Firestorm offer their flagship stove in three manageable sizes. To work out what size Firestorm Stove you need for your home, use our handy room calculator..
A new generation of multi fuel stoves that combines state of the art laser cutting technology with traditional engineering skills.
With a choice of six striking colours to choose from, a Firestorm stove can be integrated into the interior of any room, creating your own unique look.
Contemporary with a warm touch of traditional styling… designed, engineered and manufactured in the heart of Lancashire.
The Firestorm Stove calculator on our website is a helpful guide. However, factors such as the room design, size of windows, whether they are double glazed and the age of the property can influence your required heat output. Your stove installer will be able to offer advice on your specific requirements.
Yes – We can customise your Firestorm Stove in any of the following colours – Honey Glow Brown, Mojave Red, Metallic Brown, Anthracite and Rich Brown Metallic. Trims are also available in these colours, or alternatively brushed or polished stainless steel. Please ask your dealer about price and turnaround time.
You will need a flue liner if the existing chimney is deemed unfit for purpose. A liner will offer an operational chimney that works effectively. Particularly in old houses where the interior of the chimney has worn away, flue liners will be required to avoid harmful gases escaping into living spaces. A qualified fitter will be able to inform you on your requirements on inspection of your chimney.
New generations of clean burning stoves are much more efficient than those of the past. Now as never before, we are in a position to minimise our own carbon footprint through our choice of heating appliance.
As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide and generate oxygen. Healthy trees in well managed forests absorb three times the carbon dioxide than that generated during combustion; so ensuring the firewood you use is from a sustainable, well managed source (like ours!) reduces the need to burn fossil fuels and, when used in an efficient stove, provides warmth and comfort in our homes without damaging our environment.
Indeed, burning wood harvested from a well managed source is carbon neutral – as whether it is burned as a fuel or whether it decays where it falls in the forest – the same amount of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, and the carbon dioxide released through combustion is also the same as that which will be absorbed when the coppiced tree re-grows.
A pound of fuel will produce at least three times more heat when burned in a stove than when it is burned on an open fire.
In addition to this, a stove requires considerably less air in order to burn the fuel than does an open fire and so cold draughts are usually eliminated when a stove is fitted. An open fire will continue to suck warm air from the room as long as the room is warmer than air outside, and so all the heat produced by an evening fire is lost to the sky at night. Heat produced by other sources such as a night storage heater or radiators is also sucked up the chimney.
When these matters are taken into account, perhaps we can expect something like eight times more heat from a stove than an open fire. This means that not only can a stove heat the very largest rooms, the heat can also be expected to rise up stair wells and warm landings, travel through floors and take the chill off bedrooms. This heat will be absorbed into the walls which act as heat reservoirs.
In many cases a simple room-heating stove can go a long way to heating a whole cottage, or take a load off an existing central heating system in a sizeable house.
Heating with wood or solid fuel has few limitations; the limitations are our independence and how much we wish to reduce our reliance on the nuclear, oil and gas industries.
The Clean Air Act 1956 was introduced by parliament with the objective of reducing air pollution, particularly in densely populated areas. The Act was a significant milestone in initialising legal procedures which would protect the environment. Since the introduction of the Act, local authorities were issued the powers to control emissions and declare areas as smoke exempt. You can find out through your local council if you live within a smoke controlled area.
All Firestorm stoves are HETAS approved and every Firestorm Stove is available in a DEFRA approved smoke exempt (SE) model.
An experienced HETAS approved installer should fit your stove and arrange all the necessary documentation for you. Failure to comply with building regulations will invalidate your Firestorm guarantee and may affect your house insurance and selling your property.

Tar and other deposits will condense onto any cold surface inside a stove, especially when burning wood. This can leave a black/brown deposit on the window of the stove that blocks the view of the fire.
Our Firestorm stoves have air vents that direct a flow of air down across the glass which helps to stop tar being deposited on the glass, this can even burn off tar deposited earlier.
When wood burns most of the visible flames are in fact due to gases released by the hot wood. Inside the firebox of a stove the oxygen can quickly become used up and in the absence of oxygen some of these gases remain unburnt and exit up the chimney.
Our Firestorm clean burning stoves introduce another supply of air into the firebox, preheated so as to maintain the firebox temperature. This supply of air is introduced to the firebox through a series of holes which result in jets of air entering the firebox – this means that the air and gases mix well and encourage more complete combustion.
Once your Firestorm stove is burning nice and hot you may see jets of burning gas hanging in the firebox where the supply of air enters resulting in a beautiful dancing flame display.
Yes. All our Firestorm stoves come with a three year warranty. To view the guarantee, please click here.
The warranty does not extend to consumable parts deemed to be replaceable under normal usage of the stove. Such parts include (but are not limited to) baffle plates, grate assemblies, firebricks, glass, ash pans and rope seals.
Yes – Your approved dealer will be able to provide all spares for our stoves
Firestorm Stoves are fitted with the highest quality Schott Robax glass as standard. The glass will withstand temperatures of 800° and will categorically not break through heat from the stove. Should you require replacement glass for your store, please visit your Firestorm dealer or click here. Please follow advice on how to replace your glass.
There is no right measure of time as to when to replace your rope seals. When the rope is wearing or burnt away, we recommend you replace them. Poor sealing can affect the stove performance, your fuel usage and your safety. The rope provides a smoke seal ensuring no harmful smoke escapes into your living space.
We advise you replace ropes seals with 12mm soft rope for the door and 12mm self adhesive for the glass panel. Using incorrect seals can sometimes affect the door closing properly, resulting in damage to the stove. Should you require replacement rope for your store, please visit your Firestorm dealer or click here.
Yes – You will need to take the door from its hinges and lay it down flat. You need to get the existing rope off the door completely ensuring it is free from residual rope glue, dust, oil or dirt. A screw driver and a solvent will help remove any stubborn deposits in the groove. When ready, apply heat resistant glue to the groove and press the rope down firmly. Wipe any excess glue away with an old cloth. Allow the adhesive to set before reattaching the door.
We would recommend your chimney be swept once a year by a suitably qualified engineer. For household where the stove is used as the main source of heating, we would advise you have your chimney swept twice a year.
The stove serial number is usually stamped on the data plate, found on the lower back of the stove body.
