Adding a log burning stove to a luxury property is straightforward

Adding heat sources which are a permanent feature means that you need the best quality. So many times, a superb quality stove is installed but the remaining parts are usually cheap and liable to failure.

Therefore, Schiedel Chimney Systems Ltd., Europe’s leading manufacturer of stove and flue solutions has come up with a combined package of stove and chimney which has the best of both. Both made by and guaranteed by Schiedel.

The DEFRA exempt, A+ wood burning stove

The Stove itself is of a contemporary style and can boast the highest possible rating you can get with a wood burning stove:

• A+ rating, which means the efficiency is excellent.
• clearSkies Level 5, which is the highest which can be achieved.
• Defra exempt, which means it can be installed in smoke control areas and is listed on the Defra website.
• Eco-design 2022, which is the standard required for all devices by 2022, is achieved and exceeded now.

What is “DEFRA Exempt” or “DEFRA Approved”?

DEFRA (Department of Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs) have strict guidelines on emissions. If a stove or appliance passes these emission level restrictions, then they appear on the official website as “appliances that meet specific criteria”, which our Sirius wood burning stove passes with flying colours. This ensures that the customer has a highly efficient stove system within their home. Both Sirius 1, Sirius 3G and our other insert model, Celsius, are officially listed on the DEFRA website.

Both Sirius (and Celsius) achieve clearSkies Level 5, which is a 30% improvement on Ecodesign stove models and all Schiedel models are DEFRA Approved for use in Smoke Control Areas.

Flue system, made by Schiedel; Guaranteed by Schiedel

From a design perspective, the chimney flue pipe is an airtight solution, meaning no ventilation holes need to be created in the walls, therefore minimising the build. The external air for the stove comes through the chimney itself which has three internal concentric rings.

Ideal for timber framed buildings, outhouses, and log cabins

This also means that the flue pipe has an excellent distance to combustibles for timber framed buildings, meaning you don’t have to worry about the outer pipe heating too much when it passes next to wood frame areas. And when it passes through ceilings, the extra components in the package allow safe passage.

An all-in-one combined system

The advantage of choosing Sirius is that the flue system and stove system are provided by the same company. Sirius is exceptionally popular in mainland Europe and has recently been introduced to the UK, as well as achieving the highest rating in the UK for safety and efficiency.
