Stûv 16-fireplace the perfect solution for wood
burning, whether it’s your main source of heat, an
added extra or a decorative feature.
- An intelligent combustion system transforms wood into heat: the Stûv 16 fireplace recovers nearly all the heat contained in the burning gases, improving performance.
- This heat quickly warms up the room by radiation and convection.
- Convection transfers the warmth by heating up and circulating the air; radiation transfers the heat by radiating it from the hot surfaces of the device to its immediate surroundings. The higher the temperature of the walls, the more heat the surface will produce.
- The high temperature of the combustion chamber burns harmful particles and so reduces pollution.
Rated output from 8 to 10kW.

We say that the chimney “draws”. The chimney in fact literally sucks up the gases produced by the stove. However, the gases and the heat that they contain must not be allowed to escape too easily up the chimney. Two devices stop this from happening :
Thanks to these bottlenecks, the heat rises within the stove, which is necessary for complete combustion to take place (greater efficiency and lower emissions).
