Review of Morso Squirrel Cleanheat stove

very happy & very happy again!

R Skipper 12 years ago

We had a Squirrel in our old house and when we moved installing a new one was the 1st project to be completed. We like its chunky look, simple controls and its ability to heat our 5x4 metre lounge easily. It burns wood or coal equally well and will easily stay in over night with a bank of homefire ovals, I have recently been using wood briquettes which emit very good heat - one word of warning though they do get so hot that a flue thermometer is an essential indicator that you are not burning so hot as to damage your stove! Overall we are very pleased with the stove and would happily recommend it to anyone! We are in the process of installing a Charnwood Cove 2b into an extension so it will be interesting to see how they compare.

Stove expert replied: Looking forward to the review of the next installation, it will be good to hear the comparisons.
