The power of a stove is expressed in kW and indicates the amount of useful heat (i.e. heat which actually heats the house) that this stove can produce.

This heat must effectively compensate, as closely as possible, for the heat that the building naturally loses. The power required to heat a room varies depending on outside temperature, the size of the room, which way the property faces, geographical location and the standard of insulation in the building.

A stove that is too small will not be able to heat up (or reheat) the room in cold weather. Alternatively, a stove that is too powerful will often work at a low rate in conditions that are not very beneficial. Sometimes it will overheat the room even at a lower rate. Choosing a 20 kW stove where a 10 kW model would be sufficient would be a very bad decision.

These various factors mean it is not easy to carry out a simple calculation. You can get an idea from our output calculator however we can discuss this with you in more detail at our site visit.
