What size stove should I choose?

A good guide for calculating the minimum output required would be to allow 1KW per 14 cubic metres.

For example if your room is : 5m wide, 6m long by 2.5m high = 5 x 6 x 2.5 = 75 cubic metres

So you then divide this by "14", which would give you approximately 5.35KW minimum.

Please bear in mind the insulation in your room when choosing your stove. So if you have single glazing and no wall insulation then you may wish to go for a slightly higher output to compensate for the heat loss.
