There is nothing like sitting in front of a real fire, but a wood-burning stove is often more efficient than an open fire. Open fires are only around 20% but wood-burning stoves are much more efficient, at around 70-90%, so you get all the benefits of a real fire without most of your money going up in smoke.

 

As well as the wood burner itself, remember to factor in the cost of installation, hearth, mantels, labour etc. However, your wood burner should start saving you money straightaway by reducing the need to have the heating on. The installation of a wood burner must meet with Part J building regulations, and the easiest way to do this is to use a qualified HETAS-registered fitter. Wei can self-certify that our work complies with building regulations, so it’s safe and legal. The chimney may need to be lined before the wood burner can be installed. Homes dating from the 1965 onwards should have had a concrete or clay chimney liner fitted when they were built. There are lots of benefits to having a chimney lined, including better energy efficiency.

 

As long as it is sustainably sourced, Wood is a more environmentally friendly fuel than oil or gas – and subject to fewer price rises. Freshly cut wood contains a lot of water, so you have to dry it out (season it) before you can burn it. This can take as long as three years. You can buy wood that’s already seasoned, or you can season it yourself,using a log store – if air can circulate around the logs, they should dry out. And it’s not just wood – with a multi-fuel stove, you can also burn fuels like coal, smokeless fuel, peat and turf, depending on smoke control areas.
