Why wood burning stoves?
Wood burning stoves are becoming more popular as the threat of increased heating bills become reality. Here are just three reasons why you may wish to install one in your house.
1. Highly efficient wood burning stoves
Open fires usually have an efficiency of up to 10-20% where as a wood burning stove or fire will have a heating efficiency of up to 80%. High efficiency wood burners maintain most of the heat inside your home with less going to waste up the chimney.
2. Suitability for Smoke Control Areas
One of the major developments in stove design is the extensive availability of wood burners that are suitable for smoke control areas. Living in a Smoke Control Area means that homes are not allowed to emit any smoke from their chimney when using a wood burner. If you are looking to fit a wood burning stove in your urban home, city dwellers can now choose from the vast majority of wood burners that are suitable for use in Smoke Control Areas.
3. Suitability for use in properties without a chimney
Homeowners without a chimney now have the possibility to add a wood burning stove into their properties. By fitting a twin-wall pipe system, you are now able to enjoy the flames of a real log fire in your home. This will also allow you to investigate other rooms such as conservatories or family rooms which would benefit from the focal point a wood burner creates.
