We live in a rural village and currently use oil to heat our house and water. We moved here from a suburban house on the gas grid and have been amazed at how much more costly the oil-based heating system is. We are therefore exploring cheaper and greener energy sources.
Wood is a good option for us, as it is a renewable resource and is available at a fair price from beautiful woodlands nearby. No messy drilling or mining required! So we decided to invest in a wood burning stove.
We researched the myriad of models available for months and Clearview stoves stood out as having a wildly enthusiastic owner-base. After a couple of visits to the gorgeous Clearview showroom in Stow-on-the-Wold and a home visit from their knowledgeable and enthusiastic installer Richard, we settled on a Clearview Pioneer 400, which was installed over 3 days this summer. This is our first wood burning stove, so we’ll keep you posted on our experiences as we get used to life with the “new baby”.
