  • Cracking little stove

    Dawn F 2 years ago

    In terms of good value, I struck very lucky finding such a bargain second hand. I can''t believe anyone would take one out, mine is so exceptional. I have gauged that I use about two tons of
    wood over a winter, and I don''t stint. Overnight smokeless fuel has amounted, on average, to four 25KG bags each winter. I''d say that''s pretty economical for heat and unlimited hot water! I can''t say enough good things about the Woodwarm.

    Stove expert replied: Great review, free water and plenty of heat, what more could you ask for?

  • Absolutely delighted

    Brenda Ashman 8 years ago

    We had this Woodwarm fitted in May this year, little did we know that our gas boiler was going to give a lot of trouble, so over the last month, the woodburner has been pressed into use to heat the house. It is brilliant, looks good in the room, and is a pleasure to use, so easy to light, and very controllable, and heat output is amazing. We would not hesitate to recommend this fire to anyone who may be undecided. It is probably the best addition we have made to the house ever. Also the glass keeps clean, and the fire becomes addictive to watch, better than some TV programmes. Go out and buy one.

    Stove expert replied: Sounds a lovley stove, good review.

  • The Woodwarm Fireview should be a Top Candidate if you have the Money

    Andrew Geoffrey 5 years ago

    Previously had a Morso squirrel and the glass used to soot up very fast. This Woodwarm is much better - an almost perfect view every time - especially enjoyable for a ex fireman! I am quite
    conservative with fuel, but it still kicks out plenty of heat. Top tip: I decided to try on some wood briquettes which I purchased in Sheffield and these burn like hardwood (I'd recommend these). If I had to make criticisms they would be 1. the handles get too hot to touch (need to use the tool provided) 2. the ash tray fills up quickly and needs emptying about every two fires 3. the price is high. The criticisms are only minor and it is still an excellent stove worth paying for.

    Stove expert replied: The ash pan should be emptied regularly to prevent the ash from building up close the the grate system, ideally every day. If the ash builds up close to the grate this can lead to premature failure as the air is unable to circulate to cool the grate down.

  • woodwarm 5kw

    Janet Thompson 5 years ago

    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%.

  • Wonderful Woodburner

    Brenda Ashman 7 years ago

    We had the Wood Burner fitted in May 2012, and since then the house has been transformed, we have a 12 years old house with good insulation, but since using the Woodwarm, the whole house has benefited, and the lounge, which is 19 feet by 15 feet can get very toasty. The central heating shuts off very quickly in the evenings, and has saved us a lot of gas. Even upstairs without the radiators working is quite comfortable, which before would have been uncomfortable without radiators working. We would recommend Woodwarm to anybody, as we do here locally IT HAS TRANSFORMED OUR HOUSE Best investment we have ever made. Go ahead and treat yourself

  • wonderfull woodwarm

    S.holden 8 years ago

    Super stove this is my fifth year of ownership,had no problems ,never had a dirty glass once. I am using the rear flue outlet to Isokern flue liners and burn wood only and make sure it is less
    than 20% moisture content. Well done woodwarm on a superbly designed stove with a great view of the fire and superbly made and well thought out controls, rather than some of the fiddly affairs on other models.
