Stove and chimney fitted December 2013 so we had a lovely cosy Christmas with our multi fuel stove. January 2014 some bubbles appeared on the inside glass front but as we kept the stove on continuously... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Glass discolouration normally takes the form of a smoky appearance or a crackle appearance that gradually creeps over the glass and is due to over-firing or not firing hard enough thus allowing the flue gases to stay in the firebox to attack the glass from a chemical reaction. I have not heard of a bubble effect before so I am unable to comment on this but perhaps take photos and send to the manufacturer for their comment.
Definitely worth investing in a flue-pipe thermometer and placing it above the door on the front of the stove. The stove works best at surface temps of around 200C, anything below that and it... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: A flue thermometer is an important addition to any stove installation as it will help to get the best results.
They all claim to have an airwash system but this one NEVER blacks up, the glass remains clear even when completely shut down overnight. It is easy to light, very controllable and extremely... [ read more ]
It takes big logs and will burn seasoned tree trunks without splitting if you can get them in. Once it gets hot, there is so much air that anything that fits in will burn even if there is little... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Logs ideally should be no more than 100mm in diam to give the best burning efficiency, I would suggest not filling the firebox to the top as this can lead to failure of the baffle and if you load with large logs can cause problems with shutting the door etc and breaking the glass.
Clearview 500 installed 4 years ago. The best thing I ever did. Output is excellent, its easy to empty and the airwash system works perfectly. I now use a room that before was cold and without... [ read more ]
I have used 6 different burners in the past few years (we move a lot!) and it's by far the best. It is very efficient - we burn almost half the quantity of wood now and our house is much warmer... [ read more ]
Excellent stove, use hard wood seasoned logs or smokeless eggs/ovals for over night burning. Since house heating system gave up 4 weeks ago, we have used it 24/7 and it`s easy to get over twelve... [ read more ]
After last year's freezing winter, we installed a Vision 500 a few months ago in our lounge which is a huge room (approx. 4m by 5m) so we installed a Vision 500 which we've been using since... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: I would suggest purchasing a moisture meter so that you can be sure the wood burnt is less than 20% moisture content. Was insulation put round the liner? Is there enough air in the room for combustion? Have you adequate clearance round the stove for the heat to radiate freely?
We replaced a Villager and have been delighted with it the fitting was excellent although the arrangements for fitting were traumatic due to the incompetence of the Installation Manager.The... [ read more ]
I installed it a month ago with a choke in the flue, as we have a 50ft chimney, and am glad I did. The choke remains in its closed position at all times except when lighting and refuelling... [ read more ]
