Environment

Over the decades, Dovre’s product range has been developed and refined continuously. Today, its woodburning and multi-fuel stoves offer advanced cleanburn technology for improved combustion efficiency and care for the environment.

Wood is better fuel in environmental terms as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is approximately the same as that absorbed by the tree during growth. It is also a renewable resource, particularly when derived from plantations and cultivated woodland. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for 2 years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build up of tar in your flue. Furthermore, if you can obtain hardwood logs this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific value of softwoods.
