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 10% or more this year, the cost of a wood stove has remained constant.
Even though the cost of wood has risen slightly in the last 12 months, if you can get your logs for free just imagine the saving you can make.
Research shows that an average family are spending over £150 per month just heating a 3-bedroomed house, just imagine this increasing by 40% and how that will affect your family budget.
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 35% 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.
