The wood burning ACR Wychwood has proved to be a firm favourite with homeowners thanks to its timeless styling, large glass viewing window and superb quality as you would expect from a company with over 30 years experience in the stove industry. With the recent increase in demand for gas stoves, ACR Heat Products chose their Wychwood to be the first of their extensive range of stoves to be manufactured with a gas engine.
The result is something that offers the charm and character of a real stove combined with the added benefit of instant on/off and controllability. In addition, being a balanced flue appliance, the Wychwood Gas Stove is not restricted to installation into a chimney and therefore opens up endless installation options.
Available in Natural Gas or LPG, the Wychwood Gas is designed for use with a balanced flue system. The stove is room sealed which means it takes all of it's air required for combustion from the outside. This is done via the balanced flue kit where the combustion air is drawn through the outer pipe and the flue gasses are expelled through the inner pipe.
The Wychwood Gas Stove is offered with a choice of dedicated balanced flue kits covering most standard installations. When positioning the stove against an external wall, the 'Rear Exit Snorkel Kit' exits from the back of the appliance and takes the fumes (and allows air into the stove) horizontally through the wall to the outside.
Alternatively, the 'Up & Out Balanced Flue Kit' comprises of a balanced flue is attached to the top of the stove and takes the fumes upwards off the top of the stove and then bends 90° to a horizontal section which exits through the wall to a terminal on the outside wall.
If you do want to install the Wychwood Balanced Flue Gas Stove into an conventional chimney, there is a 'Chimney Renovation Kit' available.
Additional balanced flue components can be purchased on more complex installations.
The ACR Wychwood Gas Stove boasts an incredible high heat output of up to 6.1kW. This is combined with amazing high efficiency of 85% making this a gas stove that not only looks sensational but has performance to match allowing you to efficiently heat your room whilst being mesmerised by the stunning flame visuals.
The interior of the stove can be enhanced by fitting the optional black glass panel which reflects the flames for more intensity. Full of cutting edge technology, the stove is supplied with a simple-to-operate remote control allowing you to turn the stove on and up & down. You can even add the optional MyFire package to your stove allowing you to operate the stove from your smart phone or tablet with the handy app. If preferred, you can upgrade to the Symax remote control to allow thermostatic operation and a range of other applications including a child-lock for safety.
For anyone looking for that real woodburner look but prefer the convenience of gas, the ACR Wychwood Balanced Flue Gas Stove is a superb solution. Instant control at your fingertips providing charm and ambience with flickering flames set behind a huge glass window.
