Can my solid fuel stove run with my gas heating system?
Allgas Heating, Bathrooms and Plumbing can also link a solid fuel stove to your existing gas or oil heating system. This will not only lead to savings on your gas bills, but will also increase your energy independence and choice in the face of rising gas costs. Multi-fuel burning stoves give you even more choice and financial maneuverability.
Are there any grants or tax incentives?
You may be able to obtain a tax credit for installing a solid fuel stove in your home under the Home Renovation Incentive Scheme (HRI). For full details see grants and tax credits.
Do you have any tips for using solid fuel stoves?
Try to use dry wood and don’t burn branches that have recently fallen from trees as they have too high a moisture content. Wet wood will tar up your stove and flue. This will block up the chimney in time. Try to build up a supply of wood to allow it to season dry out completely. Similarly don’t burn painted wood as this will also tar up your stove and blacken the glass.
