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.

Julian's Thoughts

We had one of these in The Wood Stove Hut back in the day and I miss it terribly. We used to burn part pallets and the longest of logs.

Makes a statement that's for sure.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood only.
Nominal 8kW. Max. 9kW

This stove will run happily at 9kW depending on fuel load. Note that running the stove at a higher fuel level than that specified in the manufacturer's manual may cause degradation of stove innards (firebricks, baffle etc.) although these are replaceable (and repairable with beige fire cement).

What size stove do I need?


Eco Credentials

This stove meets and exceeds the new 2022 Ecodesign regulations

This stove is approved by DEFRA to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area


Efficiency

88% (as a rough guide 88% of heat goes to the room with 12% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and90%+ efficiency may not work so well on shorter or difficult chimneys.


External Air

Yes, this stove can be fitted with an external air kit (draws air from outside via pipe direct to stove). Usually this option is not relevant unless a room air-vent is required and the property is airtight (by design or choice).

See "Customers Also Bought".

Body & Door

Steel stove 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

Hearth thickness: minimum 125mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

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