WOODWARM STOVES

For centuries fireplaces have been the focus of every home, providing light, warmth and entertainment.

An open fire has historically been associated with a warm chimney and, on testing, it can often be shown that 90% of the heat from the fire can be lost to the chimney and the outside air. Woodwarm stoves are safe, single self contained units which eliminate the waste and put the heat back to the room where it belongs.

All Woodwarm stoves feature an excellent air wash system. After circulating the stove, preheated air flushes down over the double glazed door keeping the glass perfectly clean at all times, even at low temperatures. Superior clean burn efficiency means that not only is more heat achieved on less fuel, but combustion products in the flue are also reduced, causing fewer flue problems. Reduction in pollution combined with more efficiency creates a really environmentally friendly device.

We know how to take care of your stove and chimney, do you?

Things to keep in mind when using a stove

A lot of us might not be aware of all responsibilities that comes with a stove installation such as “How often do I need to have the chimney swept?”,“Do I have all required alarms installed?” Consequences of not knowing the answers to these questions can lead to serious problems, but do not worry – we at Chalk Farm Stoves see it as our duty to make sure that all our customers know these answers and all other questions they may have. We have listed some key points in the blog post below:

Alarms: Believe it or not, fire alarms continue to save many lives each year. Our duty as a stove supplier and fitter, is to make sure all customers are aware of the importance of a working fire alarm that can detect fire and smoke at early stages. Carbon Monoxide detector is another essential alarm every stove owner is required to have and we highly recommend checking your alarms on a regular basis to ensure they are working properly.

Fuel: What sort of fuel should I use for my stove? This is something to bear in mind when choosing a stove, as specialists in the industry we make sure this is one of the first things our customers will know before they choose a stove. However, there are some points that are good to know:

  • It is advised that wood should be seasoned for 18 months for optimal heating and all firewood needs to be dry and split to ease the burning process.

Some firewood makes more ash than others and to prevent any damages to your chimney and your property it is important to have your chimney swept frequently. To ensure that your chimney is swept often enough we do advise you to contact your local Chimney Sweep.

Time should be taken over deciding which stove is right for you and your property. Once you have made the right decision you can truly enjoy the lovely atmosphere that the stove brings to your room.

NEVER BEEN EASIER TO BUY A STOVE!

What if someone would tell you that it’s easy to purchase a stove? Well from the 1st of January 2018, it will be much easier to do so, as all stoves will have to be displayed with an energy label. Most new stoves will be labelled with A or A+, just like any other domestic appliances.

As within any market, the quality of the stoves are better than ever and we are proud suppliers of some of the top quality stoves on the English and the European market. People are often astonished that a new stove can actually be over 65% more efficient compared to a 10-year-old stove and up to 80% more efficient than an open fireplace. It is important to know this as you can save a lot on having a new stove installed to your house. More importantly, did you know that by choosing a wood burning stove you will make a lot more carbon savings, instead of using gas or oil as a heating source?

Despite this, a lot of us still might think that purchasing a stove is a long expensive process, but this is not always the case. With our extensive experience within the stove business, we at Chalk Farm stoves and TMRS Stove Fitting are able to advise you on the best options that will suit your needs. We are also pleased to announce our latest team member MV Decora who has been in the building business for over 10 years.

5 Ways to Prolong the Life of Your Stove

A solid fuel stove (multi-fuel and wood varieties) is a significant cash investment and so it makes sense to look after it correctly to ensure it is well maintained.  Our years in the stove business has taught us a number of things and here are just five things you can do to keep your stove going for many years.

1. Sweeping

Emptying the ash pan as and when required is something you are likely to do on a pretty regular basis.  However, it is easy to overlook the flue.  Make sure that you sweep your flue at least once a year.

2. Recommended Dry Fuel

It is critical to always use the correct fuel for your stove as recommended in the manufacturer's guide which should come with your brand new stove.  If you are unsure always ask for professional advice.  Do not try and guess.

3. Not Over Firing

Having confirmed you are using the correct fuel in your particular stove, ensure that you do not overload with too much fuel.  Your installer will advise you at the time of installation what you should do and, of course, details will be in the manufacturer's instructions.

4. Regular Servicing

An annual service programme for your stove helps to ensure you have trouble free use throughout the year.

5. General Care

  • Take care to close the stove door firmly but gently ensuring an airtight seal.  Do not slam.
  • Take care with pokers and fireside implements and the stove glass is breakable.
  • Keep young children safe with a fire guard.
