Review of Stovax Stockton 8HB boiler stove

Could be better

Lorraine Bird 4 years ago

Bought this stove a couple of years ago. Easy to light and initially gives out a lot of heat however unable to keep it in for 24 hours (lucky to get 12) as ash builds up and riddling mechanism will not clear it. Supposed to run eight radiators but they rarely even get warm and not for any length of time even turning some of them off shows no improvement. Heating control is not calibrated correctly so even were the stove to heat the radiators it would be done on guesswork. Disappointed.
