Masonry heaters and stoves are known for their heat retention, slow heat distribution and capturing the heat from the flue gases, resulting in a highly efficient burner. Ecco Stoves are a brand of eco-friendly stoves that combine masonry heating and wood burning technologies to heat a home.
How do Ecco Stoves Work?
Ecco Stoves are the best of both worlds as they take all the benefits from wood burning stoves and masonry heating and combine them into one super-efficient heating stove. Masonry heating is made from Silicon Carbide to slowly release heat and Ecco Stoves utilise the natural heat produced from the Silicon Carbide, in addition to wood burning technology to heat a room. What makes them better than a traditional metal stove is that they can heat a whole home without overheating the initial room.
By combining Silicon Carbide, heat retention and a lower surface temperate, Ecco Stoves will gently drive heat from room to room, with as little as 1-1.5oC temperature difference in each room.
What Makes Ecco Stoves Efficient?
If you want an efficient heating system, then Ecco Stoves provide the best energy efficient stoves on the market. With just 1.5 hours of burning a day, you can get 24 hours of heating for your whole home!
These Ecco Stoves can heat an entire room using little energy to do so and they achieve this through:
Unlike wood burning stoves, Ecco Stove masonry heaters are heavy, weighing between a whopping 270kg-800kg. The Ecco Stoves use this large mass to operate as a thermal mass heater like a traditional storage heater. This ensures that high combustion temperatures can be reached, in addition to the large mass being used to insulate the body of the stove. With these features combined, the Ecco Stove can retain heat for up to 12 hours after the fire has gone out.
Ecco Stoves are fantastic at utilising the heat sources around them. Built on either a tri baffle or contraflow gas channel, the Ecco Stove will capture as much heat as possible from the gases in the flue before they reach the atmosphere. The temperature within a traditional stove flue can be anywhere from 350oC-450oC, whereas, the flue temperature within an Ecco Masonry Stove will be around 110oC as the heat energy is efficiently used.
Most wood burning stoves are more economically friendly than your traditional heating system, however, if you want to take the biggest step towards eco heating, then Ecco Stoves will help you get there.
Wood burning stoves are already eco-friendly as you’re using a renewable source of energy to heat your room. Ecco Stoves create warmth by using the heat from the wood and the heat from the gases produced in the flue; they can heat your entire home if you leave the connecting doors open. This means that you can get all the heating you need from one single renewable resource point; therefore, you will never have to use your fossil fuel powered radiators again, heavily reducing your carbon footprint and your energy bills.
ECO Design 2022 Compliant Stoves
With the fumes from wood burners becoming a worry, there are now strict guidelines in place to reduce air pollution. DEFRA, Stove Industry Alliance and HETAS have created the ECO Design 2022 act. This act means that all stoves manufactured from the 1st January 2022, must adhere to strict regulations that ensures stoves will have reduced particle emissions, lower carbon monoxide emissions and have improved efficiency levels. The Ecco Stoves were created before this act was announced and they already pass ahead of the changes being made in the Eco Design 2022. With up to 93% efficiency, you can use a clean and renewable source of energy to heat your home.
