Thinking of alternative heating this winter?

Gas and electricity bills are about to rise due to the weaker pound yet again, so we are told. Installing and maintaining a wood burning stove could be the long-term answer to these rising costs and certainly warrants more investigation.

Energy experts are predicting a very volatile twelve months ahead due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations so saving money has to be a priority.

What benefits can a wood burning stove offer you?

  1. Cut your heating costs substantially
    The cost of electricity, oil and gas remains sky high, heating a property can be extremely expensive. Although the initial cost of a wood burner may be more than a gas fire, it will certainly save you money in the long run. When used efficiently, a kilowatt of heat per hour costs about one fifth of kWh of electricity and about one third of kWh of oil and gas.
  2. The heat is unique
    One of the main reasons many people choose to install a stove is because they have a unique heat. This warmth feels cosy and more pleasant than other types of fuel. Heat is almost instantaneous and very easy to control.
  3. Ambiance and efficiency A Wood burner will emit heat for a long time after it has actually gone out.  Something that gas fires don’t do. There’s nothing like sitting in front of a wood burner.
  4. They are eye-catching
    Wood burners come in all shapes and sizes now and look decorative, they have a certain magnetic quality. They are great for social gatherings as many people, whether it’s at home or in a restaurant, tend to gather around the open fire as a social activity.
