Woodburning stoves are becoming increasingly popular, with many households across the country now enjoying the many benefits of owning one. There’s nothing quite like the cosy ambience created by a real fire, particularly as we head towards the colder months.

Woodburning stoves are a financial investment, however, it’s an investment that pays off in many ways… 

Value added to your home

Let’s start off with the financial benefits of having a woodburning stove. Whilst we know this often isn’t the main concern or reason for people wanting to have a woodburning stove installed, it’s one that can’t be overlooked. 

Research suggests that on average, woodburning stoves increase the value of your home by 5% which is a significant return given the prices associated with the installation.
