Where does a masonry stove go?

Gondwana Green Heat has installed masonry stoves in many rural homes across Britain, in Georgian town houses in Edinburgh, and in stunning villas in sea side Gullane and North Berwick. We believe they are suitable for many other types of home and businesses too.

Masonry stoves are normally installed on the ground floor, and ideally they will be centrally located to allow heat to permeate throughout the ground floor before escaping to the next level. A well designed and located masonry heater will heat a whole property, and it is also possible to add a baking oven and back boiler into a masonry stove. You can therefore heat a thermal store for radiators or underfloor heating and DHW – see Gondwana Green Heat’s hot water storage pages for more details.

Due to their weight – typically between 500kg and 5,000kg – a solid base is essential for any masonry heater. This usually means installing foundations or bases for the heaters to sit on, and that can limit where in the home it is feasible to build a masonry stove.

Do I need a chimney for a masonry stove?

On the other hand, you don’t necessarily need a traditional chimney already in place in your home, as Gondwana sells and designs a range of chimney products suitable for our wood-fuelled heating systems, and these can be installed at the same time as the stove.

Some of the stoves supplied by Gondwana Green Heat, such as the British made Ecco Stoves, are Defra approved and can be legally installed and used in UK smoke control areas.

Before looking a the masonry stove them selves it’s important to have a chat about your home, and where the heater could go.

Tigchelaar Dutch Tile Stoves & Masonry Heaters

I have had a love affair with Tigchelaar tile stoves ever since a spell living and working in southern Holland. Our home had a pink Tigchelaar tile stove and she was a cracker. She heated the whole property with only 2 burns per day.
