Open fires... Are you mad? We were...
It seems ridiculous to us that; in modern times, with the economic climate, high fuel prices and depleting resources, anybody would consider opening up a hole in the roof of their home to burn fuel in the way our ancestors did 500 years ago. Just for the romance?
Wood burning stove technology is now achieving up to 85% efficiency. In real terms, for every 8 logs we source from the woodland, used on an open fire, there could be 8 good wood stoves that each give the same amount of energy of that 1 open fire. Madness!
As you can see from the image gallery above, we have installed most types of open fires over the years. Our chimney knowledge came in useful to help these fuel guzzling monsters suck most of the energy up the chimney, polluting the local environment. Even when not in use they continue to rapidly pull warm air from the house.
We no longer offer our services, fuels or products for open fires and haven't done for over 12 years.
