We are in the process of getting a new fire and it's come down to a Jayline SS200L just wondered if any one had experience of Jayline before we proceed.

Thanks Bryan

Have a look also at the metro. We don't regret our choice of getting one and with a wetback we haven't had the electricity on for the hot water since April. Never seem to run low on hot water! Had the chimney sweep in about April as it was the beginning of our third winter of burning. He said he liked the metro best of all the woodfires he cleaned chimneys on as low emission once underway and little soot and also he said the firebox linings didn't give up easily.
If I'd had the money, and of course the room to put in a waggoner, I'd have gone for a woodrange.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

I second Metro. We put one in our last place on a recommendation. This place also has one with a wetback. Brilliant!!

Thanks for the replies we did look at the Metro but we only need 14Kw and it limits the choice, my wife likes the look of the Jayline and it comes with a 10year guarantee on the fire box, my worry was that someone might have had a horror story.

Ours is a metro wee ped. It heats the whole house and with the wetback it loses some of those kw to the hot water input so you don't need to be worried about it being too hot. With the clever use of a heat exchanger you can push the heat around as many rooms as you like. The Rad model has a cooktop on it and we could cook on ours too by taking of the grill, although we do have the kettle on top and could also keep soup hot on it albeit not actually cook there. The gas cooktop is quicker for that.

We had a look a the Metro models but my wife proffers the cook top on the Jayline, unfortunately the hot-water tank is to far from the fire the trouble with an old badly designed house, but the idea of distributing the heat sounds worth exploring.

Hi Bryan, yes I installed one in my last house and can highly recommend them. I'm not sure about the model you have quoted, mine was an in-built one installed into an existing old open fireplace.

It kept the large lounge very warm and was very fuel efficient. I would expect that all Jayline models are likely to be as good.

Hi; the in-house fire expert has said that he's never heard of that one! But Jayline in general are usually quite good.

Thanks for the feed back, we payed the deposit so no going back now. Lisaeve I had heard good reports but don't know anyone with one so good to hear Barnrat has found one OK.
