Wise Living Products




The Sophel range of hydronic heating boilers are true to the wise living philosophy of all Dynamic series boilers. The Sophel combines the ambience of a super large glass front heater with the flickering flames of a real log fire and the wonderful even warmth that only wood fired hydronic heating can provide. This combined with the cost savings gained through the burning of natural renewable fire wood - an important consideration with renewable energy playing such a vital role in todays world. lt's worth noting that fire wood is also considered to be green house neutral.

The Sophel is as much at home in a stately drawing room as it is in the family room of a country homestead or an ultra modern living area.

The Sophel has a combined heat output that will warm up to 400 square metres of living area. lf required the Sophel can also supply piping hot water for the family's domestic needs. The easy to operate air controls allow for total control over the fire and heat available to keep the home comfortable and warm while ensuring efficient even combustion throughout the huge firebox.
*The air controls are available in a chrome or black finish.

The large capacity firebox not only provides for generous heat output but also allows for extended burn times between refuelling an important consideration with todays busy lifestyle. An ash tray system allows for easy and clean removal of ash even if the Sophel is in operation.

A fire poker and multifunction tool is also provided with the unit to help make operation easier.

The Sophel is designed to provide rich radiant slow combustion heat into the room in which it is installed while delivering gentle even warmth via wall mounted radiators or in floor hydronic heating coils to each room in the home.

Unlike hot air based heating systems, temperatures in each area of the home can be individually regulated and doors can be closed for privacy as the heat source is within each room.

Hydronic heating also eliminates the draughts which can be created by fan systems.

The standard Sophel has a single acting glass firebox door which opens like any standard heater door to allow for refuelling and tending of the fire. The firebox door is designed with its own air inlets to help the door remain clean and extend the time between cleaning.

Sophel - Open Fire
Heater / Hydronic Boiler fire place insert with open fire place option (Double acting fire box door)

This Sophel combines all the features of the standard boiler with the option of using the unit as an open fire when entertaining or for those quiet romantic evenings when the charm and crackle of an open fire adds just the right ambience. The double acting door not only works as a standard fire box door but also unclips so that the door and the door frame lifts up and disappears behind the fascia revealing the entire
firebox as a warm glowing open fire.

Sophel Duo (two sided unit)

The Sophel Duo is a two sided unit which has two doors and is ideally suited for installation between two rooms or as a central feature within
a room.

The Duo comes with a standard single acting door on one side and a double acting door (for open fire effect) on the other side.

The Sophel Duo provides large space heating into the room or rooms in which it is installed and will provide enough hydronic heating to heat
a further 300 square metres of living area.

The unit has air controls on both sides and so can be refuelled and controlled from either side. The Sophel Duo is also available with two standard single acting doors if the open fire effect is not required.

Sophel Free Standing Installation Kit

The free standing fire box surround, allows the Sophel to be installed without the need to build a purpose built enclosure.

The free standing version will be more suitable for some homes and can save on installation cost.

The free standing firebox is available in a range of designer colours to suit specific colour schemes if required.

The free standing installation kit is available for both the single and double sided Sophel

As with all Dynamic series boilers & cookers the Sophel can be successfully employed to provide or supplement the family's domestic hot water requirements, either by way of a special purpose built Solar Mio hydronic hot water tank or Solar Mio heat exchanger to convert existing hot water services.
