Keep much warmer this winter and save money

With the colder weather hitting the UK, how do you stay warm? I am sure you will be like the majority and turn up the thermostat on the central heating system. However, a growing number of people are opting for renewable heating sources instead, such as a wood burning stove.

Log burners claim to not only be good for the environment but also a way to cut the cost of your energy bills, also as a bonus they could add value to your property.

So far in 2019 the stove industry is reporting record sales and installations of the traditional log burner. Sales this year are up a massive 28.4% on the same period last year and HETAS registered fitters around the country are very busy trying to keep pace with the upsurge.

Can you really make savings?

A lot of experts estimate after installation and purchase costs households will start to see savings within 2-3 years. There has been a big increase in sales of wood burning stoves lately, both for adding character to a home and adding value to your property.

Estate agents say a certificated wood stove could add as much 5% to the sale price. 

A stove is a highly efficient source of heat – delivering more than 80% efficiency in many cases. The current generation of stoves are clean and very easy to use and control.

Estimated savings of a wood stove

  • 77% cheaper to run than an electric fire
  • 29% cheaper per kW than a gas effect fire
  • 43% cheaper than oil filled heater
