A woodburning inset stove is hearth mounted and generally installed within a solid fuel fireplace to replace an open fire or wood-burning back boiler, although some can be fitted with a four-sided frame higher up the chimney breast, removing the need for a complete fireplace, thus saving space. The benefits of a wood inset stove are they do not require a full inglenook opening creating, avoiding the building work this creates and the wood inset stove has a lot greater efficiency than open fires, with efficiencies in excess of 80%. Many of the inset wood burning stoves have a clean contemporary look to fit in any modern simple surroundings.
The wood inset stoves we have on offer are built worldwide from leading manufacturers such as; Arada, Stovax (Studio and Riva), Westfire, Hunter and Mendip, some of which meet the 2022 SIA Ecodesign Ready legislation. Wood burns best on a bed of ash with its combustion air coming from above, so wood burning only inset stoves have a flat fuel bed with very little or no air entering beneath the fuel. We recommend you buy fully seasoned or kiln-dried wood to ensure you get premium performance from your stove, look out for the 'Woodsure Ready to Burn' scheme when purchasing fuel.
Prices of the wood inset stoves include VAT and delivery to mainland UK.
