Types of Wood Burning Stove
Offering the perfect balance between practicality and style, between cosy warmth and visual appeal, a wood burning stove can be a fantastic addition to any home. Just imagine curling up in front of a real fire – nothing can match the simple pleasure of seeing a hot embers and real flames through a traditional or contemporary glass-fronted wood burning stove. It’s an attractive and efficient way of providing warmth and comfort while providing a stunning focal point for any room.
Wood burners come in many styles and sizes, so there’s bound to be one that matches your requirements perfectly. Space, room size and application are all important factors for consideration when you choose the right stove for your home.
Large Wood Burning Stove
Remember that having a stove in your home is about more than just providing a beautiful feature piece – it needs to be functional as well. Spacious rooms and properties require large wood burning stoves for them to be effective sources of heat. If you’re choosing a stove for a larger home you need to ensure that it is the requisite size to provide warmth efficiently.
We have many years of experience in providing wood burning stoves to expansive houses, so we have the expertise to help you choose a stove that’s perfect for you. Speak to a member of our team about the kind of stove that might be appropriate for you and we can help you find a variety of options to suit your needs.
Small Wood Burning Stove
Smaller properties can look both elegant and inviting with a small wood burning stove as a key feature of a room. Smaller stoves can still kick out plenty of heat to easily warm a room to leave you feeling cosy and warm.
It’s a common problem that people will end up overestimating their warming needs and buying a stove that’s actually far too big for their property. This not only creates the problem where the room is overpowered by the size of the stove but also that it’s not especially practical as it simply pumps out too much heat. We have years of experience in providing stoves that are ideal for the property they are placed in.
With a range of sizes available, we can find one to slot perfectly into your home to add to the aesthetic value. Whatever your requirements we can help you find a small wood burning stove that’s exactly what you are looking for.
It’s important to have a basic knowledge of the right type of wooden logs to burn in your wood burning stove. Logs need to be ‘seasoned’ so that they are dry enough to produce optimum heat. Unseasoned or ‘green’ wood contains too much moisture and should be avoided; burning this type of wood is likely to cause damage to both your stove and chimney. Soft woods such as pine burn fast and with a vigorous flame, while the long hot burn of a hardwood such as oak or ash will give you many hours of prolonged heat output.
At Wakefords, our expert team can advise on different types of wood to help you understand which logs are the right wood for your wood burning stove; we can even help you find a reputable supplier of logs for your stove.
