- Stovetrackworld – which small woodburner for standard 22" x 16" fireplace?
Dunsley Highlander 3, but I haven’t looked at its size…Posted 3 years agomrmonkfingerMember
We’ve got a Dean Forge Croft. It’s excellent. Wood or multifuel, can be changed over (easy-ish job – remove multifuel grate, plug a hole with fire cement). Does the swirly secondary burn thing on logs very well.
Dartmoor 5 is small, should fit a standard opening.
Previously, we’ve had a Villager Puffin in that size opening but I wouldn’t recommend it TBH (overpriced and really a coal only stove).Posted 3 years ago
Regs seem to suggest no minimum clearance as the fireplace is stone (Diagram 26 Page 38), or am I missing something?Posted 3 years agonbtMember
That our Stovax Stockton 4 in the opening left by a “normal” open grate fire, fitted by an approved installer and resulting in a certificate and so on.
To elaborate on the multifuel thing – if you’re only lighting the fire for the evening, we find that wood is enough. We have tried various types of solid fuel but there isn’t the critical mass in the fire to keep it burning overnight (I grew up with a coal fire so am quite used to keeping a fire in all week) without ripping through vast quantities of coal. A bigger fire would be better but at 4kW, I would go for a simple woodburner next timePosted 3 years agorockhopper70Member

It’s very nice and works well with either coal or wood.
I like having the option to burn either fuel as in winter, I tend to keep it ticking over with coal. The rest of the year, burn a log or two if it gets chilly, for the cosy effect, apparently.bedmakerSubscriber
If it’s to shoehorn in like this, don’t! This one was a real danger, as well as putting out very little heat.

As twinwall says, go inset or dig out the fireback. An inset fitted right works really well.
Aarrow I400 works well if you want to keep the existing surround with minimum fuss.
And I don’t know why my pics have been flipped! They’re the right way up on flickr 😕Posted 3 years ago
