The question is often asked, can spending money on a wood burning stove save you money in the long run? The simple answer, is yes.
Though buying a wood burning stove may seem like a large expense at the outset, as time passes it is likely that you will begin to see the price of your energy bills decrease. With British winters seemingly getting colder and colder, we often find ourselves having the heating on to heat our homes for months and this often results in a hefty energy bill.
The exact amount of money saved when using a wood burning stove will differ depending on the size of your home, the type of wood burning stove and the amount you use it but on a whole it is found that they are a cost-effective addition to most homes.
Why Do Wood Burning Stoves Save Money?
There are a number of factors that combine to suggest that having a wood burning stove can save you money, for example:
– Wood burning stoves are powered by wood, something that is easy to buy, easy to store and can be purchased in bulk at a relatively low cost. Furthermore, if you are one of the lucky few who have their own supply of wood not only does a wood burning stove save you money by coming with no cost, it is also a great way to reuse the wood you would usually get rid of.
– When the weather is getting a little chilly but not cold enough to turn the entire house’s central heating on, simply turning on a wood burning stove for a short while can take the chill off; all without you needing to turn the heating on and add to that bill.
– It is a lot easier to keep track of the amount of fuel you use and the spending this incurs, which can prevent you being in for a shock when your usual heating bill rolls around.
