Benefits of a Stove

There are numerous reasons you might want a stove including;

* Saving money – Particularly if you use oil heating and have a cheap or free source of wood.

* Increased efficiency – If you already use an open fire a stove would be far more efficient,up to around 80% efficient compared to around 20% for an open fire.

* You can burn far less fuel for the same amount of heat.

* Aesthetics – A stove can be an excellent centerpiece for a room, its not unusual for owners to find themselves watching the flames rather than tv.

* Cutting your carbon foot print – Burning wood from renewable resources and replacing other fuels like coal, gas or oil will help cut carbon footprint.

* Value – In the last few years property programs have shown how Stoves/Fireplaces are an excellent selling point for  home, in some cases adding significant value.
