What size of stove?
Q: What size stove do I need to heat my room?
A: To achieve a relaxing room
temperature of around 21ºC when the external air temperature is at
freezing (0ºC) you will need approximately 1kW of heat output for
every 14 cubic meters of space.
Measure the length, width and height of your room and multiply
the three figures together.
For example, a room measuring 7m long by 4m wide and with a
height of 2.5m is 70 cu. m. of space. Divide by the sum by 14 and
this means you will require a 5kW stove.
However this is just a rough guide, factors such as the number
of outside walls, the size of windows and whether they are double
glazed, the age of the home etc, can all influence the heat
We would always recommend you consult your local Stovax retailer
for a site survey before making your decision.
