What size of fire?
To achieve a relaxing room temperature of
around 21ºC when the external air temperature is at freezing (0ºC)
you will need approximately 1kW of heat output for every 14 cubic
meters of space.
Measure the length, width and height of your
room and multiply the three figures together.
For example, a room measuring 7m long by 4m
wide and with a height of 2.5m is 70 cu. m. of space. Divide by the
sum by 14 and this means you will require a 5kW stove.
However, factors such as the number of outside walls, the size
of windows and whether they are double glazed, the age of the
home etc, can all influence the heat requirement.
We would always recommend you consult your local Gazco
retailer for expert advice before making your decision.
