In January 2010 we decided to purchase a wood burning stove for our villa in Uzumlu. After making a number of enquiries and receiving several recommendations from friends in Uzumlu. We contacted P.U.S. in Fethiye. who supply Aarow make fires. These fires are produced and made in England, and exported to Turkey
Their smart new offices are situated in the centre of Fethiye. We were well received, and arrangements were made for the civil engineer Sinan and his colleague to visit us and provide information. They came the following day Friday 15th January 2010. and calculated the output required for the size of room and showed us a number of fire designs that suited. We also required a brick fireplace surround and they advised they had a builder that had been trained to fit their fires and build us the brick fireplace.
After visiting their offices and shown a number of fires we decided on a Stratford Si 140c wood burning fire and a brick surround which would be handmade in small grey brick. The cost of the fire was the same as ones advertised in England, and the fireplace build was costed at a very reasonable price.
The work started after the weekend on the Monday, 18th January, the room was totally covered in plastic sheeting and work began. As we were having a completely new fireplace there was bound to be an amount of dust and debris from the handmade bricks they made but the workmen did all they could to minimise the dust.
After 4 days work the project was completed. The workmen removed all the debris cleared the room completely and put everything back in place.
Sinan showed us how to work the fire and provided us with burning material.
The result was a fantastic fire and surround, the warmth provided was excellent. The fire was lit in the afternoon and would last all evening, in fact in the morning there were still glowing embers in the grate.
The fire itself is very smart and efficient, and provides us with all the heat required. The fireplace brickwork was first-class.
I would like to thank Sinan and his colleagues for the excellent service they provided, in fact a few days after the installation, Sinan called unexpectedly to see if everything was ok and asked if there were any problems. I would have no hesitation in recommending P.U.S to anyone who is thinking of having a wood burning stove, whether it is a single fire or central heating system.
