A wood heater is a heating appliance that is capable of burning wood fuel indoors. 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 fireplace. A traditional fireplace will provide little heat to the house and is the least efficient method in heating your entire home. The wood heater loses 80-90% off the heat as it is directed up in the chimney. 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.
With different types of Kent Freestanding wood heaters to complement your home with, to our modern sleek design that is perfect for heating small to large sized spaces to a more rustic and traditional design, our Kent wood heaters are designed to be more efficient than ever.

Our Kent Freestanding wood heaters are available in a range of different sizes with varying levels of heat, to fit any space within the modern family home. Designed with an air cavity between the firebox and the outer skin. This means that the air in the cavity heats up, expands and rises, drawing more air in from below and forcing the hot air out through the top of the heater. The firebox is lined with firebricks and made from a special grade of 6mm thick steel which maintains a thermal efficiency. It will provide a well-distributed warmth to the room and is ideal for well-insulated homes with standard height ceilings. Our Kent wood heaters are built to last; the large firebox is lined with SKAMOLEX™ technology and doesn’t require any firebrick lining, which helps increase efficiencies and decrease emissions. With a burn time of up to 8.5 hours, our Kent wood heaters are fitted with a 3-speed fan control for optimum heat control to help circulate heat which will keep your family warm during those cold Winter nights.

Therefore, this efficient and environmentally friendly wood heater is one of the cleanest burning heaters on the market.
