Cost Efficient Heating Option
The wood burning stove revolution continues to increase.
Sales of wood burning stoves continue to increase month on month as the UK public look for ways to reduce their heating bills.
The figures go to prove without doubt that the British public are taking very seriously the increased costs of heating their homes. Facts are energy costs can only go upwards with the weakened pound and the turmoil surrounding the world at present.
Whether you’re the proud owner of a shiny new stove, or your thinking of installing one, there are a few things that you need to know to really get the most out of that heating monster in the fireplace.
Seek qualified advice
Before selecting a wood burning stove for your home get expert advice as to the correct model to suit your circumstances. Choosing the wrong stove will cost extra money and can be inefficient which let’s face it is just the opposite of what you are trying to achieve.
Managing the air is crucial for efficiency.
As far as your stove is concerned, air comes in two types. Primary air feeds the bed of the fire, and secondary air feeds the flames above it. Nearly all the energy from wood comes from burning gases released when it is heated – which means that secondary air is much more important than primary.
Make sure you fully understand how to control the air to your new or existing stove.
