Think about where you want to place the stove. Bring out your House Blueprint and layout to get a quick overview of the house. As wood burning stoves can get very hot there is a minimum safe distance for combustible materials for each side of the stove. Placing materials any closer than this distance can result in a fire.
Wood stoves create smoke. You'll need to install a chimney so the smoke can leave your house. Either you'll need a masonry chimney or a steel chimney. It's best to have a straight, vertical chimney - the fewer bends in the chimney the better.
After installing your wood stove it is extremely important that it is inspected by an authorised chimney sweep before the first use to ensure it is safe to use. We also include lighting instructions for the first time you use your stove.

10 – for very draughty rooms or those with at least 2 single pane windows and/or doors, or poor insulation
15 – for reasonably insulated rooms and double-glazed windows and doors
20 – for a well insulated room with few windows and doors
We then divide the cubic meters of the room by the number associated with the properties of the room. So if our example room was well insulated, this would be 50 / 20 = 2.5. That means your wood burning stove needs to have about 3kW output to adequately heat your room.
