Wood burning stoves equal all round value
Buying a wood-burning stove is a relatively big decision, but besides the potential money-saving aspect, their legions of fans swear by the cosy feeling that one brings to a home. Not getting all romantic about it, we are drawn to an open fire and the there’s a different feel to wood-burning than there is to oil or gas.
Wood burning stoves have enjoyed a huge surge in popularity of late, becoming a must-have addition for chic homes and certainly, there’s a lot to love about them. They look great and, in addition to being a design focal point in any room, they run at an 80pc efficiency, which means lower fuel bills.
Their longevity is in the region of 12-18 years, but it really depends on how you use the stove. It’s also worth considering investing in a reputable brand because you’ll have the guarantee of being able to pick up spare parts if necessary.
From the green perspective, wood-burning stoves are considered carbon neutral, have very low emissions and the wood ash is good for planting and gardening. When it comes to servicing them, it’s recommended that you get this done annually, and the chimney cleaned.
