When customers ask me about the impact our stove products might have on the environment, it’s always great to remind them that wood is actually a carbon-neutral energy source.
In the course of their lifetime, trees release the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as they absorb.
Which means that wood burning is a much better for the environment than gas-fired central heating, for example. And when stoves use recycled timber waste, the benefits increase massively – as the growing number of Irish Palazzetti stove owners will testify.
Palazetti, one of Italy’s leading stove manufacturers, produces some of the most environmentally friendly products on the market, and I am very pleased that we can offer a full range of their products to our customers.
The Palazzetti stove burns eco-friendly wood pellets which are made from compacted sawdust and wood shavings from timber mills. As by-products, wood pellets are a sustainable and highly renewable energy source. Over 90% of the energy in wood pellets is converted into heat.
Because Palazetti pellet stoves are sealed, using combustion air from outside, they are an ideal product for Irish homes – suitable for installing in bathrooms and bedrooms as well as living rooms. Another advantage of being a sealed unit is that the stove does not draw cold air into the room.
The other attractive feature of Palazetti pellet stoves lies in their minimalist design. These stoves provide all the heating and comfort of a larger fireplace unit, but it can be installed in a variety of places around the home.
Despite all the benefits of Palazzetti stoves as an attractive and practical heating solution, I appreciate that they will not be for everyone. If you enjoy the sight of burning logs in the comfort of your lounge room, you might be better advised to look at some of our other ranges. We stock a wide variety of stoves from leading brand Chesney, Lacunza, Spatherm, DG and Dru.

There are so many great benefits to having a warm and cosy wood burning stove in your house. As well as this, you will almost certainly find that it is a great way to save money on your winter heating bills.
There are actually quite a few things to consider before buying a stove. Prices vary greatly and there are so many different types and styles, that it can be a bit of a minefield. The best thing is to call EcoHomeSolutions for a chat, or if you are local, just drop into our showroom in Trim town centre.
What type of wood burning stove is best for your home?
The answer to this question depends on quite a few things. Firstly, what type of fuel you want to burn. As we point out in another article, there are just so many advantages to wood pellet stoves, although for one reason or another, this may not prove to be the ideal solution for your needs.
The great thing about burning wood, of any variety, is that it is a fuel which is carbon neutral. What this means is that the carbon it takes in while it is growing as part of a tree, offsets the carbon it produces while it is burning.
Another consideration is how much room you have in your home. If you have a log burning stove, you’ll need somewhere dry to store logs – we estimate this to be at least 2 cubic metres of space. Logs also need to be seasoned. What this means, essentially, is that all the sap and moisture in the logs needs time to dry out. How long depends on the type of wood, but it is usually around two years.
Also, how much of your home do you want the stove to heat? The whole house, or just one or two rooms?
