  • Delighted with stove

    Helen Whitehouse 5 years ago

    I have a double-sided Consort 7 fitted about 3 years ago now. It is multi-fuel and took me a while to get the hang of it. I now burn mainly kiln-dried wood with a few lumps(3) of Eco 50 Home
    -fire (or a straw log) to keep the heat in the stove for when I forget to put more wood on. The controls took a while to master and if I am not careful to properly regulate the airflow, the doors can soot up. Because the fire is in a alcove in the middle of the room, I use an Eco-fan on top of it to disperse the heat. This is a wonderful contraption which starts to turn when the stove heats up. Now all parts of the room are cosy. Suspect a single sided stove is easier to cope with but I needed a double-sided one! It serves it's purpose and is certainly much much better than the open fire.

  • So disappointed I could cry

    Odette Smallbone 6 years ago

    We saved up and renovated our ground floor and put in a double-sided consort 7. We had it professionally installed, have allowed all the minimum spacings from nearest walls etc and even throwing
    £20 of wood on it a night does not go near heating our room up. After sitting with blankets and hot water bottles, we bought a little 2kw electric heater and that heats the room after 30 mins. So unhappy, I would love to know about returning our stove - is that possible?

  • Struggling with this stove.

    Patricia Mullin 5 years ago

    Professionally fitted, I am struggling to get this stove to perform as it should. To begin with the instruction booklet is poor and not particularly well written or clear, particularly with
    naming of the parts and what they do. The woodburner appears to have parts that actually block the air flow. I have other wood burners that work well. This one is a bit of a mystery we only ever get either no burn or too fast a burn and never get to the flames lapping the glass, which one month in is filthy. I think I will have to get the installer back. Even when fully burning it is not providing much in the way of heat.

    Stove expert replied: Hopefully this is now sorted after having the installer back, it is likely to be something to do with the installation but please check that the internal parts have been fitted correctly.
