Review of Stratford EB 12 HE stove

EB 12

Eeeeesh 8 years ago

A nice looking stove but have fitted two in the last month. The one thing I will say is the heat to the rads is excellent getting 7-8 roasting hot rads, but absolutely no heat to the room. I have left 6" at the sides and 4" at the back and 12" at the top. Very disappointed In the heat to the room especially for the price of the stove.

Stove expert replied: It is always good to have a radiator in the room to insure that enough heat is generated as once the water and heating are up to temperature the stove will automatically close controlled by the thermostat.
