Multifuel & Woodburning Stoves
A smoke exempt appliance is capable of burning approved smokeless coal, or has been tested to the DEFRA standard to burn wood logs in a smoke control area. Many parts of the UK are smoke control areas, where you are not permitted to emit smoke from a chimney, unless you’re burning an authorised fuel, or using an exempt appliance.
If you’re unsure whether or not you live in a smoke control area, then you can check with your local council. To find them visit:https://www.gov.uk/find-your-local-council
Operating the correct air control on the appliance draws combustion air down the inside of the glass, helping to keep it from sooting up, while supplying combustion air into the firebox of the appliance. The firebox is where the fuel is placed.
Wood: Hard, seasoned wood with a moisture content less than 20% or kiln dried wood.
For an accurate calculation of your heat requirement, you will need a site survey to be carried out by a qualified heating engineer. For a basic, approximate estimate of the heat requirement of a room, the following formula can be done: Using the principle that you need 1kW of heat for every 15m3 of space, (in an average insulated room) you will need to measure your room (width, depth and height) in metres then multiply these figures together to get the volume, and finally divide by 15.
So a room 4.5m x 5.5m x 2.3m = 57m3 ÷ 14 = 4.0kW
Once this calculation has been done, you need to decide if there are additional insulation factors that will affect the ability of the room to retain the heat produced by the appliance. A well insulated room of the same size as a poorly insulated room can require as much as 50% less heat demand, this is where a heating engineer can do a more accurate ‘heat loss calculation’.
