Traditional Eco Design Stoves

If you want all the beauty of a traditional looking stove but with modern features and brand-new technology, then have a browse through our large range of traditional Eco Design stoves. These stoves have been re-designed internally by the manufacturers and tested by the Stove Industry Alliance (SIA) to make them environmentally friendly by producing significantly less particulates and emissions into the atmosphere through a more complete burning process. So now you can enjoy the beauty of a traditional stove in your home without impacting on the environment.

Here you will find our large range of traditional Eco Design stoves, all of which are available in different outputs, sizes and styles, from small 3kW traditional Eco Design stoves, to large 10kW plus traditional Eco Design stoves, we are confident we can help you find the right traditional-style stove for you. New designs and technologies mean that some of these traditional stoves have a had a slight re-design externally as well as internally, so now there is even greater choice for style of traditional stoves, such as traditional features but with a large glass window, something of which was not commonly seen in traditional stoves of the past.

This will depend entirely on the size of the room, the location of the stove within the house and how well the house is insulated. There is a guideline calculation to help you find this out: measure the room (length x width x height) and multiply these figures. Divide this figure by 14 and this will give you the nominal heat output. If your room is poorly insulated or without double glazed windows, divide the figure by 10. Similarly, if your house is new-build and the room is very well insulated, divide the figure by 25 to achieve your nominal output. Be aware that many stove manufacturers offer a ‘nominal’ output, and this will have an output range (for example, if you have a 5kW nominal output stove, it will have a range of about 3-7kW, depending on the amount of fuel used and the positioning of the air controls). You will also find that there are often different sized stoves with the same nominal output. This is due to the size of the firebox inside the stove and the amount of fuel used to measure the output. If the same amount of fuel is used to measure the output but in different sized fireboxes, there will inevitably be the same output. Be aware of this when choosing your stove, as having a stove with a large firebox but only loading it with a small amount of fuel will cause problems during the combustion process and will result in the air wash not working properly. Similarly, if you buy a small stove and fill it to the brim with fuel, you will cause problems due to overfiring, which will result in damage to your stove, baffle and/ or flue system as well as the potential risk of a chimney fire. There are also limitations regarding the positioning of the stove, either freestanding in a room or in an opening. These are known as ‘distances to combustibles and non-combustibles’ and will vary with each manufacturer. As a general rule, there should be a minimum of 100-150mm to non-combustible materials, such as brick. This is to ensure good airflow around the stove, allowing heat to radiate out into the room. If this is not achieved, brickwork and plaster around the stove can crack due to excessive heat, and most of the heat will be lost up the chimney. If you are in any doubt and need help choosing the right size stove for your room, come and talk to us at Firebox Stoves and can provide you with friendly, expert advice.
Absolutely! Although if you are planning on having a stove installed in a new-build or passive house, do not follow the guidelines for sizing a stove for use in a regular home. Due to increased insulation and lack of natural draughts, a stove with a significantly lower output would be recommended so as not to produce too much heat. In a new build or passive house, air flow is significantly restricted from the external to the internal and so choosing a stove with a direct air supply option is a must. This will ensure the air used for combustion is taken directly from outside as opposed from in the room where the appliance (and occupants) are located. This will also reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning as the fire burns out as the combustion air is not being recycled in the room. Not every stove is direct air compatible, so it is important to check with your supplier and select the right stove whilst also ensuring the building is able to have the pipe venting directly through an external wall.
SIA Ecodesign Ready is a European-wide programme established by the Stove Industry Alliance (SIA) to ensure all stoves designed and produced after 2022 adhere to strict emission targets and regulations, set by the SIA and HETAS. In simpler terms, it means that all stoves must be designed to be significantly more efficient compared to a 10-year-old stove for example, and manufacturers must be able to prove that their stoves release at least 55% less particulate matter emissions through a more complete burning process. Any stove which has not passed the stringent testing will not be allowed to be sold or installed and will be withdrawn from the market by 2022. SIA Ecodesign has been introduced to help meet the Clean Air Strategy 2019 which aims to combat air pollution by reducing emissions and particulate matter by 46% by 2030. The aim is not only to produce more efficient heating appliances which release significantly less emissions, but also to raise awareness about our current air quality and environment and help to educate and raise awareness regarding our unsustainable usage of fossil fuels in the industry, farming and heating sectors. New technology and the way stoves are designed will allow combustion to be more even within the burning chamber to ensure any particulates are burnt off before going up the chimney.
