Replacing the open fire with a stove, from our solid fuel range of stoves, in your home is a more efficient and cost saving way to heat your whole house. There is a huge saving to be made on fuel expenses! An open fire has an efficiency of around 18%, as the vast majority of the heat simply goes up the chimney. By comparison a quality stove has an efficiency of around 80%. A stove uses 4 times less solid fuel to achieve the same heat output.
There is little chimney draft with an enclosed stove so when the fire goes out the heat is conserved in the room and isn’t lost by going up the chimney. If a back boiler is fitted to the stove then it’s even more economical as that heat is transferred to the radiators.
Don’t forget to install a carbon monoxide detector to indicate any carbon monoxide leaks that may occur in your house!!!
