You can flick through the image gallery below to see a selection of the wood-burning stoves (also called log burners and wood burners) and multi-fuel stoves that Aga sells.
Iconic brand Aga, which is known most commonly for its range cookers, also sells stoves. Despite being a classic brand, it sells both traditional and modernly designed stoves.
Its classic stoves are all made from cast iron, which takes longer to get hot but retains heat better. Its contemporary designs are made from steel, which do the opposite. Having been in business for 90 years, Aga says its stoves are assembled by hand.
These are labelled as Eco 2022 Compliant by Aga, although most other manufacturers call them Ecodesign Ready.
All Aga's stoves come with its Active Airflow technology. It involves circulating cool and warm air to help burn off more of the smoke and gasses and keep the glass clean.
Most manufacturers use similar systems, often referring to them as secondary/tertiary air or cleanburn, and airwash if it's related to cleaning the glass. Whatever they're called, these workings should make the stove more efficient.
A number of Aga's stoves are also Defra-exempt, particularly the modern models. If you live in a smoke-controlled area (you can check this on the ) you will need to either only burn smokeless fuel or, if you want to burn wood, buy a Defra-exempt stove.
Be aware that if you buy parts from someone other than the manufacturer, this may void any warranty or guarantee. Any warranty may also be subject to regular servicing, which we recommend anyway. Our page on has more information.
Before you buy a stove, it's important to remember that a stove isn't something you can install yourself. It needs to meet regulations and be installed safely.
