Points to consider when buying a fire

You have oriented yourself and decide to purchase a wood-burning fireplace. You don't make such a decision overnight and there are a number of important points that you should take into account so that you can enjoy your new fireplace to the fullest. For example, what about the discharge of the flue gases and how high should the efficiency and capacity be to optimally heat your home? In short: what should you pay attention to when purchasing a wood-burning fire?

1. Exhaust of flue gases

A wood-burning fire needs a flue or chimney to remove the flue gases released during combustion. When purchasing a wood-burning fire, you must therefore take into account the presence of an exhaust duct, or the possibility of installing one.

Do you have a drain? Then discuss with an authorized dealer whether it is suitable for the wood-burning stove you have in mind. If you need to install a new chimney or a new flue, this must be done prior to purchasing the wood-burning fire. So start on time with the realization of the drainage channel.

2. Efficiency and power of the wood-burning stove

Regardless of how you plan to use the fire, as an atmosphere or to heat the room, in both cases it is important to choose a wood-burning fire with the right efficiency and capacity. We briefly explain how to choose the right return and power.

  • The efficiency of the wood-burning stove
The efficiency of the wood fire indicates how much energy, in the form of heat, you get back for the amount of energy you put into the fire. This means that the higher the efficiency of the wood-burning stove, the less fuel you need to comfortably heat your home.

It is therefore advisable in all cases to purchase a wood fire with a high efficiency. A high efficiency ensures both efficient and cleaner combustion and reduces heating costs.

Our wood fires achieve an average efficiency of 80%. View our collection of wood fires?

  • The required power
Contrary to the yield, with the capital it does not apply that a higher capital is always better. For example, if your heater has a high capacity, but it only heats a small space, it can quickly become uncomfortably warm.

Wondering what the right capacity is for the room you are going to heat with the wood fire? With our tips you can easily calculate the required power!
