2013 saw the launch of the first range of Inset Cassette Stoves from the well-known Aarrow brand from Arada. This was the first move away from the more traditional freestanding stoves which have previously been the core offering from Arada, meeting the changes in customer needs and modern living spaces. The Aarrow i Series Cassette Stoves have already proved very popular due partly to the huge glass areas used on each model offering the most extensive view of the fire ever. Alongside the heat advantages of having large glass areas, the i Series also benefits from having a heat convection system that provides additional heat to the room. The i Series range of stoves offer outputs from 6kW to 12kW across the seven models.

Trying to get mains power to a building can be difficult. In some instances, the location of your dwelling can mean getting a mains supply is just not feasible. This was the case for a customer who built a holiday rental property at Lake Ullswater, Cumbria, UK. The Powerguard PS system installed supplied the property with economical power 24 hours a day; the generator runs for less than four hours per day as opposed to 24 hours. Adding renewable energy, including a wind turbine or solar panels to the system further reduces the reliance on the generator. See how unique energy saving solutions could help you by visiting the website or calling Power Machines.
