choosing a replacement wood burner

Recommended Posts

What recommendations for a eco design stove, 5kW(t), to fit in a alcove width  60cms, height  90cms and depth 40cms to front of chimney breast but  projecting into room 20-40cms is not a problem.

 

It's to replace a Jotul 602 , clean burning is the first requirement and cost a lesser consideration. It will exhaust into 8" flue so either a 150mm or 125mm flue outlet.

Dads go the baby Burley. It's OK but build quality is not up to Jotul standards with the handle being very poor also it only likes dinky logs.

Burley Holleywell for me . Takes 12" logs by the way . Not had any problems . Soft wood goes out over night , hard wood leaves some nice embers to get going in the morning ,

Did you not get On with the 602? They do a clean burn version. Selling the 602 by chance?

I love it but it's 30 years old, if they do one that meets ecoburn standards I'd  consider it.

 

It suffers from corrosion at the back and  around the plate joints. Rear damage cause dby me shutting door on over long logs. It also takes a bit too long to get hot enough to burn cleanly as it is an all cast iron design, fine for running continuously but I tend only to burn in the evenings.

Given the choice I'd harvest and burn  natural regen passed through a branch logger but fact is I only have limited access to arb waste and some decent logs c/o JBurch so dinky is out of the question.

Don't know what ecobirn standards are but the rereleased it with clean burn technology it's called an f602cb. Do shout if you want to sell your old 602. After one just now. Ta

Not actually eco design ready yet.

What are the requirements for eco design ?.... Just looked it up /.  My Burley was advertised to run at 89% efficiency when I bought it 4 years ago .
