The Defra approved WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door, with its big square window and neat lower door that covers a handy log store compartment will make a striking contemporary focal point in any home. With a highly controllable radiated and convected heat range between 3kW and 7kW it's 4.5kW and its nominal heat output makes it really suited to small to medium-sized living spaces and if it's a low energy home it also features optional direct external air supply compatibility.
There's a big choice of stoves in this category but what makes the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door worthy of your consideration is everything that you get for your comparatively modest investment. OK it's not the cheapest stove out there but that's because at no point have Wiking cut any corners in terms of the quality of its design and construction as well as its ease of operation. To put it simply the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door is a premium quality stove without the premium price tag and is one of the reasons Wiking stoves continue to be amongst The Stove Yard's best-selling stoves.
For example, take a look at the fire chamber for starters. The dense compressed vermiculite lining panels are precisely moulded to offer greatly improved insulation which in turn promotes higher, cleaner burning temperatures. There's not a gap or a loose panel to be seen anywhere and there are no cold corners which would eat away at its A+ rated 83% efficiency. The WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door's fire chamber also features an all-cast iron floor with opening and closing grate plus a separate ash pan below it for easier cleaning. Then there's Wikings unique balanced door mechanism which provides effortless opening and closing, eliminates potential fly ash escape and also ensures a safe and secure air-tight seal every time (yet another good reason to choose the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door if you live in a low energy home).
The WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door's clean burning combustion system with its pre-heated tertiary air that wrings out every calorie of heat from the fuel also features the Wiking Automatic system which automatically manages primary combustion air throughout the burn cycle to deliver quicker starts and to help minimise smoke production as the fire eventually dies down. Wiking say that this system can also help you to save up to 40% on your wood fuel costs. More importantly it further reduces emissions produced by the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door to a level that's substantially below the tough requirements of the 2022 Ecodesign regulations. This makes a better choice for local air quality. Finally, in terms of operating the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door it just couldn't be easier – there's one simple slider control (just below the door) to manage the flame height and heat output. All in all the WIKING Mini 4 with Lower Door is a contemporary styled wood burner that's just about as good as it gets.
