Here are Dublin Plumber tips on the factors you need to ask the following questions before you buy a stove:
  • Do you want to burn wood only ?
  • Do you want to burn coal only ?
  • Are you want multi-fuel, burn both coal and wood ?

Sort out the minimum heat requirement for your room.

Measure your room and calculate the optimum kW heat output and size of the perfect stove. If the stove is too big, it can become a safety hazard if you burn low-heat, smoldering fires. On the other hand, if it is too small, it will not warm the room enough.

Decide between inset or free-standing stoves.

Some say inset stoves supply less heat in your room because of heat loss through the chimney. However, if your room is big enough for a free-standing stove, your existing chimney can be enlarged to have the stove set back into it. The only downside is, if you have small children and animals, you need to have a one-meter pet- and kid-free zone around all heating devices.

Finish around the stove

This is crucial because ordinary plaster will crack and fall off from the heat. It is important to remember that you cannot have flammable materials such as wood. Instead, you can use either tiles or vermiculite boards which can be painted and achieve a plastered finish.

Consider lining your chimney

Depends on how old your house is, your chimney needs to be lined. This can be expensive for you though.
 
In general, buy the best you can afford. You will see a stove for €250 and one for €2500 that look very much the same. But to be honest, they are not the same.
 
The difference will be in the performance and efficiency of the stove and also the wearing of the parts such as seals around the door and etc
 
Overnight burn is also a nice feature to consider because not all stoves are recommended for overnight burning. Of course, it’s always nice to wake up on a winters morning with the stove still lighting.
