What does the Stovax Chesterfield stove range have to offer?

In recent times we have seen a huge increase in the popularity of stoves with a traditional design. Trends tend to fluctuate between traditional and contemporary styles with other issues such as wide screens also coming into play. So, it is fair to say that the Stovax Chesterfield range of stoves is perfectly timed and proving popular. What does the Stovax Chesterfield stove range have to offer?

Latest additions to the Chesterfield stove range

As the number of stoves available through Stovax continues to expand, many eyes are now focused on the Chesterfield range. There are four new additions to this range which include the:-

Stovax Chesterfield 5 woodburning stove
Stovax Chesterfield 5 multifuel stove
Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen woodburning stove
Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen multifuel stove

These are machines which have been a number of years in the pipeline but have certainly been worth waiting for. There is a general ethos across these four machines, with only the Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen woodburning stove not incorporating the forthcoming Ecodesign Ready regulations. Quite why only this machine has not received approval is unknown, but it is still extremely efficient and works on reduced emissions.

Eco-friendly credentials

Those who follow the stove industry be well aware that eco-friendly credentials are becoming more important. Not only are consumers demanding that their stoves are eco-friendly but there are new regulations on the way. The sector has been the subject of criticism of late, although much of this is based on old statistics and older machines which were less efficient. The stoves that we see before us today are very different; they’re built to accommodate the new world and new regulations.

Ecodesign Ready

While the Ecodesign Ready regulations were introduced when the UK was part of the European Union, the UK government is still adapting the criteria. These are stoves which are much more environmentally friendly, creating significantly reduced emissions and also much more efficient. Interestingly, the major stove manufacturers such as Stovax are already releasing Ecodesign Ready stoves despite the fact the regulations do not come in until 2023.

This perfectly illustrates how important the environment, emissions and efficiency will be going forward. This will place a lot of pressure on stove manufacturers with the weaker likely to fall by the wayside.

DEFRA exemption/approval

It is worth noting that Ecodesign Ready stoves are exempt from DEFRA regulations and therefore applicable for use in smoke control areas. These are predominantly inner-city areas where air pollution has been and continues to be a problem. There is no doubt we will see the introduction of more smoke control areas in the future. As a consequence, stoves that can be used in these areas will grow in popularity.

Cleanburn combustion system

The cleanburn combustion system is the brainchild of Stovax and one which they are very proud of. Again, with significant focus on the environment and emissions, this has improved efficiency while reducing emissions. So how does this system work?

In simple terms, fuel burnt via the cleanburn system goes through a three-part combustion process. The fuel is burned, re-burnt and burnt again, creating two huge benefits. The heat output is increased while the emissions are reduced. In the current environment, it is fair to say that this is the perfect solution to the issues facing us. Aside from the fact it is environmentally friendly the potential fuel bill savings going forward will certainly mount up.

Airwash system

Stove enthusiasts will be well aware that the ability to watch the flickering flames and the burning embers is for many the ultimate experience. Even with a traditional viewing area, let alone the wider glass size, you can experience that relaxing warm cosy ambience. However, it is impossible to enjoy this experience if the glass is tarnished.

Many people automatically assume that the inner workings of woodburning or multifuel stoves are relatively straightforward. They are but that does not mean they are not ingenious. Using the flow of heat around the inner workings of your stove, some of this is directed across the glass viewing area. This burns the soot and debris on the glass, clears the area and allows you to view the flickering flames and the burning embers to your heart’s desire. Until you have experienced this, it is difficult to describe!

Stovax Chesterfield 5 woodburning stove

We will now move onto the woodburning and multifuel stoves which make up the Stovax Chesterfield stove range. The first is the Stovax Chesterfield 5 woodburning stove which incorporates a very eye-catching traditional design. While this is not the wider screen version, as you can see from the image, the stove itself is dominated by the viewing area. The machine offers heat output between 2.5 kW and 7 kW with a 5 kW nominal rating and an efficiency rating of 80%.

The dimensions are height 431 mm, width 472 mm with a depth of 397 mm and the machine weighs in at 102 kg. Incorporating all of the elements described above, this machine will be more than enough to heat a small to medium sized room and take the chill off a larger room. While there is significant demand for multifuel stoves, many people still prefer a traditional wood burner.

Stovax Chesterfield 5 multifuel stove

The Stovax Chesterfield 5 multifuel stove has these same credentials and technical specifications as the woodburning version but obviously burns wood and solid fuel. While for many people a wood burner is the more traditional option, there is no doubt that the expanded range of fuel available and potential cost savings are feeding the popularity of multifuel versions. Incorporating multifuel stoves with the latest in eco-friendly regulations and reduced emissions is not easy, but Stovax have managed it.

This is the kind of stove which can be centre of attention in your room or subtly placed in the corner. We know that many people treat their stove purchases as a type of room furniture, ensuring they fit in with the décor. Well, even the merest of glimpses at the Stovax Chesterfield 5 multifuel stove shows you this stove will fit in anywhere.

Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen woodburning stove

The demand for widescreen stoves has been increasing steadily in recent years. For many people, the widescreen available with the Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen woodburning stove is just perfect. You can see more flickering flames and more burning embers and it also seems to enhance the ambience. Thankfully, using the airwash system, the glass will be clean at all times so that you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

As with all four stoves covered in this article, heat output ranges from 2.5 kW to 7 kW with a nominal 5 kW rating. The enhanced viewing area means the dimensions are slightly different at height 519 mm, width 581 mm and a depth of 357 mm. Even though the Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen woodburning stove does not comply with the Ecodesign Ready regulations, this is still a highly efficient machine.

Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen multifuel stove

The Stovax Chesterfield 5 widescreen multifuel stove is not only Ecodesign Ready but also exempt from DEFRA regulations and therefore suitable for use in smoke control areas. In many ways you have the best of both worlds, the wider viewing area and with a multifuel stove you can burn wood and solid fuel. When you also consider the environmentally friendly credentials, the triple burn combustion system and reduced emissions, this stove seems to have everything?
