Now that autumn/winter is almost upon us, it’s the perfect time to consider upgrading or introducing a wood burning stove into your home. Suitable for city living, modern new-builds, period properties and country dwellings alike, a wood burner offers instant cosy comfort, heating living rooms, dining areas, open-plan kitchens and more thanks to its powerful heat output and mesmerising flames within.
For homeowners who prefer a sleek, contemporary look rather than a traditional stove design, the Westfire Uniq 37 from Eurostove combines style with substance. The cylindrical shape comes with side glass panels for a spectacular all-round view of the fire inside while the metallic anthracite finish is bang on trend. What’s more, thanks to the new ‘double’ flue, installation is easier as the stove now only requires one air-access rather than two. Previously the Uniq 37 needed an air inlet through a wall or from beneath the floor, along with an outlet through the roof. Now, with the new double flue version, the stove no longer has to have that wall inlet, as the incoming air flows down the outside of the flue in a secondary pipe. This enables the stove to be installed anywhere with access to the roof, giving flexibility and versatility to your heating and design scheme. And because the inlet pipe is much less complicated, the stove performs better too. Additional advantages include a cooler outer edge of the flue for extra safety while the incoming air is warmed before it reaches the fire – perfect for when it’s really chilly outside.
Design-wise, choose from four leg styles - standard, two pedestal models that raise the stove for a clear view of the fire at 180˚ and a large option for added impact. There is also a wall-hung version.
Westfire’s Uniq 37 is also Ecodesign Ready. Ecodesign is a European-wide programme to lower emissions, which comes into force in the UK in 2022. Setting the standard for environmentally friendly stoves, the scheme is supported by DEFRA and overseen by HETAS, who will independently verify that the stoves pass the required criteria and tests.
Part of the Eurostove collection, Westfire specialises in modern wood burning stoves made from quality materials using highly skilled craftsmanship.
