Frequently Asked Questions

Can I burn wood in a smoke control zone?

Wood burning stoves that have been approved by defra for burning in a smoke control area can be used. There are a growing supply of these from various manufacturers.


What is the difference between a wood burning stove and a multi fuel stove?

A wood burning stove burns wood only and is not fitted with a grate. A multi fuel stove is fitted with a grate for the coal and other solid fuels to burn on, as it needs to have air coming from underneath, while letting the ash fall through the bars.


Why install a wood burning stove?

Woodburning stoves are very efficient and easy to use. They produce a high level of heat and create a warming feature inside any room. The correct installation of a quality stove will undoubtedly add value to your home. As a result of the high demand manufacturers of stoves have created many exciting and contemporary styles as well as improving the engineering and efficiency of more traditional stoves. As a result there is a stove to suit any room.

Are all the stoves available as wood burning and mult ifuel?

Depending on manufacturer stoves will be available as wood only or multi fuel.


What are the specifications for fuel in multi fuel stoves?

Smokeless coal, wood, peat and some other solid fuels depending on manufacturer.


What does the term ‘multi fuel’ mean?

Some stoves only burn wood. To burn solid fuels such as coal, there needs to be a grate and a method of removing ash. It is now accepted that wood will burn just as well, if not better, on a grate. Therefore the majority of our stoves are fitted with a grate and can burn both wood and coal. These are known as multi fuel stoves.


What is Airwash?

Airwash is a method used to keep the stove glass clean. Pre heated air is drawn across the glass to create a barrier between the burning fire and the glass. By preheating this air the overall temperature of combustion is increased keeping the door glass cleaner during operation.


Can wood be burned in a multi fuel stove?

Yes.
