Wood Burning Stoves

Wood Burning Stoves

In comparison to gas or oil stoves can represent a substantial savings in heating costs.

Boiler model stoves can heat a whole house or can be used to supplement oil or gas central heating.

Why Choose a Wood Burning Stove?

Wood Burning Stove With the advent of global warming and the rapid increases in domestic energy bills from the use of oil and gas, many households are turning to alternative forms of heating. Most people are aware of the need to conserve energy and the use of a stove to heat a single room or an entire house has clear advantages over the alternatives.

An open fire can cause as much as to 70% of the heat generated to escape through your chimney. Compare this with Stoves which burn at up to 80% efficiency. This results in less than 20% of your heat escaping, thereby reducing both your fuel costs and harmful carbon emissions.

There are some distinct advantages to using Stoves over other forms of heating:

  1. The ambiance of sitting before a roaring fire – the scent of burning wood or the flicker of dancing flames.
  2. For those currently relying on gas or oil-fired boilers stoves can represent a substantial savings in running costs.
  3. Non-boiler stoves are a very efficient method of achieving localised heating.
  4. Boiler model stoves can heat a whole house or can be used to supplement oil or gas central heating, giving the benefits of a cosy fire in the living room, ample hot water and distributed heat throughout your home.
  5. Multi-fuel stoves are smaller than fireplaces – they fit in just about any location in a home as long as there is a way to properly install the stove’s own chimney system. Stoves can also add great architectural features to a home.
  6. The range of sizes and colours is extensive.
  7. They leave a smaller carbon footprint than Oil or Gas and are up to 3 times more efficient than an open fire.
  8. They are cleaner, more controllable and more convenient.
  9. No electricity required for the non-boiler stoves.
