FAQs

Why should I buy a wood burning stove?
Their running costs are low compared to Oil and Electricity. They are very efficient especially compared to an open fire which has an efficiency of around 20% where a new Woodburing Stoves is nearer 80%. Wood is the original carbon-neutral fuel. True, it releases carbon dioxide when it’s burnt, but the amount given off is the same as was stored by the tree when it was growing. And, if the tree were left to rot in the woods it would produce the same amount of carbon emissions as are released by burning it. they look great!! You cannot beat a real flame in your home.
