Beat the January Blues with a Wood Stove

03 January 2013 14:41

I don't know about you, but January is my least favourite month of the year. Not only are the nights still dark, but the excitement of Christmas is over and there is only the prospect of snow to look forward to. However, as a wood stove owner there is a benefit to this time of year, and that is sitting in with friends round the woodburner.

You cannot beat the ambience of a woodburner, I have had an open fire, and it is lovely, but our wood stove is certainly warmer and more efficient. It is a Woodwarm Fireview and has the ability to run our underfloor heating successfully as well as heating our lounge. This has significantly cut our gas bills and there is talk of upgrading the stove so that we might generate more heat to run upstairs heating as well! However, the wood stove was not installed for economic reasons (although it has made a significant contribution to our fuel bills!). It was bought to provide a focal point in the room. Our home is a 1960's bland property, at least it was until Bradley Stoves came along and transformed our lounge into a place of calm and beauty. Admittedly we helped with the oak engineering flooring (which seems to work better with underfloor water heating), but Bradley Stoves built us a chimney breast that gave our plain room character and then by adding in an oak mantlelpiece and a woodburner, the room was transformed.

So Bradley Stoves aren't just approved contractors for wood stoves. Of course there is nothing that Steve O'Reilly doesn't know about stoves, but they will help to utilise the beauty of a stove to add value to your home. The simple addition of a woodburner really does make a difference. It is a superb focal point and statement feature. And there are now so many stoves to choose from, and the days of sooty glass are long gone, today's wood stoves are efficient and clean. So whether you have a contemporary home like ours, or whether you have a more traditional setting then there is definitely a woodburner that will suit your environment.

Why not chat to Bradley Stoves today to see how they can help you to reduce your fuel bills and increase the value of your home.
