Review of Stratford EB 12 HE stove

Really nice stove

Phil Chadwick 3 years ago

We fitted one of these a few months ago, connected to a thermal store. The plan was to use it to supplement the gas boiler, but so far we''ve been able to heat this very large house using just the woodburner. It does use a lot of wood to do that, but that''s inevitable.

It draws like a demon and gets up to heat really, really quickly. It''s helpful to have the thermal store and a fairly sophisticated control system, but it can comfortably supply 15 radiators once it''s up to heat.

Very well made, doesn''t smoke and is easy to use

Stove expert replied: Please make sure that you do not over-draw the stove - can you shut it down if you want it to. If the flue draw is excessive this could lead to damage so worth checking you are able to shut it to a slumbering mode. Great review.
