Understanding Wood heating


Radiant heat is emitted from the hot surfaces of the heater providing heat directly to people and objects within the area. 

Convection heat allows warm air to be circulated around the room. Air which is drawn in between the firebox and the outer casing is then heated and forced out to deliver warm air throughout the room. 

Primary air enters the firebox above the door and is controlled by an air slide which regulates the combustion of the fire. 

Secondary air supply enters the fire box through a series of holes at the rear of the fire box. When combined with primary air this results in dual burning which can increase efficiency and reduce emissions. 

Firebricks are used to line the firebox protecting and prolonging its life. By keeping the fire temperature higher for longer they allow for more effective combustion increasing efficiency.

A three speed fan fitted to the wood heater assists in circulating volumes of warm air. This enables rooms to be heated faster. 

A deep ash bed allows for retention of ash resulting in reduced frequency of cleaning during the heating season. 

Self cleaning door glass is created by balancing the primary and secondary airflow through the firebox to eliminate the build up of dirt and grit on the glass door when good dry wood is burnt.
