  • Chesney or Clearview

    I hope this review is useful to you, please don’t be put off buying a Chesney because of my limited experience they are probably better than some others out there – at least they
    look better! I can live with the issues and so we are happy with ours, whether I would have been happier with a Clearview perhaps, I will never know.

    Stove expert replied: Some disappointing problems but you seem to have learned to live with them. An alternative to a stove thermometer is a flue thermometer which may be easier to see and gives accurate indication of the best working temperatures. Regarding the glass vibrating, was the flue draw checked at the time of installation, if you have a strong draw this may be causing the problem and can lead to less control of the unit and higher fuel consumption. If this is found to be the case a flue damper or stabilizer can be fitted to rectify this, ask your installer for further assistance.

  • WOW!!! what a stove

    Sam 10 years ago

    This is my fifth stove in three houses. And i'll be taking this one with me if I ever move again. Had an initial problem with the air control lever but rang Chesneys who responded well and got
    it sorted, works like a dream now. With cold snap last weekend, easily kept it going for three days and nights no problem.

    I have had stoves before but nothing quite like this. Such friendly advice from Chesneys sales team and good installation service. I had to wait a few weeks to be installed but well worth the
    wait. This stove gives such great heat into my room, easy to use and looks stylish too. Well worth the money.Thank you Chesneys!!!

    Stove expert replied: Lovely feedback for this stove.
