Autumn is just around the corner
If you want to have a cosy home this autumn and winter without incurring spiralling fuel costs, why not invest in a wood or multi-fuel stove? Industry studies have shown you can save at least one third on your heating bill by installing a stove. According to the Stove Industry Alliance (SIA), a wood burning stove is 77% cheaper per kilowatt hour (kWh) to run than an electric fire, 29% cheaper than a gas fire, and around 43% and 50% cheaper than an oil and LPG fire respectively. Not only that, but it will create a beautiful centre piece that will make your home much more desirable.
If you are thinking of taking this step, why not come into our showroom or give us an initial call? We can discuss your requirements and likely costs involved.
Servicing Your Stove
For those of you who have a strove, here are the main maintenance jobs you should regularly undertake
- Ensure you get your chimney swept; it should be done at least once a year.
- Check the baffle or throat plate protecting the top of the stove. If it has any holes in it, it should be replaced. Remember to clean behind the baffle or throat plate every 4 to 6 weeks to help ensure a clear air flow.
- Check the bricks protecting the side of the stove. They may have cracked, which is fine but if they start to crumble and expose the side of the stove, they need replacing.
- Check if the rope around the door and/or glass need replacing. If it has worn down too far, your ability to control the air flow will diminish and the stove will burn too hard.
