A stove is selected to meet the requirements of the customers need to heat their living space. Once a decision is made to install a stove the next step is to calculate th esize of the stove required.

It is recommended that to heat 14 cubic meters you will require 1kw of heat, therefore a simple calculation will give you an indication of the stove output required.


A room 5m x 4m x 2.44m (48.8 cubic meters) /14 will require a 3.5kw stove.

This calculation is based on the room being extremely well insulated, should your room be less well insulated, or have large windows or doors, then you can reduce the figure you divide by accordingly. If your room is cold or draughty, then recalculate by /10 to estimate your heat requirement.


A room 5m x 4m x 2.44m (48.8 cubic meters) /10 will require a 5kw stove.

It is the user's preference to decide theamount of heat they require from their stove. However it is better to err by over estimating as the heat can be controlled from the stove and reduced when necessary.
