Gas stoves have increased in popularity hugely over recent years. Designed to recreate the character of real logs burning, they appeal to those with busy lifestyles who want the convenience of instant on/off and control of the heat at the touch of a button plus gas stoves don't require the strict installation requirements of a real stove.
A stylish, new model from the iconic brand AGA, the Ellesmere EC5 Gas Stove is manufactured in Britain using the optimum combination of steel body with a cast iron door which features the AGA logo at the base. Finished in classic matt black with an attractive stainless steel door handle with the glass viewing window providing a lovely view of the flames which dance over a highly authentic ceramic log fuel effect.
The AGA Ellesmere EC5 Gas Stove boasts impressive high efficiency of up to 82% with a powerful heat output of up to 5.5kW. Operated by a comprehensive remote control allowing you to turn the fire on/off and adjust the heat output/flame height from the comfort of your armchair. For added control, the fire also features a thermostat which when set, adjusts the flames when the room has reached your desired temperature.
Being a Balanced Flue, the AGA Ellesmere EC5 gas stove is desired predominantly for homes without a chimney or flue. Choose from one of the Balanced Flue kits offered depending on your preferred installation. If you plan to fit the stove against an external wall, the 'Rear Exit' balanced flue kit attaches to the back of the stove and vents horizontally through the wall to a terminal on the outside wall (similar to a Combi boiler).
A 'Top Exit Up & Out' Balanced Flue Kit is also available in a choice of black or stainless steel finish. This option attached to the top of the stove, runs vertically to a 90º bend which then vents horizontally through the wall to a terminal on the outside.
If your home does have a conventional brick chimney, you can still fit the Ellesmere EC5 Gas Stove by opting for the 'Chimney Renovation Kit'. This allows you to fit into the chimney when combined with a flexible flue liner inside the chimney (not supplied).
The EC5 is a lovely gas stove designed for a variety of installation types which is also available in variants to suit homes with either mains Natural Gas or LPG supplies.
