As a rule of thumb, divide the cubic space by 14 and this will give you a KW output needed for the room. If your room needs a wood burner between 4-6 KW then you need a small wood burning stove. If your room needs a wood burner between 7-9 KW then you need a medium wood burning stove.
Keeping this in consideration, how big a room will a 5kW stove heat?
So if your living room measures 7m long by 4m wide with a height of 2.5m, then it’s 70 cu. m. of space. You then divide the answer (70) by 14 and this means you will require a 5kW stove.
Secondly, can a wood stove be too big? Too Big Stoves are Inefficient In fact, too big stove will make it even more difficult to achieve the optimal temperature at a low operating cost. And this could be problematic if you live in Smoke Control Area even if your wood burning stove is DEFRA exempt.
