  • Side panel made from natural stone (e.g. soapstone)

What you need to know about combi stoves

Dual heating system

A combi stove can be operated both as woodburning stove and as pellet stove. Changing between both is possible without retrofitting and even during the combustion process.

Fuelled by wood

Woodburning stoves are heated with logs, which have to be replenished manually. The wood consumption is dependent both on the desired heat output and on the size of the room to be heated. The heat output can also be influenced by the quality of the logs. Dry logs have a higher fuel value, which is why a dry and well-aerated storage space is an important precondition. The required amount of logs for one day should also be brought into the living space on the previous day, in order to allow the wood to dry further.


Fuelled by pellets

Pellets are gained from untreated wood and possess a high heat value thanks to their extremely low water content. The pellet container has a capacity of approx. 30 kg, which corresponds to approx. 2 bags of pellets. The pellets are then transported via a screw motor into the combustion chamber and ignited electrically. Unlike woodburning stoves fuelled by logs, the pellet supply for this stove is fully automatic, making the manual replenishing obsolete.

Air supply for combi stoves

The stove requires a regular supply of fresh air when operating. It can either come directly from the same room or from outside:

  • In the case of a room air-dependent stove, the air comes from the same room in which the stove is installed. Sufficient aeration and oxygen supply has to be ensured.
  • In the case of a room air-independent stove, the air comes from outside via a supply line.

Radiant heat and storage mass

A stove emits the generated heat energy via convection heat and radiant heat. In the case of convection heat, cold air is heated, and in the case of radiant heat, objects are heated. For this reason, radiant heat ensures an even room temperature and a pleasant indoor climate.

The amount of radiant heat is influenced by the available storage mass. It is specified in kilogramme and ensures that the stove continues to store and to emit heat even after the fire is already extinguished. The amount of radiant heat can also be increased by using natural stone panelling.


Advantages of combi stoves

A combi stoves combines the best from both heating systems in one single stove. Changing between woodburning stove and pellet stove is possible without switching the operating mode or retrofitting the stove. The stove also has a fully automatic fuel detection system.

  • Two heating systems combined in one stove
  • Change without switching or retrofitting
  • Fully automatic fuel detection
  • High efficiency


The combi stove also allows you to benefit from Rikatronic3 when operating in woodburning mode. Fully automatic combustion control and the display of the ideal replenishing time make heating a breeze. Rikatronic3 offers the full range of comfort features, saves money and reduces the impact on the environment.

Overview of Benefits


Space-saving: In contrast to tiled stoves or brick fireplaces, a woodburning stove requires significantly less space and can also be installed quickly and easily.

Flexibility: With its simple assembly and disassembly, a woodburning stove is also suitable for parts of the home where no permanent hearth (such as with a tiled stove) can be installed.

Low cleaning effort: The combi stoves have a patented interval self-cleaning system and an automatic tilting grate ash removal. This reduces the cleaning effort for the combi stove to a minimum and allows for longer heating times. The higher temperatures during woodburning operation can burn away any sooting on the viewing pane.

Room air-independent: The fresh air required for operating a stove normally comes from the same room. In the case of room air-independent stoves, the combustion air comes from outside, which is why they are also suitable for controlled living space aeration (e.g. low-energy houses).
