Also available in the Stûv 30-compact range is the H or High Top version. This model can be fitted with a storage core which stores a part of the heat. Once the stove goes out, the accumulated energy continues to be released over several hours, thus prolonging the warmth provided by this stove and feeling of well-being.
There are three simple steps to using heat accumulation on the Compact H, firstly light the stove. Most of the heat is used to heat up the room while some is stored.
Next turn the burning chamber to closed-door mode. This will prevent the release of heat through the glass, instead channelling the energy up into the accumulator.
Once the fire has died down, the heat is slowly released back into the room. The gradual restitution of the accumulated heat will now continue to takes place after even after the fire has died out.
