Energy bills are rising at an unprecedented rate, and whether homes are fuelled by gas or electric, it is almost certain that there will be far cheaper ways to heat and fuel the home.
Firstly, it may make sense for some to utilise solar panels on their home, but this can be a costly undertaking and may not suit all homes. However, for those with the expendable income to pay out for such an addition, the benefits can be great.
Whether solar panels are chosen or not, a change to the way in which you heat your home will almost certainly bring financial benefits. For example, wood burning stoves can often be run for next to nothing as there is always a great deal of spare wood lying about for people to use in fires. Whether old pallets are cut up or even if you simply source excess wood from friends, many people will be able to easily stockpile fuel for wood burning stoves without it costing them a penny.
Under floor heating can also reduce the cost of heating a home, but woodburners add a great deal of extra comfort that the likes of under floor heating simply can’t compete with.
Woodburners will also be far cheaper to install in the first place when compared to the likes of under floor heating and solar panels. They will also be far less hassle to put into a home and add aesthetic benefits too, as opposed to the potential incongruity that can be seen with solar panels.
So if you are looking for the best way to cut the cost of fuelling your home, the very best solution might well be to start using wood to heat your home. With the costs of gas and electricity rising dramatically year-on-year, there has never been a better time to find an alternative power source.
