Suppliers and installers of multi-fuel stoves in Kent
Multi Fuel stoves can burn wood and wood-based products and also coal-based products such as furnacite/anthracite and general coal. Multi Fuel stoves can burn for longer than wood only stoves, and depending on the stove size, can burn overnight, allowing a room or home to be heated while you sleep.
DOES A MULTI FUEL STOVE REQUIRE A CHIMNEY AND A FLUE?
Multi Fuel stoves require a class 1 chimney*. This needs to be installed in either an existing flue or using a new twin wall insulated rigid flue system. The flue would have to conform to current building regulations considering the termination height and distance it is to combustible materials. Country Fires are HETAS registered installers and we can advise you on the appropriate flue for your home. Please call us to discuss your needs or book an appointment for us to visit you. Our shop and showroom are in Peckham Bush, East Peckham which is close to Tonbridge, Paddock Wood, Kings Hill and Maidstone in Kent. In our shop and showroom, you can see installations of a range of contemporary and traditional style multi fuel stoves.
* A Class 1 chimney conforms to certain diameters and a chimney that is structurally sound. Class 1 chimneys are suitable for all fireplace types, as long as they are fault free.
CLEAN BURN TECHNOLOGY
The vast majority of new stoves have what is called Air Wash and Clean Burn technology. This technology makes the stoves run at optimum efficiency. Most towns and cities are classed as Smoke Control Areas and any stove installation requires an exemption by DEFRA to burn wood or coal based fuels. Please talk to us to find out more about clean burn technology and the stoves we can supply for houses in towns and cities.
CAN A MULTI FUEL STOVE HEAT MY WHOLE HOUSE?
Multi fuel stoves can be used to heat a single room or heat an entire house. This can be achieved by just the heat given off by the multi-fuel stove itself or by installing a boiler stove. A boiler stove is suitable to run your homes central heating system. The stove can also be joined to an existing system and run in tandem to provide the sole heating of your home or as backup.
