Global warming has been mentioned a lot in the news recently. It seems that our winters are not going to be the same with more rain falling and the possibility of flooding being greater than it used to be.
It’s time for us to do what we can to help to protect our environment. We need to slow down or try to stop this dangerous situation from getting any worse. Burning fossil fuels is something that contributes to the damage that is happening to our ecology.
If you don’t want to burn gas or electricity, then you may wish to burn a sustainable fuel that is not categorised as a fossil fuel. This alternative fuel is wood or pellets. They are both popular for not only being environmentally friendly but because they are very affordable and compared to today’s energy bills should save you money.
When it comes to overheads of maintenance, there are differences between the wood burning stove and the pellet burning stove. First of all, the wood burning stove will need more attention than the pellet burning one. It will need some supervision when it’s lighting time. You will need to build a suitable stack of wood in order for the fire to get started initially.
The wood burning pellet stove is easier in that you can just add the pellets and then you’re ready to go. However, whichever stove you opt for, will mean that you should have the inspected regularly.
There are many different types of these stoves available. You should be able to find one that not only suits your personal taste in stoves, but also one that will suit the décor of your home. Some fireplaces are designed to be the centre of your décor and others are designed more for practicality. Whichever one you choose, be sure to ask how cost effective it is first. You’ll soon e saving and cutting back on your contribution to global warming.
