Westfire Uniq 23 Inset

Westfire Uniq 23 Inset

The new Westfire Uniq 23 inset is a contemporary 6kw output wood burning stove with a clean burn high efficiency combustion system.The Uniq 23 inset stove has all the benefits of its freestanding counterpart, but offers a completely different look for even the most minimalist of homes.

The plain contemporary look of this Danish stove makes it fit in with modern design, whilst hiding the fact it is a dual bodied convection stove which gives a more efficient and effective distribution of heat to the room.

    Quite simply a stunning wood burning stove in every single way which is why I have given it the highest rating on every point.

    It lights easily, pumps out loads of heat and makes every evening we light it very special. If it’s a cosy night in watching a film or sitting in the lounge when friends come round or for a party it simply transforms the room into something very special.

    Easy to control it is very efficient and leaves the minimum of ash which is easily cleared away with the ash tray.

    The glass needs very little cleaning if you use well seasoned wood and tends to keep itself clean with the heat and in our high ceilinged victorian lounge it produces enough heat to turn off all the radiators in our living room 16m x 6m x 3m.

    firesonline.co.uk delivered it quickly and were great at giving us advise on fitting it. Don’t make the hole too tight. It has a good border so leave a big enough air gap for expansion and heat. We also put three reinforced concrete lintels under ours and left gaps between them and under it we have wood storage. The gaps between the lintels allow the heat to circulate down which helps dry out the timber stored underneath. Something you may wish to consider.

    The only minor downside is the plaster and white emulsion paint directly above the stove does craze with the heat so if you are fitting one I would consider plastering the wall directly above it (about 30cm) with fireproof cement and using a paint which will withstand very high temperatures. It’s not bad just a slight crazing and the emulsion yellows slightly with the heat too if you like your walls pristine. We also left a a small access hole above the stove to enable the SS flue to have easy access which we put a grill on -a great place too for keeping your cup of coffee hot!

    Our solution to the minor crazing on the plaster and paint above was to have a stainless steel boarded made 18cm wide all the way around which will be slipped in behind the front border of the fire – but to be honest the crazing is a minor point and I have not even got round to putting stainless steel border in place yet.

    I would recommend this stove anyone. Stunning in every way and very very well made – it will transform you living space and keep you snug all winter.

    The stove looks good, although it had a scratch on the door when it arrived. The fire bricks inside the stove have cracked. The supplier was informed and supposedly had contacted ‘Westfire’ who did not respond. The metal grate at the front has also bent. Will this stove last for years I am not sure. Supplier very unhelpful with my concerns over the fire bricks and contacting Westfire for replacements

    Westfire stoves are a pretty good stove, but like a lot of insets stoves from the continent, with the sleek modern design they will not take over burning, you must use only untreated dry wood,a British stove like a Clearview or Woodwarm can be used and abused, but not many continentals The log stop will bend a bit if it gets too hot, I don’t think Ms Fiona Williams bought her stove from a main dealer, maybe from a supplier that got it from the internet.Therefore the supplier couldn’t or wouldn’t have access to spares, Westfires are imported to the UK by Eurostove, If you had bought your stove from a main dealer, they could have replaced any parts within a week or so.
    PS. I do sell stove for a living
