Re: Hot Air

I gave good advice, wandering comes with age.
Ticking over, just about.

Re: Hot Air

Brit had his answer in the second post. Which just happened to be mine.

1 Kw per 10 sq metres.....unless you are a wimp.

Or maybe Brit From Bretagne/Limousin likes walking around his house in his underpants in the Winter. Then in which case maybe a better internet connection might be more useful than a new Poêle.

What make of stove are they suggesting, is it NF? Do not accept anything else. 

 

10 out of 10 for integration, 0 out of 10 for common sense.

 

B&B will get rather cold waiting for the French to create a Norme for imported or even allegedly fabrication Francaise wood burning stoves.

Re: Hot Air

Brit from Bretagne walking live around his house in his underpants in 3D ?

Not my thing.

Chancer might be up for it ??? Wooly maybe ?.

Leven is googling as we speak. That is living in the Creuse for you.

Be warned everyone, don't move rural France. You will become so bored that will you end up live on the internet walking around your house in your underpants or watching other Brits do it.

They want their houses in France blasting at 28 degrees like they do in the UK.

Just by a fleece. Its cheaper.

I’d be happy at 18 degrees.

Re: Hot Air

I’ve spent the afternoon in the garden digging and lovely it was too. One of the best bits about it was my house feels really warm now I’m inside again! I talked to my neighbour about the recommendation and when I said which salesman it was who had recommended the smaller poêle her reply was short and to the point.
‘He’s useless, he knows nothing.’
Mind you she’s one of those people who is never going to say it’s too warm, she hates the cold.
It’s a fleece not underpants here ALBF.

Re: Hot Air

Forgot to say that both our soap stone fires have pipes directly into the fire from outside for air intake.

AND 18degreesC! Yes it is that where I am now and I have an extra jumper on, but later I will light the fire and start shedding the extra clothes and then open doors to warm the rest of the house. There is nothing wrong with a wood burner giving out LOTS of heat, I am used to it, always had it during the evening, in France, in England. It is LOVELY!
