The Little Wenlock Classic Smoke Exempt is the wood-burning and solid fuel smoke exempt version of our best-selling Little Wenlock Classic.
The Little Wenlock Classic Smoke Exempt is a wood-burning and solid fuel specialist that easily meets the stringent standards of the Clean Air Act. Its emissions are so low that it’s fully approved to burn wood and solid fuel anywhere including smoke control zones in built-up city areas.
Its nominal heat output of 4.7kW makes it highly cost effective, too, and means you don’t need an air vent in the room. The stove also has a conventional flue and uses the AGA Active Air Wash System to keep its glass clean.
In terms of looks the Little Wenlock Classic Smoke Exempt doesn’t disappoint either. It shares the same compact design and intricate hand finished cast-iron detailing as the Little Wenlock Classic. Available in matt black.
Recommended fuel types:
Dry seasoned wood
Hand-made to perfection
The cast-iron panels of an AGA stove are individually moulded in a hand-finished cast. This allows our skilled craftsmen to create the elegant curves and exquisite design details our iconic models are renowned for.
Warms your home for longer
We use cast-iron for its excellent heat retention properties. Even when the embers die away, heat continues to radiate throughout the room. And thanks to the precision-engineered spinwheels and AGA Active Airwash System, AGA stoves offer greater control of the fire.
Build quality that lasts
Like all AGA products, our range of stoves is manufactured to an exceptionally high standard. That’s why they carry the CE mark – as they fulfil all necessary European health, safety and environmental protection legislation – and are HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing and Approvals Scheme) listed. For further peace of mind, every AGA stove comes with a five-year parts and one-year labour warranty.
AGA Active Air Wash System
This clever technology is used to keep the glass of our stoves clean, allowing a clear view of the fire, while ensuring every stove runs as efficiently as possible. This guarantees maximum heat output is achieved from the fuel used and minimises harmful emissions. It also creates the perfect conditions for combustion by carefully channelling fresh air below, around and above the firebox. Before re-entering the atmosphere, any solid particles and volatile gases produced by the fire are re-ignited and destroyed.
Stove or open fire?
An open fire will warm the room, but it has many drawbacks that a stove doesn’t. For example, the majority of heat produced by an open fire – up to 85% – will escape through the chimney. Using a stove, heat remains in the room due to the warm air that’s continuously circulating around it. And, because an AGA stove is made with cast-iron panels, it can store heat while the stove is lit – so the heat continues radiating through the room long after the embers have died away.
A stove is also much more efficient at circulating heat through large rooms and the warmth can even rise up stairwells to landings. This means you won’t have to rely as much on other heating systems within your home, which could in turn reduce your energy bills.
