There’s nothing like the warmth and ambience of a wood burner stove when the nights start to draw in. They bring character and charm to a room and provide a cosy atmosphere.
Hence, the popularity of wood burners has increased in recent years, and prices have been following suit. However, Stovax provides some of the best value products on the market with an extensive range of the most efficient wood burning stoves.
The latest woodburner stove technology
Generally, open fires have an efficiency of up to 10-20% whereas a wood burning stove has a heating efficiency of up to 86%. This is because high-efficiency wood burners retain most of the heat inside your home with less going to waste up the chimney.
And the efficiency of Stovax wood burners is down to some very clever technology.
Their wood burners integrate Airwash technology, which is achieved by air being drawn into the top of the stove and heated in the central air chamber before being directed down behind the glass door to create a screen between the fire and the glass. As a result, fuller flames can be enjoyed from the fire without the glass becoming streaked with soot.
Another feature of their stoves is Cleanburn technology, a system where warm air is introduced into the firebox just above the normal height of the fire. The effect is to allow the combustion of unburned hydrocarbons in the smoke stream, which provides a cleaner burn, i.e. fewer soot particles going up the chimney/flue and into the atmosphere. This also pushes more heat into the room with less going up the chimney.
And homeowners without a chimney can still enjoy a wood burning stove by fitting a twin-wall pipe system such as the Stovax Professional XQ™. This will allow you to enjoy a real log fire in your family room, conservatory or anywhere you choose.
Contemporary and traditional designs
Stovax has been developing and manufacturing high-quality wood burning stoves for over 30 years and offers a contemporary and traditional range.
Traditional wood burning stoves such as the Stockton, Huntingdon and Brunel are perfect for hearths or inglenooks. Alternatively, you could decide on a more contemporary free-standing stove that can become the centrepiece of a room. With glass and steel versions available, you can place the stove upon a matching steel plinth or on one of Stovax's compatible benches.
Both their traditional and contemporary stoves have been crafted to be clean burning and highly efficient - and as they come in a wide choice of sizes and styles, you can easily find one to suit your chosen room or living space.
CE approved and covered by warranty
Stovax wood burning stoves are CE marked, meaning they’ve been independently tested to exacting European standards for both heating efficiency and emissions. All their wood burners are designed, tested and manufactured to the highest possible quality and safety standards – and they provide a 5-year extended warranty on their stoves.
