Oak Log Stores: Why You Need One
The need for somewhere dry and stylish to store loads of lovely logs is on the rise. This is due to the increasing popularity of wood-burning stoves and fireplaces.
The UK wood-burning stove boom started to heat up during 2008 and has been getting hotter ever since.
But why are wood-burning stoves now the must-have appliance for any home?
As the cost of living continues to rise, many families are considering how they can reduce their day-to-day expenses. And with the climbing costs of oil and gas, wood burning is an increasingly attractive option. And with a stove, you don’t even need a chimney.
Did you know that wood-burning stoves can provide five times as much heat as a gas or electric fire?
We’re all becoming more aware of our carbon footprint and the impact our lives have on our planet. As a carbon-neutral fuel, burning wood is a way we can all help to make a difference as it’s the most ecologically friendly way to heat a home.
And with a wood burning stove, you’re sure to stay toasty as a whopping 85% of the heat generated radiates around your room. Unlike fireplaces, where as much as 70% of the heat (literally!) goes up the chimney.
Let’s face it, there is nothing nicer than loading logs onto a fire and watching the flames flicker. It offers a deep, primal sense of satisfaction and comfort. As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, what’s more emotionally sustaining then snuggling up in front of a wood burning stove? Who doesn’t love the cosy crackle of a real fire?
With around 200,000 families choosing a wood burner to heat their homes each year and a 60% increase in installations, this trend shows no signs of burning out anytime soon.
But don’t forget, with all that wood, you’re going to need somewhere dry, safe and stylish to store it.
