Review of Langdale Stove

Looks lovely but the glass is always very dirty

Emma Lilley 5 years ago

This fire gives out a lot of warmth and looks lovely but we cannot keep the glass clean it is always black, we only burn kiln dried logs but the clean burn does not work at all.

Stove expert replied: Please check that there is plenty of air in the room as this may be the cause, check the output of stove and amount of free air that is required for this. It sounds like the gases are not getting away from the firebox effectively hence the fuel is burning too slowly causing glass discoloration, a stove thermometer will also mean you can check how the stove is operating so this would also prove a beneficial purchase.
