The Kratki koza brand from Poland is a renowned manufacturer of stoves and fireplaces. This brand is attractive because it has a wide range of options at a budget price.
These fireplaces can be the main heating in your home or an additional source of heat. In the inexpensive price segment, five models with various technical equipment are offered. Let's consider them in more detail.
Kratki Koza K6 is suitable for small dwellings - up to 120 cubic meters. Such fireplaces can be heated with wood firewood and coal. The model has a weight of 120 kg and a capacity of 11 kW and can be connected to a 130 mm chimney. The size of such a fireplace: 578 * 630 * 490.
The Kratki Koza K7 cast iron fireplace is suitable for houses up to 80 cubic meters. Its power is equal to 7 kW. This model is equipped with a glass door that is resistant to temperatures up to 700 - 800 degrees. The stove weighs almost 80 kilograms, has an efficiency of 63.5%, a smoke exhaust of 130 mm and dimensions of 536 * 557 * 413.
The K8 model fireplace is perfect for use in your country house. Its power can reach 9 kW, and this allows you to thoroughly warm up rooms up to hundreds of cubic meters in size. The combustion mode regulator is located at the combustion flap.
A variation of the Kratki Koza K8 T model has a different body thickness than the prototype. The dimensions of both models are 666 * 626 * 382.
The K9 model fireplace stove, made of cast iron, has an original appearance. A production capacity of 13 kW will help warm houses with an area of more than 120 cubic meters.
The model of the long burning fireplace K9 has a variation of the model with the name Decor. Unusual and unexpected is the idea of designers to use side glass in the fireplace to view the fire.
They will allow you to broaden your view of what is happening in the firebox. Such an original fireplace has an impressive weight of 160 kilograms and dimensions of 766 * 660 * 546. Optionally, the K9 model can be equipped with a turbine and thermostat.
Kratki Koza fireplaces equipped with a turbine are connected to a 220 W socket. By means of the action of the turbine, the warm air in the furnace will be accelerated more efficiently, at a higher speed and with greater coverage of the space inside the furnace. The heating of the room in which the fireplace with the turbine is installed will be twice as fast.
The smallest "Kratki" will perfectly fit into the atmosphere of a country house
The cast iron K10 is the smallest of the Kratki brothers. A stove like this is great for keeping warm, but it won't be the main source of heat. In addition, it is very effective in coping with the task of decorating living space.
She, unlike her "older" brothers, has a not so impressive weight - only 11 kg, and its power is about 13 kW. The stove will be able to heat houses up to 130 cubic meters.
The peculiarities of connecting the stove to the chimney is the ability to connect it from the side or back.
As a rule, most often there are positive reviews from owners of Kratki Koza fireplaces. Their popularity is partly due to the optimal price-performance ratio. Their advantage is in a highly precise and efficiently engineered design that will provide ease of use.
Most Kratki koza users are quite happy with fireplaces. Most often, they emphasize the pleasant appearance of the product. Some owners notice that the glass on the doors is periodically smoked, and the fittings are made of thin steel.
From laying firewood to getting the first heat, judging by the reviews, you have to wait about an hour.
The advantages of the product prevail over the disadvantages. The owners are pleasantly surprised by the size of the firebox. A lot of firewood can fit in it, the stove keeps heat for a long time.
Highlighting the features, I would like to emphasize that air is supplied to the oven in two possible versions. One mode will create more active burning of wood or coal. The second will make sure that a portion of the firewood you have prepared burns as long as possible, giving heat. This mode can be convenient for use at night.
In the mode of limited air supply, a device specially built into the fireplace will ensure the complete combustion of all wood.
Each of the brand's ovens is equipped with doors with heat-resistant glass that can withstand heating up to 800 degrees. The firebox door is made so that air can circulate in it. This measure avoids contamination of the glass and the formation of soot on it.
The advantage of these stoves is also in the possibility of various installation of the chimney. It can be installed from the back of the oven or from above. Some stoves can be installed in the middle of the room, which will heat the house more efficiently.
Since these stoves are budgetary, they are made as simple as possible, equipped with only the most necessary parts. The walls in the tightest places are 8 millimeters thick, therefore, with frequent use, such fireplaces are designed for a period of 5 years.
It is for this reason that such fireplaces are most often chosen for installation in summer cottages.
