February 20, 2015
We recently received an email at Vesta HQ from a very happy customer. We’re always grateful to receive this kind of independent review because it’s great to know our wood burning stoves can have such a dramatic effect on a customer’s home.
Read this independent review of a Vesta Stove
Before his initial order the customer telephoned and explained that his neighbour had a Vesta V4 woodburning stove installed in his home. During a visit over the Christmas cold snap, he noticed that his neighbour’s home was lovely and warm, whereas his own house was quite cold. Although he wasn’t a stranger to the world of wood burners, as he’d already had two stoves previously, but they were just not performing as they should. After ordering and installing a Vesta V4 the following is the email that we received:
Following my recent order of my Vesta V4 I feel I should put a quick email together to let you know that I am thoroughly pleased with it! It all started with my neighbour ordering one about 2 years ago, he often boasts about his lounge being toasty and sitting there in his shorts whilst the thermometer is commanding sub zero temperatures!
I have tried various stoves to heat the lounge, kitchen and the hallway (I am open plan) whilst my lounge is 44 cubic meters the whole area it has to heat is considerably more! And it does! I find initial burn when lighting of an evening requires a nice hot burn around 450 degrees on the thermometer for about half an hour then the heat is in the chimney and refuelling is easy, the air wash is excellent and the view of the fire is amazing this also contributes to heat transference into the room quite considerably.
The stove was well packaged upon arrival and secured to a pallet and arrived pre 09:00 as promised on the courier, a tip to the driver ensured a lift over the threshold and into the lounge upon delivery. I would recommend this stove as it claims a 4.5kw output ensures no need for an airbrick (constant source of external airflow) under the current laws, however it feels like it’s outputting a whole lot more! I can see how you achieve a high efficiency with this stove it is remarkable and made in this country to boot.
Vesta V4 will not disappoint
So if anyone contemplating purchasing a Vesta I can only comment on my experience which is with the v4 which has been remarkable so if this is anything to go by then I expect the rest of the range will not disappoint
