You will have noticed the night’s starting to draw in a bit of late. With the days getting shorter, a gradual dip in the scorching temperatures we’ve experienced this summer is inevitable.
Then the leaves will start to fall and, before we know it, winter will be upon us.
So let’s make sure you don’t have to go through another winter without the warmth and comfort of a wood-burning stove in your home.
Here are some reasons why you need a woodburner in your home for winter 2018.
Whether you believe in some sort of karmic balance being due in the UK’s weather or you think the recent heatwave is indicative of more extreme weather patterns we’re going to see from now on, our long, hot summer could well be followed by a harsh winter. If it is, a wood-burning stove will be a welcome addition to your home for the winter months.
Higher energy bills
British Gas is among the energy suppliers to increase their prices recently, while energy price hikes are expected across the board this winter. Energy bills are expected to be up about £60 a year for the average household by next April. That’s a 5% rise – and there are no guarantees it will stop there. Investing in a wood-burning stove for winter 2018 will end your reliance on the pricing policies of large energy companies. Cut your reliance on your central heating by installing a logburner.
Drying your washing
Regardless of temperature, you can be pretty certain that we will see plenty of rain this winter. A wood-burning stove will ensure that damp conditions don’t impact on your laundry. Use the warmth produced to dry your wet clothes quickly and cost-effectively. Cut your reliance on an expensive tumble dryer.
More efficient heating
A wood-burning stove will save you money in comparison to an open fire. Woodburners are far more efficient. Open fires lose around 80% of the heat they generate straight up the chimney. For a woodburner, this figure is around 20-30%. Rather than go through another winter burning way more fuel than you need to, wouldn’t it be better to install a woodburner?
