Chubby Penguin Multi-Fuel Stove
Chubby Penguin 5kW Stove
The Chubby Penguin is an altogether beefier version of the Short Penguin having an integral store stand (rather than an option) and additional curved side convector panels which not only give it pleasing proportions and a stronger visual presence but also make it a practical heating solution for larger well-insulated living spaces where its convected and radiated 5kW heat output can quickly fill a room. It also features the same high efficiency clean burning firebox (up to 81% efficiency) with secondary airwash for cleaner glass and pre-heated tertiary air to keep emissions as low as possible. The Chubby Penguin is Defra Approved (please specify when ordering) so that you can legally burn wood in Smoke Control Areas.
There's a good-sized and economic to run fire chamber which will easily accommodate logs up to 270mm (11" approx) long, so the readily available standard 10" cut log will make ideal burning. The flame pattern is precisely controlled by two chrome finished push / pull controls at the base of the stove for primary and secondary air and there's also a booster on the door to provide maximum combustion air for even quicker starts. At only 690mm (27" approx) high, this compact convector stove will look equally good installed in a typical fireplace opening or located free-standing along a short wall where any one of the Chubby's five optional contemporary matt finished colours (plus traditional black), offset by the chrome fittings, can be seen at its best.
Other Chubby Penguin options include a factory-fitted stainless steel 2-port boiler with an output of 1.4kW for domestic hot water and as you'd expect on a modern stove there's also the option of supplying the combustion air directly into the stove (DEAS) thus eliminating cold air movements in the rest of the house. All-in-all a great little stove with the advantage of some convected heat.
