What are the advantages of each type of stove?

People  should take into account the size of the room and get the proper advice  from an experience stove shop who will help you  make the right choice.

A real flame picture / High efficiency / Radiant heat / Nice ambience: stoves bring a homely feel and allow the homeowner to have a lit appliance that can be both efficient and safe.

Gas stoves – these give off a constant heat and they don’t create any mess. Theyre very easy to control, they require very little maintenance and they are environmentally friendly. We offer a complete range of Dru gas stoves – from the end of March, we will have a good range of gas stoves for you to see first hand.

Solid fuel stoves – are high in efficiency and have low running costs. They look like a real fire and they have that attractive odour of burning wood.

Pellet stoves – are highly efficient, easy to operate, fast to start and clean. They are also smoke free, they provide constant heat and they are extremely eco-friendly.

Electric stoves – are 100% efficient. There’s no need for a chimney, they make no smoke or fumes and they need hardly any maintenance.

What is the installation process? How long does it take?

The Eco Home Solutions team of certified fitters is fully trained and insured. Before installation, a house survey is a good idea. The surveyors will take you through all steps of the installation process.

What are the latest trends in stoves for home heating?

The whole market is changing quite a lot at the moment. In the past, people would buy a stove purely for the heating benefits they delivered, but now they are looking at the cosmetic benefits too. More and more people are choosing a stove based on functionality but also on how it looks.

Wood is more readily available now and this is making wood burning stoves a more attractive proposition. Lots of people are now choosing appliance which have what we call a ‘balance flue. Basically, this means that the stove draws air from outside the home, not the room itself. This has the added advantage of no draughts.

Some newly built houses don’t have a chimney. For these home owners, there are still wood burning stove options, but many people are opting for gas heating. Either way, we are finding that the market for stoves is very strong at the moment.

If you have any further questions about our products or service, we will be very happy to answer them. Call us at any time during office hours: Eco Home Solutions – 046 9436702

 

Pellet Stoves – are these the perfect home heating solution?

Wood pellet stoves are a highly economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional forms of home heating such as oil or gas.

Unlike traditional wood burning stoves which burn wood blocks only, or multi-fuel stoves which burn wood, coal or briquettes, pellet stoves burn wood pellets only. Wood pellet burners provide all of the warmth and comfort of the traditional forms of home heating but at a much lower cost to you and the environment.

Pellet Stoves Fuel

Wood pellets are made from compacted sawdust or other waste material from the wood industry. Because they are made from waste wood, they are entirely renewable as as such economically friendly. Wood pellets are extremely dense and very low in moisture, therefore burning with an extremely high combustion efficiency.

 Other benefits of pellet stoves

These stoves are very user friendly. Many come with automatic ignition and can be programmed to control output. Our range of Palazzetti stoves can be programmed for a day or even a week using a phone app or remote control.

Unlike traditional stoves which need to be restocked by hand these stoves are fueled via a hopper. Once the hopper is filled the pellets are fed into the stove as required. Depending on the size of the hopper the stove can operate continuously for 12 to 30 hours.

Wood pellets are cheap when compared to other sources of fuel. They are clean and easy to store. Please contact us at Eco HomeSolutions for up to date pricing on wood pellets.

Carbon neutral: is it time for you to invest in a pellet stove?

It is comforting to know that when you purchase your pellet stove, alongside all the other benefits, you are making no negative impact on the environment. Contact us to find out how you can benefit from a wood pellet stove or other wood burning stove. Call Eco Home Solutions today: 046 943 6702
