Modern wood burning stoves have a clear role to play in our low carbon future.
A wood burning stove costs about a third of the price of electric heating and approximately 13% less than gas central heating for the average household under the current price cap. A modern stove will use less than a third of the amount of wood fuel compared to an open fire to give the same amount of heat. Wood fuel is renewable and sustainable, and can be locally sourced, helping to further reduce the carbon intensity of home heating.
Choosing a modern Ecodesign stove, such as a clearSkies certified model, is a highly efficient, cost effective, low carbon and low emission way to heat your home.
