You’ve just done exactly what Bowland Stoves did. Listed your own personal favourites or best sellers. “It’s beyond me” 

I did say it is my best sellers.   That Aduro 9 looks a nice stove,  air wash down the side glass panels is something many similar models do not have.   Down the front glass yes but not the side panels.

Not the greatest photo but my little 3.4KW Morso is superb. The only issue I have is keeping the house cool enough!

Tidy! ? that their smallest stove? Thinking of putting a tiny stove in my garage, looked at lots of other heating options but keep coming back to a stove. I’m tempted to find an older small stove and refurb it (to a certain degree) as to avoid the modern emissions scandal. Want to be able to shut it down more than that what the one in the house allows.

Why?

Hey OSP, the one in the house is great, no complaints other than it still draws (imo) that little bit too much air. It produces a roaring flame, not what i’d call a gentle rolling flame. And in turn over a period would burn more logs than necessary, and makes room temperature hard to control and at times, unbearable. If i was to put coal on for an overnight burn, then the fire would be out in the morning. I’m talking 7 hours and all embers are gone it draws that much. This is due to the defra kit. Cant and wont complain on its efficiency and emission control, never get a blackened glass and the ash bed is always even and hardly any! (Pain sometimes when i clean stove out cos wood relies on good bed to draw)

Okay first the reason for the "defra kit" is there to ensure  a secondary flame is ensured all the time volatiles  are still being evolved by the logs, otherwise they smoulder' smouldering results in a few problems.

 

As  long as only over fire air is provided (often by the "defra kit") the char will then burn out slowly but unlikely to burn through the night. This is why I depend on heat stored in the brickwork of my chimney, the Swedes have done this for years by encasing their stoves from floor to ceiling with heavy tiles, the americans have reinvented this as the masonry stove.

 

It may just be your flue has too much draw, on commercial stuff we used  flue  draught stabilisers which automatically bled air into the flue to reduce the draw/depression caused by the column of less dense flue gases above. I don't know if they are approved for domestic wood stoves.

Its a multifuel stove, but when installing it we had to drop the box from inside the stove and swap out / replace the original adjustment control slide with the modified defra control one.
HONESTLY.... its the worst piece of engineering known to man! And cost £110 (its a hole punched / pressed piece of steel with a very poorly welded on lever for left/right control) Would of been better left alone. It serves no purpose other than to loose over half of the open / shut control of the stove, and like i say, lets copious amounts of air through. I have been tempted to refit the original control but have refrained form doing so for insurance and regulation purposes. But listening to most on here it appears that no insurance companies are bothered???!
I do try to play by the rules in most cases but this one has tempted me loads.
