A stove burns fuel or uses electricity to generate heat, whether that be for cooking or for warmth. The stoves we sell here at Canterbury fires include wood-burning, multi-fuel, gas and electric stoves that keep you toasty and warm.

  • Wood burning stoves: these stoves burn wood logs to produce heat. For a cosy aesthetic and toasty warmth, a wood-burning stove is a good choice.
  • Multifuel stoves: you can burn wood, coal and other smokeless fuels in multifuel stoves. If you plan to have your stove burning a lot, this is a great option and gives you the flexibility to switch between fuels.
  • Gas heating stoves: use gas to create flames that produce heat. This is a mess-free way to have a fire in your home that provides a nice amount of warmth with the switch of a button.
  • Electric heating stoves: provide heat and a flame-like effect using electricity. You won’t need a chimney for an electric stove and have the option to switch on the flames without the heat – perfect for summer evening

A multi-fuel stove can burn wood, coal and smokeless fuel. The main difference between a wood burner and a multi-fuel stove is that wood burners have no ashpan and a fixed grate, whereas multi-fuel stoves have a raised grate system and removable ashpan. This is because wood burns best on a bed of ash, whereas other fuels need airflow for effective burning.

Yes, you can install a woodburning stove (or woodburner) in a fireplace, providing it has a class 1 chimney. If you had an open wood and coal fire previously then you should have a class 1 chimney. However, if you had a gas fire you might have a class 2 chimney, which isn’t suitable for a stove.

A wood-burning stove needs to be installed by a professional. Trying to install one yourself isn’t safe and could result in fire risks, carbon monoxide poisoning and damaging your stove.
Our fitters are Gas Safe and HETAS registered for total peace of mind, so you can enjoy all the benefits of your new stove without the risks.

No, you can’t burn coal in a woodburning stove as coal burns much hotter than wood, which can cause damage to the stove. You can only burn coal in a multifuel stove.

Despite all the rumours, woodburning stoves are not going to be banned. You can still use your old stove, but now all new stoves bought must be clean-burning stoves.

Yes, woodburning stoves are safe. Unlike open fires, a stove keeps the fire and its fumes contained. That doesn’t mean to say they’re without risks and complications. Having your stove installed by a professional, as per building regulations and the manufacturers’ guidelines along with care and maintenance will ensure your safety.

Woodburners aren’t the most environmentally friendly choice for a stove. However, if you live in a rural area with new eco-burners are not too much of a concern.
The latest government data suggests that wood-burning stoves produce 17% of small particle pollution in our air, which given the current air quality crisis, is a problem.
However, despite the fact that burning wood gives off so much carbon dioxide, wood is a carbon-neutral energy source. This means that the amount of CO2 a tree absorbs during its lifetime is balanced by the amount of CO2 released when the wood is burned, so there’s effectively none added to the atmosphere.
Still, if you live in an urban area, there are not likely to be many trees around to absorb the CO2, which increases the air pollution, so you might be better choosing a gas or electric option instead.
