A professionally fitted wood burning stove can save you hundreds on annual fuel bills. Before having one installed be sure your new heating machine is suitable for your home.
There are a large range of wood burning stoves to choose from, ranging in price from £500 to more than £2,000.
A key consideration is how much heat it will pump out. Years ago you had to live in the countryside to enjoy a wood burner, but technological improvements mean they can also provide a great heating solution in many town and city homes.
Homes with a certified fitted wood stove can be worth a lot more money when selling, also bear in mind some insurance companies will not accept the risk unless the stove has been professionally fitted.
Wood stoves and the environment
One question our fitters are always asked is how environmentally friendly are they? The green benefits of burning wood are gaining wider support. Burning wood cleanly only releases the same amount of CO2 into the atmosphere as from a tree when it is left to rot naturally as it would do at the end of its lifecycle. What is more, harvested trees are replaced with new trees, which in turn absorb CO2 in the process of photosynthesis as they grow. So in short, good!
A HETAS registered fitter is fully trained in fitting and able to give advice as to the most suitable wood burning stove for the area to be heated.
