Planning your stove purchase, installation and maintenance in the summer

Planning your stove purchase, installation and maintenance in the summer

At first glance the idea planning a stove purchase, installation or even maintenance of an existing machine in the summer might seem bizarre? Who uses a stove in the summertime? Why on earth would you even begin planning a purchase, installation or maintenance of an existing stove in the hot summer months? Well………………..

Planning ahead

Many people seem to assume that once you purchase a stove it can be installed immediately and hey presto, job done. The reality is very different, even the process of choosing a stove relevant to you is not easy. There are many factors to take into consideration such as:-

•    What kind of stove would fit your room?
•    What heat capacity do you require?
•    Are there restrictive regulations in your area?
•    Have you budgeted for the cost of installation?
•    Are you looking for a contemporary or traditional design?

These are relatively simple questions, but sometimes it is best to see them written down to focus your mind. It is highly advisable to approach your local stove retailer at the earliest opportunity so you are not wasting time looking at stoves when it may not be possible due to your building shape, size, etc.

Broseley Evolution Ignite 5 Widescreen Multifuel Stove

It really is not difficult to see why the Broseley Evolution Ignite 5 Widescreen Multifuel Stove is proving so popular, even if it is still relatively early days. In effect Broseley have taken the expanded viewing area from the Broseley Evolution Ignite 7 Multifuel Stove and integrate this into the Broseley Evolution Ignite 5 Stove. Simple but genius!

Building on popularity

There is a saying in business; you do not need to reinvent the wheel to be successful. We know that widescreen stoves are the latest popular trend, demand is growing and new products are being released into the market. So, what better way for Broseley to respond than by taking an already popular multifuel stove and expanding the viewing area? It is also worth noting that this stove is Eco-Design Compliant despite the fact that these regulations do not come into play until 2022 – now that is planning ahead. So what do you get with your Broseley Evolution Ignite 5 Widescreen Multifuel Stove?

Air pollution and modern stove technology

Is the stove industry doing enough to combat climate change?

Climate change has been a central theme through the ongoing UK general election and is likely to continue to be a focal element of any future UK government. We have seen demonstrations across the world, promises of additional assistance from governments and the public are starting to put pressure on their political representatives. However, is the stove industry doing enough to combat climate change?

Renewable fuel sources

Perhaps one of the most basic issues to consider first of all is the use of wood as a fuel for wood-burning/multifuel stoves. This is a renewable source of energy as for each tree cut down another can be planted in its place. Indeed if we listen to the political parties today, they are promising to plant millions of trees across the UK to remove a degree of carbon from the atmosphere. So, when it comes to wood burning stoves it is fair to say that renewable fuel sources are a useful addition to the fight against global warming.
