Lovely. The small size combined with small requirement of clearance make it a great out-of-the-way stove.--We're really proud of the launch of the recent Aspen C3 and Dauntless and I'd like to answer any questions and provide supporting data on testing performed to make sure these units are more reliable, easier to operate and last longer than VC designs of the past.
Hi, we have an Aspen C3 that we had professionally installed about two months ago. So far we love it. The installation specs say that in a corner install, the corners can be 3" from a combustible wall. That seems incredibly close! We put it 5" away at the corners but still the wall seems to get hot when we are running the stove hot. Is there a reason it can be that close or is it a mistake? Considering adding a heat shield of some kind but not sure what is best.
A bit concerned as my next door neighbors nearly burnt down their garage last night with a homemade stove made out of a 50 gallon barrel, with metal flashing attached directly to the wall. Just want to do it right
