Selecting a Stove
When selecting a stove for your yurt you must firstly consider the size of the area you need to heat. There are many different types of stoves, and certain designs are more suited to yurts. You need to consider the stoves heat output. The following stove suppliers come recommended by our customers. They will be able to match you up with the perfect stove for your yurt.

- also try www.eBay.co.uk there are some great bargains to be found. Try a search for ‘pipsqueak’ stoves.
Some yurt users install under floor heating systems (usually electricity based, as water systems can be less reliable in the winter months). When correctly installed they provide an efficient ambient heat source for any yurt.
Selecting a Solar or Wind Power Supplies
Yurt users, who are interested in self sufficiency and environmentally friendly power supplies, could try free standing solar power. It is is great for low-power uses, such as providing lighting, laptop/ mobile power and even small fridges.
Wind powered turbines are also a popular option for yurt users, small modern wind generators designed for boats and caravans can be very quiet and ideal for generating additional electricity when sunlight is not sufficient.
