What are the advantages of a wood burning stove?

Posted by Katy Mills on

The main attraction of installing a wood-burning stove for most people is the reassuring cosy feeling and the beauty of the flickering flames of a real fire. However, over and above the comforting fire itself, there are real advantages to wood-burning especially as prices continue to rise on traditional forms of energy for home owners.

Installing a wood burning or indeed multi-fuel stove are a stylish feature to a home.  Estate agents have noted that homes with stoves are easier to sell at a later date.  Your home may not be worth more but certainly sells more quickly and typically nearer to the asking price.

There is an initial set up cost to installing a wood burning stove but one of the primary longer term benefits is that they help lower your reliance on traditional energy and indeed are 80% efficient in heating your room, much cheaper than gas or electricity.

The other advantage is that using a sustainable energy solution like wood is more environmentally friendly.  Burning wood will release carbon into the atmosphere, however a tree will absorb enough carbon during its lifetime to balance the carbon cycle, causing much less damage to our environment.
