These days they come in shiny red with curves; sleek stainless steel and angular; anthracite; oval or asymmetrical. There’s even one shaped like Darth Vader!

Others gleam in white enamel. You can have them installed in existing fireplaces, free standing with their own flue, even slotted neatly into dividing walls with openings both sides, to heat two rooms simultaneously.

Manufacturers of these wonderful new age appliances have seen the rapid growth in sales and have re-acted in a positive manner both in design and cost saving. The average price of a mid-range burner has in real terms reduced by 11.4% over the last four years. Read more

Wood Stove or Open Fireplace? Whats Best?

Wood Stove or an open Fireplace?

Each unit uses wood as the fuel source, which is easy to come by and relatively inexpensive when bought, but there are major differences in the efficiency levels of fireplaces and stoves. Wood fireplaces are best used to heat a single room because during combustion, a fireplace takes in air from inside your home and may bring it in from outside to send smoke and CO up the chimney. This can bring a draft through the house, so you benefit from less of the fire’s heat. A stove, on the other hand, is potentially 50% more energy efficient and uses a third less wood for the equivalent heat output.  Read more
