WHY BURN WOOD?
With the continuing soaring price of electricity, gas and oil, heating our homes has become more expensive. Wood burning stoves are a lot less expensive to buy than the new technologies, while wood fuel is very cheap in comparison to electricity, gas and oil. A kilowatt of heat per hour costs about one fifth of kWh of electricity and about one third of kWh of oil and gas.
Wood logs give off a warmth which emits heat long after it has gone out, which makes the room feel much more pleasant than any other type of fuel. Wood logs do emit carbon dioxide when burned, however, the carbon that is released during burning is neutralized by the growing of replacement trees.
