Multi Fuel Wood Burning Stoves

Updated on September 24, 2013

Multi Fuel Stoves

Multi fuel wood burning stoves are stoves that resemble the look of a natural wood burning fireplace. The stoves include a grate; convenient for burning fires, and an ash pan that can be easily removed. These stoves are branded as multi fuel because they are capable of burning coal, peat, wood, and wood pellets.

The great advantage to owning a multi fuel stove, is that is can be used to heat an area or to cook on, and it can be used as a double boiler. Most multi fuel stoves are very cost efficient for the home, and can save consumers each month on their power bills.

DEFRA Approved

Multi fuel wood burning stoves provide customers the opportunity of using different types of fuel as long as the stoves are DEFRA ( Department for Environment,Food and Rural Affairs) approved in the UK or EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified in the US. Some of the stoves are pre-programmed to use different types of fuel, and are equipped with buttons for auto starting of the stove.

Burning Pellets

For the people that use pellets in the stove, they will find that the pellets are a better type of energy source to use, creating less harmful emissions and proving a more appropriate and economical way to use a multi fuel stove than to burn wood.
