One of the most desirable features and benefits of a wood burner is the heat output it provides. A wood-burning stove provides a powerful heat source for your home, meaning that the room gets warm quickly and effectively.
There are wood burners available in a range of sizes, colours, shapes and varying energy output levels, so you can choose a model that is most appropriate for the size of your home or the room that it will be heating.
A wood burning stove is a fantastic way to provide a homely ambience, with its combination of cosy heat and the visual impact of roaring flames dancing in the room.
Whether it’s to spend quality family time together, or even if you live alone, a wood burner can really make your house feel much more like home.
Most important is to get professional advice
Before selecting a wood burning stove for your home get expert advice (HETAS Registered) as to the correct model to suit your circumstances. Choosing the wrong stove will cost extra money and can be inefficient which let’s face it is just the opposite of what you are trying to achieve.
Select the correct wood to burn
To get the best from any wood burning stove it is important that the wood you burn has a moisture content of less than 20% – otherwise, some of the heat is wasted boiling the water in the wood instead of generating warmth. Burning wood with a moisture level of below 20% will give twice the heat output of freshly felled timber and will also help to reduce a build-up of tar in your chimney.
