order number 13212 Great little fire

A great compact defra approved fire for the price. This model is easy to install and set up and is very easy to explain the operation procedure to customers. Have fitted several of these fires now and the customers have always been happy with the fires preformance. As far as value for money is concerned you will struggle to find a defra approved stove of this quality at such a low price. Order number 13212

Stove, liner and fitting pack

I decided to ring the Stove Fitters Warehouse, rather than order over the internet, I found the voice at the end of the phone helpful and knowledgeable . I got talked through what I needed and how it was to be delivered. The liner arrived first with the stove the day after. The delivery driver helpfully dropped the stove off at the back of the house. My installer confirmed everything was there and the installation went smoothly apart from the fact I needed a different double bend pipe to connect to the liner. The installed was impressed that even a stainless drill was included to enable him to drill into a fitting. Installation took about 4 hours as he was on his own happy with the product and the look of the fire

Julian's Thoughts

Cannot go wrong. Installers love this stove as they consider it "fit and forget"

Spend just a little more? An alternative to the Arundel would be the Firewire 400, Hamlet Solution 5 SC or Saltfire Peanut 5

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Multifuel (wood, coal & smokeless fuel)
Nominal 5kW
Max. 5.16kW

This stove will run happily at 2-5kW 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).

What size stove do I need?


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

No, this stove cannot 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).

Air vent advice here


Body & Door

Steel stove (5-year 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 125mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

To non-combustibles there are no hard rules but, around the stove, a 50mm minimum air gap is recommended to brick/stone. This to be increased to 100mm for rendered or boarded surfaces. Prior to purchasing any stove download the installation manual to check that manufacturers do not have any additional requirements.

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 5 year 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.
