    Hi folks

    I'm in the market for a couple of wood stoves (or multi fuel, but no plans to burn anything other than wood). I'm very drawn to Dowling Stoves, but there aren't a great many reviews out there. And obviously they do things a bit differently than most stoves you see from the better known names.

    So I wondered if anyone here has one if they'd be happy to share their experiences? Or for that matter, even if you don't have one but have thoughts about them it would be great to hear fro you...

    Many thanks

    A quick look at their website and theres no mention of Ecodesign compliance, so not sure about their efficiency/emmissions??

    They certainly look different some would say industrial,quirky; I looked at them a few years ago when I was after a pedestal stove. I eventually opted for a Jotul cast steel one with a ceramic lining, which I prefer, and glass on three sides.
    Like philedge I'd query their compliance.
    OK, great - thanks for the replies. That's something I'll look into...

    ...Or else buy one before 2022 ;)

    I know nothing on this make except quick look at the website but what I would recommend is a stove with it own individual air intake from outside. Keeps the air you have heated in the room, and you can have any size above 5Kw without having to have an airbrick or other vent into the room causing draughts and loss of heat. I have 2 Heta wood burning stoves and we are very pleased with them.

    Can't imagine they are especially clean burning. There doesn't appear to be any insulation inside them. Modern clean-burning stoves are partly insulated to increase the firebox temps to aid complete combustion. Without high temps many of the volatile gases will not burn so go up the flue and increase air pollution
