High-Output Boilers: Multi-fuel Boiler Stoves
Five models within the Yeoman range have been specifically designed to supply your domestic hot water and central heating requirements or augment your existing heating system via ‘link up’ technology. Whichever your choice, you will enjoy all the atmosphere of a real fire and exceptional heating performance for other areas of your home.
When providing hot water and central heating, each stove is capable of feeding an average 8000BTU hotwater cylinder and from 8 up to 19 radiators. The exact number of radiators will depend upon how many rooms you wish to heat and sizes of those rooms. Radiators also come in a variety of sizes/capacities but, for example, a typical 400mm high x 1000mm wide, single panel radiator requires 2500BTU/hr. You should always consult a qualified heating engineer to ensure the stove can meet your requirements.
Alternatively, you can ‘link up’ a Yeoman High-Output Boiler with your existing or proposed heating system to reduce your reliance on gas or oil and help decrease overall heating fuel costs. There are ways to link with conventional oil or gas central heating, gas or oil sealed heating systems, combi boilers, underfloor heating and even solar panels to provide flexible and cost-effective solutions. Yeoman produces a ‘link up’ guide showing typical arrangements and covering some frequently asked questions. You may find it useful to download this from www.yeoman-stoves.co.uk/linkup before discussing your requirements with a qualified heating engineer.
All Yeoman High-Output Boiler stoves are designed for multi-fuel use and incorporate an externally operated riddling grate. This is because solid mineral fuels tend to provide greater calorific values. Should you wish to reduce your CO² emissions then you can also burn a combination of smokeless fuels and logs together. However, if Woodburning only is your preference, you can still achieve good performance but, as logs burn best with slightly different firebox characteristics, we recommend you purchase the optional log tray which replaces the riddling system.
