Install a stove
Qestions and answers
The output is given in kW (kilowatt) and corresponds to the heat given off by the stove at a certain time. The more you burn, the greater the heat output. An electric radiator normally gives off an output of 1 kW. An sauna unit normally gives off a full output of 5 kW.
If the stove has an output of 4 kW for 10 hours the house has been supplied with an energy volume of 40 kWh (kilowatt hours).
The relationship between the exploited and supplied energy in a system. The higher the level of efficiency (0-100%) the better the stove exploits the supplied energy, in the form of the logs that are burned. A stove that is wood fired usually has an efficiency of 50-70 %. Most Contura models have levels of efficiency in excess of 70%.
Contura is available in a number of models and sizes. What you should consider is: How large an area can the stove heat? What does the area where the stove is be located look like? There are different factors that determine the choice of the size of the firebox, the heating capacity as well as the size of the stove itself.

Note that if too little kindling is used when lighting, or if the wood is too thickly cut, the firebox will not reach the correct operating temperature. Incorrect lighting can lead to poor com-bustion with heavy sooting and may result in the fire going out when the hatch is shut.
Please refer to supplementary instructions or ask your local authority for advice regarding building regulations. Before installing a stove or erecting a chimney it is necessary for you to make a building application permission to your local authority.
It is extremely important that the installation is inspected by an authorised chimney sweep before the stove is used. Also read the ”Lighting instructions”, before lighting for the first time.
In our stoves there is a type of "yellow bricks" mounted on the sides and in the top of the combustion chamber. The fire bricks are are called vermiculite and they insulate the stove and ensure that it can keep warm. The bricks are usually easy to replace and you can buy new ones from your local dealer.
The fire bricks are a consumable and the lifespan varies depending on how much you fire and if you bump into the bricks with firewood at insertion. The lifespan of a wood stove would diminish immensely without protection from the bricks. Without the fire bricks, the excessive heat of the exterior steel on the wood stove could set fire to combustible objects around the stove. You should replace broken fire bricks immediately with Contura original bricks. Replacing the broken bricks extends the life of your wood stove.
