A multifuel stove is very similar to a wood-burning stove in appearance and design. Multifuel refers to the capability of the stove to burn wood and also coal, also sometimes wood pellets, or peat. Stoves that have a grate for the fire to burn on and a removable ash pan are generally considered multi fuel stoves.
Many of our stoves come in multi-fuel or wood burning varieties – in both contemporary or traditional styles. We have a huge range of stoves of all shapes and sizes in our Colney Heath showroom close to St Albans, many of which you can see alight to get a real idea of how the stove would look in your home.

Wood is a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. When using your woodburning stove, for optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give up to twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your stove’s flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods.
Modern woodburning stoves burn much cleaner and more efficiently than older conventional stoves, and improved combustion techniques provide spectacular flames.
By upgrading to a CE certified and HETAS accredited woodburning stove, you can save wood, reduce smoke and enjoy the view all winter long.
What’s the difference between a woodburning stove and a multifuel stove?
There is one main differentiation between multifuel and woodburning appliances – Generally woodburning stoves burn on a bed of ash with no air supply under the grate (or no grate), multifuel versions have a grate to allow air supply under the smokeless fuel to aid combustion.
