Multi fuel stoves have recently gained popularity. And with good reason. Who doesn’t like to sit in front of an open fire, particularly on a cold winter’s day? As well as looking great though and giving your home a nice comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, there are many other great benefits. If you are still on the fence about whether multi fuel stoves are right for you or not, we will look at some of the great benefits you can gain from investing in one.
Option to Use Different Fuels
By far the biggest benefit to gain from investing in a multi fuel stove is the fact that there are all types of multifuel stoves with the option to heat your stove using a wide range of fuels. This means you can use the best that suits your own specific needs and requirements. So, whether you are interested in using eco-friendly solid fuels, smokeless fuels or logs – you can with a multi fuel stove. Because of the flexibility they offer you, you are not tied to any utility company, their services or prices.
Using solid fuel heating reduces condensation. Therefore, unlike other heating systems, you do not have the problem of sudden changes in temperature because there is no on or off facility. This means that, in turn, you do not have the resulting mould and damp issues that come from condensation problems.
Off the Grid Heating
It can be difficult for people who live in outlying or rural areas to adequately heat their property, especially if you have no access to a mains gas supply. Buying a multi fuel stove is a perfect solution. It means you do not have to go through any hassles with trying to get connected. This is also ideal for people who are looking to stay off the grid and don’t want to be tied to one of the big profit-making energy corporations.
Cost efficiency and energy efficiency are two of the things you probably are and if you aren’t, should be looking for when deciding on the right heating system for your home. As solid fuels burn at much higher temperatures and for a much longer duration than other heat sources. A multi fuel stove burning in a lounge will not only warm the living room, but the surrounding rooms and the ones about it too.
With other heating sources, there are problems with ventilation. However, with multi fuel stoves this is not an issue. Chimneys connected to stoves are always pulling fresh air into your house and also removing polluted air that might be present in the atmosphere.
Even in a Disaster You Will Still Have Heating
Multi fuel stoves are completely disaster proof. Even when there are storms that cut the local power source feeding into your neighbours, when you have a stove, you will still have a nice and warm fire to snuggle up in front of.
