‘I have just installed my brand new SIA Eco design ready Woodford 5kw (recently approved by HETAS) and I have to say I am very impressed. Several things actually please me, firstly and most importantly my fuel consumption has dropped 3 fold. I’m literally putting 3 x less fuel on the Woodford compared to my old stove that wasn’t SIA Eco Design Ready. Secondly the build quality is second to none, being made in England you’d expect the quality to be high but this usually comes with a high price but not in this case, the Woodford is probably the most competitively priced stove in its class.’
‘I also love all the features you really do get a lot of stove for your money, I particularly like the smooth control and how much range and controllability that give you.’
Excellent service and arrived on time as promised. Really pleased with the quality of the Silvacore flue.
Would definitely recommend and use again.
Really pleased with the price, excellent product quality and speedy delivery.
I’ve owned and fitted many stoves over the years and this one rates very highly for its build quality.
Really pleased with the stove which has modern looks and a big glass window so the fire looks great. The heat output is amazing for a 4kw stove and so much better than the stove we had before.
So I bought this a few months ago, but have only recently gotten it in and working. I did a DIY install, and this stove was pretty easy to install, and was signed off by building control.
First the positives: The stove is well made, solid and looks really good. I was really happy with it when it arrived. It was well packaged and as mentioned easy to install. At first, I was skeptical if this stove was actually an 8kw, as its the same size as many 5kw stoves I have seen. I think the main difference is the size of firebox. You can easily get between 4 - 5 meduim sized logs in at once, although this would be running at max. I'm running it with 2 - 3 logs at a time. The heat output is really good, and warms the room quckly.
Negatives: Unfortunatly there are negatives with this stove, but they aren't deal breakers. Firstly, the airwash. I can see the purpose of the airwash system, and it is part of the reason I bought this stove, but for me, it isn't that impressive. I always run my stove up to temerature, and leave the airwash open but the glass always needs cleaning the next day. An airwash doesn't eleminate the need to clean the glass, but it should limit the number of times you need to clean it. Sometimes unseasoned wood can cause this, but I am burning wood at a moisture level of 10 - 11%, so I am dissapointed with this system. Secondly, the primary vent "the one on the door" actually causes damage to the paint. The bolt holding the vent together, when reasonably tight, drags along the outter edge of the stove, removing the paint, which I find frustrating. The bolt holding this vent together is also perminantly loose, which I find slightly unusual. It is a balancing act to keep it lose enough not to scratch the paint and tight enough that it doesn't come off mid burn.
Overall this is a really good mid range stove, and I would recommend. My negative points might not bother some people, but they may help you decide if the stove is right for you.
We liked the look of this stove and when I found out it was 84% efficient, I was sold! We had already bought the chimney lining from Stovefitters Warehouse and they had the stove at a good price so we came back. Julian and his team have been brilliant - loads of assistance and advice, with excellent service. Thanks very much!
Brilliant product, amazing product, fast delivery and great communication throughout. Will definitely use this company again.
I ordered the 1 x SCENARIO 6 twin wall glue system and received all the items including a plan from Julian. All the parts arrived in good time and when stated. Unfortunately one of the pipes was damaged. However once I informed Julian about this a new one was shipped with no issues or questions.
I have asked numerous questions about my install and have always had a fast and suitable response. I would recommend Stovefitter Manual as all the parts went together really easily and quickly. I would definitely use them again.
Great quality stove and fittings. Delivery was efficient and the protective packaging was very good. Very efficient service from Stovefitter's Warehouse!
The ivar 8 stove is not only ideal for our lounge; is also a nice piece of room
furniture .Arran and Julian could not be more helpful,with their knowledge and
We recently purchased the necessary bits and pieces to install a wood burner in our static caravan to prevent us from having another freezing winter whilst we renovate a house. The twin wall was obviously a major factor in the installation and having ordered the things we thought we needed we were then emailed by Stovefitters to say we had missed a couple of key fitting bands necessary for the installation of the twin wall section. This was vital to the fitting and had we not be advised we needed them we would have been left with an open roof and unable to complete the fit in one go. The service from stove fitters has been exceptional from the online advice made available, the easy ordering process, the followup email with yet more great advice, the phone call to add other things that we needed, to the fast delivery. We really couldn't recommend them highly enough. To top it all we are now snug in our caravan for winter!
Received stove within time set and so happy with the stove itself. Now fitted and enjoying the heat. Looking forward to winter this year for the first time ever.
Very good communication,if call wasn’t answered received call back the next day,very helpfull,ordered flavel Arundel stove,recommended the better quality liner,which I ordered along with full fitting kit
.great quality,all arrived on due date,fully wrapped on pallet
All up and running now,very happy. bring on the winter
I bought the Saltfire log burner back in July and although it's been hard, I waited until tonight to light it. Its been well worth the wait. It lit first time, after watching YouTube videos on how to do it properly. I'm only burning kindle at the moment and soft wood pallets that I cut up. Its burning at 400f at the moment and I'm roasting. If anyone is contemplating buying this stove, I would say don't wait any longer, just buy it. I'm so happy I did.
The guys at Stove Fitters were really helpful with technical advice and the twin wall arrived promptly and is great quality.
Second stove and fitting pack bought through stovefitters and the service was excellent. All arrived on time and in perfect condition. Staff friendly again and great value for money. Highly recommend!
When looking for a stove we wanted a stove that also was in balance with the opening and looked part of the room setting. Having done considerable research
and speaking numerous times to Julian Patrick of Stovefitters we went for the
DG Ivar 8 ( 8kw+ ) If Julian was not in he always returned our calls .
Very efficient service would recommend
Really good looking stove, with large glass and the benefit of multi-fuel options. Stovefitter's service has been good, with an installation query handled swiftly by Julian. Just a shame I missed out on free delivey. Due to be installed tomorrow, so will update review after first fire.
The service & information received from Stove Fitters Warehouse online store was second to none!! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a multifuel stove. The Flavel Arundel supplied is a Fantastic product. Extremely well built, with the contemporary look, that we were after. Thanks to all the team & keep up the good work!
Stove was delivered quickly, and looked every bit as good as on the site! Really easy to use, and chucks out a ton of heat. The 'widescreen' view is beautiful. Very happy, would definitely recommend this stove, and this company, to others.
Julian and Aaron were most patient with me and took the time to answer all the queries I raised, they even telephone missed calls back, wow, what service! I especially appreciated their help when I'd ordered an extra cowl for another chimney and discovered I'd asked for the wrong size.
