Nowadays we are seeing the multi fuel and wood burning stoves are becoming more and more popular the world over. With the increase in the prices for gas and electricity as seen in the present times, the wood burners and multifuel stoves are indeed the next best source of heat to the home. They are available in a variety of models and are as well very competitive as well. Multifuel and the wood burning stoves have the advantage of heating up much faster and cool down with equal speed and pace which is yet another advantage of having them in the home. A good multifuel stove is made up of steel or cast iron with usually cast iron door bars.
One material which will be known to be quite good at retaining heat for a long period of time is cast iron as such providing heat after the fire dies, even though it takes a long time to heat as well. To reduce the risk of the stove cracking, you will need to have more room for the area around the stove for the air to circulate as compared to the normal steel stove. The air supply is always at the bottom of the stove and is always made a sliding one or a spinning one for operation.
The air supply is in most cases left open when the stove is being lit so as to allow in as much air as is required for the lighting of the stove. Once the fire is lit and established, then you can begin to turn down the fire and let it now tick steadily. The fires will go blazing for a time of about two or four hours always depending on the seasoning and the quality or type of wood used. Depending on the load size and the fuel quality, these will as well burn on smokeless fuel for times between 6 an 12 hours.
Wood burning stoves are very good as they are known to be rather carbon neutral since they are known to only give off as much carbon only as the wood had taken in growth. With a wood burning stove, you will be able to burn a lot of different kinds of wood. Well seasoned wood will as well be very good as they will be quite ideal for they will emit less smoke and be very good at environmental conservation.
The wood burning stoves are as well good at running the central heating and domestic hot water boilers. They can be possibly connected to the existing ones.
