Review of Woodwarm Fireview 4kW inset stove

WOODWARM FIREVIEW MULTIFUEL INSET STOVE- BEST VALUE HIGH QUALITY STOVE.

Mervyn Herron 10 years ago

THIS STOVE WAS PURCHASED TO FULFIL TWO ROLES. FIRST WAS TO USE THE STOVE TO STOP THE OPEN FLUE FROM MAKING THE 21FOOT X 13FOOT ROOM, THE COLDEST ROOM IN THE HOUSE, (NOW ITS THE WARMEST). SO THEREFORE A GOOD FITTING DOOR WAS VERY IMPORTANT FACTOR TO START WITH.( CHINESE STOVES HAVE POOR SEALING DOORS AS STANDARD.)

SECONDLY THE EFFICIENCY (92%)/CONTROL ABILITY (AMAZING) THIS STOVE IS THE BUSINESS, IT FULFILLED THE BRIEF AND THEN SOME. ALSO VERY ECONOMICAL TO RUN , DON'T OVERSIZE THE STOVE OR IT WILL TAKE A WHEELBARROW OF FUEL TO RUN IT AS OPPOSED TO ABOUT 2 LOGS EVERY 3/4HOURS OR SO.

I HAVE TO SAY I REVIEWED LOADS OF VARIOUS STOVES AND WENT TO VARIOUS PLACES TO SEE THEM WORKING INCLUDING PEOPLES HOMES PRIOR TO PURCHASE.THE WOODWARM STOOD OUT FROM THE CROWD FOR BOTH MY WIFE AND MYSELF.

I PURCHASED FROM AND HAD HOT STOVES FROM TANDRAGEE CO. ARMAGH N. IRELAND INSTALL THE STOVE. NO CORNERS WERE CUT AND ONLY STAINLESS STEEL FITTINGS WERE USED FLEXI-LINER AND VERMICULITE ALSO. OTHERS USE CHEAPER FITTING MADE OF GALVANIZED STEEL, WHICH THEN GETS EATEN BY THE CREOSOTE PRODUCED FROM BURNING WOOD. AND DON'T INSTALL THE TWIN-WALL LINER/VERMICULITE.

DON,T CUT CORNERS WITH THE INSTALLATION OR YOU WILL DEFINITELY REGRET IT. AS SOME OF THE STOVES I VIEWED HAD TO BE PULLED OUT AND DONE PROPERLY.

WOODWARM MAY NOT BE AS WELL KNOWN AS SOME STOVE BRANDS , BUT IT DEFINITELY SURPASSES MANY OF ITS MUCH BETTER KNOWN PEERS.

THANK YOU HOTSTOVES AND THANK YOU WOODWARM.
