Woodburning, Multi-fuel & Boiler Stoves

Environmental Policy

Environmental Policy

Every Kensal stove has been meticulously developed to burn wood or smokeless fuels with equal proficiency and carries the CE mark.†

Logs are better in environmental terms as the quantity of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is similar to that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations & cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give twice the heat output of freshly felled timber but help to avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods of equivilant weight.

In country areas, Kensal stoves have a particular advantage as they allow homeowners to burn readily available log supplies from local sources, rather than look to increasingly expensive oil or LPG equivalents. Indeed, if you have a large garden or spinney or you are a farmer, smallholder or country landowner your fuel could even be free. For town and city homes, the Kensal 20 and Kensal 33 are so cleanburning that they have also been approved for the burning of logs in Smoke Control Areas*.
