  1. ADVANTAGES OF INSTALLING A MULTI FUEL STOVE
    They are economical and safer for the environment.
  2. ARE STOVES ENERGY EFFICIENT
    Yes, many modern stoves run at over 80% efficiency, where as an open fire will run at about 20-25% efficiency.
  3. ARE WOOD BURNING STOVES CARBON NEUTRAL - Yes, wood is the original carbon neutral fuel. It releases carbon dioxide when burnt and the amount given off is equal to that stored by the tree when growing. An interesting fact is that trees left to rot in the forest will produce a similar amount of carbon emissions released by burning.
  4. ARE WOOD BURNING STOVED CLEAN
    Modern multi fuel burners are very impressive in performance. The amount of smoke and ash produced is far less than an open fire.
