How it works: A water-heating stove is connected to the central heating system. The generated heat is stored and can be used allover the house in need.
When wood is burned in a stove, a lot of energy is released which flows through the stove in the form of hot gases. With a conventional stove, this energy is released to the atmosphere as radiant or convected heat. In a water-heating DROOFF stove, the gases produced by the combustion process are used to heat the stove components through which water flows.
Connecting a DROOFF stove with a water-heating system to an existing central-heating system is very easy. However it must be done by a qualified heating and ventilation engineer. A regulating and pump system transports the heated water to the storage tank. At the same time, cold water is removed from the tank and transported to the stove. The transport of heat takes place within an enclosed circuit. A boiler safety assembly and a thermal safety device ensure the function of the system even in case of incorrect operation or power failure.
The heating requirement of a house depends not only on the amount of living space but on the number of persons making up the household, the insulation of the building and other factors. Your architect or heating engineer will be pleased to calculate your heating requirement for you.
With a DROOFF water-heating stove in addition to a solar-thermal system or a heat pump, modern buildings with a high standard of insulation are generally well equipped. With the water heated in the stove, you can not only feed your radiators and/or underfloor heating, but you can also have a hot shower.
