Over the last 10 years, the stove in all its forms has become very popular in homes of all shapes and size across Surrey and the UK. There are a number of different types of stove in terms of appearance, fuel and use. What was once a humble method of heating small cottages has now become the fire of choice for millions of homes. See below for our range of Modern and Contemporary Multi fuel and Wood Burning Stoves.
Modern and Contemporary Stoves
Stoves offer high levels of efficiency, safety and less mess than conventional open fires. The ability to be able to close the doors and leave a stove burning without any concerns of spitting embers or children and pets touching the flames is certainly appealing to many people.
As with all types of fire, making the right choice is critical. The wrong size stove in the wrong place could lead to minimal heat levels or dangerously high temperatures close to susceptible walls or door frames. Wakeford’s stock a wide range of stoves and are happy to help advise on the right sort for you. As always, we offer the option of a full installation service with any stove you buy.
Wood Burning Stoves
Available in both contemporary or more traditional designs, modern wood burning stoves are designed to burn wood in a highly efficient manner. Compared to an open fire a wood burning stove will considerably reduce the household’s carbon footprint per weight of wood burnt. This type of stove offers all the visual pleasure of a wood fire but also considerable heat production from the stove itself as well as directly through the glass front. Wakefords stock a number of different brands including Stovax, Faber, Vallor and more.
Offering more flexibility when it comes to the types of fuel you can use; multi-fuel stoves allow you to choose what is right for your home and also your heating needs at the time. These stoves are able to burn coal products which can provide an enormous amount of heat but sometimes don’t produce the classic flames and visual appeal of wood. Being able to burn both allows you to add wood on top of a coal base and get the best of both worlds. On a very cold winters day burning purely coal will provide a long-lasting warmth but you can also use wood to impress your dinner party guests with the real fire look.
