"If you like a lot of smoke in your house"

Very Unsatisfied

I had this stove for 2 years and am at my wits end. Had a professional look at it and he had no idea why it smokes so bad. I’m sitting in a smoked filled house after trying to add wood and it’s 25 outside. Tried to put a bad review on Lowes and they won’t allow it. The creosote buildup is incredible. A week ago I modified it to use the ash clean out as a fresh air inlet and that helped. At least the fire starts easier and the glass does not get too bad that you can’t see thru it. Amazing this company stays in business. I will probably replace this one after paying $1100 for it. If you are considering buying a New England(er) stove look elsewhere. As a side note, the good reviews on here and Lowes site seem to be written by a professional publicist. Rant over. Thanks for reading.

Had an Englander for 30+ years now. Great stove, best things about it; double doors open wide and accepts large logs. Heats great, burns through the night, easy to start, good draft. Bad stuff, fan is loud, has an 8' flue.

Only when we had installed the stove and tried our first fire, did we realize that it is necessary to start with the door open. This might not have been so bad if it had been for a few minutes. However, I sat with the fire for over 30 minutes and was not able to close the door or the fire would go out. Doing some searching online, I see that the other airwash systems have primary air draft from the front of the stove. The only intake for this is at the back, and the system opens and closes with a rod. There is no visible indication of how much it is open in any position. I called customer service and the person there basically blew off my concerns with the opinion that we needed to install outside air intake. I do not live in a manufactured home. I have used wood burning stoves for 40 years and there has never been a problem with our draft. On their web site, they brag "excellent customer service." I did not have that and it was not just "incompetent," it was dismissive and disrespectful. So disappointed to think about uninstalling and having to haul back for the return to store.

We used a Hearthstone in our former home it cost app 2100 we were satisfied with it but didn't know what we were missing until we bought the Englander for our newly built home. The Englander utilizes half the wood with the same results,it burns steadily no constant coddling of coals,our is 1200' to 1800' and it is keeping our downstairs cozy warm upstairs pretty comfortable too for a total of 1900 sq'. It holds the heat well but is not a blasting furnace running us from the room. Did I mention the Englander was 1/3 the price of the Hearthstone. We are immeasurably content and glad we made this purchase, the stove is American made too. A++

There is really nothing bad I can say about this wood stove. I am so happy we bought it. We were trying to save on our heat bill and this baby has done the job. First of all I am so pleased with the way it looks. It fits in with my decor perfectly. Secondly it heats up to 1200 square feet. That there is a good chunk of our home. It is also very durable. It has a cast iron door and a steel body. We are definitely going to have this a while. It also includes a blower which is another big plus. This was also very easy to install. My husband was able to do it by himself. Another important thing is that it is EPA certified. I feel so comfortable and safe having this in my home. It is just beautiful to look at. It has a beautiful door so you can see the fire. If you are planning on purchasing a wood stove I would look no further. We have had it for a year and haven't had any problems at all. We are 100 percent satisfied!
