The Functionality of Stoves with Back Boilers

For those looking for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective heating solution, wood burning boiler stoves offer a great alternative to traditional central heating options. With a diverse range of models available, Island Pellet Stoves provide stoves with back boilers that are compatible with your existing home heating system and provide an eco-friendly choice for your budget.

Each stove with a back boiler is designed to burn wood efficiently, turning a log burner or multifuel stove into a fully functional heating system for your home. Not only can these wood burning boiler stoves provide warmth throughout the house, they also cater to your domestic hot water needs, providing a cost-effective and efficient way to heat water as well as your home.

The back boiler is a water-filled heat exchanger located at the back of the stove. As the wood burns, heat is transferred from the stove to the water, and this hot water is then circulated throughout the central heating systems in your home – powering radiators, underfloor heating, and even creating domestic hot water.

Benefits of Wood Burning Boiler Stoves


  • Efficiency: Wood burning boiler stoves are highly efficient, converting a significant portion of the wood’s energy into heat for your home. Island Pellet Stoves offers eco-friendly stoves that maximise heat output while minimising emissions.
  • Cost-effective: Choosing a stove with a back boiler can help reduce energy bills, as wood is generally less expensive than gas or oil. Many homeowners also opt for a multifuel stove, which can burn a variety of fuels, adding further cost efficiency.
  • Eco-friendly: Wood is a sustainable, renewable fuel source that helps lower your carbon footprint. Additionally, with advanced burn technology, modern wood burning boiler stoves produce minimal emissions.

Tips for Selecting a Stove


Size, heat output, and style are all important factors to consider when choosing a stove with a back boiler for your home. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Size and heat output: Be sure to select a wood burning boiler stove that is the appropriate size for your space. The heat output of a stove is measured in kilowatts (kW) and choosing the right output will ensure maximum efficiency and comfort.
  • Compatibility: Verify that the stove with back boiler you choose is compatible with your existing central heating system, as well as your chimney or flue arrangement.
  • Style: Cabinet and freestanding stoves are both commonly available- it’s crucial to select a stove that complements the look and feel of your home.
