Have you 500mm of top?

In the market for an outdoor log store and everything Im seeing from the log companies and DIY sheds are all open to the elements at the front. I get that the logs need air circulation but cant understand why they don't have doors to protect from the rain? Is there something Im missing here? Will have an indoor log store too but don't get the point of the outdoor ones that are on the market, especially if buying kiln dried wood as I plan to do.

I put 2 in. Not too complex. Supply and return from stove. And supply and return out to existing heating circuit if there is one. Cold water supply to heat genie for the overheat scenario operated by probe in supply from stove. Pumps each side controlled by pipe start via system link controller if used. Relay lockout of existing boiler when stove pipe start closes. Fairly basic really.

Hope that makes sense.

Was wondering what think about potential carbon taxes and stoves .

Can imagine scenario where taxes are going to increase each year.

Looking to replace my open fire. Was going for insert stove , but don't know shud I concentrate on insulation instead...

I think they will ban stove sales, when is the question. I have 3 installed, bought the latest Jotul for a studio last year. I'd say go ahead with your plans but buy the one with the highest efficiency standard.

Stoves will not be banned. This isn’t a communist country where legitimate products can be banned for sale.
However solid fuel appliances can obviously be discouraged through taxing the fuel through carbon tax. The same can be said for oil boilers, diesel and petrol cars etc.
Oil boilers and stoves will be discouraged massively in new build houses. Again if people want them, they can have them, but will cost them a lot of money to offset against the renewable energy required.
if people choose to put them into their existing homes they can do so without any worry of a ban, however they should keep in mind that a wood burning stove version would be best as the carbon tax on coal/oil will be high.

How are stoves allowed to be used in built up areas and why does RTE promote their use on Eco Eye in built up areas where they hazardous for all living around them?

We were all being told to drive diesel cars by the same crowd also a few years back... hazardous to humans is not a consideration for them.

Please! Stoves are not hazardous. The fuel used in them is. People burning coal, turf, rubbish etc. Dried fire wood is renewable and is the only fuel that should be used in them.

Forge just wondering do you burn hardwood in your stove at home? Im currently thinking of stocking up for winter and buying a 1.6m cubed bag of 80% ash 20% beech kiln dried down to 15% moisture. Price is €285 with delivery included.They also do 1m cubed bags for about €215. Is that price the ball park for kiln dried wood or is there better value out there?

I wouldn’t be a wood expert. I know Cotter brothers firewood in Limerick are and have an active Facebook page for questions. They are members of WQFA Ireland who have members all over the country if you want to google the website.
They are a lot more reasonable than buying imported wood and have a genuine high quality product.

Note to anyone reading- Always buy wood with a low moisture content. Most local fuels guys and garage forecourts sell absolute wet rubbish which is harmful to the environment, bad for your stove, your heat output and your pocket in the long run.

Looking for a good quality inset with a modern look, If any one has recommendations?

Also looking to get external air piped into the stove for combustion as planing on making some air tightness measures in the room.
Can you do this with most insert stoves ?

The stovax Riva and the di luso look well, but not sure how they would perform.

My current fireplace is curved frame as per the attachment- not sure how this will be replaced.
