As a result, we have produced this guide to multi-fuel stoves and energy efficiency.

Multi-fuel stoves and energy efficiency

Multi-fuel stoves are incredibly energy efficient when compared with other forms of heating your home. If you were to use your new stove as the main source of heating for your home, your carbon footprint, and use of natural resources could be less than relying on gas. As efficient as A grade gas boilers are, they are still using a finite natural resource. In comparison, multi-fuel stoves can burn wood logs, produced as part of a fully sustainable process. As long as you only buy logs that are produced by a provider that replants trees.

Alternatively, if you were to use your new stove as secondary heating, you need to compare this with other secondary heating options. These are either halogen heaters or electric heaters. And each of these options eat up fuel at a considerable pace. And neither are particularly safe. House fires can easily be started by either halogen heaters or electric heaters. Whereas a multi-fuel stove burning energy efficient logs, is much more suitable for the environment that electricity or gas.

Reduce your energy bills

Whether your stove is a primary or secondary source of heat, you will notice a drop in your regular fuel bill. Stoves are incredibly good at heating a space, in a short amount of time, and keeping it warm. And this means you wont have to put the heating on as frequently.
