The ‘Bio Energy’ stove showroom in Polis, Cyprus

Posted By paddy

As I mentioned last week, whilst we were staying in Latchi, Cyprus we popped over to nearby Polis where we went it into the ‘Bio Energy’ stove showroom. Here we met two of the guys who work there, Alex and Simon who were most friendly and welcoming, with Alex happy to spend time talking us through how they do things in Cyprus. They had a wide range of stoves, going from expensive continental stoves to cheaper Chinese options. Apparently, the cheaper Chinese options are vey popular with the Greek populace. Alex explained that they do drop liners, but more commonly they install using factory made chimneys that they buy from Italy. They cover a large area, from Polis all the way over to Paphos and beyond. They also do all their own chimney sweeping for their installs and are the only chimney sweeps on their patch. They did say however that a lot of the Greeks prefer to sweep their own chimneys!!! The stove in the photograph is Swiss made and is unusually loaded from the top. It looks like a soapstone stove, but is actually some sort of granite type rock and in consequence it is extremely heavy. It has become the show room mascot, particularly as it looks a bit like Kevin the Minion!
