Ok, it’s Christmas morning as I write this testimonial, yeah and I also don’t drink, so it’s not a chemical induced love affair.
Almost a year and a half ago, we bought 2 stoves a Riva 40 insert and a Yeoman Country, for the same area, we have a mezzanine kitchen, dining and lounge area which on floor area measures 18m x 5m double height, quite a large area which was serviced by 8 double and 3 single rads fueled by an oil/kerosene boiler and 2 gas fires, the building structure, traditional 300mm double insulation cavity walls and then cladded with 200mm solid granite, we also have lot of glazing.
We put the Riva insert at ground floor level, a level where we traditionally cooked and dined, then sat in upper level at night time.
We installed the Yeoman at upper level.
We took out gas fires, the effect was immediate, we now only use upper level when the family come home or when we have guests.
Instead of 4 to 5 double radiators now going, we only use one, the saving was immediate, both stoves are multi-fuel, we use both seasoned hardwood and smokeless fuel. The saving over the year after saving on oil, and gas, and using multi-fuel is a staggering £1500.
In all honesty, we find the small Riva 40 cassette the better of the 2, not necessarily because of the fuel saving, but easier to clean, and when it’s semi shutdown will keep going much much longer than it’s bigger stablemate also in semi shut down mode.

Finals season and there’s still a chill in the air. I can’t wait to rug up with a spread and a bottle of wine in front of the fire this weekend.
