What Size Of Stove Do I Need
The size of the stove is normally the first thing to consider when buying a stove. The size of the stove is normally rated by kilowatt output (kW) or in BTU’s, which enables us to understand the amount of heat the stove produces per hour.
1kW = 3400 BTU’s
To find out which size stove you need for your home, first estimate the size of the room, or have it measured. Also determine the quality of insulation of your home e.g. older properties will often have poorer insulation than newer properties.
For every 1kW heat output it will approximately heat:
14m3 – Average insulated area.
