The BBC are running a feature on this topic next week, particularly looking at how the Norwegians do it. This is to be featured on the BBC1 Breakfast next Tuesday at 8:20am. The Norwegians were desperate to reduce their electric bills and started buying wood like never before.
Now thankfully in the UK we don’t often get temperatures below -25, but like the Norwegians, our utility costs are rising at quite a rate. It is possible to heat your house and reduce you bills, by installing a wood burning stove. Whether you install a boiler stove or a standard stove, when run efficiently the heat coming out from the stove can enable you to turn down the thermostat on your conventional boiler.
If you want to save money and help the environment, as the experience in Norway shows burning wood is a good way to go. Even more so investing in a biomass boiler can give you a financial return with the Renewable Heat Incentive.
Who doesn’t some cash back?
