Woodburners Save Money

Woodburners save money. Wood burner costs and savings

How much a stove could cut your energy bill depends on various factors, including how you use your stove and how often you use it, also how well your home is insulated. Also, think about how much a stove might cost to install – it could be anything between £850 and £4,000.

A lot of factors can affect the installation price.

If you need a new chimney built or an existing one relined this will cost extra. Once you have installed your stove the savings will start, make sure your supply of wood is of a good quality and at least 2 years matured.

Always use a registered installer

Do you have an open fireplace?

If you have then fitting a new woodstove into the fireplace is going to improve  your heating and what’s more reduce your bills!!!

But please remember firstly and most important ….

Burning wood with a moisture level of below 20% will give twice the heat output of freshly felled timber and will also help to reduce a build-up of tar in your chimney and the environment. To achieve this correct moisture level, the wood should be seasoned or matured for approximately two years. Storage should ideally be outside and be stacked to let the air flow around the timber, this will then dry naturally.

The green benefits of burning wood are gaining wider and wider support. Burning wood cleanly only releases the same amount of CO2 into the atmosphere as from a tree when it is left to rot naturally as it would do at the end of its lifecycle.

What is more, harvested trees are replaced with new trees, which in turn absorb CO2 in the process of photosynthesis as they grow.

Wood burning stoves can be used as an excellent alternative to the main central heating system in your home. Instead of turning up the thermostat try lighting the burner and you will be able to reduce the thermostat in a cold spell.

If your home is well insulated and draught free you could even leave doors open and the log burner will heat assist all-round the house.

So, as you can see there are many benefits of installing a log burner not to mention the fact that a professionally fitted one could increase the value of your property.
