Review of Stratford EB 7 HE Stove

Excellent purchase

George Wilson 5 years ago

I live in an old Georgian Farmhouse on the top of a windy hill in Scotland. There are 4 main rooms and a bathroom and 7 radiators.

This little stove working at capacity is well able to meet our need even in the harshest conditions. The filter recommended that we use a stove with a lower output and keep it working rather than try to run a bigger one less efficiently and he was right. When it's cold we burn wood and when its really cold we burn anthracite. In addition to which we make heat out of all theta bits of paper and cardboard that come our way.

We've had it 2.5 years now and are very pleased. It was fitted with a good flue lining and plenty of insulations around it which means that when the chimney is warned up it will run really efficiently.
