Heating with wood is back in fashion, because in addition to the cozy warmth, it also appeals to our other senses and creates a feel-good atmosphere. When it crackles in the fireplace, most homeowners' hearts will beat faster. However, it is easy to forget that older stoves in particular also release a lot of fine dust that pollutes the environment. Fireplaces and tiled stoves that have been in service for over 33 years no longer meet the current requirements of the Federal Immission Control Ordinance. Modern stoves, on the other hand, use an optimized air supply and an advanced design and thus achieve up to 80 percent less harmful emissions. Your maintenance and care is also much easier.

Good to know: By the end of 2020, old stoves that were approved before January 1, 1995 are to be shut down or converted. Retrofitting is usually not worth it, as this would be more expensive than buying a new oven.

Modern technology for stoves

If you want to buy a modern stove, you can choose between different models. Today's manufacturers are aware of their ecological responsibility and attach great importance to the lowest possible emissions.

Modern pellet stove

Roaring log fire without logs - is that possible? Yes, with a modern pellet stove. This makes less dirt, takes up less space and is more convenient than other ovens. Because the wood pellets are not filled as fuel in the combustion chamber, but in an integrated container from which they are automatically transported into the combustion chamber. Depending on the model of the pellet stove, you can easily control how many pellets are burned and when. A good thing, because you can control the temperature and burning time of your pellet stove individually. In addition, you do not have to constantly add new logs and the ash container is filled much less. Another plus: modern models are particularly low in emissions, so you can heat with modern pellet stoves in an environmentally friendly way. When buying the pellets, make sure that they are of good quality, as this not only significantly affects pollutant emissions, but also the burning performance.

Heating with wood pellets in a modern pellet stove is not only particularly low in emissions, often the temperature and burning time can also be individually controlled.

Channeled pellet stoves

If you have chosen a pellet stove, you should also consider whether your stove should only provide heat in one room or whether you want to use the pellet stove in other rooms. There are pellet stoves that are ducted with warm air. Via a pipe system installed in the wall, so-called warm air ducts, part of the heat generated by the pellet stove is also blown into other rooms. Most of the pellet stoves have a display or a remote control that can be used to determine exactly how much heat is required in which room.

Good to know: A ducted pellet stove should have a higher heat output than a normal pellet stove, since it is used to heat several rooms. Ask your specialist dealer for advice.

Water-bearing fireplace

A particularly energy-saving option is a water-bearing stove. Because in addition to the pleasant room climate and the beautiful appearance, these stoves can simultaneously heat the domestic and industrial water of your house and thus perfectly complement your heating. And this is particularly advantageous in old buildings with gas and oil heating. Great extra: you reduce your CO2 emissions and produce your hot water more environmentally friendly.

With water-bearing fireplaces, you have the choice of whether you prefer to fire a stove with pellets or with logs. The fire lit in the stove gives off part of the heat to the living room, and part of it is stored in a so-called buffer storage. If necessary, the heat can then be integrated into the heating system via the heat exchanger.

Good to know: Here too, advice from an expert is recommended, because you should select the stove output according to the living space to be heated and your water consumption.

Another option for heating your living space is the permanent fire. This is fired with coal and could be heated permanently, even over 24 hours. A major difference to other stoves: the long-life stove has its name from the fact that it can be operated for a long time without having to add coal. It can stay on the embers for at least four hours, providing lasting, pleasant warmth. Alternatively, the stove can also be fired with wood. With this type of furnace you should prefer coal, because this is the best way to use the heat output. The pronounced trough inside the furnace enables coal briquettes to be optimally burned by the appropriate air supply. The long-lasting stove heats up more slowly, but can store the heat significantly longer than time-burning stoves, which include wood-burning or pellet stoves.

Good to know: You can also install the continuous fire stove as a water-carrying stove, which also relieves your heating system.

Modern fireplaces - great eye-catchers in your living room

Modern stoves are now available in great variations, shapes and colors that will also be an eye catcher in your living room.

Square stoves

Square stoves look particularly pure and reduced. These often offer a particularly wide view of the fire and fit perfectly into modern apartments and houses that are minimally furnished. Depending on your wishes, you can use the color of the stove to set a trendy accent that highlights the modern stove even more, or integrate it with restraint.

Round stoves

Round or oval stoves are extravagant and particularly space-saving. Special extra: Depending on how big the disc is and whether the stove is placed on a rotating surface, you can not only enjoy the fire from your favorite place in the living room, but also from the dining table.

Tunnel chimney

Tunnel chimneys, which are preferably integrated into partition walls, offer a very special view. So you can enjoy the crackling fire behind glass from both sides and still almost have the feeling of sitting in front of an open fireplace.

Vintage stoves

Retro is back in vogue - also with stoves. Because even if the nostalgic stoves look like from grandmother's parlor, you combine retro love with the latest technology.

Stoves for every room size

Do you only have a small room where you can place your wood heating? No problem, because there are small stoves everywhere. In this case, it is more important that the stove does not reach too high a heating output in order not to "overheat" the room. When designing small stoves, the spectrum ranges from nostalgic stoves to modern stoves. These are specially designed so that you have the smallest possible footprint. However, the distance from the wall must also be observed with small models. Alternatively, you can also effectively design unused angles with a corner fireplace. The tunnel chimney is a particularly noble variant. With this model, the stove is integrated into a partition in the building - this is not only a great eye-catcher, but also saves additional space for the stove. Another alternative is wall-mounted stoves that do not take up any floor space.

Fireplace kit: advantages and disadvantages

A fireplace kit can also be interesting for DIY enthusiasts. These promise simple assembly and attractive cost savings. In addition to the stove, chimney kits contain a cladding with which the stove can be perfectly integrated into the living room. The professional connection of the stovepipe to the chimney is particularly important so that the chimney sweep can give the operating permit. Is it really that easy to assemble a fireplace kit and can keep up with the professional stoves? DAS HAUS shows you the advantages and disadvantages of these models.

Advantages of the fireplace kit

  • Easy installation
  • Cost savings for a craftsman
  • Lower furnace costs
  • Assembly without dirt and dust
  • Large selection of models

Disadvantages chimney kit

  • Lower heating output
  • High expenditure of time through personal contribution
