The Short Penguin Eco (Multi Fuel)

Small penguin, huge personality

The Short Penguin's compact and stylish shape belies its powerful 5.0kW nominal heat output which makes it a great choice for typical sized living rooms with small fireplaces and with it also having a small footprint it's become a popular stove for canal boats, especially when the 1.4kW stainless steel domestic hot water boiler option is included. Please note that when using the boiler the Short Penguin will no longer be a Defra smoke exempted appliance.

At just under 22" (540mm) high and just over 15" (380mm) wide the Short Penguin is eminently suitable for smaller openings too. When its optional rear flue box is incorporated you can significantly reduce the distance from the back of the fireplace and a rear fitted vertical flue pipe when compared to the normal method of standard T-pipe or 90º swept bend. Importantly, it's then actually still very easy to check the flueway and the flue box for debris build-up and to sweep the flue system through the stove. This saves you having to disconnect the stove because there is insufficient space at the sides to access the soot trap at the rear.

Chill Penguin's clean burn and airwash system, including pre-heated tertiary air, ensures the Short Penguin is emissions friendly as well as exceptionally efficient (up to 82% for wood) and will also keep the glass clean (but like all stoves, only if the logs are fully seasoned). Combustion air is precisely controlled by individual primary and secondary air push / pull control knobs at the firebox base with one larger boost control for easier and quicker lighting set into the base of the door. The simple contemporary styled premium steel bodywork can be finished in your choice of six striking matt colours which will be beautifully set off by quality polished chrome fittings. The optional matching plinth (store stand) not only gives the stove added presence but then also allows you to use a 12 mm non-combustible decorative hearth. To sum up the Welsh-made Short Penguin is both versatile and practical and is well worth considering, especially when fireplace space is at a premium.
