Are solid fuel or woodburning stoves cheaper to run?
This question is asked frequently in our showroom. And it is a difficult one to answer, considering you have to factor in so many things. Are they cheaper? well firstly cheaper than what? Gas, electric, oil or LPG. If you have a free supply or are happy to forage for wood, the answer is simply yes.
Many houses require a liner for the chimney. This initial outlay for the liner and stove will typically cost between £1600 to £2000. If you then add the price of your fuel each month (if you are paying for it) then suddenly the costs against something like mains gas does not stack up so well. If running oil or LPG you would in most cases save more by switching to a woodburning stove. But again over a period of years. The factors to consider are the costs for your fuel against what you pay currently, The practicality of having a woodburning or multifuel stove and the cost of the installation and stove itself. A woodburning stove is a fantastic focal point to any room. It just has to be carefully considered if you are looking at it from a potentially money saving point of view.
