My Stove

Kathleen O'Grady 6 years ago

This stove was absolutely useless. No heat to room and takes ages to heat water. As well as all this, it uses a colossal amount of fuel. I lit a fire to roast a pig many times without any success. It looked great - picture postcard great! However, after paying 1600 for the stove, I feel it was the most expensive ornament I ever purchased. It is due to go back to the supplier next week.

Stove expert replied: If a stove uuses a great deal of fuel but is nor producing much heat it may be the flue that is causing the problem as the draw may be excessive. This means that the stove works hard, the heat is drawn up the flue before it can radiate into the room. This can be corrected, speak to a flue specialist.
