Stove expert replied: The baffle plate will make a huge difference as it keeps the heat in the stove and allows for better efficiency and a cleaner burn before the gases exit the firebox. The installer should have checked this before handing the installation over.

Stove expert replied: If the stove is working hard and is not able to be shut down to a slumber mode, using lots of fuel for little heat then a damper should help to control the flue draw which may be excessive. In these cases the heated air is sucked out of the stove up the flue before it has time to radiate into the room, this may happen on windy occasions or be something that is always present. Further investigation is recommended.

Stove expert replied: The canopy may not be allowing the generated heat to radiate freely into the surrounding space but may be trapping it. Stove top fans do work well when a stove is up to working temperatures and may help. Is the stove fully controllable? If it is then possible look at the fuel that you are using, if it does not shut down to a slumber mode then the flue draw may be a problem and should be investigated further. Is the stove the correct size for the 2 areas you are trying to heat?
For the last few years I had a clearview vision 500, which was excellent. The clearview was located in a dining room , it was installed with a double skinned flue which was boxed in . However... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Was the flue draw tested when installed as clear guidance is given to this in the manual supplied. I suspect that the draw was above the recommended level and a damper enables the reduction of the draw to what is suggested. The turbo bar will be required to insure the stove can burn effectively and efficiently and perhaps you are trying to put too many logs into the firebox at any one time. Is the fuel dry and seasoned? The glass will only stay clean if the air settings are correct and the fuel does not have a moisture content of less than 20%. Putting too many logs into the fire may also be aggravating this.

Stove expert replied: buying a second stove of the same make speaks for itself, great review.
We have had this Stove for about 3 months, all I can say is that I am very disappointed with it. After 8-10 hours of burning at full rate I can comfortably open the door by hand, without discomfort... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: this possibly sounds like an undersized stove, perhaps also on a chimney which draws very strongly? Can you hear the air being sucked through the vents very clearly when you are near the stove?
We've had one of these for 18 months, including 2 winters. The first winter we had no damper, which was a mistake - even though our house is not exposed, we needed to get one the following summer... [ read more ]
