of the water temperature and the RHI grant made it a no brainier.....The Smart 80 has delivered on all counts! The house is never too hot, the heating is as we like it, not whatever the Rayburn / Winds delivered and I no longer have to worry about getting the thermal store far too hot when the wind speed increased. Add to that the cleanliness of the Klover in comparison to a solid fuel system. Great......In terms of running costs; over the last 12 months we have used approx 50% of the money that the old system required. We will also receive the cost of the Klover and it's install back from the RHI grant!A very happy customer...

the cooker. Anyone else found this? Now been told that you can buy a £100 igniter that is more powerful and lasts 4 times as long. We will see....
Stove expert replied: The standard Klover ignition element is designed to ignite 1500 times. This should be giving you 2-3 years of ignitions. If the ignition element is failing before 2-3 years then this needs to be looked into to see how many times a day the Klover is igniting as it may be too often, it is likely that this can be improved for you and I would recommend going back to your supplier to follow this up with the UK distributor.
pellets used. The only downside for us is that the pellets have to be delivered half a mile away due to lack of access for the big delivery truck.
Stove expert replied: Restricted access can cause problems with many different fuel deliveries but thankfully pellets can come in clean 10kg bags which makes handling / moving much easier. Good feedback on the replacement cooker and boiler. Please note that there are hob covers available which can allow for better control on heating to room, directing heat to the heating system more effectively and will then also allow for a faster cooking facility on the hob as required.
save too as we are spending less on fuel than before. Produces a small amount of ash. Warm house, warm kitchen and loads of hot water. Looks great. If fitting on a confined space, you can get have it fitted on rails. Only slight negative is that the hot plate is a bit of a waste of time but maybe I need to read the manual to see if you can control the heat or whether it is always a residual heat.
Stove expert replied: Thanks for your honest review. When the boiler is running the flue gases are passed underneath the hotplate producing heat. This heat will always be emitted into the room. You can adjust the temperature of the hot plate by increasing or decreasing the power levels 1-5 (pressing buttons 5 and 6). This model is available with a hob cover if you thought that the heat to the room is too much.
ashes at least once a day and the house was full of dust. The Klover on the other hand needs ash emptying once a week and produces plenty of heat to power 12 rads as well as hot water. It is also programmable so instead of having the Stanley on all the time to keep the house warm the Kover comes in by itself in the morning before we get up. It lights itself automatically and is much cleaner to run than a Rayburn or Stanley. The hotplate on the top will keep food simmering and boil a kettle but of course it only works when the stove is on. You couldn't use the Klover 80 as your main cooker and this model doesn't have an oven. However it is the most brilliant piece of kit and looks good in our traditional farmhouse kitchen. The pellet hopper holds enough for a winter's day fuel.Running costs are quite a bit lower than previous Stanley and Rayburn. I reckon to get through 3.50 tons of pellets in a year approx £750. Even cutting my own wood with the Stanley it was costing the wrong side of £1000 with the added coal. The Klover has transformed our lives!
Stove expert replied: Great review. Labour saving as well as financial gain.
heating we wanted PLUS a warm kitchen due to its heat to air output. Must admit it uses slightly more fuel than we expected but this is not a problem. Access to both sides is required for maintenance so 'building it in' to a modern kitchen needs thought. Overall very impressed with this good looking efficient stove.
