Maximise the heat with your Contura. The heat tank and hot air damper offer excellent solutions that give more heat for longer. For example, the cooling period is up to 18 hours for Contura 26T with extra heat tank.
Several models in the Contura series are available with a heat tank made of heat retaining powerstone. The tank is located under the cover above the firebox of the stove. The excellent heat retaining properties of the stone give up to four hours longer heat retention. On some models, there is an adjustable damper that regulates the amount of heated air from the stove out into the room. A closed damper gives a long cooling period, an open damper spreads the hot air in the room quickly.
The adjustable damper enables you to regulate the amount of heated air from the stove. A closed damper gives a long cooling down period. An open damper distributes the heat more quickly, which is good when you want to heat a room up quickly.
Powerstone is a stone with excellent heat retention properties. It provides heat long after the fire has gone out. The tank is often located under the cover above the firebox of the stove.
At Contura we test the function and output of the stoves very thoroughly. We do this so that you know what you are getting when you choose a Contura. Below you can see the cooling times for a selection of our models. To show the differences, we tested the stoves with and without the powerstone heat tank and with and without a natural, heat-retaining, soapstone casing.
