Why a stove makes sense
Word on the street is that gas and electricity bills are about to rise due to the weaker pound. A wood burning stove could be the long-term answer to these rising costs and certainly warrants more investigation. Experts are predicting a very volatile twelve months ahead due to the Brexit talks starting so saving money is a priority.
- You can cut your energy bills
As the cost of electricity, oil and gas remains sky high, heating a property can be extremely expensive. Although the initial cost of a wood burner may be more than a gas fire, it will certainly save you money in the long run. When used efficiently, a kilowatt of heat per hour costs about one fifth of kWh of electricity and about one third of kWh of oil and gas.
- The heat is unique
One of the main reasons many people choose to install a stove is because they have a unique heat. This warmth feels cosy and more pleasant than other types of fuel. Did you know that wood burners emit heat for a long time after it has actually gone out? Something that gas fires don’t do. There’s nothing like sitting in front of a wood burner.
- They are eye-catching
Wood burners look decorative and they have a certain magnetic quality. They are great for social gatherings as many people, whether it’s at home or in a restaurant, tend to gather around the open fire as a social activity.
