Review of Jotul F 500 stove

Jotul F500

This stove is in a north facing cold room, and it has transformed the room into a cosy living area. We also have another stove in our living room, so sometimes the draw on both chimneys can cause a back/down draught to occur. Excellent stove and quality.

Stove expert replied: It might be a good idea to fit room ventilation to both the rooms with stoves. To see if it solves the problem just open a window in each room and see if that does the trick.
