4th March 2013 - 10,000th Unique Visitor to FHT Stoves Website
FHT Stoves today welcomed its 10,000th unique visitor to this website. Analysis of search strings used to find the FHT Stoves website show that many potential customers want to link their wood burning stoves to central heating systems but are frustrated by the complexity, cost and looks of conventional 'back boiler' solutions. The final straw for many is when they find that most back boiler stoves cannot be operated in 'smoke controlled' areas and that options to connect to pressurised heating systems (particularly 'combi' boilers) are very limited, whereas the FHT Stove can maintain 'clean burn' conditions for smoke controlled regions and can be connected to any heating circuit.
