Wood is the oldest form of heating fuel but has been superseded over the last 300 years by coal, gas, oil and electric, (itself produced either by the burning of fossil
fuels or by nuclear fission).
Our gas and oil supplies are increasingly imported and the majority comes from some of the most politically
unstable parts of the planet.
Many people are choosing to return to wood fuel to
provide some or all of their space and water heating
needs. Not surprisingly, sales of wood burning stoves
have increased by 120% over the last year.
