Which Stove Should I Buy?
This is often the big question that needs answered. You have made the decision that you want to fit a stove or wood burner but which one should you choose? Below are the questions that you need to ask yourself.
- What type of fuel do I wish to use
- What size of stove do I need for the job
- Do I want a boiler stove for central heating or hot water
- Which designs do I like.
What type of fuel?
You will need to decide between a multi-fuel stove or a dedicated wood burning stove. If you are intent on burning only wood you will most likely choose a dedicated wood burner designed for the job and a range of these can be found in our Wood Burning Stoves Category. Be careful to check if you are in a smoke controlled area as if you wish to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area you will have to use a DEFRA Approved Wood Burning Stove to suit legislation. Try the DEFRA web site at the following link http://smokecontrol.defra.gov.uk/ for further information. If you wish to burn other types of fuel like coal, peat (turf) or have the choice of burning wood and other fuels then you should choose a multi-fuel stove form our Multi-Fuel Stoves Category.
What Size of Stove Do I Need For the Job?
Depending the size of the area you wish to heat you can choose from our range of stoves from 4kW up to 16kW. You can use our Heating Calculator to calculate the approximate size of stove required
