Gas Price Increases

See the wood through the trees and make the switch to a Wood Burning Stove!

The recent price increase in the supply of gas has certainly been unwelcome news and although the suppliers are advising us that it is not linked with an increase in profits, consumers all over the country are finding the increase difficult to deal with especially in the current economic climate.

From 23rd November 2013 British Gas will be increasing their rates by an average of 9.2% for dual-fuel customers.  It is expected that this increase will affect almost eight million homes across the UK.  Gas prices alone are expected to be a massive increase of 8.4%.

British Gas are not the only ones, all the big energy providers are following suit.  SSE alone has announced an 8.2% increase from 15 November 2013.

The energy companies have announced that this will equate to an average of £123 per household, therefore it can be understandable the frustration in the voices of the public.  These prices are rising faster than the average income and consumers are looking for ways in which they can keep these prices down.

The answer is to purchase a wood burning stove.  It is time to take action as we chop our way to a fantastic alternative.  And the verdict is that a wood burning stove is a far cosier way to heat your home this winter and also is proven to keep your energy bills down.  Do not put up with the ever increasing energy bills because they will only get worse.  Take action now.

For those that have already made the switch advise that they have already noticed financial and environmental benefits.  The only downside is that you may have to chop pieces of wood up at 7am in the morning before dashing to work.  But this is a small price to pay when it is possible to cut your bill by £250 a year.  In all honestly you don’t need to track down your local forest for wood as plenty of the DIY stores in your local area have pre made bags of wood ready for you.

You can leave the stove running all day long and it will keep your house toasty.  It does not have a lingering smell that is common with coal fires.

Nothing beats coming home after a stressful day at work and sitting in front of the wood burning stove relaxing with the family.  Plus you have the comfort that you are not paying your gas company a penny for the privilege. Take it a step further and use your wood burning stove to heat water.

Once you have made the decision to switch to a wood burning stove you will not regret it.  There is nothing quite like it.  If you were to live in France, the vast amount of the population have already seen the wood through the trees as they are already heating their homes with wood and reaping the huge benefits it offers.

Economically and financially it makes sense to make the switch.
