It has been said you are never lonely if you have a wood burning stove, and it can be as loyal and comforting as a pet. It certainly needs the same constant attention but rewards you with love and warmth if looked after.
I removed my gas heating about 7 years ago and after a winter with an open fire I knew I needed a wood burning stove. With limited funds my first stove was homemade from an Air Compressor Tank and was oversized for the space on the hearth but my god did it heat the house. It was long enough to take slats from pallets with no cutting required and would burn all evening on a single load.
Fast forward to now and I heat my home with a nicer looking but just as warming commercial wood burning stove. I do miss being able to chuck in oversized pieces of wood but the ascetic trade off more than rewards for that.
A good wood burning stove and a little thought can actually supply heat to your whole home on it’s own, but add into that a back boiler and you have a truly excellent system. A back boiler takes some of the heat from the burning wood and heats a jacket of water at the rear of the stove. This heated water either circulates under convection or with the assistance of a pump. It can be passed into a hot water tank or through radiators distributing heat throughout your home.

It has also been said that a wood burning stove heats you many times over as you are never cold collecting, chopping and storing firewood but you are always rewarded with a greater warmth when you finally set it ablaze.
