The Benefits of a Woodburning Stove

Woodburning stoves have had a significant increase in popularity in recent years, with more and more people looking to add one to their home. There are many different benefits to owning a stove fireplace, whether woodburning or multifuel, in this article we’re looking at some of the main benefits of installing one in your home. 

Reduce your heating bill

Now that the weather is really starting to turn and the Autumn/Winter months are on the way, many of us are reaching to crank the radiators up. However, with an efficient stove fireplace, you can get long lasting heat from there instead. This is particularly important right now with the huge price increases for gas and electric, stove fireplaces are a fantastic way to heat your home for less!

The experience

Undoubtedly, a woodburning or multifuel stove fireplace offers a fantastic, relaxing experience for users, every single time they use it! Selecting your logs, cleaning the woodburner and building your fire piece by piece is a really satisfying experience. Not only that, but the ambience provided by a lit woodburning stove really does create a cosy and relaxing space that’s perfect for unwinding at the end of a busy day.

Stand up to energy providers

As mentioned briefly above, the costs involved with heating your home are extortionate, and with no clear plan yet in place by the government it leaves a lot of things uncertain. However, by burning wood instead of heating your home through central heating, you’re partly freeing yourself from the clutches of energy providers. Yes, you will have slight fluctuations in the cost of firewood and other fuel types but these are likely to be a lot less severe than the current gas and electricity hikes.

Different fuel options

While we talk a lot about woodburning stoves, this isn’t the only option available! Multi fuel stoves are also a fantastic option that offer a bit more flexibility in terms of the fuel that can be used with them, allowing you to switch between a few different fuel types depending on availability and cost at the time.

Turn your house into a cosy home

The addition of a steady flame is the ultimate comforter at home, especially as the nights begin to draw in! There are countless studies that show the positive impact that the sight and sound of flames can have on a person’s wellbeing. Not only that, but stove fireplaces are perfect for adding a touch of character and a focal point to any home.

Add value to your home

Another benefit of a woodburning stove that can’t be overlooked is the impact it has on the value of your home. Of course, this probably isn’t the main reason you’d be looking to add a stove fireplace to your home, but adding value is one of the financial benefits of the investment! So, if you do install a woodburning or multifuel stove to your home and wish to sell up, they can add anywhere from 5% to 12% to the value of your house. This is primarily due to how sought after woodburning stoves are currently and the fact that they add a point of difference to your home that others may not have.

In fact, woodburning stoves add similar value to your home that a new bathroom would, but they cost a fraction of the price to actually install, making it a no brainer in our view!
