Browsing through the latest Industry magazine for us folks who make our living in a stove-like manner I came across a rather amazing statement:
“Firemizer can save you up to 38% on your fuel bills”
“Shut the back door!” I thought (I heard that phrase on the radio, made me chuckle).
No messin’ about with these guys. No measly 5% nonsense here. No “not to be sniffed at” 10%, 15%. Thirty eight percent! Carry this on and we’ll be at a full half.
Okay So that’s the blurb. What’s the real story? I’m naturally sceptical.
Well here are the test results (all done proper scientific):
University of Cambridge managed a fuel usage reduction of 33.6% (wood) 31.9% (coal)
University of Nottingham managed a fuel usage reduction of 27.8% (coal)
Gastec managed a fuel usage reduction of 19.4% (wood)
Omni Test Laboratories managed a fuel usage reduction of 37.7% (wood) shut the back door!
So the worst of the tests was still 19.4%. Now that’s a serious saving and that’s the WORST of the results by these independent testers.
Not only this but Creosote emmisions are down and Particulate emissions are down. Result.
So I ordered one. I tested it in The Wood Stove Hut. See how I got on here
