Arada Farringdon Medium 8kW+ Ecodesign Ready Multi Fuel / Wood Burning Stove

This is the second wood-burner I've fitted in my property (both with Building Regs Building notice), the first being a 5KW Morso Squirrel utilising a 125mm twin-wall flue. Just prior to fitting the Arada I discovered a large amount of metal shot rattling around inside the stove. (estimated @ 20 - 30g?)
I vacuumed most of it out but on testing the air valves I discovered some of the shot had got inside the secondary air valve causing it to stick and feel very notchy. I had to dismantle the air valve located under the stove and clean the shot out. (I'm just glad I realised I had a problem before I completed the final fit and not after!)
When first firing the stove up I found a lot of smoke spilling out of the stove when opening the door (quite unlike my squirrel, which is very forgiving) and at first I thought I'd bought a pup, The secret is to 'Jenga' your kindling in about 4-5 layers, small log on top with 2-3 firelighters under and not open the door until the stove is up to temperature. Once I'd mastered the lighting I'm now very pleased with our purchase and would thoroughly recommend this stove. The stove seems really well engineered, is finished well and is very heavy. (112kg)
Note: I spoke to Julian about the shot issue and he told me he would speak to the manufacturer and advise them of this quality issue to ensure it is not repeated in the future. C.Johnston 27/01/19

Arada Farringdon Medium stove

This stove looks extremely well made, very robust yet elegant and contemporary in design, with a large single glass front pane to enhance its appearance. It was purchased at an very competitive price and although the stove has yet to be installed, if it works as good as it looks I suspect I will be very pleased with the end product.

Description

About the Arada Farringdon Small

In 2022 all solid fuel stoves will have to pass stringent new regulations aimed at ensuring that a stove design meets strict European environmental standards known as Ecodesign. The part of the Ecodesign legislation we are interested in is called Lot 20. Stoves that pass the tough new tests will be labelled EcoDesign ready and will be overseen by HETAS and supported by DEFRA.

This is Arada's first design to meet those standards - a state of the art stove launched almost five years ahead of the deadline. Well done Arada. If you are installing a Farringdon stove then you know that you will be using a stove with the absolute highest possible green credentials.

Arada stoves also have a lifetime guarantee.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Multifuel
Nominal 5kW. Max. 5kW

This stove will run happily up at 5kW depending on fuel load. Note that running the stove at a higher fuel level than that specified in the manufacturer's manual may cause degradation of stove innards (firebricks, baffle etc.) although these are replaceable (and repairable with beige fire cement).

Eco Credentials

This stove meets and exceeds the new 2022 Ecodesign regulations

This stove is approved by DEFRA to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area


Efficiency

78.3% (as a rough guide 78.3% of heat goes to the room with 21.7% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and 90%+ efficiency may not work so well on shorter or difficult chimneys.


External Air

Yes, this stove can be fitted with an external air kit (draws air from outside via pipe direct to stove). Usually this option is not relevant unless a room air-vent is required and the property is airtight (by design or choice).

See "Customers Also Bought".

Body & Door

Steel stove (Lifetime body guarantee) with steel door

What to buy steel or cast-iron? Do not overthink. Steel heats fast. Cast-iron takes a little longer but retains heat longer as fire dies.


Hearth

Hearth thickness: minimum 12mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

Delivery Promise

We offer 14 days from delivery to report any courier damage to your stove. If a stove is damaged by the courier we will replace or refund as desired.

Guarantee

Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer offers a lifetime body guarantee

Glass

Why do we sell glass insurance (pre-ticked box close to ADD TO CART button)? Because glass is classed, in the stoves industry, as a consumable item and not covered under ANY guarantee by any manufacture for any reason whatsoever. If it breaks or cracks on day one or day twenty it is not covered. If the inside of the glass goes cloudy or gets any kind of surface coating or etching then it is not covered (it will be to do with what you are burning according to manufacturers and glass makers). Glass usually costs £30-£60 plus postage but can be more on higher end models.

Performance

Defra-approved or/and Ecodesign stoves are designed and thoroughly tested before being allowed onto the market and every stove sold is identical. In the rare event a stove does not perform as well as expected it is always down to the installation, the chimney or circumstances unique to the property (pressure imbalances caused by local conditions, down drafts etc.). Here at Stovefitter's we have taken stoves back on a number of occasions for testing on our chimney and in every situation the stoves performed as expected (we may of course find a faulty stove one day but never as yet). We may, at our discretion, take a stove back once it has been used and in this situation a 50% refund would be provided (stove would be sold as second hand). We would, however, offer a 33% refund on a replacement stove.

£ PRICE MATCH £

We will happily strive to match any price you may have from any other supplier as long as the other supplier has it in stock.
Offered an "ex-display" or "shop soiled"? We will strive to offer you a new stove for the same price.

Already have a chimney? You need 1. Stove 2. Liner 3. Fitting Pack 4. Chimney closure plate (Hardiebacker board from Builder's merchants or galvanised sheet).That's it!
No chimney? Check out our shed kits or let us design your clip-together chimney design - easy peasy.
