The Charnwood Aire 3 is smallest stove produced by Charnwood. It comfortable produces 5KW at the top end with a nominal output of 3.6KW. This should keep you warm in a space of between 90 and 125 cubic metres of volume. This revolutionary, new, wood-burning stove with an oversized window is perfect for heating small spaces such as a small cottage or flatlet; a home office or a cabin.
Manufactured out of boiler plate steel and comes with a cast iron door and top, and a ‘warm-to the touch handle for safe and easy loading. The handle blends into the side of the stove when the door is closed. The Aire 3 has all the features of both the Aire 5 and Aire 7 and it’s also reasonably priced when compared to the Premium Charnwood Arc and Island. It’s an excellent value for money stove.
The Aire 3 comes with Charnwood’s unique BLU burning technology for enhanced efficiency. BLU is a vast improvement on the new 2022 Eco-design standards. BLU also meets the Defra exemption limits which allows wood to be burnt cleanly and safely in smoke control areas. It comes with a Clear Skies 5 stars rating and meets the UK building requirements for installation with a 12mm non-combustible hearth. The Aire 3 embodies what matter most to Charnwood – clean, efficient, easy to operate, beautiful in any room and responsible to the environment. The Aire 3 steers users towards sustainable and carbon neutral fuel sources such as responsibly sourced wood.
The Aire 3 features Cleanburn Air Wash technology with a crystal clear burn. It has remarkable air control with the easy to regulate ‘push-in and pull-out’ Quattro Flow Air Intake, which is an air management system using a single control to manage the burning rate of the fire. The sizeable combustion chamber comfortably burns 25cm logs. There is no grate as it comes with an ash pan and a ‘sliding fire bed’ for clean and easy ash removal. Logs are burnt directly on this double insulated Ash pan. The drop down throat plate enables chimney sweeping via the fireplace, and there is a pre-fitted external air intake option to maximise heat retention in your room and maintain a good ‘draw’ in your chimney. This improves the operation and heat output of your stove, especially if you are already invested in making your home heat efficient.
The Aire 3 can be pre-ordered with an ‘optional flue boiler and a vertical rear flue adaptor. It comes standard in black, with a choice of 7 extra ‘special order’ colours.
