Log Burners, also known as wood burners or wood burning stoves have become a very popular replacement in the UK for open fires and are typically used for household heating. The terminology 'wood burning stove' may not be in your vernacular but essentially it is the very same thing as a 'log burner'.
Traditionally constructed from cast iron or steel they burn wood based fuel such as logs, wood pellets or wood briquettes.
The stove is connected to a flue system which extracts the hot gases produced by burning the fuel. Should I buy a wood burning only or multifuel stove? Wood burning stoves are more effective at burning wood than multifuel stoves are. This is because fuels burn in different ways, and while the dedicated log burner is designed purely with the efficient burning of wood in mind, multifuel stoves include features that work better for other fuels.
For example, the multifuel stove's riddling plate helps coal burn by allowing air to circulate up to it from underneath, but wood burns best when air reaches it from above. Knowing which fuels you want to burn is key to helping you identify the right stove for your home.
Wood Wood is a carbon-neutral fuel, meaning that when it is burnt, it only gives off the same amount of carbon as it took in when growing. And because there is very little manufacturing involved in producing logs none at all if you collect the wood yourself , this type of fuel is very eco-friendly. Does it matter what type of wood I use?
When choosing wood for your log burner, you should look at both its moisture content and its density. Well seasoned wood gives off less smoke and burns hotter and more efficiently than wood with high levels of moisture.
Hardwood is denser than softwood so has a higher heat content, meaning fewer logs are needed to keep the stove burning for a given length of time; softwood tends to light more easily than hardwood, and burns faster due to its resin content - this means it gives more immediate heat, so is ideal for kindling and initial burning. Coal If you're buying a stove because you want your home to be more environmentally-friendly, bear in mind that coal isn't a carbon-neutral fuel like wood.
There are many forms of coal, from anthracite which is a natural smokeless fuel and burns at very high temperatures to man made smokeless fuel both of which are the only fuels that can be burnt on a standard wood burning stove in smokeless zones. Other types of coal is less clean but cheaper to burn. Smokeless fuel There are several different types of smokeless fuels, including naturally-occurring anthracites, smokeless coke or smokeless briquettes. These types of fuels can be used in Smoke Control Areas, and are the only fuels recommended for overnight burning.
Wood pellets Made from wood by-products such as sawdust, wood pellets are drier and denser than wood logs, making them more efficient and very environmentally-friendly. They are particularly suited to homeowners with oil or bottled gas heating. If you want to burn wood pellets, you'll need to buy a pellet stove not a traditional wood burning one. Eco fuel Like wood pellets, eco fuel is made from recycled sawdust and clean wood waste, making them eco-friendly and sustainable.
Because they are formed into logs rather than pellets, they can be burnt on wood-burning stoves rather than pellet stoves. Bigger isn't always better. If you choose a stove that gives out too much heat, you may end up having to keep the windows open to cool the room down, or running the stove at a lower temperature, which will be less efficient. A stove's heat output is measured in kilowatts kW , and will range from 4kW to 16kW. The output that you need will be affect by:.
Our heat output calculator will help you work out how powerful your stove should be. Stoves have both 'nominal' and 'maximum' heat output ratings: wherever possible, choose a stove according to its 'maximum' heat output rating. What size stove should I buy? When choosing your stove, we recommend at least mmmm clearance to the sides and the rear, and mm to the front of the hearth.
If your stove will be near combustible materials such as wooden beams and un-coated plasterboard, you need to observe the stoves minimum distances to combustible materials. This is different for every stove and more information can be found in the Technical Details box on all stoves on our website. Will I be able to comply with building regulations? All stoves must comply with UK building regulations. There are specifications around how the flue is fitted, the size of the hearth and the distance of the stove from combustibles, all of which may affect the type of stove that you buy.
The regulations can be viewed in full here, but we have also provided a short summary of some of the key ones:. Flues - Height All stoves need a flue to remove the fumes out of the room and into the atmosphere. Building Regulations recommend a minimum flue system height of 4. If the diameter of your stove outlet is under mm, you must use an adaptor to connect it to the wider flue.
