Island Pellet Stoves Lundy 5kW (pellet stove/optional balanced flue)

Model
10 items left

The Lundy 5 burns wood pellets, rather than logs, with the pellets being poured into the top of the stove, which releases pellets as required. Refill is between one and three days on average depending on stove use (typically one refill will last three evenings). The stove is self-lighting using remote control or digital panel and can even be set to turn on at a certain time. No paper, no kindling, no mess. Because the stove door is not opened to refuel there is no chance at all of emissions entering the room. Pellets are easy to purchase, easy to store, clean-burning and efficient. The Lundy 5 and its partner the Lundy 8 boiler stove are the first pellet stoves to combine modern pellet technology with stunning wood-burner aesthetics.

Staff review of the Lundy 5

We now have the Lundy 5 heating our office and Arran is thrilled. "What, I can go a whole day without having to refuel it?" he asked. "Just tip pellets in and it that's it?". When he found out he can even have it on a timer he was ecstatic. "It comes on at 7am and by the time I arrive at 8 the place will be toasty warm - how cool is that!". The Lundy 5 is quite a large stove and will not fit the smaller recess but for larger recesses and as a freestanding option it surely must be a consideration. It is more expensive than most traditional wood burners but if freestanding with a balanced flue there will be quite a saving on flue costs. I hope to do a full and detailed review soon... Julian Patrick, Managing Director.

"The big advantages of pellet stoves are clean-burning, easy fuel storage, the long time between refuels, automatic lighting and the fact that they don't even need a tall chimney. This is seriously tempting."

Description

About the Lundy 5 Wood Pellet Burning Stove

Here at Stovefitter's we are extremely proud to be appointed UK sole retailer for Island Pellet Stoves. We believe that the time is right for pellet stoves "with the aesthetics of the modern wood burning stove". No mess, no lighting, can go up to three days without loading with pellets, pellets easy to store, low emissions, no chance of emissions into room when refuelling and often do not even need anything other than a short run of flue pipe to outside!
 
The Lundy 5 is designed and manufactured in the UK by the company's founders who, way back in the mid 1990's, realised "there is not a pellet stove on the market that could replace the roaring log stove that sat in our living rooms". So they decided to do something about that and, seven years later, the Lundy 5 and 8 entered production in South Wales.
 
"We didn’t only meet our brief but completely exceeded it with high efficiency, low emissions, robustness …. and an award: "Best pellet stove" at the Hearth and Home Show in the UK.

Balanced Flue Option

Installation

These stoves can be installed by Island Pellet Stoves own team of experienced installers who travel the UK (Island Pellet Stoves have larger connected-businesses specialising in the installation of larger biomass boilers so have plenty of expertise and experience).

Island Pellet Stoves can be connected to an existing chimney, a clip-together twin-wall system or a balanced flue. If the stove is standing outside of a fireplace recess (freestanding) then the balanced flue will usually be the best choice.

VAT

It is possible to obtain a 15% discount on our stated prices by having the "supply, install and commission" completed by Island Pellet Stoves. We can arrange this. In this case a small deposit would be paid to Stovefitter's and the project balance would be paid to Island Pellet Stoves.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood pellet burning stove.
Nominal 5kW.

This stove will run happily at 5kW no matter the fuel load.

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

82% (as a rough guide 82% of heat goes to the room with 18% 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".

Air vent advice here


Body & Door

Steel stove (5-year body guarantee)

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).

If in a fireplace recess, a full 125mm thickness constructional hearth is required. This will usually be in place as part of the recess design.

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.

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.
