Review of Stratford EB 12 HE stove
Great Boiler Stove
Had this stove installed for over a year now (One Winter's use) and I love it. Heats up Rads easy but you do need one in the room its in as the stove doesn't give out much heat when the thermostat reduces the air flow.Build quality is great with attractive design. The stove does use a lot of wood and doesn't seem to work very well with smokeless fuel. I've used Taybrite in many of my previous stoves with great success but with this model I just cant seem to get the water to a high temperature, even with all the air vents open. Overall I'm very please.
Stove expert replied: It may be worth trying an alternative smokeless fuel as they do vary greatly, otherwise seems to be working well.
