HOW WOOD­BURN­ERS ADD UP

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

The cost of burn­ing wood per kw hour is 4p com­pared with 5p for gas or oil and 15p for elec­tric­ity.

Around 175,000 wood­burn­ers are now in­stalled each year, which is five times more than in 2007.

The cost of a stove varies from £550 to £10,000.

There has been a 31 per cent in­crease in the num­ber of in­stall­ers since 2007.

The num­ber of chim­ney sweeps has grown, with 70 new mem­bers reg­is­tered with the Chim­ney Sweeps As­so­ci­a­tion so far this year.
