The way we use wood burning stoves has changed over the years which means that there is a lot of contradicting information on the internet. In fact, for first time stove users it can be difficult to understand what you should and shouldn’t do with your woodburning stove. In order to find the line between fact and fiction, the team here at Denton Stove Centre have decided to bust some of the biggest myths on the web…

Myth: Wood burning damages the environment

Whilst burning firewood in a stove does release carbon into the atmosphere, it is nowhere near as harmful as burning fossil fuels like coal. This is because the carbon that is released from firewood is only what the tree absorbed during its lifetime, making it a carbon neutral and green choice of fuel.

Myth: Wood burning stoves support fossil fuels

A stove that has been built in order to cater for firewood should only be used to burn firewood. This is because the specifics of a coal stove are different from the specifics of a woodburning stove. With this said, it is possible to purchase multi-fuel stoves that are able to support both firewood and fossil fuels. In addition to this, it is also important that you use the right firewood in a woodburning stove as unseasoned logs will lead to an inefficient fire.

Myth: Smoke control areas forbid wood burning stoves

Smoke Control Areas were introduced after the Great Smog of London in order to reduce pollution and are still in operation today. Homeowners can actually be fined up to £1,000 for failing to stick to the rules. With this said, woodburning stoves are said to burn cleanly so it is often possible to have them in smoke controlled areas, however you should always check with your local council for confirmation.

A woodburning stove is the most cost effective way to heat your home, especially during the cold winter months. After all, it is hard to beat the aesthetics of a flickering flame! Here at Denton Stove Centre, we want our customers to be able to make an unbiased and educated decision, especially if it is their first stove, which is why we have busted the most problematic woodburning stove myths around.
