Heat storage, heat reserve

Heat storage represents one of the distinctive features of tiled stoves which allows you to maintain heat for up to 8 hours after combustion ends. This means you can enjoy constant, comfortable heating, even when you're no longer stoking the fire.

Heat storage works as a sort of "secret reserve" of heat, therefore allowing for significant savings in wood and time.

Imagine you have a traditional wood stove and a storage stove, both with a nominal power of 8 kW.

The wood stove traditional produces 8 kW of heat instantly but requires constant relighting during the day, consuming a lot of wood.

The storage stove although it has the same amount of kW or even less, amplifies the calorific value spreading it over time thus avoiding further refills of wood: at the end of the day the wood consumed will be halved.

When evaluating a storage stove it is therefore essential to take into consideration the hours of accumulation (the interval therefore between one charge and another) e the necessary wood for each refill - factors strictly linked to the storage mass of the stove itself.

Therefore, the greater the accumulation mass, the lower the quantity of wood consumed.

Established that the calorific value of wood is the same regardless of the type of stove, what makes the difference in termini of consumption are the number of refills and the quantity of wood loaded in the same period of time.

In fact, in majolica stoves the same calorific value is simply distributed over more time so at the end of the day you will have done fewer refills and will therefore have consumed less wood.

Taking for example a classic wood stove and a storage wood stove both of 8 kW, the savings can easily be seen from the images which, in the case of 8 hour storage, reaches 80%.

Cerampiù entrust the sale to selected retailers who will be able to help you both in the aesthetic choice (colors and decorations) and in thermal efficiency based on your home and your specific needs.

To obtain a quotation it is therefore necessary to contact a local retailer who will provide all the information including correct installation of the stove and connection to the flue, as per current regulatory requirements.

Radiant heat, an embrace of well-being

The heat of the ceramic embraces every space, reaching the air, surfaces and walls evenly.

Tiled stoves respect the natural principles of heating, eliminating the need for fans or forced systems.

The result? A silent environment, free of annoying dust suspended in the air.

The harmony between temperature and humidity is fundamental for comfort, and a tiled stove, thanks to radiant heat and natural convection, offers uniform distribution without dust movement.

With a tiled stove, the comfort is real and unparalleled.

Wood/electric: two in one

The new system Hybrid, developed by Cerampiù, provides the possibility for tiled stoves to operate in a dual mode, with wood or electricity, simply by connecting the power socket.

The electric mode, made possible by the use of resistors inside the stove, can be used for more saving and comfort of use.

The relase of heat in electric mode is immediate and can be the first support for the wood use.

A programmable tiled stove? Unmissable

Program the electric ignition a few hours before waking up or returning home, to find the tiled stove hot without having to turn on the fire.

The advantages of a modern wood stove, while maintaining those of a classic tiled stove.

Solar energy and radiant heat: the perfect combo

The tiled stove with Hybrid system combined with your photovoltaic system, optimizes the use of captured solar energy, guaranteeing greater autonomy, lower costs and transforming heating into a more intelligent and comfortable experience.

The perfect synergy between energy efficiency and living comfort.

The advantages of combining wood and electricity

The Hybrid technology applied to tiled stoves allows you to have a flexible and comfortable heating system in your home.

You can abandon yourself to the emotion of the fire, listening to the crackling of the wood, or rely on the speed of the electric current, benefiting from its efficiency.

The dual power mode makes the Hybrid stove perfect in every situation. In the absence of electricity you can fuel it with wood, and vice versa.

You can also decide to use alternating systems, preferring pleasant electric heating, or quick and effective wood heating.

The electric ignition of the stove can be easily programmed and managed using a timer.

You can equip yourself with a manual timer supplied by third parties, or choose one with remote operation, which allows you to manage turning the stove on and off via a smartphone app.

In this way you can set it to turn on a few hours before waking up or returning home, so that the ceramic heats up and begins to give off heat without delay.over turn on the fire.

In its electric mode, the stove works simply by plugging into the power socket. Once the ideal temperature is reached, the stove turns off, allowing you to enjoy the heat slowly released by the ceramic tiles.

Savings are guaranteed by the electricity combined with the storage heating produced by the ceramic. After the stove has reached temperature, the ceramic tiles will continue to release constant heat for hours, without the need to refill the wood.

Maximum savings and maximum efficiency are achieved if the system Hybrid it is used in combination with your photovoltaic system.
