    Boru Carraig Mor 25kW Freestanding Boiler Stove - Country Warmth Suffolk

    Henley Stove Druid 25kw boiler stove stove MCD Stove Centre Barnsley



    2 different stoves i have my eye on however one is saying it heats 2 more rads but both are 25kw stoves. Anyone know why this is. Ive been hearing conflicting opinions on the henleys stove however then im getting an opinion that it might not be plumbed in correctly.

    Once i do get it installed, ill be zoning upstairs and downstairs on different zones so not heating upstairs when no need to when all out.

    Output of pump maybe? Think I`d be asking about restrictions on positioning the rads.

    What do you mean asking positing the rads

    Maximum distance away from the stove for the last rad in circuit.
    I know nothing about these stoves but there must surely be a limit.

    i would be looking at a h2 panel if your planning on heating your whole house with it

    or if you want hot water heated by it a thermal store

    House has already been plumbed in plastic over a decade ago.

    Don't know much about these sort of stoves, But I don't think they can be connected to plastic pipe work !

    The stove has to be connected to the twin coil cylinder with 1inch copper pipe then the rest of the system can be plastic.

    cant just be a cylinder on the stove

    tbh i would start with getting a hetas engy on board and getting him to sort the piping out

    The stove is in my sitting room and the twin coil cylinder is up stairs. the pipe run is about 12m away including going up the wall. Been told from heating engineers and plumbers, the stove has to be connected to the cylinder in copper and the rest of the house can be in plastic to all the rads and hot wter.
