Today’s hot stove is a wood burning!
The Falkirk Stove Company, one of Scotland’s Leading Wood Burning & Multi-Fuel Stove Retailers.
Forget the old range cooker, today’s hot stove is a wood burning! According to HETAS, the number of homes installing wood & multi-fuel burners increases to 175,000 a year, five times more than in 2007.
Experts say sales of woodburners began to increase at the height of the recession as homeowners tried to reduce energy bills. But they have also become a trendy centre-piece in the homes of many families – with new designs featuring bright colours, sleek and modern shapes and big glass windows.
The endorsement of woodburners by celebrities including pop star Lily Allen, celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and the property developer and television presenter Sarah Beeny, have also helped to sustain the stove as a ‘must-have’ in home-decoration. They are also becoming increasingly fashionable in towns and cities.
According to experts, burning wood costs an average of 4p a kilowatt hour compared with 5p for gas and oil and 15p for electricity.
