Home improvement is a British obsession. Sometimes these improvements are about making homes more attractive, other times they’re about making homes more functional. As it happens, installing wood burning stoves can make your home both more functional and more attractive, quite simply making your home more homely.
Here are just three advantages of woodburner stoves:
They’re Cost Effective
It’s no secret that the cost of some kinds of fuel is soaring and energy companies tend to increase energy prices at the worst, i.e. the coldest, times in the year. Why not retain control of your energy costs and choose a woodburning stove. As long as you’ve got a supply of wood then you can keep your house warm, and wood prices tend be much more stable than the cost of oil, electricity or gas.
Good for the Environment
Did you know that burning trees is good for the environment? Think about it. Wood is a renewable resource, unlike oil or natural gas, and so there is little impact in burning wood. In fact, the UK could be fuel self-sufficient if it committed to burning only wood from renewable resources.
Attractive features in their own right
There are lots of practical advantages to installing a woodburner. However, they are also very attractive features in their own right. Especially if you live in a rustic property, such as a cottage, a woodburner will be so at home making your home more homely!
