Efficiency and a wow factor!

A modern wood burner is more efficient than many central heating systems and far more appealing to look at than a traditional white radiator.

According to the National Association of Chimney Sweeps, the number of stoves being installed each year has more than doubled over the past decade.

The appeal is not just about installing a fashion statement.

According to reports, regular use of a wood burner can knock a third off fuel bills, providing savings of at least £650 a year.

There is a huge range of stoves to choose from, ranging in price from £500 to more than £2,000.

A key consideration is how much heat it will pump out. Years ago you had to live in the countryside to enjoy a wood burner, but technological improvements mean they can also provide a great heating solution in many town and city homes. Read more

Installation of a new wood stove

With the cost of energy seemingly rising on a monthly basis it does warrant investigation as to alternative heating options. Fitting a wood stove could be the perfect solution as they are without doubt far cheaper to run especially if you can source you own fuel.

We are always being asked the best place and way to install a new wood stove appliance. Stoves basically can be installed almost anywhere in the home but as with most things some are far better than others.

When it comes to flue pipes the hard and fast rule is the straighter they are the better the air will flow. Ideally, your piping should rise directly up into a chimney located above the stove, but angles can be added as required.

Straighter or less curved runs create stronger air drafts that will promote more efficient burning and heat creation. This will also reduce the amount of creosote build-up which is far safer for your home thus reducing the risk of chimney fires. Read more
