Investing in Your Home-Saving Money and Doing Your Bit

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2012) - The summer is coming to an end. Whilst the sporting triumphs witnessed during July and August helped the nation temporarily forget the current economic issues well all face, we're back to cold harsh reality.

What's more, after the wettest summer on record all we can look forward to is the temperatures dropping and the need to heat our homes amidst rising energy prices. But that's when Brits become savvy and look and the best ways to really invest in our homes.

A wood burning stove represents a real investment for your home, offering an affordable alternative to non-renewable fossil fuels, such as coal and gas; there are also the environmental benefits too.

Emergence of wood burning stoves

Wood burning stoves have seen a steady increase in recent years, despite the downturn of economies around the world.

In fact sales of Charnwood Stoves in Ireland are still on the rise, regardless of the drop in consumer spending; with the main reason behind this, the view that it represents a real investment for the future.

Fashion has also played its part too, with this kind of stove becoming one of the most desirable piece of equipment for on-trend living.

The benefits

Wood has always been the most popular traditional source of fire and is still looked on as the most economic energy source. A wood burning stove burns more cleanly and efficiently than an open fire, saving you money in the long run; and is a more cost-effective solution than relying on your central heating or boiler to heat your home.
