Wood Burning Stoves & Multi-fuel Stoves
All Yeoman stoves are designed to burn wood and smokeless fuels and have been independently tested to exacting standards for both heating efficiency and emissions. The Exmoor, Exe, Devon, CL3 and CL5 models are also approved for the burning of wood in Smoke Control areas when fitted with a smoke control kit.
Wood Burning Stoves
Wood is the better fuel in environmental terms being carbon neutral, as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods.
Anthracite and manufactured smokeless fuels can be burnt with the addition of a multi-fuel kit. Choose from either the economic Static Kit on the County and Double-Sided models or, for optimum performance, the external Riddling Kit on Exmoor, Exe, Devon and CL stoves, including high output boiler stoves. Please note, however, that petroleum based fuels must never be used on your stove.
