Review of Harmony 23

Eventually we have a working Harrmony stove

AndyMac1973 6 years ago

Moved into a house with a Harmony stove which the previous occupants raved about, burning smokeless fuel and reducing their heating bill considerably. Unfortunately for us this stove was the most stressful part of the house move. Sometimes it would burn badly, if at all. The house smelt of smoke, the glass was black and we had cracked hands from constantly washing the soot off! Spoke to Euroheat who suggested a chimney sweep. £900 later, a brush stuck up chimney and a new chimney liner and it works like a dream.

So some tips: if it won't light, for £ 40 get a sweep in.

Don't burn house coal like our previous occupants who had set fire to the chimney and ruined the liner.

Overall it seems to be doing the job, burning well and even the glass is staying clean,

Stove expert replied: Household coal is not recommended on a closed appliance, smokeless fuels should be used instead.
