Itís that time of year again where we love to spend hours wrapped up warm night after night on our sofas in front of the tv with family and friends in an attempt to avoid the cold of the British winter. In the UK we love to bust out the box sets or movies, get a dose of reality tv, do jobs around the house or practice our indoor hobbies, anything to try and wait out the winter, our version of hibernating.
Save On Your Bills
But with ever increasing fuel costs, staying in is not always the cheap option it used to be, if you are in your home every evening, revelling in the comfort of the central heating and indulging in our favourite programmes the chances are your monthly fuel bills throughout the winter will take a big jump even though our wages most likely will not.
Collect Your Own Fuel
If you and your family are worried about staying warm through the winter months with the escalating fuel cost then perhaps it is time to consider having a wood burner installed at your home, they allow you burn wood which can be bought or simply found in your garden, somewhere on your property or even wood which has fallen from trees in public areas. Many people prefer to use treated wood which can cost around £500 per year but if you have access to natural area then you can collect your own wood and dry it our yourself.
Wood burning stoves can be installed as an addition to your current central heating or can indeed replace your whole central heating and water heating system, though this will undoubtedly save you money in fuel, you will spend a lot of time collecting wood and lighting fires, the best solution would be to install the wood burner to supplement your current system and allow it to deal with your short term heat issues in the winter months.
Install an Attractive Feature to Your Home
Wood burners come in many shapes and sizes and can perform different tasks as required and such installation costs can vary significantly, if you are looking to install a wood burner in your home you should be aware that there will be installation costs as well as initial purchase costs. The Wood burner could cost upwards of £500 but once you have cleared your chimneys, installed flues and various other minor adjustments the cost may rise to around £1500, though this may seem like an expensive outlay it should pay for itself in fuel bill savings in between 5 and 10 years, which makes it a cheaper renewable fuel option than solar panels.
If you think a wood burner system could be suitable for you then donít wait any longer, get in touch with the experts today and see how a wood burning stove could save you money in the long term as well as provide an attractive feature for your home this winter.
