But how would you feel if I were to tell you there was an alternative that could not only save your well-earned cash, but create a sustainable future for energy?

What are the advantages?

This is for your own piece of mind and ensures you they are trained, approved and qualified to carry out your installation. S & R Stoves welcome you to ask questions because they want you to get the information you need. It is proven that energy bills will decrease over time, saving the average UK household up to £300 on their annual energy bills. Wood burners cost around 4p per KWh to run compared to gas, which back in 2011, was at 6p per KWh.

 People are likely to be concerned that a wood burner is only fitted in one room and therefore the rest of the home will not warm. Opening doors and allowing the heat to rise and circulate could allow your home to warm without the use of the central heating. Not only are you saving your money, you are helping to create a sustainable source of energy for the future. Using gas requires the use of fossil fuels (a non-renewable energy source), which we are forever told, are running out. By switching to a wood burner, we are allowing ourselves to use renewable energy in the form of wood. As long as we can obtain fuel from a sustainable source then we are helping the planet as well as ourselves.
