How to choose the right stove

Stove Help & Advice Home

Choosing the right stove means running through various decisions:

  • Type of stove: You might opt for a freestanding stove, or an inset that is built into the wall, or might want a boiler stove or pellet boiler.
  • The look of the stove: contemporary or traditional? In a coloured finish, enamelled, or plain black?
  • What type of fuel do you want to burn? If you are just burning wood then pick a dedicated woodburning, it will work better for you. You might also want to chose a stove with a big enough firebox so it is a match with the size of your logs.
  • Do you like in a city? You will likely need a DEFRA Exempt stove which is allowed to be used in a smoke control area.
  • What heat output do you need?: you need to work out how much heat the room that the stove is in, or for a central heating boiler stove, how much heat the whole house requires. You can use our Online Kilowatt Calculator to work out how much heat a room needs. For whole houses contact us and out tech. team can run the calculations for you.

We have a stove search page which can help you to refine the list of stoves which suit your needs. But we also love to help you, often it is quicker and more pleasant to just call us and one of our team can talk your through the options and make some stove suggestions.
