We had this installed in mid January to use just as a feature and for colder days to supplement our central heating. It is now February and I am on my third load of logs!

I try and close down the vent so that the logs aren''t burning too fiercely but the slide control is not very precise. I would prefer one with a ratchet mechanism. It is a nice looking stove and i like the big glass door. It certainly kicks out the heat when you open up the vent fully.

Stove expert replied: Running the stove on max should be used with care and for periods of 15 - 20mins only followed by a slower burning period. Depending on how long the stove is lit and on how large a load of logs you have needs to be clearer to say if normal or excessive. You will only get out of a stove what you put into it with regards to the fuel providing the installation falls between the normal parameters for the given stove.
