stove in conservatory

Recommended Posts

My wife keeps complaining that it's cold in the conservatory and keeps asking could we put a wood burner in there,just wondering has anyone else ever fitted one in there's and if so what make/size,our conservatory is only 4m x3m so we would probably get away with a pretty small one,any advice/pics would be much appreciated .

We fitted one in our kitchen, which is basically a conservatory. Though the regulations are different and more stringent I believe if installing a stove in a conservatory...

We had to replace a glass ceiling panel with a plastic coated wood panel to allow expansion joint fitting where the flue penetrates the ceiling.

We went for a burley stove, and it's great. Bit smokey on lighting due to a serious down draught, but that's not the stove's fault.

It's probably gonna have to go in the corner,was thinking about a round/oval one something like a calor gas bottle size or slightly bigger? Can you get stoves that size,had a look at some sites online but there all over a grand seems a bit steep to me.

  Depending on whether the 4m is an elevation or front view and allowing 500W losses through the floor then even if the whole conservatory were  single pane glass and there is a temperature difference of 20C you are losing 5kW plus air changes.

 

A stovax stockton is about 600quid and small but a bit basic. You do need to vent the flue above the eaves of the house so I'd expect the double skinned flue to cost more than the stove, then you have to consider building regs and compliance of the stove and flue.

Yes the top of the flu should be 2 feet higher than the ridge of the house roof I think, otherwise you can get wind Eddie's, downdraft, won't draw kind of problems, or smoke coming into upstairs windows.
