What is the importance of installing a wood burning stove in Nottingham?
Installing a wood burning stove is easy, as long as you know how. And here’s the thing – unless you’re a professional, you don’t. Attempting to install a wood burning stove without expert knowledge can be extremely dangerous: in enclosed environments and spaces, it can even cause death through smoke or carbon monoxide poisoning. Never attempt your own installation – leave it to the professionals and you’ll get perfect, safe results every time.
The benefits of having a wood burning stove are many and varied. The wood burner is traditionally better at delivering and maintaining heat than a fire: it uses less wood and it is far less dangerous too. Installing a wood burning stove means having all the aesthetic benefits of a fire without many of the dangers inherent in burning fuel in an open grate. The wood burner offers all the beauty of an open fire, and more of the heat (at a much greater level of efficiency) – but without the possibility of burning embers causing house fir78es, or pets or small children receiving burns.
One of the most obvious advantages of having a wood burning stove is that it comes, or it ought to come, with an energy rating, measured in kilowatts. That means, basically, that you should know before you buy how much heat and light energy the wood burner is going to produce. And that means that you can calculate the right stove for your room using a kilowatt calculator – hundreds of variations on which can be found all over the internet. If you’re thinking of installing a wood burning stove just enter the dimensions of the room in question into whatever kilowatt calculator you can find. The calculator will return the heating level necessary for that size room – and you know what to buy.
Heating wise, a wood burner scores big. Once it has burned for a while, and settled down, the burner’s flue pipes can keep a room warm for hours. That effectively means that using a wood burner is like having a short burst of active central heating, which keeps a place hot for several hours after the heating itself has shut down. In this day and age, installing a wood burning stove can represent huge savings on winter heating bills – and, of course, a much nicer kind of heat and atmosphere to boot.
People often overlook the comforting aspect of a fire – usually because they haven’t used one for a long time. There is simply nothing like a natural flame to warm the human heart as well as the human dwelling. Using a wood burner is the only safe way to have that natural flame heat a home – and of course the burners themselves can look pretty fantastic too. When installing a wood burning stove one has the choice of a traditional beauty, made of iron and glass; a contemporary take on an older style; or even a super modern thing that fits into a recess in the wall like something from a sci fi movie. Just remember: beautiful, yes; efficient, yes; but self installing? No way. Get the experts in and you’ll have a beautiful source of heat and light for years.
