Six Reasons Why Choosing a Multi-fuel Stove Makes Sense

29 July, 2014

W hen was the last time you enjoyed the luxury of sitting in front of a glowing stove?

There's nothing quite like the snug feeling of relaxing with a glass of wine, listening to the crackling sound of a warm fire in the background.

Sought after by style-conscious professionals and the likes of Lily Allen, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Sarah Beeny, stoves have seen a two hundred per cent sales increase in the past few years.  They are fast becoming the new must-have item. 

Purchasing a stove used to mean having to resort to wood-only stoves.  Thankfully, times have changed. 

Read on to find out the six reasons why choosing a multi-fuel stove makes sense.

Multi-fuel stoves give you choice

Complete control is what attracts most people to choose a multi-fuel stove over a single, wood burning one. 

You have the flexibility of opting for wood, smokeless coal or peat or turf briquettes to fuel your fire.

You can make the decision, experimenting with different fuels, until you find the perfect one to suit your home.

Multi-fuel stoves are more efficient

Regain power from greedy energy suppliers .You can save around £300 a year on your energy bill by choosing to switch to a multi-fuel stove.

Multi-fuel stoves are more efficient that an open fire where eighty per cent of the heat escapes up the chimney.

Smokeless coal lasts forty per cent longer than household coal.  You'll be saving even more money, as you'll be using less coal.  It also burns hotter than wood, making your home deliciously warm and welcoming.

Multi-fuel stoves are better for the environment

If you live in a smoke control area, you'll need to use smokeless fuel, which is a great choice anyway.  Smokeless coal emits twenty five per cent less CO2 and eighty per cent less smoke than normal coal.  Much more environmentally friendly!

Multi-fuel stoves are cleaner!

Multi-fuel stoves are also much less smoky and safer than open fires.  You don't have to deal with ash getting all over your expensive carpet or clothes, or risk the possibility of sparks flying out of the fire. 

You can release your inner hunter-gather

Let's face it; collecting and burning wood is fun. 

A multi-fuel stove gives you the choice of being able to burn wood, as well as smokeless coal or briquettes.

Wrap up warm, pull on your boots and head out into the great outdoors.  It's romantic, great exercise and you'll be doing your bit for the environment too.  Collecting dry wood prevents it from rotting on the ground and releasing CO2 into the air. 

Multi-fuel stoves make memories

There's no denying that homes with stoves really are something special.  Create hundreds of happy memories of family gatherings and Christmas day mornings spent around your stove.

Imagine toasting the New Year with friends and family around the fire, sipping mulled wine.

Picture curling up with your latest novel, a hot cup of tea and your stove gently purring away in the background.  The chilly, miserable British weather locked away outside. 

Get set for a cosy and romantic winter.  You won't ever regret investing in a multi-fuel stove.  In fact, you'll wonder how you ever managed without it. 

IMPORTANT: All of our stoves are fitted by a qualified HETAS installer.  You can have complete peace of mind that your stove is safe, robust and will be working at full capacity.
