Making life warmer
For more than 156 years, Morsø has spread warmth through homes, created memorable moments of pure happiness, of closeness, peace of mind and comfort.
A choice for life
When you look through our range of Morso stoves, the likelihood is you’ll be sold. You’ll have fallen for Morsø’s timeless look. You’ll have fallen in love with cast iron’s unique properties. And you’ll be convinced by the Morso stoves’ obvious plus points in terms of the environment.
When you describe your relationship with your Morsø in a few years’ time, it won’t be the design, cast iron or environment which will fuel your fondness. By then, your stove will have long become one of the best-loved items of furniture in your home. To choose a Morsø is, in other words, to make a choice for life.
The original cast-iron stove
If you asked 100 random Danish people to name a make of stove, more than 90 of them would without doubt say “Morsø”. With good reason. For generations, Morsø has been the quintessence of a Danish stove. Timeless and modern at the same time. Efficient, cosy and made of cast iron, which many people still see as the best material for a stove.
All stoves want to expand as they get hot. However, cast iron has a thermal tension which makes the material especially well suited to changing temperatures. The result is that a Morsø cast-iron stove neither twists nor becomes skew once it’s heated up. Morso don’t weld their stoves – a Morsø stove is bound with gasket and bolted together with screws, so it will always be perfectly sealed and always good for burning a fire in. Cast iron is highly resistant to burn-through and the thickness of the cast iron used at Morsø is almost twice as thick as a stove made of steel.
You receive a 10-year guarantee against casting faults and other production faults according to Morsø’s warranty conditions.

Choosing the right Morso stove for you
The Morsø range is extensive and comprises of stoves to cover a whole variety of needs. So, despite the fact that the natural thing to do is let taste and appeal decide, start by looking at the various models’ and designs. We recommend you consider a few points first.
Radiant or convection stove?
There are two different types of stove: radiant stoves and convection stoves. The radiant stove concentrates the heat around the stove itself, while the convection stove quickly distributes the heat out into the whole room. The type you choose will therefore greatly depend on what you want your stove to do. If you want cosiness and warmth close to the stove, the radiant stove is a good choice. If, on the other hand, the stove is also to play an effective role in heating your home as a primary heat source, you should choose a convection stove.
The size of your stove is decisive for getting full pleasure of your investment. In this respect, too large can cause problems just as too small can. A stove that’s too small will not be able to heat the room adequately. However, if you buy a stove that’s too big in relation to the room, you will be forever cutting the air supply to keep the room temperature down. As a result, combustion will be incomplete and soot will quickly build up on the window and in the chimney. Not only that, the quantity of soot particles you emit into the environment will be disproportionately high. Next to each of the stoves on our website, you will be able to
use our kW calculator. The kW calculator is a guideline, as it can depend on the design and insulation etc of the premises.
Morsø gives you local warming. Not global warming.
Wood has quite a special property when talking about CO2. As the tree grows, it absorbs and locks in enormous amounts of carbon dioxide as part of the photosynthesis process. Precisely the same amount of CO2 is released into the atmosphere, when the tree is felled and burnt. If burning-off takes place efficiently, the count adjusts downwardly, so we can say that wood is CO2-neutral and therefore a green energy source. Not only that, wood – unlike e.g. oil, coal or gas - can be reproduced by planting new trees to replace those cut down. The neutral CO2-cycle can therefore be maintained. Generation after generation.
To bring the CO2 count completely down to zero, the wood, as mentioned above, must be burnt off as efficiently as possible. And this is where Morsø’s stoves score their first important points. Our many years of experience and constant development mean that, today, each and every Morso stove is among the most efficient combustion systems in the world.
Safety is standard
Morsø’s wood-burning stoves meet some of the strictest environmental standards in the world. This mainly applies to Norwegian Standard NS 3058/3059, which sets out stringent requirements on minimising particle emissions. To highlight our environmental focus, the majority of Morsø’s stoves are, today, also certified to the Nordic Swan Eco-label. This not only focuses on minimising the stove’s impact on the environment when in operation, it also focuses on the impact on the environment caused by the actual production and choice of packaging etc.
A range of Morso stoves are approved in the UK by Defra to burn wood in smoke controlled areas. All Morso stoves comply with European Standard EN 13 240, which, in other words, means that the stoves are CE marked.
Familiarising yourself with the ins and outs (and your fuel economy)
Even the best stove needs your input, if you want to heat your home efficiently and, at the same time, protect the environment from harmful particles. Ultimately, it is a matter of how you use the stove – and of course, what you fuel it with. You can do both yourself and the environment a big favour by following these seven recommendations:
- Choose a stove which complies with the strictest requirements on particle emissions.
- Make sure your chimney is the correct size in relation to the stove. A good draw is essential for optimum combustion.
- Never burn waste, cardboard packaging, printed matter or wood that has been painted or in some other way treated.
- Make sure the wood is clean and dry. Dampness of max 16-20% gives the best and cleanest combustion (and also less soot on the glass).
- Never overfill the stove and avoid using oversized pieces of fuel.
- Air is important for good combustion and good economy. Before the wood carbonises, enough air needs to be added so that flames are produced (always read the manual – it’s important).
- Don’t leave the stove burning overnight. Leaving your stove burning overnight is bad for your wallet and the environment.
