If you answered ‘yes’ to the above question, Rigby Fires supplies and installs an extensive range of multi-fuel stoves designed to burn more than one type of fuel. Sometimes referred to as mineral-fuel stoves, multi-fuel designs have the ability to burn wood, smokeless fuel and coal. Naturally, these fuels require different conditions for an optimal burn, so multi-fuel stoves come with additional features, such as raise grates with moving bars, which you won’t find on standard log burners. Whether in our hometown of Pinner, neighbouring areas such as Ealing and Watford, or any other location in London or the home counties, Rigby Fires provides the ideal heating solution for any requirement.
We stock multi-fuel stoves from market-leading manufacturers, including:
As with our log burners, electric fires, gas fires and wider range of products, Rigby Fires only supplies and installs superior multi-fuel stoves that we know and trust for quality and performance.
If you would like to discuss options for the installation of your own multi-fuel stove in Pinner, Ealing, Watford or the neighbouring areas, please call us on 0208 868 7899.
While log burners have a relatively simple process to understand, multi-fuel stoves often need slightly more explanation. Perhaps of most importance to homeowners considering their options, multi-fuel stoves and log burners have no discernible difference in heat output. Most modern stoves provide an efficiency between 70% and 80%, considerably higher than an open fireplace. The biggest factor when it comes to optimising heat output remains choosing the correct stove size for the room you plan to heat.
As the name suggests, multi-fuel stoves come specially designed to handle the differing requirements of burning multiple fuels. For example, wood burns best when sat on a bed of ash with air circulating from the top. The bed of ash, called a firebox, plays an integral role as it is where the fuel burns. Conversely, coal needs a supply of air from below in order to burn efficiently.
In order to manage these conflicting conditions, multi-fuel stoves have a central riddling grate and ashpan or a raised grate with moving bars. Both designs increase airflow and allow the burning fuel to be de-ashed, thus maintaining effective combustion conditions.
As with the fitting of our log burners, we conduct a site survey to ensure a safe installation process for multi-fuel stoves. This also includes checking whether your property in Pinner, Ealing, Watford or the surrounding areas lies within a smoke control area. With decades of experience and Defra-approved stoves, Rigby Fires guarantees a compliant installation.
