above we are very happy with the performance.
Stove expert replied: It might pay to get a flue draw test taken to make sure that it is not in excess of what is required by the manufacturer.

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.

the room it sits in - not pump heat through noisy pipes and clanking valves around your house. Don't bother
Stove expert replied: The split between the room heat and water are clearly stated and perhaps a radiator should have been installed in the room for the extra heat that you require and will depend on the room size. It may be a case of the system needing rebalancing. 4.9kW average heat to room is achievable depending on the fuel being used, how much fuel you put on and making sure the controls are set correctly. Was the system designed and calculated by a heating engineer? It might not be the stove at fault for the lack of heat being generated.
installed , 4 beds , 16 rads installed plus 300 lt hot water tank Net result is no gas bill for winter use over the last 2 year The stove gives around 8kw of heat to water , which is a little less than the total heat lose of the house , hence 900mm of loft insulation Heat to room is a little to much but air controls dampen down well Having read other comments my view is poles apart The stove must be sized to suit the heating load , to big a heating load will result in slow to heat up water , or lack of heat ... I run my stove on a setting of 58 degs , as per H2 panel installation details , hot water tank is set to 55 degs , 2 heat leak radiators fitted , 28 mm flow and return to boiler The only issues I have had was during " testing " the main pump failed , replace pump with better one and works a treat
Stove expert replied: Always get the heat load of the system calculated before purchasing a boiler, it is not worth taking the risk of a stove that can't provide you with the heat required!
up the chimney as there is not enough draw to get it going - then not enough control over the airflow to damp it down. Engineers visit concurred with my opinion as he couldn't get it going...asked for money back
Stove expert replied: I would suggest that you get a flue expert to advise you further as not having enough air / then having too much air seems to indicate that that installation is at fault. Nothing changes with the stove but the weather conditions vary and seems to be affecting the stove quite dramatically.
