Having researched what would work - and look good - in our existing small fireplace alcove, we came across Stovefitters and bought an Ekol ApplePie 4kW Wood Burning Stove complete with Duraflue top of the range liner and fitting kit - the whole caboodle. It arrived exactly as promised, beautifully packed and all intact. I contacted Stovefitters with an enquiry over the ability of the stove to operate as a multi fuel and received a very rapid satisfactory reply, impressed. Initially I intended to fit the stove myself, confident that the online manual provided all I required. My local authority Building Control, however, wanted to charge £300+VAT to sign it off so we were recommended a local Hetas certified company by our regular chimney sweep who charged £450 to fit and certify so chose that option. The fitters were clearly impressed with the quality of the kit, they’d not seen an Ekol Apple Pie before, the flue in particular was heavier duty than they’d seen before. All installed and signed off, we love the stove, it looks great in a small alcove and we can’t wait to whack a pizza in there sometime, something else the fitters hadn’t come across before. Would heartily recommend, great value and excellent quality.
