 150mm at the back, and either side with 300mm above the stove to allow for the generated heat to radiate freely. If you do not have this then it is likely to be a factor as to why you are disappointed with the heat generated and it may be worth looking at using a rear flue installation so that the stove will be more in the room!

  • Fantastic value for money

    John MacEachen 8 years ago

    My girlfriend and I bought out first home in early 2009. Its a farmhouse dating from around 1890, with various bolt on extensions. Located in Perthshire, Scotland. Two storey. Kitchen/diner,... []

    Stove expert replied: Household coal is not recommended on closed appliances as it can block the airwash system, it also burns with a taller flame that can distort the internal components. Might be worth sticking to smokeless to ensure longevity of this product. Good review of performance. DIY installtions need to be undertaken with the utmost care and needs to be signed off by Building Control. Don't forget to install a CO2 alarm.
