A multi fuel stove is very similar to a wood burner in construction. The main difference is that the Multifuel has either a raised grate or grate bars and an ash pan. The raised fuel bed allows a stream of air to circulate underneath the fuel allowing complete combustion of the smokeless fuel. When choosing between a Multi fuel & a Wood burner consider your choice of fuel as smokeless fuels are manufactured of consistent quality and are available all year round. Whereas good seasoned dry quality wood in some areas can be very seasonal – if you may run out of seasoned, dry hardwood before the end of the heating season, a multi fuel stove gives you the opportunity of burning a combination.
