Benefits of Owning a Modern Wood-Burning Stove

We pride ourselves on presenting a comprehensive range of contemporary wood-burning stoves that do more than just add an exquisite blend of charm and warmth to your living spaces. These modern stoves also bring with them an array of incredible benefits, including:

  • High Efficiency – Modern wood-burning stoves are remarkably efficient, providing a significant amount of heat from a relatively small amount of wood.
  • Environmental benefits – Contrary to common perception, wood-burning stoves don't contribute to deforestation, particularly when you choose sustainable sources of wood for your fuel. This can be in the form of dedicated wood farms or, even better, recycling waste wood.
  • Carbon-neutral – Wood is a carbon-neutral source of energy. This means the carbon dioxide released when burning is equal to the amount the tree absorbed while it was growing, maintaining a balanced cycle.
  • Cost-effective – With increasing energy prices, using a wood-burning stove could significantly lower your heating costs, especially if you have access to a cheap supply of wood.

Tips for Maximising the Efficiency of Wood-burning Stoves

For enhanced efficiency, pay attention to the type of wood you use, proper loading and burning techniques, and regular maintenance. Always use the right wood for burning. Hardwoods like oak or ash are preferred for their longevity and heat output. Emphasise using seasoned wood, as it contains less moisture and burns more efficiently. Start with smaller kindling, then add larger pieces once a bed of embers forms. This helps ensure complete combustion and lessens smoke. For maintenance, regular monthly cleaning is crucial to prevent the build-up of soot and creosote, which can impede performance and pose a safety risk. Make professional servicing a part of your stove’s routine maintenance, as expert checks will detect any minor issues before they turn major, thereby extending your stove's lifespan.
