Boiler stove body temperature

The sides, back and top of the stove are surrounded by a water jacket on the boiler stoves and as such will not reach a temperature in excess of the water temperature leaving the stove output ports.

This is quite normal and is designed to preserve as much heat as possible in the water. The majority of heat into the room from the stove will be via the door and glass window.

During the early stages of initial firing, the stove body may feel quite cool even though the fire burn rate is high. This is due to the main volume of heat going to heat the water. It may be necessary to fit a radiator in the same room as the stove to regulate the room temperature more evenly.
