  • Great Service from a Squirrel

    Terry Roberts one year ago

    We have had our multi-fuel squirrel for 15 years and it continues to give great service. It heats the room (it''s cold here in the Scottish Highlands) and also the water and a radiator! However... []

    Stove expert replied: Use only dry seasoned wood with a moisture content of less than 20%. There are some woods that give better results and a few of these are: Ash, Beech, Hawthorn, Rowan, Thorn, Yew

  • May not last

    3 years ago

    I notice that your high-rated reviews are from people who have had their stove for a comparatively short time. You wait! Ours is 16 years old and experiencing major problems: cracked collar... []

    Stove expert replied: 16 years is a reasonable length of time to have a stove and obviously the stoves longevity depends on how it is used, length of burning time, fuel, flue draw and quality of build etc. If these problems have manifested themselves of late the stove has given you reasonable service.

  • Best stove in the world

    I Jessop 3 years ago

    Bought one for our house around ten years ago, absolutely amazing. Unlike some of the cheep ones from china, this has a really tight seal meaning I can shut down with good dry softwood and it... []

    Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuel is recommended on a close appliance and not household coal which burns with long flames and subjects the internal components to higher than normal working temperatures. Great review.

  • Get your Vents set up correctly and it will burn for ages on coal.

    Jason Manlove 3 years ago

    After much internet trawling and checking out lots of reviews this stove was the out and out 5kw stove to have. Looks stunning and made of an high grade cast iron which retains heat very well... []

    Stove expert replied: Great comments, very efficient fuel usage but do please give short periods of fast burn regularly as it is not good for the flue system to be slumbering 24/7.

  • Dog has left the room

    David Irving 5 years ago

    Did all the prep work myself and got a HETAS guy to do the final fit, just this afternoon. Fired up in less the a minute. Now the dog has just left the room as it is too hot. Brilliant buy.

  • superb stove

    Mark Black 7 years ago

    I had looked at many other stoves and had been planning on purchasing one for quite some time, the Chinese models were poorly finished and the door catches struck me as rather flimsy. I saw... []

    Stove expert replied: Known fact that most heat on an open fire goes up the chimney, a closed appliance gives you lots of heat even if the stove is quite small.
