About Log Burners

A log burner, also known as a wood-burning stove, is a great way to keep you and your family warm during the colder winter months, and can even add character to your home. One of the main advantages of log burners is their cost-efficiency; especially with rising gas and oil prices, heating our homes is now a costly (but necessary) expenditure - but what if there was a simple way to lower your bills? A log burner is relatively cheap to purchase, and a kilowatt of heat for an hour costs only one fifth of what you'd pay for electricity, and about a third of what you'd pay for gas, making it an effective way of saving you money. Log burners are incredibly eco-friendly, since burning wood does not increase carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere - it's known as a 'carbon neutral' fuel - so this type of heating is especially good if you want to lower your carbon footprint. The decorative advantages of log burners add a nice touch to any home, and what's more, they bring a unique and pleasant warmth that you don't notice as much from other types of fuel, and will emit heat long after they have finished burning. Having your own log burner brings with it an incredible amount of energy independence, since you will no longer be reliant on the energy companies to heat your home. Log burners are reliable and wood is a renewable source of energy, so a wood burning stove really is one of the smartest ways to keep warm.
