How Does an Ecco Stove Installation Work?

How it works diagram – air channels

The Ecco Stove uses a built-in network of flue ways and air channels to extract maximum heat from the flue gas before feeding it up the flue. This keeps pollutants to a minimum and enables the stove to warm the whole building, not just the room it’s in.

The stove uses silicon carbide to reach very high temperatures in the combustion chamber—typically 900 to 1100OF. This creates a catalysing effect to consume the volatile elements in the products of combustion with the stove prior to being released into the atmosphere.

Silicon carbide absorbs heat and releases it slowly. Tests show the Ecco Stove releases 25% of its absorbed heat seven hours after reaching temperature. In fact, a lower heat release will keep a well-insulated building comfortable for 14 hours after burning just 20kg of wood.

The stove’s output is tested and verified as being 4 to 11kw and the stove’s efficiency is proven to be 85.3% with a carbon output of 0.24% on average. Its efficiency meets DEFRA’s smoke control regulations.

The Ecco Stove is larger than some others but it can be installed in a small room without overheating it. By gently radiating heat over a much larger area than convection steel or cast stoves it ensures the room it’s in remains comfortable if the doors are left open.

    Before Ecco Stove was installed my annual oil bill was £1,350 but Ecco Stove reduced my oil bill to £130 with my wood bill rising slightly to £280. I’m saving just under £1,000 per year on heating alone, and my home is continually warm and cosy.
