Here's what Stovax say about their wood burning stove ranges:
"All Stovax stoves are designed either for multi-fuel use, which means they burn logs, smokeless fuels or peat/turf briquettes, or as woodburners only. Multi-fuel stoves have a riddling grate which allows ash to be riddled into a built-in ashpan to create the optimum conditions for efficient combustion.
Woodburners have a fixed grate and no ashpan, since wood burns best on a bed of ashes. Wood is better in environmental terms as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland.
For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give a higher output than that of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your flue.
Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have a greatly increased calorific value of softwoods for the same volume. In rural areas, Stovax stoves have a particular advantage as they allow homeowners to burn readily available log supplies from local sources. Indeed, if you are a farmer, smallholder or landowner your fuel could even be free!
Woodburning efficiency can even be achieved in the most urban environments with our extensive range of Smoke Control Area approved stoves. Just as importantly, if you choose a Stovax stove with a boiler option, you can even provide yourself with domestic hot water or run radiators from the same fire".
