Review of Woodwarm Fireview 5 Slender stove

researched which fire to buy for a small room, survey carried out, visits and comparisons completed - I made my purchase. What a disappointment, most heat goes up the chimney. Works best with door open. No vents for hot air to come out of. Bought expensive IQfan to circulate the air, but that was a waste of money. My advice would be to choose a different woodburner

Stove expert replied: Do get the flue draw checked as it sounds like the flue draw is excessive and is pulling the heat out of the stove before it can heat the stove / room. Can you shut the stove down to a slumber mode? Make sure that the fuel you are using is dry and well seasoned with a moisture content of less that 20%.
