For many rural areas of Sussex, heating the home can not only be expensive, but also logistically difficult. Without a gas grid, people rely on liquid fuels such as oil or propane. However, many have been able to reduce the expense and logistical issues by installing wood burning stoves Sussex. With Sussex being a naturally densely wooded area – it also lends itself to being the perfect location for fuelling wood burning stoves.
Wood Burning Stoves Sussex – Why a Wood Burner?
Many rural and urban properties throughout Sussex already have open fireplaces, so why change to a wood burner? An open fireplace loses 80% of the heat produced up its chimney – and when not lit, an open fireplace chimney becomes the main contributor to heat loss in your home. Wood burning stoves however, reverse this issue with only 20% of the heat being lost up the chimney. Also the chimney is sealed to the rest of the room, further reducing potential heat loss.
Wood Burning Stoves Sussex – Installation & Safety
Installation is usually quick and unobtrusive, especially if a chimney is already in place. If not, a flue installation will be required for the wood burner. Brighton Wood Burners provide this service with minimal fuss and disruption.
In addition to looking great, wood burning stoves Sussex are a far safer and cleaner option to that of an open fireplace. By closing the door, units are safe to leave unattended when you leave the house or go to bed.
