Review of Clearview vision 500 stove

even better an I thought

A Kerr 8 years ago

My first stove, I hoped it would change the feel of the house. It has delivered all I expected. The stove is clean burn multifuel but I have mostly used wood. Wood gives fast lighting , responsive adjustment. I don't try to keep it in overnight, I think it would do with solid fuel. \n\nIt lights with a single match, no need for fancy firelighters or special kindling, and will be giving out heat in ten minutes. \n\nOnly downside is don't underestimate the overall cost of installation, flue lining etc, it all added up. But it's one of the best investments I've made and the gas bills have dropped spectacularly. \n\n

Stove expert replied: Installation costs can be high compared to the stove cost but it will make all the difference to its performance so in the long term worth the initial outlay.
