Heating with Wood – Versatile and Clean
Wood can do more than heat a single room. Wood stoves can heat water so you can store surplus heat in a hot water tank. You can use modern wood pellet stoves to come on and off automatically, heat your room to a set temperature, and even communicate with your mobile phone.
Boiler stoves can be used to store extra heat in water storage tanks, for domestic hot water next morning. You will need to consult with your plumber, as connecting a wood fired boiler stove is not necessarily straightforward. Also, remember that firewood is not as inexpensive as you think. If you have to but it in, it will be as expensive as oil, and a lot more than natural gas.
