is a Wood Burning Stove ?
burning stove , wood burner , wood stove however you like to call
them they are all the same. As the names indicates it solely a stove
that burns wood!!
These stoves either cast iron or steel bodied and are usually just
firebrick lined on the inside so no grate, riddling bars or
even ash pan. This is purely because wood burns best in its
own ashes (less cleaning out yippee i hear you say!!) directly on
the base of the stove. This also frees up space inside the
stove enabling you to get a larger log inside compared to the
equivalent multi fuel version.
you want to do your bit for the environment or help reduce your
carbon footprint then a wood burner is a good start.
wood is carbon neutral because when burned as the amount of carbon
dioxide released into the atmosphere is the same as that absorbed
by the tree during growth. As we all know it's a renewable
resource, especially when taken from cultivated woodland or plantations
the best from your wood burner, we recommend logs should be seasoned
for at least 2 years or more in a dry well ventilated place to achieve
a moisture content below 20%.
This will give around
twice the heat output compared to freshly cut timber and help avoid
a build up of tar in your flue. If you can obtain hardwood logs
this is better still, as they will have around twice the calorific
value of softwoods.
