Woodburning steel or cast-iron stoves are generally used an additional heat source in the home. They can heat one room or a small cluster of rooms, and when used like this they help have save energy being burnt by the conventional heat sources such as oil- or gas-fired central heating systems. By satisfying your thermostats, the boiler has no need or less need to come on, and therefore saving you money.
Of course, the price of wood varies from year to year and place to place, so it’s difficult to provide an average cost for running a woodburner. However, Gondwana Green Heat is a family business committed to sustainability as well as excellence and the highest standards of craftsmanship and beauty. Highly efficient sources of heat. The specific efficiencies of our models vary but some woodburners can achieve a rating of over 85%.
It is also possible to take your woodburning home a step further and use your stove to heat your water and even the whole house. We can install boilers that heat a thermal store for radiators or underfloor heating and hot water – see Gondwana Green Heat’s hot water storage pages for more details.
