What to Look for When Buying a New Stove

With the darker nights drawing in and the temperature dropping, now’s the ideal time to think about buying that new stove.

Apart from the obvious charm of curling up in front of a roaring fire to watch the TV, there are many benefits to installing a new stove.

From heating your home to saving on the energy bills, there are lots of things to consider before installing a stove.

Types of Stoves

There are many different types of fuel types for stoves, such as multi-fuel, wood burning, gas and electric stoves.

Multi-fuel stoves give you the option of burning wood, coal and smokeless fuels.

If you have a large room to heat, a double-sided multi-fuel stove or a double depth stove provides a much larger heating surface to keep bigger rooms warmer.


A multi-fuel boiler stove has the added benefit of heating your water which will also help to keep your fuel bills down.

An insert stove is great for those with an empty fireplace that they can place the stove into, whereas a cassette stove fits into your wall to give a sleek, flush and contemporary look.

Wood Burning Stoves

With a wood burning stove, you get the warmth and luxury of a real fire with the added benefit of a clean, sustainable and cheaper fuel source.


Wood Stoves also come in different types such as freestanding wood stoves, double depth, double-sided, cassette and inset as well as wood back boiler stoves which give you piping hot water and heat up to 15 radiators in your home

Gas Fires

For those who prefer the style of a traditional stove but want to use your existing fuel sources, gas or electric fuelled stove are great alternatives.


Gas fires are easy to maintain and very economical and come in a choice of design, such as wall-mounted, insert gas fires or cassette gas stoves.

Electric Fires

An electric fire is the simplest way to heat your home as you can plug and go. With no need for chimneys or a hearth, electric fires now also have stunningly realistic flames to give you the full effect.

Installing A New Stove

Wood-burning and multi-fuel stoves will need to be connected to a flue to allow the CO2 to escape.

Don’t attempt to install a wood-burning or multi-fuel stove yourself. Always make sure it is installed by a professional HETAS approved specialist.
