7 REASONS TO INVEST IN A STOVE THIS WINTER
1) SAVE MONEY ON YOUR HEATING BILLS
Electricity/gas/oil prices are forever on the increase but burning logs can be up to
-77% cheaper to run than an electric fire
-29% cheaper than gas
-43% cheaper than oil and
-50% cheaper than LPG fires.
2) REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Electricity is the most damaging heating option to our planet as they are the most carbon intensive option. By switching to a wood burner you can save nearly 200kg of carbon per year. Replacing a LPG fire will reduce your carbon footprint by 36%, gas fire by 22% and open fire by 14%.
3) WOOD IS RENEWABLE
Wood is renewable and burning it is a carbon-neutral process. Wood can be responsibly sourced by a company who will replace twice as many trees as they fell. Unbelievably, the amount of CO2 released during the burning process is equivalent to the amount that is absorbed by a tree as it grows.
Wood burning stoves are highly efficient, which is better for the environment and for your pocket. An open fire would be merely 10-20% efficient, whereas a wood burner can be 70-90% efficient.
5) EVERYONE LOVES A REAL FIRE!
Your dog will love it, your cat will love it, your granny will love it, your kids will love it - YOU will love it!
With so many traditional and contemporary designs there is now a stove to suit every home. You can have it freestanding, in an inglenook or wall mounted, with a log store or without, with a coloured door or without. You won’t believe how many options are out there! But if it’s a traditional, small black box you’re after, there are still hundreds to choose from.
6) VERY LITTLE MESS
Gone are the days of dirty black glass and having to clean out massive amounts of ash. All of our stoves have new technologies which keep the glass up to 80% cleaner so you can just sit back and watch the flames, and because they are highly efficient you could be emptying a small ash pan once every 3 weeks.
7) YOU CAN COOK ON YOUR STOVE
Many stoves have the option to boil a kettle, a pan of mulled wine, broth, stew or any other winter warmers. You can also make a pizza, pasta, pancakes… the options are endless! We know you have an oven for that, but why run both when you can kill two birds with one stone? And there's something quite nice about cooking your dinner on a stove, like testing out your survival skills in the great outdoors,but from the comfort of your extra cosy living room :)
