Multifuel Stoves

So what is a Multifuel Stove?

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.

Multifuel stoves are our most popular products and all of us have them in our homes.  If you take care only to burn seasoned wood  and look after your stove it will last many winters and become the heart of your home.

Woodburning stoves

Woodburning Stoves are one of the most environmentally friendly ways of heating your living space, they are very efficient, and clean burning.

We believe the best way to choose a stove is to experience a range of them first hand – we stock a wide variety of makes, models and sizes, to suit all budgets, to give you the opportunity to compare styles and functionality before making a decision.

We have many years experience, and can help you identify which models are suitable for your home, and your own unique requirements, whether you have a chimney, or not.

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.
