As the Stovax range of stoves continues to grow, it is difficult to keep up with the new additions. However, a quick glimpse at the Chesterfield 5 gas stove and the Chesterfield 5 electric stove will certainly catch your attention. It is the innovation from Stovax which is currently making them stand out from the rest. As you will see in coverage of the two stoves below, whether a gas or electric stove, there is no scrimping on quality. In a word, you get what you pay for, excellence!
Even though gas stoves have been around for some time, there is no doubt there has been a recent rise in their popularity. Sold under the Gazco brand name, the Chesterfield 5 Gas Stove contains all of the latest technology and as we touched on above, retains the style and quality associated with Stovax. Those who follow the stove market will be well aware that these machines are obviously useful sources of heat but for many they are also a focal point for their room. As you’ll see from the images, the ability to offer a classic design for a modern day gas stove says everything. In fact, from a distance you could easily mistake this for a wood-burning stove, so lifelike is the fuel bed and flames.
Climate change, energy efficiency and eco-friendly heat sources are obviously centre stage today. The energy efficiency for the conventional flue comes in at 76% with the balanced flue an impressive 90.6%. The Chesterfield 5 Gas Stove accommodates both natural gas and LPG and with heat output of up to 4 kW, it will do more than take the chill off a small to medium-sized room. The dimensions come in at width 472 mm, height 672 mm with a depth of 391 mm.
As you’ll see, the traditional design offers an enlarged viewing area which is further enhanced. The Chesterfield 5 Gas Stove contains the Stovax ecoflame black glass lining which reflects light from the side and the back panels. Consequently, this enhances the light entering your room thereby creating a relaxing ambience. Thankfully, the Chesterfield 5 Gas Stove also comes with thermostatic remote which allows you to control the heat and flame height settings, and ignite and extinguish your stove from the comfort of your sofa. Perfect!
Where do you start with recent developments in the electric stove market? The first thing to clarify is that the modern day electric stove is a million light years from the old three bar electric fires of years gone by. Those old, uneconomical and potentially dangerous machines were commonplace across the UK many years ago. Perhaps the term electric stove is enough to differentiate from an electric fire. The modern day electric stove needs to be seen to be believed.
The first thing that strikes you is the identical design and look of the Chesterfield 5 gas and wood-burning stoves. The reason for this, simple, the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove is made from the same materials and exactly the same design. In fact, unless you are fairly close to the machine you may not even realise it is an electric stove. The heat output is significantly less than its gas counterpart coming in at a maximum 1.5 kW, still more than enough to take the chill off a small to medium-sized room. However, there’s a lot more to the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove!
The Chromalight immersive LED system is a Stovax technology and adds a lot to the attractions of the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove. This system delivers three different flame options, amber, blue, and amber with blue accent. There are also 13 fuel bed lighting colours and what is described as a “spectrum mode”. The stove also accommodates a range of different fuel bed options which you can mix and match to your preference. As you will probably have hoped, the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove comes with a programmable thermostatic eco-remote control – you can control the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove while relaxing.
Last but by no means least; as we march headlong into an array of stricter eco-friendly restrictions, the Chesterfield 5 Electric Stove is already compliant with Ecodesign regulations. The machine has a useful open window detection system which will cut the power to save energy. The electric stove industry has come on in leaps and bounds in recent years. Technological advances have been much quicker than expected. This, together with the traditional design and materials, often associated with wood-burning and multifuel stoves, has created a new buzz around the sector.
The Chesterfield 5 Gas and Electric Stoves are identical in design, use the same materials and are extremely durable. While they are very different machines, they are certainly attracting the attention of consumers with growing demand for both gas and electric stoves. As we touched on above, the modern day gas and electric stove are as much a focal point of your room as the traditional wood-burning/multifuel stoves.
If you ever wondered what all the fuss is about, we recommend checking these two out in real life!
