    Brilliant little stove. Purchased Jan '15 the heat output is brilliant and the glass stays nice and clear. I'm in a smoke controlled area and this doesn't cause a problem. Nice dry logs seasoned... []

  • Earlswood

    Simon 5 years ago

    I installed this at the start of November as a secondary heat source. It has been lit every evening, often at the request of my other half who did not "know she wanted a stove". If damp wood... []

    Stove expert replied: Damp wood should not be used as this can lead to tar residues building up in the flue and can lead to chimney fires if used for prolonged periods. Ensure that short periods of fast burn are undertaken to minimize this (15 - 20 mins at least daily). Wood should have a moisture content of less than 20%, a good investment would be a moisture metre.

    Had stove for 2 months. A great little burner, but you really must have wood that's dry

  • Insufficient heat output

    Karri Sharp one year ago

    We had this stove and chimney liner installed 4 weeks ago and burn smokeless coal. The heat output is poor and all the heat just seems to be going up the chimney. When we open the door the fire... []

    Great stove but only used for the first time yesterday and the glass has a strange mark inside it which doesn't fog up or get affected by blackening of the glass. First fire was kindling only... []

    Installed the above on recommendations of a plumber friend. It is perfect as a secondary heat source and makes our lounge toasty and warm. It is best with dry wood and will blacken the glass... []

  • Generally Very Pleased

    Dave Goldthorpe 2 years ago

    Our first experience with a stove was Clearview in a rented property which had a brilliant airwash system and the glass stayed clean at all times. It was too big for our new house and we liked... []

    Stove expert replied: The air wash control should be left open as this keeps the glass clean. If you are burning damp wood then the glass will blacken up. It can take a while to get used to a new stove and where the controls work best.

  • Nice looking stove

    S Field 3 years ago

    Have just installed the ACR earlswood stove and it looks lovely. However the glass gets very dirty, and the fire is either burning fiercely if air vents open, or with primary closed and top... []

    Stove expert replied: This will de-ash the stove so that the ash falls into the ashpan. Leave the top lever open fully to keep the glass clean and use the bottom lever to alter the rate of burn.

  • Great Little Stove for a new user

    Crystal Hornsey 3 years ago

    I bought this stove due to it being DEFRA approved and its simple design and had it installed by an approved fitter last summer. It seems to burn well and I have a good draw from the chimney... []

    Stove expert replied: The Smoke Exempt model stoves will always allow air into the stove to dilute the flue gases hence little change in the rate of burn, as you have found shutting it will darken the glass. Try leaving a small air was bleed to help keep the glass clean.
