7 Benefits of a Wood Burning Stove

Wood burning stoves are becoming increasingly popular, mostly due to the incredible benefits that having one can have for your family, your home and the environment. Here are some of the most prominent benefits to having your very own wood burning stove:

They’re power cut proof!

A wood burning stove makes a wonderful addition to your home at any time, but during a power cut they really come into their own. Wood burner stoves do not require electricity to work, therefore when the power cuts off, you can rest assured that your wood burner will be there to keep you toasty whilst you’re waiting for the power to come back on.


They look fantastic

The great thing about wood burners is that they come in a variety of different styles, meaning that they make a useful and eye-catching addition to any home. A room that features a wood burner stove has a more homely feel, plus we find they make great talking points too. Guests are often intrigued by wood burner stoves – you may even be asked to demonstrate your culinary skills, which brings us nicely onto the next point…

They can be used for cooking

Wood burners aren’t just called stoves for effect – they can actually be used to whip up some delicious meals. One pot meals are a tasty, easy way to get the whole family eating some hearty meals, and you’ve not tried a baked potato until you’ve had one that’s been cooked on a wood burning stove!

They’re environmentally-friendly

The days of coal-filled stoves filling the air with harmful toxins are long gone. Today’s wood burning stoves are, when used correctly, a completely carbon-neutral way of heating your home. This means that they don’t contribute at all to the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide levels – so you can enjoy a warm, cozy living room, and reduce your carbon footprint in the process.

TOP TIP: When using a wood burning stove, make sure you only use dry logs, rather than varnished scrap wood.


They last longer than multi-fuel stoves

Multi-fuel stoves have lots of benefits, but did you know that wood burning stoves actually last longer? Burning dry wood does not harm your stove, but using artificial fuels can eventually damage your stove, meaning it doesn’t last as long.

They encourage conversation

Aside from heating your home and cooking delicious meals, are there any other benefits to owning a wood burning stove? We’ve had feedback from our customers, who’ve said that now they enjoy nothing more than sitting down and chatting with friends and family with the stove on in the background. Prior to this, it was the TV that took centre stage in their living room, which was inhibiting the art of conversation.

Smoke free? No problem!

Many of our customers thought they would never be able to have a wood burning stove of their own, due to living in a smoke free area. Many wood burner stoves now feature the very latest in wood burning technology, meaning they provide a cleaner burn.
