ESSE introduces Automatic Electric Ignition

Stove manufacturer ESSE has partnered with British designer Matthew Statham to introduce Automatic Electric Ignition on its range of traditional wood-burning stoves.

The function establishes the fire with full-size logs – no need for kindling or lighters – and overcomes ‘cold flue’ or weak chimney draught.

It works by blasting a jet of super-hot air directly onto the wood to create the fire within five to eight minutes. The heated air also warms the flue and rapidly introduces a powerful draw within the chimney to establish a strong burn, overcoming any ignition issues associated with ‘cold flue’.

Automatic ignition is also better for the environment because it rapidly raises the stove and flue temperature, reducing the time required to reach optimum operating temperature.  The feature is available on the majority of stoves in ESSE’s wood-burning range.
