HWAM 2620C Pedestal


The Hwam 2620C Pedestal stove is one of the best value pedestal stoves available anywhere. That's because the Hwam 2620C comes with everything that you could possibly want in a pedestal stove including stylish contemporary looks with beautifully balanced proportions combined with exceptional Danish build quality and supreme user friendly performance. Efficiency is an A+ rated 80.3% so that the Hwam 2620C will also be very economical to use.

The Defra approved Hwam 2620C Pedestal's 4.5kW nominal heat, along with its wide heat output range between 2.0kW and 6.0kW, also make this a very practical wood burner and one that is ideally suited to small and medium sized living spaces. Heat and flame height are precisely controlled with the a single discreet slider control which works in combination with the Hwam AutoPilot. This comes as standard on the Hwam 2620C and is a really useful feature that will make getting the very best out of your stove and fuel incredibly easy. The AutoPilot is Hwam's time-served mechanical device which automatically boosts primary air when lighting the fire for quicker starts and during reloading as well as at the end of the burn cycle to produce more efficient and cleaner combustion wherever you are in the burn cycle.

Direct external air supply (DEAS) capability from the base or rear of the stove will allow you to limit potential cold draughts since the Hwam 2620C does not need access to the warm air for combustion it has just created and which would normally be replaced by colder air from elsewhere in the home. Its DIBt accredited 100% room seal, combined with Hwam's balanced door and patented closing mechanism which ensures a gas tight seal with the minimum of effort, also makes the Hwam 2620C Pedestal a great choice and wonderful focal point for low energy homes, especially those with MVHR systems as well as kitchen diners with extractor hoods.

With its tall curved glass fire chamber window the Hwam 2620C Pedestal delivers a great view of its spectacular flame patterns wherever you are in the room. A powerful 3-Way air wash system, that not only works from the top of the glass but also from the sides, will help keep it that way. There's also a second pressed steel door just below the main door which you just push in to open and which conceals the ash pan compartment with its separate ash pan to provide for much easier removal of the wood ash.

If you want to know just how well built the Hwam 2620C Pedestal wood burner is then we suggest that you take a close look at the thick steel bodywork, especially on the pedestal base (on its own this ways a hefty 18kg) and the fine cast iron door with its robust stainless steel cool-touch handle. Inside the fire chamber, which will easily take 10" long logs, is virtually unlike that of any other stove. It features highly compressed and tightly fitting moulded vermiculite panels, with curved chamber corners, that have been designed to eliminate any inefficient cold spots as well as to prevent even minimal heat leakage in order to keep the fire chamber as hot as possible for much cleaner and more efficient burning. Whatever way you choose to look at it, the Hwam 2620C Pedestal is, in The Stove Yard's opinion, a truly outstanding state-of-the-art wood burning stove that represents excellent value for money.

There are five other models in the Danish-made Hwam 2620 including low plinth and wall-mounted options with a choice of classic cast iron (C) or modern glass-fronted (M) doors.
