The Mazona Olympus is only £229 this month

Our best-selling woodburner: just £229 (until 31/01/15)


The Mazona Olympus 8kW Multi-Fuel Stove was our best-selling woodburner of 2014. As if to give it a headstart for 2015, we’ve dropped its price for January.

Until 31/01/15, the Olympus is available for just £229 – an incredibly low price for a stove that pumps out 8kW of heat.

In fact, the reasons that make it a bargain at £229 are very similar to the reasons it was our most popular appliance last year:

  • 8kw heat output – that’s a big stove for the price
  • Quality cast iron body construction
  • 5-year guarantee covering that construction
  • Timeless, traditional stove design
  • Airwash system to help keep the glass clear
  • Suitable for burning wood, coal or smokeless fuels

Have a look for yourself.

An example of what effect installing a woodburner might have on your heating bill

An example of what effect installing a woodburner might have on your heating bill

One of the questions we are most commonly asked by customers is: how much will installing a wood-burning stove cut my heating bills by?

Usually, we have to explain that the Energy Saving Trust advises that installing a woodburner can reduce energy bills by 10%, but that they also say that bigger savings can be made if a boiler stove is installed. We go on to explain that we hear anecdotal evidence from customers of greater reductions in their bills, but that it is heavily dependent on how the stove is being operated.

At that point, we realise we probably sounded a bit wishy-washy, but it really is tricky to give an exact figure on the saving that can be made on your heating bills by buying a woodburner.

That’s why it is particularly nice when a customer gets in touch to show us some hard evidence of the impact a stove installation has had on their heating bills.

That’s exactly what Nathan Brewer did recently. He sent us a photo on Twitter showing that his monthly Direct Debit payment to energy firm e-on had been reduced from £100 per month to £6 per month. Quite a nice saving, we’re sure you’ll agree.

In a message accompanying the photo, Nathan told us: “Thanks to my DIY woodburner install, received this email the other day.”

Great work, Nathan. We applaud your efforts.

More savings to make

Not content with that, Nathan is now installing another wood-burning stove to help to cut his sister’s heating bills.

He told us: “My brother-in-law and I @DarrylClarke03 are installing an Arizona Seattle.”

Here’s the Arizona Seattle that Nathan has namechecked:

‘It seemed appropriate to have woodburners in a little cottage… We went for the Mazona Orlando.’

The Mazona Orlando multi-fuel stove is one of the stars of a before-and-after renovation feature in the latest edition of Property & Home with Phil Spencer magazine.

Cosy Cottage in Corcombe, Dorset, was bought by Kevin and Judi Maitland, from London, as a relaxing country retreat. But it soon turned into a less than relaxing restoration challenge as the couple initially seemed to have bitten off more than they could chew.

After a seemingly endless run of problems, including dodgy builders, conservation issues relating to bats and quotes of £30,000-plus for, as it later emerged, unnecessary rebuilding work, the Maitlands could finally get on with the more enjoyable task of decorating the cottage.

That process was a lot more straightforward and one thing Kevin and Judi were absolutely certain about was the need to install woodburners to help the newly renovated Cosy Cottage really live up to its name.

They opted to install the Mazona Orlando multi-fuel stove, with its 5.6kW heat output, cast iron construction and five-year guarantee.

On their decision to install wood-burning stoves, Judi said: “The property has two chimneys, so it seemed appropriate to have woodburners in a little cottage.

“They look great, and are really in keeping with the cottage. We went for the Mazona Orlando and it’s exactly what we wanted.”

Despite the stoves being installed and the cottage now looking lovely, there is still work to do.

Judi revealed: “We’ve still got work to do. Nothing has been done to the place for about 40 years, so you can imagine. As I said to my husband, this is work in progress. It’s not done!

“You’re never finished with houses, they always need attention and if you don’t attend to them, they cry. When spring comes, we can start thinking about it.”

Fortunately, the woodburners are their to keep Cosy Cottage cosy through the winter.

Do you like the look of the Mazona Orlando? At the time of writing, it is down to £199 in the January sale.
