Stoves In the United Kingdom

There is nothing as memorable as stories shared around a burning charcoal stove. Long ago, during cold seasons, people sat around a burning stove to keep warm as well as catch up with each other. Stories were shared between family members and friends. Sitting around a fireplace is not old fashioned! Talk of camping, the nature lover’s heart skips. Coal or charcoal stoves are assets for camping groups. Imagine setting up a bonfire at four in the morning? Isn’t that cool? So memorable!

Wood is a renewable energy resource. In the United Kingdom, the Forestry Commission encourages the planting of trees to extend the available woodlands. This is adequate support for wood fuel. Wood is cheap when planted in plenty by people with the free land. The owners of trees get wood from their property hence saves on the cost of fuel. Wood as a supplemental fuel to heat your home is the cheapest option compared to electricity and gas. Fluctuating gas prices make gas expensive to many.

With the new technology, various types of stoves have been invented. Gas and electricity stoves are overtaking the coal stoves. Gas and electricity stoves are more economical, portable and convenient. The gas stoves are easily adjustable in terms of the temperature required. They have a dial which is used to regulate temperature, unlike the electric stoves which have to cool first to distribute heat evenly. Good cooks prefer Gas stoves because of their right heat.Gas stoves are not dependent on electricity in case of shortage in electricity, the stoves are useful.
