Autumn is drifting quietly in….
As the seasons turn so our thoughts turn to the warmth of a winter fireside, or better still, the glowing comfort of a well-fired stove, purring quietly on the hearth, radiating warmth and that sense of well-being that comes with being snug indoors, safe from the worst of the weather.
Few of us can resist the magic of a warm fireside...
Yet, while a blazing hearth is attractive, a stove can be much more efficient at heating your home, providing a focal point as well as an excellent source of heat. Traditional stoves date back to the 18th century; an early version of the wood burner was designed by American statesman Benjamin Franklin and similar models became popular in the forested areas of Europe and North America. And now, stoves are enjoying a revival, thanks to environmental concerns and rising fuel costs.
Most stoves have glazed doors to show the warm glow inside, some are double-sided to be placed in the centre of a room or between two rooms, others will heat water or radiators for your home, while the versatile range will also cook your meals.
Important considerations when choosing a stove include heat output, installation costs and the position of the stove in your home – free-standing or set into a fireplace. Expert advice is essential, and that’s where we come in, to help you to make the right decisions for your home.
After all, stove owners don’t see the seasonal fall in the outdoor temperature as a cause for depression. They can look forward to a season of warm moments indoors, both from heat and the cosy atmosphere.
Winter doesn’t have to be cold.
Here at the Woodburning Centre we can help you with stoves, fireplaces, surrounds, accessories and advice. Since 1996 we have been supplying and installing fireplaces and stoves throughout County Cork and Munster.
We have continued to develop our showroom at The Old Mill, Drimoleague, which has allowed us to extend the range of products we can offer to our customers from the best of the leading manufacturers.
We believe that wood is a fuel with a future; we’ll be pleased to talk to you about it.
