One of the reasons why wood heaters have become so popular is because it is an efficient and reliable source of heat. Wood heaters produce radiant heat which heats up an area faster and more efficiently than a traditional wood heater with only about 5-10% of the energy being used towards heating up the room with most of the heat going up the flue instead. Home heaters are the more efficient option when it comes to burning wood to produce heat, as the user has more control of the amount of oxygen the fire is exposed to and the amount of wood inserted. Another type of wood heater commonly used is convection heaters which emit heat through panels and fans, providing a well-distributed warmth to the room, or an entire house.
Wood heaters operate by controlling the amount of wood and air supply to the fire. It distributes heat by radiating it out from the metal box and flue or by convection heat through hot air released from the vents. Wood heaters are super-efficient as they convert between 55-70% of the energy used into household heat and emits enough heat to warm up large areas for extended periods of time.
There are many different types of wood heaters at Kent that includes Freestanding wood heaters, Inbuilt wood heaters and Insert wood heaters where you’ll easily find a Kent wood heater that’s the perfect choice for you.
Freestanding convection wood heaters are designed with air cavities around the outside of the firebox and then a decorative outer casting. Inside is a convection chamber that allows the air space to constantly circulate the air, as warm air rises it is displaced by cooler air, which then warms up from the stove and rises up to follow. Through this cycle, the hottest air is pushed to the ceiling, and the warm air remaining in the lower part of the room. Convection heaters provide a well-distributed warmth to the room and are ideal for well- insulated homes with standard height ceilings.
Inbuilt wood heaters are designed to be built into a heat-sensitive structure within a building or home. It is a modern energy-efficient alternative to an open brick wood heater. If your home has an existing brick wood heater, you can upgrade with an inbuilt insert heater.
Insert wood heaters allows you to transform any blank wall with minimal structural impact to your home. This option gives the flexibility of placing the home heater in the room of your choice. It is a great alternative when you don’t have an existing brick wood heater.
