The Future of Wood-Burning - TODAY

The Future of Wood Burning 1The SIA (Stove Industry Alliance) recently used the services of a research company, Kiwa Gastec whose report shows that modern clean burning Ecodesign stoves, including those in the Charlton & Jenrick range, can reduce particulate emissions by up to 90% compared to an open fire, and 80-84% compared to an old stove.

This finding is so important that SIA have begun an “Ecodesign Ready” labelling scheme verified by HETAS to promote stoves meeting the efficiency and emissions regulations early. The scheme is due for official launch in Parliament on 28th February.

This is a very significant milestone for the stove industry and for the environment. The fact is that whilst old stoves might produce a useful amount of heat within the home, they are not combustion efficient, not by a long way, and are not anywhere near as kind on the environment as newly developed high efficiency clean burning stoves. At 15-20% efficiency open fires needlessly remove a huge amount of warm room air up the chimney from their open throat and at the same time don’t give the optimum burning conditions to minimise escape of smoke and unwanted residues into the environment.

The future of wood burning 2Charlton & Jenrick invested in the design and development of the Purevision range of Ecodesign ready stoves as long ago as 2013 to prepare for future tightening of regulations. In doing so new combustion optimisation ideas and techniques were perfected resulting in a patent covering the tertiary air inlet system and several other innovations which were added within the products. The result was three initial fireboxes available in six inset and freestanding formats which all passed the Ecodesign criteria nine years ahead of official introduction of these tough new rules - which consumers and the environment can benefit from right now. The range has since expanded to include classic cast iron clad models plus a slim line and cylindrical model under development. All models have been amongst the very first to be registered with the new SIA Ecodesign Ready scheme as demonstrated on the HETAS appliance listing website. Managing Director Peter Mintoft commented,

“As any stove development engineer will testify, achieving all the Ecodesign criteria simultaneously for log burning fireboxes is a very difficult task indeed. For example the objective of 0.12% average CO or below during 3 consecutive burn cycles is a reduction of 88% from current permitted levels, and every aspect of a firebox from the details of the tertiary air inlets to the air wash and even firebox shape itself has an influence on the burning performance and must therefore be optimised. This is time consuming work taking many hours of thought, design, iteration, samples and hundreds of further hours of testing and modifications to perfect. The results for the environment and the stove user are great news but it is definitely not something to be taken lightly!”

Many other ideas are being worked on continuously to further bolster the Ecodesign compliant range of wood burners offered by Charlton & Jenrick and keep abreast of market developments in the future.

From 2017, the industry’s main manufacturers, including Charlton & Jenrick will ensure that all newly-designed wood burning stove models will meet European environmental standards for particulate emissions, which are not due to be enforced until 2022.

With the advent of BREXIT there has been speculation that the rules might be relaxed but SIA discussions with DEFRA indicate that there is such huge pressure on Government to reduce emissions of all kinds that there is unlikely to be any easing of what will be international agreements on pollutant and particulate release – including Ecodesign for wood burning stoves.

The future of wood burning 3There are significant benefits to using a highly efficient stove, which include:
* You only pay for the wood you burn – no gas bills or standing charges to worry about
* Burning wood in a highly efficient stove is virtually carbon neutral
* It’s a renewable energy source
* They produce a wonderful flame
* Plenty of heat output from modern stoves
* They make a wonderful, welcoming feature in a home

So there is no reason to delay installing a stove – future-proof Ecodesign compliant models are available today!

New Infinity 880FL Rembrandt Suite

New to the Infinity range of suites is the 880FL Rembrandt. The surround is hand crafted from the finest Portuguese limestone with carved details that set it apart from many of the simple designs that have become the standard. At the heart of the suite is the ultra realistic Infinity 880FL conventional flue gas fire. Shown here with the black ceramic firebox liners and a fire basket giving a regency feel to the fireplace.

Introducing the Infinity 780BF

Charlton & Jenrick are very pleased to announce the introduction of the stunning 780BF to the existing Infinity range of fires.

The 780BF has a beautiful and extremely realistic flame picture, which will both compliment and enhance any living space.

With a modest input of 3.4kW, and an impressive output of 2.7kW, the 780BF is both wonderful to look at and economical to Charlton & Jenrickmaintain, with a generous 87% efficiency.

The large ceramic glass viewing area of the Infinity 780BF is the same size as the 780FL, which means the new fire is compatible with the fireplace package designs already available including the Edgemond & Rembrandt suites.

The fire is designed to allow the option to be fitted within a standard 3” rebated surround, which in most cases, will allow for simple installation. For ultimate flexibility the firebox has also been specifically developed to allow the appliances to be fitted into a modern cavity wall with a minimum cavity size of 50mm; which again, in most cases will result in a straightforward fit.

To maintain a more minimalistic look, the flue outlet is at the rear of the unit, ensuring that everything is concealed within the header of the fireplace suite, with flue length options from a minimum of 100mm, to a maximum of 600mm. There is an optional timber frame kit available to allow for safe and easy fitting of the fire into a timber framed house.

The Infinity 780BF incorporates all the features of the existing infinity range including fully featured radio frequency remote control with thermostatic functions for premium user friendly convenience.

 

 

The Infinity 600BF

The 600BF achieves an extremely impressive net efficiency of 90% from an economically modest 2.6kW input. The fire offers a great flame picture and exceptional warmth in the room. The fire can be fitted into the wall and trimmed with the same choices available with the conventional flue version. The 600BF also has an optional frame available which allows for the fire to be fitted into the wall ‘frameless’ or into a fireplace as part of a suite.

Charton & Jenrick 600BFThe fire comes with a choice of three firebox liners; Beige Ribbed, Rustic Brick or Black Ribbed. For ultimate flexibility the firebox has also been specifically developed to allow the appliances to be fitted into a modern cavity wall with a minimum cavity size of 50mm; which again, in most cases will result in a straightforward fit. To maintain a more minimalistic look, the flue outlet is at the rear of the unit, ensuring that everything is concealed within the header of the fireplace suite, with flue length options from a minimum of 100mm, to a maximum of 600mm.

The Infinity 480BF

The size of the 480BF means that it will fit into the majority of fireplace designs available for sale in the UK and offers improved aesthetics over traditional 16” inch fires. The 480BF achieves an extremely impressive net efficiency of 86% from an economically modest 2.6kW input. The fire offers a great flame picture and exceptional warmth in the room. The ceramic glass viewing area of the Infinity 480BF is the same size as the 480FL, which means the new fire is compatible with the Infinity fireplace package designs already available, including the ever popular Beckford & Stokesay suites.
