Buy a DG!

Absolutely fantastic! The team at Stovefitters were very prompt in fulfilling my preorder when someone else cancelled.Delivery was on time by a very helpful, friendly chapTheir website was really helpful in supplying names of local fitters especially as we are new to the county.
We had a clear view in previous cottage thought it was very good but the DG is very much worth spending the extra and better than Clearview. House very toasty!

Great service

Just writing today how pleased we were with the delivery of our Dik Geurts wood burning stove. Everything went like clockwork and the delivery driver was helpful and courteous.
Sadly, because of Covid, we haven’t been able to fit the stove yet as our local HETAS registered sweep can’t work at present but the stove looks great and we’re looking forward to warmer evenings ahead!

Stovefitters' opinion

Julian's Thoughts

I have the 5kW version of this stove and consider the Ivar to be the finest stove I have ever used.

DG Ivar 5 review by Stovefitter's

Note from Julian

Note from Julian: Because I sing their praises I get asked if I have any affiliation with DG. I do not. I spotted their stoves in 2014 at the Hearth and Home Show, Harrogate, and have been a dealer ever since. I have no relationship with DG aside from retailing their stoves and get no preferential treatment or trade discounts.

Description

About the DG Ivar 8

DG Ivar 8  black closeup

Very large glass, huge firebox, highest quality and easily outsmarting many other stoves in the £1k-£1.5k market. Single control. As of the time of writing The DG Ivar is the most controllable stove we have tested and possibly the finest stove on the market today.

Julian, owner of Stovefitter's and author of The Stovefitter's Manual, has an Ivar stove (as do both of his neighbours and the owner's of the local village pub who have two!)

Read more about the Ivar's level of control and why it is important on the page for the slightly smaller Ivar 5.

The Ivar 5 and 8 were designed in 2014 and launched at the Hearth and Home exhibition in Harrogate. They were an instant success for the Dutch company DG (Dik Guerts).

We particularly like the "one control does all" and the removeable door handle. If anything the Ivar 8 is even more aesthetically pleasing than the 5, having more of a landscape aspect. Read more about this stove on the Ivar 5 product page.

Log store

Log storage and a taller stove combined? Choose the "Ivar 8 Log Store" version of this stove. This stove can, if the stove is outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a hearth with a thickness of just 12mm.

Output

The Ivar 8 is just a little larger than the Ivar 5. Maximum output we reckon to be around 9.34kW as opposed to the Ivar 5's 7.75kW.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood only (multifuel with kit).
Nominal 8kW. Max. 9.34kW

This stove will run happily at 3kW - 9.34kW 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

77% (as a rough guide 77% of heat goes to the room with 23% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and90%+ 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".

Air vent advice here


Body & Door

Steel stove (5-year body guarantee) with cast-iron 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 125mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

The Ivar 8 Log Store version can, if outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth. Note that the standard leg Ivar 8 must have a full 125mm thickness hearth in all situations.
