I have had two HETAS fitters out to look at putting one of these stoves in for me. The first said that it would be a problem but the second one has said that he will not fit them as they do not meet EU regulations....
He also said that they are really designed for workshops and not domestic properties but I certainly wouldnt want to put something that nice into a workshop, what I mean by that comment is that its not really a work horse model..
I have all the instructions and guidance notes and I thought that it all looked ok?

if its a life style choice and your happy to spend several hours a week tending to it cleaning and fetching then great keeping in mind you will need several tonnes a year off free wood to stop it costing a lot more than gas heating
in other words they are expensive to buy and install time consuming to to run and at best a bit more expensive to run than gas[5p a kw] to a lot more than electric [15p a kw]
which specific stove was it

In most rural areas now, many compnies offer a Ton Bag service & will sell you good quality soft or hardwood - most of which is well seasoned. I think you'd be wise to check out fuel supplies first, before looking for a stove.
