The Stovax County 5 wood burner will make a great choice for anyone looking for a stove that makes a classy nod to traditional styling without all the old fashioned fussy detailing and yet that will still create a delightful focal point in a period home or fire surround. The County 5's popular 5kW heat output also ensures that there will be plenty of comfortable heat for most typical living spaces. With it also being Defra approved this means that you can still benefit from burning carbon neutral wood when the County 5 is installed in a home within a smoke control area (most UK urban areas).

The Stovax County 5's advanced clean burning combustion technology, which delivers some seriously low emissions levels well below the tough new Ecodesign air quality requirements, ensures that this is a wood burning stove with impeccable environmental credentials. You get a 2.5kW to 7.0kW tested heat range (depending on fuel load) to allow you to provide some pleasant warmth on colder spring and autumn evenings without resorting to full-on central heating as well as much welcome additional heat on bitter winter days when the central heating sometimes can hardly make a dent in the cold. To control all of this heat and the County 5's impressive flames there are two separate responsive slider controls for quicker starts and precise combustion air management. Powerful air wash jets help keep the gently arched window clear.

As well as reducing emissions, installation flexibility has also been key to the development of the new County 5. For example it has clever integral heat shields to help deliver lower safe minimum distances to combustible materials and the elegantly splayed 125mm high legs ensure that the County 5's hearth temperature are safe for installation on a 12 mm decorative hearth (subject to building regulations). Build quality of the Country 5 is excellent throughout with a fine cast iron door with robust hinges and thick premium quality steel bodywork. There's an all-over longer lasting cast iron fire chamber base with a sturdy cast iron fire grate. When all things are considered the Stovax County 5 Wood Burner, with its back-up from UK's largest stove maker, is going to be very hard to beat when it comes to performance and stylish all round value for money.
