Never again

Gordon Walker 5 months ago

Klover 18kw insert biomass pellet boiler(all singing all dancing boiler) NOT.

Installed for about 14 months now.Advised it would burn about 1 bag of pellets a day,need cleaned out once a week and would be sufficient for all hot water needs

Let's start with 5 bags a day

Cleaning the fire out almost every day(which by the way is a filthy job(rather clean out old style open coal fire)

All this supplied and installed by klover recommended installer and recommended by ENERGY SAVING TRUST for Rhi payments

Ps

Electricity build has shot up considerably

Stove expert replied: The amount of pellets used will depend on the heat demand in the property. It is important that the stove is serviced regularly like any other boiler. Following a service you should see improved results from your stove. If the stove has been serviced then we would recommend you contact your supplier to take a look at the stove, some settings may need to be changed.
