By choosing a wood burning stove, you’re doing your bit to save the planet.

Traditional, atmospheric and authentic, there is nothing quite like a real fire to provide enduring warmth for your home. As well as keeping you warm and providing an attractive feature for any room, wood burning stoves are also beneficial for the environment.

For example, did you know that…

  • Wood burning fuel is more energy efficient than fossil fuel; reducing carbon emissions by more than 90%?

  • Wood fuel has the lowest carbon impact of all renewable energy technologies?

  • All tree-felling in the UK is strictly regulated by a controlled forestry programme, and is designed to add to our region’s wildlife biodiversity and landscape?

 

All of these factors mean that a wood burning stove is becoming an increasingly popular heat source in the place of more expensive alternatives including electric, oil and gas.

Four benefits of a wood burning stove or boiler as opposed to gas, electric or oil appliances

  1. A wood burning stove has no grate or ash pan; the wood is usually burnt in the bed of ash from the night before, making it a more economical heat source.

  2. Our stoves eliminate condensation and continual air changes caused by common heating appliances, making them more beneficial to health and well-being.

  3. Wood is a renewable fuel source, which is also carbon neutral.

  4. Wood burning stoves require little maintenance and upkeep, so are therefore less demanding on your pocket!

Saving The Planet

Wood fuel is an environmentally sound energy source. Compared to fossil fuel heating systems, it can reduce carbon emissions by more than 90%. The carbon released by burning wood chip is equal to the carbon absorbed by the trees during growth. Take a look at the Wood Fuel Cycle on this page. Even when you take into account the energy used in harvesting and transportation, wood fuel has the lowest carbon impact of all the existing renewable energy technologies. There are misconceptions about tree-felling, most of them derived from news reports and documentaries on the destruction of tropical rain forests.Wood used for energy is harvested from the annual crop growth of our regions forests. Any substantial tree-felling in the UK is regulated by a controlled forestry programme and is designed to actually contribute to our regions biodiversity, wildlife, woodlands and landscape.

Using ultra efficient and incorporating the latest and best clean-burn technologies stoves not only look great, but will heat your home in a very efficient manner. Wood burning stoves are cleaner than coal burning stoves, and wood is a renewable fuel source which is carbon neutral, so is friendlier to the environment.

A wood burning stove will have no grate or ash pan, wood is simply burnt on the base of the stove, usually in the bed of ash from the night before. This means that a wood burning stove can fit more logs inside than the equivalent sized multi-fuel model. The benefits of a ?real fired? central heating system as opposed to gas, electric or oil are numerous: the constant heat source, elimination of condensation and the continual air changes caused by a ?breathing? heating appliance, are more beneficial to health and well-being.
