STOVES & FIREPLACES
STOVES & FIREPLACES
In today’s modern household full of different gadgets and gizmos, one thing remains the same. You cannot beat the warm, cosy feeling of a real fire.
With inflating gas and electric prices, installing a woodburning or multi-fuel stove offers an affordable, stylish and authentic alternative.
Modern stoves are a way of keeping utility costs down, as well as reducing your carbon footprint. Choosing a multi-fuel stove that burns either smokeless coal or wood is a great way of having fuel flexibility. If you are lucky enough to have your own supply of wood, that’s even cheaper fuel costs.
Wood is often referred to as a carbon neutral fuel source due to its limited carbon dioxide emission. When burnt, the carbon dioxide amount emitted by the wood is equal to or less than that absorbed in the tree’s lifetime.
Stoves come in a wide variety of sizes and designs to suit your taste and your property’s needs. At Chivers Stove Centre, our stoves come in a range of sizes that start at 4kw, all the way up to 12kw.
To choose the right stove, you must first calculate your room’s cubic capacity and divide by 14. This is an approximation of required heat output.
There are other factors involved in deciding on your stove size, such as optimal room temperature, how many windows and doors the room has and building insulation.
At Chivers Stove Centre, our very knowledgeable and friendly team are always on hand to offer advice on choosing the correct size stove.

Stoves are available in a range of sizes starting from 3 kw and ranging up to 12 kw (boiler stoves go even higher). The first step in choosing a stove is to establish the size of stove. Calculate the cubic capacity of your room in metres and divide by 14. This is your base point for your stove size. You then have to consider how warm you want to be, how well insulated your house is and how many doors and openings you have in your room. After taking all these factors into account you may want to increase the kilowatt size for the stove.

the new flexifuel system
The new Flexigrate design has now been introduced to the majority of models. This grate system is unique to Arada and has been designed to increase the efficiency of the stove by burning more of the available fuel. The Ecoburn 4 Plus model is one of the most efficient stoves on the market.
The crucible shape of the Flexigrate ensures that fuel is constantly fed towards the centre of the fire therefore there is no unburnt fuel. The unique dimples on the grate bars fill with ash to help protect from heat damage. The unique crucible shape also helps to build a natural layer of ash to optimise combustion efficiency.
During the summer we have been busy sourcing more quality fireside companion sets and log holders. We now have some lovely individual forged log holders on show in our showroom.
We offer a large selection of quality companion sets in both contemporary and traditional style. In the event that you just need to replace one tool on your companion set, we also offer single tools such as pokers, toasting forks, brushes. We try, wherever possible, to stock British Made quality products and we are always on the lookout for the unusual.
Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs chose the Ecofan as one of HIS GREEN HEROES at the ‘Grand Designs Live’ exhibition in London. Researchers from the faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo collaborated on a scientific study to measure the reduction in firewood needed to maintain comfort with the use of an Ecofan and concluded that Ecofans not only circulated warm air throughout the room more efficiently but provided savings of up to 14% on fuel costs.
Save even more on your fuel bills – use less fuel. Genuine Caframo Ecofans – made in Canada. 2 Year warranty.
Non-combustible hearths are required. These can be stone, slate, granite, glass etc. We can install these.
As an alternative, a bespoke fireplace and hearth in a variety of stone can be designed and installed by our local Stonemason.
