Martina Effe and her Ashling Stove
Martina Effe from Ratoath, Co Meath felt she didn't have to compromise on style putting the Ashling stove into her sun room.
So why did they choose a Stanley stove? "We carried out a lot of research on stoves and felt Firstclass Fireplaces were the best in terms of knowledge and we loved the cream Ashling when we saw it. Four of my family members have put in Stanley stoves. We had a gas stove previously but it wasn't enough to heat the sun room and adjoining kitchen. With the Ashling we loved the heat output to the room and we didn't have to compromise on style. We also wanted to be able to burn all types of fuel in it."
So has Martina noticed any changes to her bills? "We have the oil heating on for 4 to 6 hours a day heating upstairs and the stove heats the downstairs rooms where we spend most of our time. We reckon we have used less than one oil fill since getting in the stove. We estimate we should have payback in around three years."
Martina also commented that when she picks up her daughters from school, they ask 'Mam is the stove lighting?'
Martina had already planned to sit in front of the stove with her girls and watch the Late Late Toy Show with her girls.
