      How it Works

  • Active Air Wash

    AGA Active Air Wash System
    This clever technology is used to keep the glass of our stoves clean, allowing a clear view of the fire, while ensuring every stove runs as efficiently as possible. This guarantees maximum heat output is achieved from the fuel used and minimises harmful emissions. It also creates the perfect conditions for combustion by carefully channelling fresh air below, around and above the firebox. Before re-entering the atmosphere, any solid particles and volatile gases produced by the fire are re-ignited and destroyed.

    Stove or open fire?
    An open fire will warm the room, but it has many drawbacks that a stove doesn't. For example, the majority of heat produced by an open fire - up to 85% - will escape through the chimney. Using a stove, heat remains in the room due to the warm air that's continuously circulating around it. And, because an AGA stove is made with cast-iron panels, it can store heat while the stove is lit - so the heat continues radiating through the room long after the embers have died away.


    A stove is also much more efficient at circulating heat through large rooms and the warmth can even rise up stairwells to landings. This means you won't have to rely as much on other heating systems within your home, which could in turn reduce your energy bills

    Fuel Types

    Information on wood fuels
    Unlike fossil fuels, such as coal, gas or oil, wood is carbon neutral. This means that burning a log of wood only produces as much carbon dioxide as a log decomposing on the forest floor. If used in the right circumstances wood can be a highly economical choice, too.

    Dry seasoned wood contains up to 90% less moisture than fresh cut wood, which means it produces less steam and saves up to 50% of potential heat.

    Also keep in mind that hard wood is a better option than soft wood as it is slower to burn, meaning you will use less.

    Wood is a renewable fuel source that is gentler on the environment. It also helps the preservation of fossil fuels such as coal and oil.

    Hints and tips

  • For the best drying conditions, store your logs in a dry store allowing plenty of air to flow around them
  • Wood burns best on a bed of ash so make sure your firebox always has some ash in it
  • Pick out the driest logs; they're easy to spot as the bark comes away easily

Information on solid fuels
There is a wide range of solid fuels available. The main fuel sources used are coal, anthracite and peat briquettes. If you're heating your home 24 hours a day, solid fuel is by far the most economical choice as it generates more heat than wood. It is, however, a less renewable fuel source. Heating your property with solid fuels could also help to reduce condensation and eliminate household mould and toxins.

Hints and tips

  • Clean out the stove daily if using solid fuels as they create more ash than wood does. Coal also burns better on a clean grate.
