The Seguin wood stove : presentation
The wood stove is a heating system running on wood. The principle is simple, a fireplace fueled by logs spreads the heat in the house. The Seguin wood stove is ideally used as an auxiliary or secondary heating system. It is available in cast iron or in steel and is available in several formats and sizes. The Seguin brand offers three ranges: design, traditional or mixed, according to the tastes and needs of consumers.
The great reputation of Seguin wood stoves results from their economic and ecological character. Wood is a renewable source of energy, but also profitable compared to gas or electricity. Moreover, thanks to the technological innovation of double combustion, Seguin wood stoves are more efficient. With this system, the smoke from the primary combustion of wood is re-burned. The emission of greenhouse gases is thus reduced. To see the characteristics of the Seguin wood stove in more detail, the next sections will discuss aestheticsthe performance, acousticsthe price, regulation and finally clutter generated by the stove.
The aesthetics of the Seguin wood stove
Seguin wood stoves also owe their popularity to a authentic and traditional design. The contemporary lines of the design model bring a real cachet to a room. The authentic model brings warmth and conviviality to the house with a large window that lets glimpse the glowing logs.
But whatever the choice of design, the very discreet aesthetics of Seguin wood stoves fit perfectly into any decor: vintage, classic or modern. They can even be used as decorative pieces.
The performance of Seguin wood stoves
The wood stoves of the Seguin Deturiez group have a rated heating capacity ranging from 5kW to 20kW depending on the model chosen, ideal for a small apartment or a house of average size. The heating volume of the stove is between 115m3 and 230 m3which corresponds to a surface area ranging from 50m2 to 100m2. However, it should be noted that the performance of a stove depends on the geographical location of the house (altitude and climate of the region) and its insulation.
In addition, Seguin wood stoves offer a average yield of 76% and a dioxide emission of about 0.11%. They also meet the standards RT2012 and can therefore be installed in a new building.
Acoustics of the Seguin wood stove
The wood stove is not very noisy compared to a pellet stove, because it works by radiation. It produces a noise that varies between 45 to 50 dB. For reference, this corresponds to the noise of a washing machine. To compare, a vacuum cleaner produces a noise of 75dB and the noise generated by a car is 80dB. The sound intensity of a wood stove is then perfectly acceptable and can even bring a certain atmosphere to the room.

The use of this system allows to reduce wood consumption by 50% and increase stove efficiency by 17%. Moreover, it is possible to program a night mode (reduced consumption) with the application.
It should be noted, however, that this application is not available on all Seguin wood stoves, some of which are manually controlled.
