As the festivities of the past few weeks draw to a close, it is time to accept that winter is now truly upon us. And more and more people are turning to wood burning in a stove or fire in an attempt to reduce their energy bills this year, particularly as (some sources have revealed) the average annual household energy bill is thought to have reached £1,200!
If you are looking for ways to reduce your energy consumption for financial or ‘green’ reasons, installing a wood burning stove or fire provides the perfect solution. One of the reasons for this is that you are able to create additional ‘localised’ heat in the parts of your home that are used more frequently or for longer periods of time each day, whilst you keep the rest of your home heated minimally.
Furthermore wood burning in a stove is up to 80% efficient and if you invest in a boiler stove, your home’s hot water could be supplied as well. There are plenty of reasons to look in to wood burning. To find out more, visit your local retailer for advice or browse our extensive range on our website.
