What Sort of Stove Should I Have?
In days gone by, Multi-Fuel and Wood Burners were perceived as something only found in very traditional Hertfordshire cottage properties. However, the past few years have seen a big resurgence in stoves fitted to all types of properties around the Home Counties.
Nowadays, advances in modern Multi-Fuel and Wood Burning stove technology mean they are far more energy efficient (up to 85% compared with 15-20% with an open fire). Stoves are becoming an important part in helping us tackle climate change.
Multi Fuel or Wood Burning stoves are hot property, from the traditional ‘black boxes’ to cutting-edge design. They are an exciting way of heating our homes, whether it's just one room, or the entire house. Wood burners create an attractive focal point and a warming welcome into any home.
Wood Burning & Multi Fuel Stoves
Stoves have changed significantly over the years, from a traditional form of heating to presenting a fantastic feature to any home.
Based locally in Hertfordshire, Home Counties Heating's friendly team offers a full service from free advice and design ideas to supply and installation by our own experienced HETAS registered installers.
Renewable heating comes in a variety of forms, but solid wood fuel gives you the best overall compromise. Whether you are interested in saving the planet, saving on your fuel bills or simply just want to stare endlessly into the flames of a crackling log fire we are here to help.
Wood burning stoves are considered to be carbon neutral, as the amount of carbon dioxide released during combustion is equal to the amount absorbed from the air during the growth of the tree. This equals a net balance in carbon use over the life of the wood.
Why just burn one type of fuel, when you can have a choice? You can now choose from a wide selection of high quality Multi Fuel Stoves. Multi Fuel Stoves can burn a number of different fuels such as Wood, Smokeless Coal and Peat, which is why they are often known as solid fuel stoves or coal stoves.
The majority of Multi Fuel Stoves are now fitted with riddling grates that allow the air to flow beneath them, which helps you get the most from your fuel and have a more efficient stove. By using smokeless coal in your Multi Fuel Stove you are able to reach a higher temperature and a more even temperature as the burn rate is much slower. Perfect for running over night on those cold winter evenings.
Mains Heating Vs Cost of New Stove
Heating your home is often a compromise between staying warm and saving money. This hasn't been getting any cheaper, even with the best insulation and most efficient boilers you'll still notice your heating bills going up and up. A new stove can make a big difference to your monthly costs.
