Fuel

This shows the different fuel burning models available in this stove. Although we can supply all of these models we can only install wood and solid fuel stoves.

 

kW

Calculating the heat output you need

To produce a comfortable room temperature of around 21/22 Celsius (70 Fahrenheit), when the outside temperature is 0, you will need about 1kW of heat for every 14 cubic metres of averagely insulated space. 1kW is the equivalent of approximately 1 bar of an electric fire.

The following formula and example will give you a reasonable guide to the heat output you are likely to need. To establish the cubic capacity of the room, measure the length, the width and the height, X (room width) x Z (room length) x Y (room height) = m3.

The kilowatt requirement is then calculated as m3 \ 14.

For example a room that is in the region of  4.5 metres wide (X), 6 metres long (Z) and 2.5 metres high (Y) will have a cubic capacity of X x Z x Y = m3 which is 67.5 m3. The kW required would be 67.5\14 = 4.82.

A stove of about 5kW output would adequately heat this room.

The calculation in feet is

Height x Width x Length (in feet)  divided by 500 giving the result in Kilowatts. 

 

These calculations are based on heating a room which has been averagely insulated.

To calculate the kW requirement for a poorly insulated room divide m3 \ 10.

To calculate the kW requirement for a very well insulated room divide m3 \ 24.

Size

Size = Dimensions of the Stove

Suggested room size

Larger stoves need to have permanent non closable ventilation installed as wood and solid fuel burning stoves draw in air from the room.

Building Regulations specify that the following fixed ventilation must be provided when installing wood and solid fuel burning stoves.

Appliance rated under 5kW: No ventilations required.

Appliances rated over 5kW: For each kW of rated output above 5kW, 550 sq.mm (0.85 sq. ins.) per kW is required.

A standard ventilation brick will generally provide 1650 sq.mm (2.56 sq.ins).

When choosing your stove make sure you have taken into consideration the kW output required to heat your room. A large stove which only has a small fire in it not only looks odd but also is not as effective and can actually damage your stove.

Max log size

This is the maximum size of a log you can fit into the stove. The larger the size the less chopping must be done.

Flue location

This is where you can connect a flue pipe to your stove. Bear in mind that bends in flue pipes are to be avoided as much as possible.

Airwash system

The Airwash system forces cool air in front of the glass to keep the flames and exhaust away. This keeps your door looking clean and transparent a lot longer. Over the course of a winter, or if you overfire your appliance, you might need to clean the glass. This is easily done with fireplace glass cleaner.
