Spring may be here but the weather is still bitterly cold outside and heating your home efficiently and quickly is a real priority.
If you are considering installing a new heating stove or perhaps, upgrading a new model, now is the perfect time to start looking.
With so many stove and heating models on the market these days you will be literally spoilt for choice.
There are some important considerations you should bear in mind when searching for a new stove. Firstly, decide whether you wish to install a small stove unit or a larger range - if space is a priority and you won’t be using the new unit for cooking, then stick with a smaller stove.
You must also decide on whether you want to install a solid fuel unit, an oil unit or one which is dual fuel - where heating can be switched from solid fuel stove heating to utilise an oil heater boost for the radiators.
Before you go to your local heating merchant ensure you know who many radiators you want to heat from your stove. Too small a stove and you won’t be able to efficiently heat your home. Also ensure you bring an estimate of the sizes of the rooms you wish to heat so your heating specialist can ensure the unit you purchase is efficient and will suit your needs.
Some heating merchants offer a full fitting service for your new purchase and if they don’t, they will be able to recommend qualified fitters who will be able to install and service your stove.
