The effectiveness of stoves is measured by his redeeming what consequently determines the consumption and consumption changes according to the fuel. Today the two most common types of stoves for the home are: Gas stoves and firewood stoves, these in turn can burn other solid combustibles such as coal and the anthracite. For better understanding, let’s split this article into two parts. First of all we will talk about the performance and power of wood burning stoves and in our next article will discuss the performance and power stoves of gas. Environmental factors can influence heat emission which would result in an increase in consumption and a decline in the efficiency of the stove, but above all what will determine the real heat capacity of a wood-burning stove are its own characteristics.

The first factor that has taken into account is if the wood burning stove is open or closed, in a very simple example to generate 10Kw heat open stove is necessary to employ between 15 and 20 Kg of firewood dry for closed wood burning stoves already consumption is reduced to only 3.5 kg of dry wood. If you are looking for closed wood burning stoves, it has to take into account if these have a self-cleaning system, this system also self-cleaning stove burns all the waste resulting from burning which increases the interval between refills. Another important factor is the location of the stove, stoves open always tend to be in the Center or in a corner of a room or a room, but as the wood burning cast iron stoves are at some point more mobile, remember to not put them near stairs since the escape of hot air will go to superior rooms. Gas stoves for household gas stoves are normally designed to use Natural Gas as fuel, but can also burn LPG with the help of a conversion kit for LPG. Compared with other domestic stoves, gas stoves have better performance, efficiency and a burning cleaner, that is why the sale of gas stoves have increased considerably in recent years.

The performance of gas stoves for the Home revolves around 75% and 90% with natural gas or LPG. In Middle gas stoves power 5kW, enough to heat a room of 100 m 2, but there are stoves reaching up to 10Kw of power or more depending on the size of the stove. Two other factors that contributed to the rise in popularity of gas stoves are easy installation and a burning with low emissions of CO2 and other harmful gases to the environment. The combustion of natural gas or LPG only produce water vapor and therefore carbon dioxide like I use the term clean burning since the production of ash, soot and mainly CO2 are virtually nil.
