It is safe to say that buying a stove is a decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. After all, many property owners say that they are an investment for the future which means that choosing a unit that manages to tick every box is important in order to ensure that the client receives the best value for money. A woodburning stove is one of the most popular stoves on the market and they are known for their incredible affordability. Read on as we go over a few reasons why they are a cost-effective option for homeowners on a budget…
Renewable Fuel Source
The most important thing that property owners have to remember when it comes to wood burners is that they are designed to burn solely firewood and logs. Whilst this may sound limiting to some people, wood is a renewable source of fuel which means that the supply that we have at our disposal is effectively endless. In fact, since there is an abundance of firewood available, the cost of purchasing the fuel is significantly lower than alternatives like bituminous coal.
Efficient Heat Output
Burning firewood has an efficient heat output depending on the moisture content is possesses. After all, well-seasoned logs should ideally be between 15-20% in order to generate the most effective fire output. It is important to take this into consideration because too much water will affect how firewood burns, causing it to burn slower at a noticeably cooler temperature. With this said, well-seasoned firewood is able to provide a consistent and reliable heat output that is both efficient and cost-effective in order to ensure that homeowners receive the best value for money.
Smoke Control Zones
Following the Great Smog of London, the government introduced Smoke Control Zones in order to control the types of fuels that were burned in specific areas. After all, it is hard to deny that there are particular cities and towns that are susceptible to high pollution levels. With this said, DEFRA approved stoves reduce the amount of toxins that enter the environment which means that firewood and logs are often suitable for combustion in these types of units. This means that homeowners on a budget do not have to buy smokeless ovals, which can be expensive.
Here at Denton Stove Centre, we believe that affordability is something that should be taken into consideration when investing in a stove. After all, every homeowner is working with a different budget and it is important that every single one manages to provide value for money as a stove can last a lifetime when it is well-maintained.
