Electricity and gas prices have been rising steadily in recent years. One of the reasons for this is the global energy crisis. To keep warm in winter, wood and pellet stoves are becoming economical and ecological alternatives.

The brand Austroflamm specializes in the manufacture and marketing of wood, pellet and combination stoves. Its products meet the expectations of each household in terms of performance and performance that of aesthetics. Here is our opinion on the Austroflamm wood and pellet stoves.

History of the AUSTROFLAMM brand

The company Austroflamm was founded by Ferdinand Huemer in 1984. Its reputation is based on its technological quality and its quality of service. Indeed, the philosophy of the founder of Austroflamm is based on the courage to change and the pioneering spirit

Austroflamm is particularly specialized in technical innovations in the field of stoves. Two years after its creation, the company launched the The first Joker model cooking stove. In 2002, it developed a very efficient heat storage system: the Heat Memory System (HMS). The company improved in 2007 with the Xtra system and the Karemott system later. 

Today, Austroflamm is a market leader in sustainable and future-oriented stove technology. 

Specialty of the AUSTROFLAMM brand of stoves

Austroflamm differs from its competitors in three major ways: 

  • its design out of the ordinary,
  • its quality without compromise,
  • its future technology.

Austroflamm designs stoves with unique and elegant design. They come in many models, sizes and finishes.

Austroflamm stands out not only for the aesthetics of its products. It also has a reputation for taking an active part in innovation.

Keramott: an innovative, ultra-resistant material that is easy to cast

The Keramott, a fireplace lining invented by Austroflamm, allows for example to haveThis means that the combustion chamber can quickly reach very high temperatures. Keramott is indeed resistant up to 1200°C. Moreover, this innovative material is very easy to cast, which makes it possible to create specific shapes: thanks to this, contact between the walls of the combustion chamber and the fuel is avoided, which prevents the creation of cold spots.

The Heat memory System (HMS)

The aim of the HMS is to provide Austroflamm stove owners with maximum heat accumulation (up to 8 hours). This is made possible by two Austroflamm innovations:

  • A very high density material that absorbs heat quickly and then diffuses it in the slowest way.
  • The Heat Memory System is installed as close as possible to the heat source, for optimum heat storage.

The Xtra

This is a further development of the previous HMS storage technology, which not only heats a room very quickly, but also over a longer period, as the curve below shows.

The idea is to combine the Heat memory System with a heat exchanger, resulting in the addition of over 100kg of accumulation material in the stove, as well as the addition of an adjustable air convection system to maximize heat retention in the room.

With 10kg of wood, an Austroflamm stove can provide up to 12 hours of pleasant heat in your home.

The appearance of the flame and the crackling sound are among the other qualities that consumers appreciate in Austroflamm stoves.
