Brighton (/ˈbraɪtən/) is a seaside resort on the south coast of England that is part of the City of Brighton and Hove, located 47 miles (76 km) south of London.
Archaeological evidence of settlement in the area dates back to the Bronze Age, Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. The ancient settlement of “Brighthelmstone” was documented in the Domesday Book (1086). The town’s importance grew in the Middle Ages as the Old Town developed, but it languished in the early modern period, affected by foreign attacks, storms, a suffering economy and a declining population. Brighton began to attract more visitors following improved road transport to London and becoming a boarding point for boats travelling to France. The town also developed in popularity as a health resort for sea bathing as a purported cure for illnesses.
In the following article we will give you a list of 10 important things to look out for when buying a new wood burning stove. They are not listed in order of importance.
Stove efficiency is a good indicator of the overall design and build quality of the stove. Although efficiency is calculated under laboratory conditions and hard to replicate, Each stove is tested the same so its a good measure to compare products. You will notice that our range of wood burning stoves are around 83% efficient. This is a good result!
Stove Size and Output
The output required to heat your space can be calculated by taking the cubic meter of space in the room and dividing by 15. We have made it easy for you by including a calculator below. --------------- When selecting the size of stove you require you need to take into account the size of the fireplace and the hearth. Most stoves require 300mm of hearth in front of the firebox, as well as some clearance behind the unit to the wall. On either side and above there will also be necessary distances. The benefit of Vesta is that we can make a stove to fit your fireplace and style.
This relates to the material the stove is made out of. Most stoves on the market these days are made from steel with cast iron doors. This is because steel is more durable under thermal stress than cast iron. However, Lots of imported stoves are made from cast iron so beware. Steel are normally a little more expensive but they last a lifetime,

Flue size and specification
Do you need a flue line? If so then what size liner can you fit? an important questions as some chimneys will only take a 5" liner and this isn't suitable for a lot of stoves. The position of the flue is also a factor to take into account. When the stove is sat in the fireplace with the correct spacing around it the flue needs to line up or unsightly elbows will be required to offset the flue.
Stove prices range from £150 to many thousands of pounds. It has to be said that in general you get what you pay for.

During the lifetime of your stove you will undoubtedly need to change parts such as the baffles, bricks, glass and rope seals. Ensure before you commit that a full range of spares is available and rapidly available.

Decide on the fuel type before you buy a stove. Wood burning stoves burn logs very well but wont burn other solid fuels like coal. Multi fuel stoves do a great job at burning solid fuel but not too good at burning logs. Most of all please support your local British business. When you buy your fuel please make sure you buy local sustainable logs .
