Wood-burning and Multi-fuel Stoves

There is nothing quite like throwing a log onto a real fire and being hypnotized by the dancing flames and glowing embers and listening to the crackling as the wood splits, hisses and splutters and whilst this seems to be all very romantic there is purpose to these appliances too.  Stoves can provide fantastic heat outputs and incredible efficiencies and if you opt for wood-burning these are regarded as carbon neutral appliances as the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere when burned is approximately the same as that absorbed by a tree during its growth.  It is also a renewable resource particularly when fuel is derived from plantations and cultivated woodland.  Wood-burning efficiency can even be achieved in more urban environments with the use of a smoke control kit.  Multi-fuel stoves give you the option to also burn smokeless fuels like anthracite ovoids along with wood.


Stoves are the ‘hot topic’ of conversation in the press of late and new rules regarding the use of stoves is being brought in by the Government.  This is not a ban on the use of stoves, what the Government is trying to achieve is cleaner burning by ensuring the fuels burned are clean.  Stove manufacturers are doing their bit by creating high performance appliances to comply with theEco-Designrules that will come into force in 2022.  However, the stove is only ever going to be as good as the fuel that is burned within it.  The new directive is to ensure wood has a moisture content of less than 20%, such as kiln dried hardwood.  Burning wood with a greater moisture content than 20% will offer little in the way of heat output, will be much dirtier when burning creating tar and creosote deposits, contributes to higher air pollution and can potentially damage the appliance - so really, it is just common sense!  For a little more information click on the woodsure logo - right.
