What is the best boiler stove to buy?


With so many boiler stoves available, it’s not always easy to know which is the best stove to buy.

There’s no single stove that is perfect for everyone. It very much depends on how much you want to spend, how much heat you want to generate in a particular room and how much heat will be needed to meet your household’s needs for hot water and radiator heat.

To help narrow down your search, we’ve picked out some of our recommended boiler stoves based on particular requirements.

Best selling boiler stove

Of all the boiler stoves we sell, the Arizona Nevada 677 21 kW multi fuel boiler stove is consistently the top seller.

The reasons for that are very simple. It’s a very nice traditional cast iron stove offering an impressive 21kW of heat output. Yet the price is just £826.32.

There are very few stoves that can compete with that price while generating similar levels of heat for your room, radiators and water.

  1. I would like to find a competitive plumber to fit a boiler stove in my home. At present they are much too expensive to fit to the existing hot water supply. Although I would probably re-coup the loss from the stove in the long run, I would initially have to outlay a large proportion of the cost of fitting one at present.One quoted £13,000 or thereabouts ( just to plumb it into existing supply ) another one stated, You would have a huge problem with the upkeep of fuel supply e.t.c. ( logs are cheap )( compared to solid fuel or gas )
    Anyone know a less expensive plumber ?

  2. We are building a new house and have already installed plumbing for heating, can we still install a boiler stove? Is it better to have a system than can also heat the water? Or could this prove difficult should there be any problems the wood burning stove/boiler stove should it need repair? We are already planning a wood burning stove but have recently found out we can heat water too, is it too late to make the adjustments needed or is it worth changing to the boiler type stove? So much to choose from we are bamboozled with the amount of different stoves out there.

      Obviously it would have been a bit easier to have had it planned from the outset, but it shouldn’t be too late. It’s no different than most people installing a boiler stove into an existing heating system.

      You will be able to have it so that the central heating heats the water as well as the stove, so it wouldn’t matter if the stove was out of use for any reason.

      Your best bet would be to get a competent installer specialising in wet installations to come and take a look at the property.
