How to Choose Your Burley Wood Burning Stove

Burley’s wood burning stoves are the most efficient stoves on the market and are well known for their high quality, efficiency, and clean burning. If you are considering buying a Burley wood-burning stove, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

1. Consider your needs
The first step is to consider your needs. How big is the room you want to heat? How much heat do you need? Once you know your needs, you can start to narrow down your choices.

2. Choose the right size

As a general rule of thumb for KW requirements take the room volume in cubic metres and divide by 20 this number will be the KW of heat needed for that space. You are best off under-sizing a stove and running it efficiently rather than oversizing and slumbering as it is too hot and you won’t be able to use the stove in the spring and autumn.

Although our stoves are rated as 4, 5, 8 or 12 kW, this is only a nominal rating used for testing purposes. In reality, the maximum heat-to-room outputs on Burley’s stoves are:

Model         Nominal rating     Maximum output
9X04            4kW                               5.3kW
9X05            5kW                               6.4kW
9X08            8kW                              11.7kW
9X12             12kW                            18.3kW

3. Consider the style and features

Burley wood-burning stoves come in a choice of three styles. There are traditional stoves 91XX range, contemporary stoves 93XX range, and even stoves with a modern twist with a cast door 94XX range. Choose a stove that will complement the style of your home and the fireplace setting. Consider the features of the stove. Some Burley stoves have features like a cast iron door or a catalytic converter, which can further improve the efficiency and performance of the stove.

4. Get professional installation
Burley wood-burning stoves should always be installed by a qualified professional HETAS installer. This will ensure that the stove is installed properly and safely to current building regulations and registered with the local authority.

5. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions

Once your Burley wood-burning stove is installed, it is important to follow the comprehensive manufacturer’s instructions. This will help you to get the most out of your stove and keep it in good working condition. The supplied 5-minute guide is a must-read document to help prevent damage especially if you have used an inefficient stove previously.
