Gas Stoves 

How much does it cost to run?

Q: How much does it cost to run a gas stove?

A: This depends upon the efficiency of the stove you are considering.

Natural gas that is piped into most towns and cities in the UK currently costs around 2 pence per kW hour. For example, Gazco Gas Stockton with balanced flue has an input of 4.25kW so it will cost 8½ pence per hour to run.

However, the true also cost depends upon the efficiency of the appliance – the higher the efficiency, the cheaper it is to run – and, in the case of the balanced flue Gas Stockton 5 at 80% efficiency, you will have 3.40kW of heat output for 8.2 pence. This makes the real cost of your heating 2.5 pence per kW hour.
