Our range of advanced, high efficiency wood burning and multi-fuel stoves featuring Cleanburn technology let you do just that, introducing air to key areas of the appliance’s firebox through multiple air inlets. Not only does this increase heat output and reduce the amount of times you need to refuel; it ensures cleaner, more efficient burning.

Our Cleanburn technology uses a secondary air supply which introduces combustion air into the upper area of the stove, increasing wood burning efficiency and creating a larger, brighter flame that fills the stove’s window.

Most of the heat-output from wood fuel actually comes from igniting the gases produced by the burning wood. By supplying air above the wood fire, gases are burnt off to produce more heat output with less smoke particles going up the chimney. This allows complete combustion of the fuel, benefitting the environment through cleaner burning.

Complete combustion of wood ensures approximately the same amount of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere as that absorbed by the tree during growth – making wood burning a carbon neutral energy. With lower smoke emissions, these cleaner burning, high efficiency stoves are not only a greener option, they may also be approved for use in urban Smoke Control Areas.

Offered in both traditional and contemporary designs, our range of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves with Cleanburn technology are available in a variety of sizes and heat outputs to suit almost any home.

Stockton 3 burning wood

Stockton 3 burning wood

For those of you who desire a cast iron stove that has traditional appeal, the Huntingdon 25 could be the ideal option. With a heat output of 5kW this stove is certainly powerful for its size, and whether you opt for the clear glass version or the tracery door with Gothic styling, Airwash technology ensures a wonderful view of the beautiful flames.

The Stockton 3 and View 3 share the same 3.75 kW heat output, as well as the ability to fit neatly into a standard 22” high British fireplace opening, yet they offer two very different looks. The Stockton’s styling is more traditional, whereas the View provides a more contemporary slant with its geometric lines. Although both stoves are multi-fuel, they are also capable of burning wood with an impressive efficiency of up to 86%.

Sleek and contemporary with its black glass finish, the Riva Vision Small offers a generous heat output of 5kW. This stove comes in a dedicated wood burning version, designed specifically to burn wood with maximum efficiency and, like the Stockton 3 and View 3, the Riva Vision Small benefits from cutting-edge Cleanburn and Airwash technology, keeping the window clear and resulting in efficiencies of up to 76%.

Smaller wood burning stoves with a contemporary style look incredibly appealing when mounted on an optional stove bench, adding a new dimension to your appliance. Choose from a bench designed specifically for smaller stoves, or opt for a larger bench and gain the extra convenience of a storage space for your logs.

Smaller stoves are wonderful for more modest spaces, and your Stovax retailer can help you find your perfect model. For further information about our range of convenient, small wood burning stoves, visit your local showroom today.

Top 5 reasons why you should buy a wood burning stovehttp://www.stovax.com/reasons-why-you-should-buy-a-wood-burning-stove/ http://www.stovax.com/reasons-why-you-should-buy-a-wood-burning-stove/#comments Fri, 15 Mar 2013 13:43:43 +0000 http://www.stovax.com/blog/?p=2380 If you haven't invested in a wood burning stove, here are Stovax's top 5 reasons!

The temperatures have dropped dramatically in the last week. If you haven’t yet invested in a wood burning stove, here are our top 5 reasons why you should buy one…

Made from premium quality materials

View 8HB boiler, wood burning stove

Most premium quality wood burning stoves are made from the finest cast iron and heavy gauge steel. Traditionally, wood burning stoves were made from cast iron but as technology progressed, the use of heavy gauge steel was introduced and quickly became popular. Although, cast iron will take a little while to get up to temperature, it is excellent at retaining heat and then diffusing it over a period of time.

Most homeowners prefer the appearance of a cast iron wood burning stove due to its decorative detailing for example; the Huntingdon wood burning stoves incorporate stunning gothic tracery doors creating an elegant piece of furniture in its own right. On the other hand, wood burning steel stoves provide a smoother and cleaner look and emit heat quickly into the room. Stovax’s View stoves sum up the wood burning steel stove look: clean, smooth and elegant.

The more traditional Stockton wood burning stoves and Riva Plus stoves combine the advantage of both cast iron and steel, offering superb performance and value for money.

Cleanburn technology

Cleanburn logo for wood burning stoves

Most Stovax wood burning stoves feature the latest Cleanburn technology.This enables the burning of logs or solid fuels with outstanding efficiency. Incorporating Cleanburn technology results in more heat delivery into the room and less heat escaping up the chimney. Cleanburn technology works by introducing pre-heated, secondary air into the firebox to burn the excess hydrocarbons in the smoke.

CE Marked and HETAS accredited

HETAS accredited logo for wood burning stoves

Most Stovax wood burning stoves are CE marked, look for the CE logo in our brochures or on specific product pages. The CE mark is an indicator that the manufacturing company is conforming to exacting and high standards and is developing products that comply with EU safety, health and environmental requirements. Stovax is proud to declare that many of its wood burning stoves conform with all the legal requirements needed to achieve this marking.

HETAS is the the UK’s official body recognised by the government to approve solid fuel domestic heating appliances; their logo indicates an accreditation and indicates that an appliance complies fully with rigorous energy efficiency and safety requirements. Look out for the HETAS accreditation logo when choosing a wood burning stove or solid fuel stove or fire as well as an installation engineer and fuel supplier.

Eco friendly lifestyle

Dry wood for your wood burning stove

Using a wood burning stove is becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that burning wood is a great way to provide your home with virtually carbon neutral heat. If you do not have access to land, purchasing wood from a reputable local supplier ensures that trees are harvested in a sustainable manner and helps to improve the local environment. Remember that dry wood results in greater heat output when burnt. We recommend that wood logs have a moisture content that is below 20%.

The wide variety of choice

From the modern, steel stoves to the more traditional looking designs, Stovax’s collection of wood burning stoves is extensive. They are highly efficient and available in sizes and styles to suit most rooms and living spaces.

If you live in a Smoke Control Area, there are also suitable models available that have been specifically designed for use in these areas.

For further information and see a range of wood burning stoves, visit your local Stovax retailer.

Technical advances in stove design such as Cleanburn technology ensure that most stoves and fires have outstanding efficiencies. A Cleanburn wood burning stove results in more heat delivery into the room and less going up the chimney.

Cleanburn technology introduces a supply of pre-heated air through a heat exchanger chamber within the firebox. It is then drawn into the smokestream, where it combust unburnt hydrocarbons to provide a cleaner burn and greater thermal efficiency.

Here’s 5 top reasons why you should invest in a Cleanburn wood burning stove:

Fewer emissions

Cleanburn wood burning stoves are very efficient therefore they use fewer logs and give you more heat. Some models can be up to 87% efficient like the View 7 Inset Convector wood burning stove.

Suitable for use in Smoke Control Areas

Local authorities only allow heating appliances that demonstrate clean burning combustions within allocated urban areas. To find out if you are within a Smoke Control Area, contact your local authority direct.

More warmth

An efficient wood burning stove gives you plenty of warmth with less heat going up the chimney and more radiating from the stove into your room. Remember to use seasoned wood that is dry (a maximum 20% moisture content; ideally though you should buy logs that are dryer than this).

Create a stylish focal point
