I have four Edwardian fireplaces (100 years old). One of them is now in the garage awaiting a buyer (it's far too valuable to throw away). In its place is a modern, efficient, British-made multi-fuel stove. The Stovax Stockton 4 has a maximum output of just 4kW and it's very dinky but it weighs an absolute TON. Steve and I nearly ruptured our backs to carry it in. Clean-burn design allows the burning of smoky fuels like wood in smokeless zones, like where I live. Naturally, the installation has to be certificated. I now have TWO carbon monoxide detectors and a rather desirable certification plate behind my cellar door. It feels good to be certified ;-)
Unashamed plugs go to Coalwood Heating Centre of Cheadle Heath, installation craftsman Stephen Pickford of Sandbach and chimney sweep J. Pomroy of Woodley. Better tradesmen you could not wish to find. They are true professionals who inspire confidence, who care about their customers and who do a first class job. The fact that they are certified and approved is reflected in their work. What more could you wish for when playing with fire?
The photographic record is here.
