Review of Stovax Stockton 5 stove

Cold and quick burning

Alex Ferguson 6 years ago

We had this stove installed in October. Following great recommendations... would not recommend now having used it. It seems to burn through good seasoned hardwood very quickly and let''s off little heat. Also the draw is very fiddly and has to be fully opened to get it started properly. Airwash is terrible.

Stove expert replied: If a stove is working hard and producing little heat it usually means that the stove draw is excessive and there will be little control. The controls will struggle to make any difference as the air is being pulled through the stove up the flue before it can heat the body and radiate into the room. I would suggest further investigations to eliminate the stove being at fault when it sounds very much that the flue is the problem.
