Build quality that lasts
Like all AGA products, our range of stoves is manufactured to an exceptionally high standard. That's why they carry the CE mark - as they fulfil all necessary European health, safety and environmental protection legislation - and are HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approvals Scheme) listed. For further peace of mind, every AGA stove comes with a five-year parts and one-year labour warranty.
Stove or open fire?
An open fire will warm the room, but it has many drawbacks that a stove doesn't. For example, the majority of heat produced by an open fire - up to 85% - will escape through the chimney. Using a stove, heat remains in the room due to the warm air that's continuously circulating around it.
A stove is also much more efficient at circulating heat through large rooms and the warmth can even rise up stairwells to landings. This means you won't have to rely as much on other heating systems within your home, which could in turn reduce your energy bills
Information on wood fuels
Unlike fossil fuels, such as coal, gas or oil, wood is carbon neutral. This means that burning a log of wood only produces as much carbon dioxide as a log decomposing on the forest floor. If used in the right circumstances wood can be a highly economical choice, too.
Dry seasoned wood contains up to 90% less moisture than fresh cut wood, which means it produces less steam and saves up to 50% of potential heat.
Also keep in mind that hard wood is a better option than soft wood as it is slower to burn, meaning you will use less.
Wood is a renewable fuel source that is gentler on the environment. It also helps the preservation of fossil fuels such as coal and oil.
Hints and tips
- For the best drying conditions, store your logs in a dry store allowing plenty of air to flow around them
- Wood burns best on a bed of ash so make sure your firebox always has some ash in it
- Pick out the driest logs; they're easy to spot as the bark comes away easily
