Wood Burning Stoves

What is a Wood Burning Stove ?

Wood 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.

 If you want to do your bit for the environment or help reduce your carbon  footprint then a wood burner is a good start.

 Burning 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 .

To get 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.
