Focus On: Wood Burning Stoves

The clocks have gone back, nights are drawing in, and it’s the time of year to cosy up in front of a roaring log fire. Wood burning stoves are a quintessential feature of a charming traditional home and often feature in many of Pritchard & Company’s properties.

Wood burners are usually made of cast iron or steel and generate heat by burning wood fuel in an enclosed fire chamber. They can be highly effective at pumping out heat. Wood burners have been around for many years but have risen in popularity in recent times. They can be placed in most rooms of a house, and need to allow fumes and gases to be drawn away from the room and out through a chimney or flue.


  • Using wood burning stoves is a great way of cutting carbon emissions as logs are a low carbon source of fuel
  • Decorative and stylish with a homely ambience
  • Energy efficient heat source - an open fireplace is around 20-25% efficient, a wood burner can be as much as 80% efficient
  • Reliable and moneysaving - the wood used to fuel the stove is also much cheaper compared to electricity, gas or oil. An excellent alternative to using central heating throughout the house so they can also save you money on your energy bills
