It's such a hard one to say but as a questimate I would say anything from 8kw to 10kw would be plenty.
We heat a room of 5.6mx5.7m x2.7m with 3 external walls and 2 external glass doors, one double, with a 3 kw output boiler stove and 1kw radiator. It was lovely and warm even in the cold spell last winter
The room is a new block built extension with 70mm aeroboard platinum insulation in the 100mm cavity and drylined internally in 38mm+12mm kingspan Xtratherm plasterboards.
For a stove consider the Charnwood Island2.
I dont rate there country model range with the V front. The island and Cove are there premium brands.
Thank you for taking the time to reply, Stove Fan. Much appreciated.
The room is superbly insulated with Platium Bead pumped into a 100mm block cavity and "Contega" fleece tape all around the 4 double glazed windows and one extenal door. It has 3 external walls. I would consider it very air tight.
I had a look at the Charnwood Island 2 on HETAS website and even though it is rated with a high efficiency (71.5%), it is only a Wood Burner Stove, unfortunately. I double checked that in Charnwood's own website too. So, that one is ruled out, as I'd prefer a multi fuel stove, please.
I was considering Dovre 2000 Multi Fuel 11KW Stove. It has a 72.75% HETAS Effiency rating. I also liked it for it's rustic, old style looks.
Have you any experience of it, please?
Or, what other quality multifuels could you recommend, please?
Thanks very much for your time.
