When it comes to stoves, multi fuel stoves can offer a great deal more flexibility than wood burning stoves. The wider choice of fuels suitable for use with multi fuel stoves can make these products more heat efficient, and substantial savings in fuel costs can be achieved.
Multi fuel stoves are suitable for use with various types of fuel, including traditional wood burning logs, coal, peat briquettes, wood pellets and even some biomass products.
Each type of fuel has particular properties – different types of fuel produce varying levels of heat and light, and burn with differing levels of intensity. These factors all have their own effect when used in the home, meaning that a multi stove can be much more flexible and convenient in how it is used.
For instance, you may wish to burn fuels such as coal to achieve maximum heat efficiency and output on long winter evenings. On the other hand, if you have guests you are trying to impress with a visual display of a roaring open fire, wooden logs may be a better bet.
With price levels varying between different types of fuel, as a multi fuel stove owner you are in control – it is your choice of how cost effective you want your stove to be at any given point in time.
How a multi fuel stove works
Multi fuel stoves typically feature a riddling grate for the effective combustion of the full range of available solid fuels, including wooden logs. The riddling grate permits ash and cinders to be riddled into the ashpan, which maintains the primary airflow through the fuel bed, creating the best conditions for burning multi fuels.
Depending on the manufacturer and exact model of multi fuel stove, there may be limitations on the type of fuel that can be used. Make sure you do your research to establish which fuels are compatible or, better still, let the expert team at Wakefords do the hard work for you!
