Using your existing fireplace?

How to retain your existing fireplace and fit a new Tiny Stove

Do you have an existing fireplace and want to fit a small stove? One of the issues when you fit a stove to an existing fireplace is getting it to fit into the fireplace without destroying the tiles and surround. The destruction of your existing fireplace is quite often, the reason a lot of folk do not install a wood burning stove.

We have the ideal solution! Our tiny stove measures only 302mm wide, 272mm deep and 465mm high… and yet will output over 4Kw heat – perfect for that small fireplace. You can keep your existing fireplace and with minimal modification, have our tiny woodburning stove fitted very quickly and easily.

With the addition of our existing chimney flue fitting kit you can have your new tiny stove up and running in a jiffy! We have full UK coverage of suppliers and fitters of our tiny stove to help you at every stage and give great advice.
