The appeal of a natural fire is far more than just aesthetic. It can also prove a shrewd investment.
A fireplace and professionally fitted wood stove can add as much as 5% to the value of your home, thanks to its wow factor.
It can also save you money. While energy firms have been hiking up the price of gas and electricity by 40% or more this year, the cost of a wood stove has remained constant.
Research shows that an average family are spending over £250 per month just heating a 3-bedroomed house.
A wood burning stove could be the answer to reducing these potential rises, stove sales are at the highest we have ever seen for this time of year as homeowners prepare for the future.
A wood burning stove is a highly efficient source of heat delivering over 80% economy in many cases.
The new generation of stoves are clean and extremely easy to use making them a must for the majority of homes. A wood burner can be up to 75% cheaper to run than an electric heater and 50% cheaper than a gas effect fire.
Installing a stove can obviously save you money and is something to consider for the future. Make sure you do your homework before deciding as selecting the wrong model for your home could have a detrimental effect.
