To install a log burner safely and responsibly, it’s important to do your research.
Think first about the size of area that needs to be heated. Next contact a qualified fitter to ensure the model you are looking at will “do the job efficiently”. It’s also a very good idea to research the size and cost of logs you’ll need and whether you can buy them locally.
Wood burning stoves always make great focal points for interiors, they are cleaner and more efficient than open fireplaces, and can save you money on your heating bills. Install one and get ready for your friend’s positive comments, as they will be plentiful!
If you’re thinking of installing one you should start your planning now as sales are booming and fitters do have much longer waiting lists than ever before.
Wood burners are a great way of bringing the comfort of a real fire into your home, even if you don’t have a vast amount of space. If you live in an urban area that is smoke-controlled, you’ll need to check the stove you are buying is approved by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) or go for one that has the option of burning smokeless fuels as an alternative.
