The soft radiant heat of a Tulikivi fireplace spreads evenly in the whole room and gently warms people and objects.
Because you are heating with radiant heat, the room doesn’t reach extreme temperatures as it does with a wood stove, instead the air remains fresh and easy to breathe.Learn about soapstone
Because a Tulikivi fireplace is not short-tempered and fiery, you can even lean against the side of the fireplace and rest your hand against the stone.

A Tulikivi burns wood fast, with an efficiency of more than 80%, and therefore uses almost all existing energy. The soapstone absorbs and stores the heat from your fire, releasing it slowly over a number of hours. The heat radiates from the soapstone, heating the whole room – it isn’t just warm air which rises to the ceiling.
The emissions produced amount to only a small percentage of the world’s strictest allowances, which lead to considerably low carbon monoxide emissions. There are also health benefits to using the radiant heat of a Tulikivi; when air is circulated by the convected heat of a radiator or traditional wood burning stove, it circulates dust, which can cause asthma and allergies.
The heat from a Tulikivi is comfortable heat – soapstone does not get burning hot, so you do not need to keep children or pets away from the surface. In fact, some Tulikivi models include a bench which warms up with the rest of the fireplace.
A Tulikivi burns wood fast, with an efficiency of more than 80%, and therefore uses almost all existing energy. Just a small amount of wood is enough to comfortably heat a home - a 2 to 4 hour burn can be sufficient to heat your home for 24 hours!
Using renewable energy sources reduces the dependence on fluctuating heating costs associated with fossil fuels. Tulikivi provides a “green” cost effective heating solution because it uses less wood to heat the same space than with a traditional wood stove. Tulikivi stores heat in the thermal mass of the soapstone therefore a two hour burn can radiate heat for up to 24 hours producing clean, comfortable, cost saving warmth.
Wood that’s over a year old is recommended as firewood. Wood chopped in the spring can be ready for burning in the autumn, but wood that’s over a year old will definitely be dry. Chopped wood dries best when sheltered from rain and air is able to flow through the pile. The pile should stand on a wooden platform so that the firewood doesn’t make direct contact with the ground.
More than three quarters of UK household energy consumption is for heating the home and producing hot water. With the Tulikivi Green W10 water heating system, a substantial part of this heat can be produced using bioenergy (firewood). At the heart of the water heating system is a Tulikivi fireplace with a heat transfer package installed. Since the heat is taken directly from the fireplace’s heat retaining soapstone, the system is safe as temperatures do not reach dangerously high levels at any point.
The Tulikivi Green W10 water-heating system can also be connected to solar collectors and underfloor heating systems.View products
Pellets are a renewable, clean burning, and cost effective alternative to wood fuel.
Pellets are made of compressed organic matter, often recycled wood waste.
Pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a very low moisture content (often below 10%), meaning they can be burned with a very high efficiency.
Pellets can also be stored more easily than logs, making them an excellent solution for homes with little covered storage.
You can make your Tulikivi fireplace even more efficient by using the pellet-burning system Tulikivi Green P10. The Tulikivi Green P10 pellet system makes use of the Tulikivi-patented whirlbox technology, which ensures clean burning through an effective mixture of combustion gases and combustion air. This means that you only need one pellet loading for heating a category 2 Tulikivi fireplace.
High-quality pellet fuel is characterised by its uniform quality and clean combustion.
During the early stages of the combustion, the combustion air is directed onto the top of the pellet bed as secondary air.
At the final stages of the combustion, the primary air penetrates the pellet bed, completing the burning process.View products
