    Default Wood Burning Stoves..

    ?Anybody got one,use one with just wood or do you burn both coal and wood.

    Doing a bit of research on cost of buying one ,installing one,and running one.

    Any advice?

    Hi mate, we too have been looking at buying one. My uncle has one in his farmhouse and they let out a hell of alot of heat. He burns wood and coal on his. As far as i know its fairly economical. Installation was easy as he already had a clear chimney.

    I've got one, and a couple of open fires too.

    Whilst I don't need to use it as we also have central heating, when I do I normally burn just wood on it. Having said that, when we bought the house and had no real heating, it burnt pretty much anything I put in it as a rubbish disposal method !

    Yes they do get pretty hot - I was even boiling up water for tea on top of it at the time. Last year, when doing DIY on the stairs and burning all the old railings I forgot just how much heat it did produce - then noticed the tropical fish tank about 6 feet away creaping into the red temperature zone........ have you ever seen anyone put ice in a tropical filter to cool them down !

    Building regs Document J apply, also watch out for what you burn in your area (smokeless zones etc).

    Some burn almost anything, some just wood, some wood and coal etc. the specs of the stove will tell you what is OK.

    Also a significant cost may be the chimney liner (if required)


    Chap at work just installed one, and got sign off from the council's building control yesterday. Cost him about £70 for the approval docs.

    I currently have a rayburn in my kitchen and am looking to fit a wood burner in my living room. Anyone have any knowledge of stoves with boilers? I can get hold of free wood, so running the heating and water off it seems a plan.

    It depends on the stove itself as to whether you can burn more than just wood on it. As said above, the spec of the stove will tell you.

    I currently have an open fire but have asked the landlord to fit a woodburning stove for efficiency (open fires arent that efficient as most heat just goes up the chimney!), he reccomended we used coal or 'coke' in it as its much better than wood. He did also mention that the wood that we currently burn (chopped down tree bits etc from the farm) wont burn very well in them as the wood needs to be pretty much FULLY dry for it to burn well in the wood burning stoves. Something to consider if the 'free wood' is not fully dried out stuff.
