Direct Air Intake for the Hobbit Stove

Direct Air Small Stove Interactive Spinner

Direct Air Interactive Spinner

We were until today only able to offer a ‘partial’ direct air supply to our small multi fuel Hobbit stove, but we are pleased to announce that after a lengthy design and trials process we have a ‘total’ direct air system for the stove. We attach a rear air box with internal paddle controls adjusted from the front of the stove.

This ergonomic upgraded edition is factory fitted here in our Devon stove workshop and allows for direct air to be fed directly into the Hobbit stove.

The NEW DESIGN allows for independent control of both the secondary and primary air sources whilst retaining the additional primary control on the bottom door. This retention of the primary front wheel giving you even more efficient burn rate control. The two sources of airflow are controlled by two additional controls which are cleverly engineered to be operable from the front of the stove using the multi tool. In trials the box has produced better burn and higher room temps, so far so good!

This NEW DIRECT AIR BOX EDITION is perfect for passive houses or other airtight small spaces such as RV’s, shepherds huts, caravans, mobile homes, boats, motor homes, garden rooms tiny homes and other amazing smalls paces.

  1. 5 out of 5

    Excellent control stopping cold draughts across the room and avoiding that airless feel within the room which happens normally after oxygen is used for combustion.

Direct Air Installation Kit (option)

Direct Air Installation KitWe have a kit available if you want to fit your direct air intake option to the outside world. The kit includes:

A length of 4′ plastic pipe (300 mm)
A round vent which fits the plastic pipe
An adaptor and length of venting flex
2 x 30 .mm wide vent pipe securing clips
Heat proof silicone

Installation of the Direct Air Intake

Mark the exit point and using a 4″ hole drill cut a 4″ hole. Mark through to the other side and then repeat the process from the other side. Some filing maybe needed to allow a clean passage of the 4″ white plastic pipe. This connects on the inside to an adaptor 4″ to 3″. The flexible length of metal 3″ venting pipe connects to this adaptor and then onto the rear 3″ spigot configured at the rear of the direct air box

Only a few simple tools are needed to install the direct air box attached to the rear of the stove to the outside world.
A good cordless or electric drill, 4″ hole saw, a file,a pencil, a tape measure and a screw driver.
