Handsome stove

This is our third woodburning stove and the Vidar Triple is certainly the most handsome of the three. It does however demand a little more attention than the other two. When is use, the large size and large windows give an appearance somewhat more akin to a conventional fire than a wood burner.

One of the features is the large glass area, although this does need to be kept clean to maintain the attractive appearance of the stove. Small areas of carbon staining have appeared in the bottom corners of the front glass which I have not been able to remove. The stove does look rather empty when not burning, but this can be solved by pre-laying logs ready for the next fire.

While the stove is easy to start up, it does require a little more attention than my other (smaller) stoves to maintain at a high enough operating temperature. If the temperature falls below the optimum range, the airflow becomes insufficient. You will often find a carbon coating of the glass in the morning as a result of inefficient combustion of the embers.

One of the reasons for buying a large stove was the ability to burn large logs (sometimes knotted wood is difficult to split). However, unless the temperature and hence airflow are maintained by the regular addition of smaller logs, there is a tendency for large logs to burn inefficiently.

External air YES

Yes, this stove can be fitted with an external air kit. Usually this option is not relevant unless an air vent is required and the property owners are aiming for an airtight space.

Air vent advice here

Body and door

Steel body with cast-iron door.

What to buy steel or cast-iron? Do not overthink. Steel heats fast. Cast-iron takes a little longer but retains heat longer as fire dies.

Hearth

This stove can, if sited outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth.

If in a fireplace recess, a full 125mm thickness constructional hearth is required. This will usually be in place as part of the recess design.

 

Hearth regulation advice here

Air gaps

Distance to combustibles SIDE: ?
Distance to combustibles REAR: ?

To non-combustibles there are no hard rules but, around the stove, a 50mm minimum air gap is recommended to brick/stone. This to be increased to 100mm for rendered or boarded surfaces. Prior to purchasing any stove download the installation manual to check that manufacturers do not have any additional requirements.

WHY YOU NEED OUR Exceptional guarantee (6-months even if stove used)

What if I get a lemon? What if I'm unhappy when I unwrap it? What if it does not agree with my chimney?
 
Chimney and stove not agreeing with each other? Although rare it really does happen and it is usually cured by swapping the stove for another. Why? Who knows? We have had a few stoves that "whistled". When we swapped the stove the problem stopped but when we put the stoves on a different chimney they do not whistle. We have had a few stoves that let smoke into the room when refuelling - swap the stove and the problem is cured. Test the stove on a different chimney and all is well.
 
Most retailers will not replace or refund if it is a problem with the chimney. You will have to sell your stove yourself (at a great loss as stove second-hand value is very poor) and purchase another.
 
If your stove's retail price is under £1500: Should you not be happy with your stove for any reason, within the first three months from purchase, we will arrange to have the stove collected from your premises (we pay first £48 delivery collection cost, covers most UK postcodes, you pay additional in rare situation cost rises above £48 for any reason). Stove installed and has been used? No worry. We will pay you up to £100 to have it removed by a Hetas registered installer.
 
As soon as the stove is back with us we will provide a FULL REFUND of the cost of the stove. We will even post you a pallet and straps as required (you will need to prepare it ready for our driver). This exceptional guarantee lasts for a full three months from date of delivery EVEN IF THE STOVE IS USED as long as normal wear and tear.
 
Between three and six months, we offer exactly the same but without the £100 stove-removal offer.
 
On this, you have my word.
