In the quest for cosy, cost-effective heating solutions for large spaces, many have turned to the charm and efficiency of log burners. Whether it’s a barn conversion, a major renovation, or a self-build project, when it comes to heating large open-plan spaces the challenge is not just in generating heat but also in efficiently distributing it. A large log burner from Stovax is the perfect blend of functionality, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. This post delves into how these log burners can revolutionise heating in spacious environments.

Why choose a large log burner from Stovax

Open-plan living spaces, such as those found in barn conversions or expansive living areas, require heating solutions that are both powerful and adept at distributing heat evenly. Many of Stovax’s large log burners such as those in the Studio Air Wood Burning fire range, feature state-of-the-art convection heat flow systems that draw in cool air from the room, warm it, and then disperse it back into the room, efficiently heating the space.

Selecting the right model for your space

Choosing a large log burner for a barn conversion, renovation, or self-build involves several considerations:

  • Size and Heat Output: Ensure the log burner’s capacity matches the size of your space. Your expert Stovax approved retailer can help you to calculate the size of wood stove needed for your room dimensions.
  • Style Preferences: Select a design that complements your interior. Choose between freestanding or inset models as well as any additional model specific mounting options, such as whether to opt for a bench or additional frame.
  • Installation and Safety: Professional installation and proper ventilation are crucial, especially in custom-designed spaces. A log burner must be installed by a professional who is qualified and registered with a competent person scheme, therefore we’d recommend speaking to your expert Stovax retailer in the first instance for all your installation needs.
