Stylish, atmospheric and efficient to run, woodburning stoves are a popular heat source for modern living spaces. When it comes to choosing a woodburning stove, your decision will also be based on how the stove looks. So, we have put together a list of the latest stoves on offer.

Features to look out for:

  • Cleanburn: Stoves with this labelling function in a way that burns the gases given off in the first burn, stopping them from escaping the flue or sooting up the glass screen
  • Airwash: Air is blown over the glass screen to prevent combustion gases from creating soot here
  • Opti-burn: Stovax offers this function which balances the heat output and the airwash function for a more efficient burn
  • Autopilot: Some stoves will self-regulate the air intake for maximum efficiency meaning you can sit back and relax rather than manually adjusting it
  • Ecodesign Ready label: This shows that the stove meets new efficiency and emissions limits for woodburning stoves that are due to come into force in 2022

How to Improve the Performance of Any Wood Stove

Wood stoves have improved by leaps and bounds over the past twenty years. In 2018 log burners are technologically advanced and meticulously engineered heating appliances.

The Aspect wood burner range from Hunter Stoves

The British company Hunter Stoves has been at the forefront of these improvements, and their Aspect stove range is a prime example of performance meeting modern stove design, but according to Hunter’s Lead Engineer, Michael Stoneman, there is one piece of advice that can improve the performance of any stove on the market.

“You should only ever burn dry wood. This can never be overstated. Never burn wood with more than a 20% moisture content. You would never pour water on a fire you want to burn hot, and essentially that is what one does when burning wet wood.” According to Michael, using dry wood will not only improve the way your appliance works, but it will help protect the environment.
