Give a Little Love to the Environment – and Your Wallet

20 Feb

February is the month of love, with Valentine’s Day having prompted many people to show some TLC to the special people in their lives. But if you care about the environment, investing in a wood burning stove is a loving, low-carbon gesture that can benefit your bank balance too.

Fossil fuels are not only environmentally unfriendly, they’re also unsustainable for the planet in the long term. By running your room heater, hot water system or even your home’s entire heating solution from a wood burning stove, you can help to cut back on the use of fossil fuels and support renewal energy instead.

You can save money by collecting and drying your own wood or support the local economy by buying wood from farmers in your area.

There’s an additional financial benefit to installing a wood burning, pellet burning or multi fuel stove in your home, if you live in France. The credit d’impôt is a tax credit that allows households to deduct from their income tax expenditure for retrofits to improve energy performance.

If you meet the conditions and can improve energy performance in a principal residence with a rate of 30%, you can claim for expenses of up to €8,000 for a single person or €16,000 for a couple.

However, be aware that you can’t just buy a stove and then select any trades person to install it – the work has to be carried out by the company supplying the materials and that company must be RGE qualified. At Stove-Sellers, not only are we qualified to install your stove, we also offer a wide range of appliances that offer efficiency ratings of at least 70% and above.

Talk to our experts today and find out how you can show your home some love this February.

How one Stove Could Heat your Entire Home

30 Jan

Did you know that you can power hot water boilers and central heating systems from wood burning stoves or cookers?

Edilkamin wood stove
Boiler stove installations
are more complicated than those required just for room heating and there are lots of very important factors to be considered. The right time to think about these is at the beginning, before you buy a stove and here at Stove Sellers, we have the expertise to ensure you make the right choice.

Boiler model stoves and cookers primarily come in one of two kinds: Those with an integral, or wraparound, boiler that forms part of the stove body itself and those with ‘clip-in’ boilers, which can be retro-fitted to most brands of stove.

It’s essential that your home has a system of pipework that has all the necessary safety cut-off devices, along with good gravity circulation. The stove’s size and heat output are also primary concerns. The ratio between direct room heating and the boiler output is proportional, so you need to choose the right model to power your boiler and/or radiators as well as warming the room in which it’s located.

Select too small a boiler and your radiators will not get hot enough; too large and you could find the boiler is running continuously as it boils off excess heat.

The key to getting it right is to seek expert advice from the outset. All wood burning stove installers in France need to be professionally qualified (RGE) to carry out this work, so many plumbers may not be properly qualified or insured. What’s more, if the installer isn’t qualified, their client will not be able to benefit from the 30% tax credit available for wood burning, multi fuel and pellet burning stoves.

Talk to us and we’ll ensure your new system is safe, reliable and efficient from the start.

What can you do to brighten up the dark winter days and ring the changes for 2019? Well, you could consider putting the spark back into your home by installing a wood burning, pellet burning or multi fuel stove.

But there’s no need to spend weeks redecorating – installing a beautiful new stove can transform a room instantly. Stoves provide a wonderful quality of warmth on a chilly day, but they also add character and charm that radiators simply can’t match.

Whether you have a large or small space, contemporary or traditional, glamorous or rustic – we have the stove that can become the flaming heart of your home.

Resolve to Embrace the Stove Lifestyle in 2019

26 Dec

Making New Year’s resolutions generally results in failure, unfortunately – it’s estimated that around 80% of these pledges will fall by the wayside in the first four weeks. But investing in a wood burning, multi fuel or pellet burning stove is a resolution that’s truly worth making.

Hunter Herald 14 Double SidedWe believe that when you buy a wood burning stove and you choose to manage the fuel supply yourself, the wood warms you three times over. First of all, there’s the physical effort required to cut the logs. Then, you have to carry the wood and stack it in your storage area – that’s warm work. Who needs a gym membership?

Finally, there’s the fantastic heat the stove gives off as you’re relaxing after a long, hard day. You can’t ask for a greater reward than that.

Looking to save money to take that trip of a lifetime? The economic benefits of having a wood burning, pellet burning or multi fuel stove are significant. For a start, if you’re carrying out restoration work on your property here in France, you could qualify for financial assistance from the Government. If the work is improving your property’s energetic performance and efficiency, you can claim a tax credit: Crédit d’Impôt Transition Energetique.

The credit is worth 30% of your expenditure on a stove so, chat to us about how to make sure you qualify. Who knows, you might even save enough money to buy that gym membership too!

Once your new stove is installed, you’ll then be saving money by no longer using gas or electricity to heat your space.

We’ve sold and installed hundreds of stoves across France, which means we can advise you on how to choose the right stove for your home. So, make a New Year’s resolution to embrace the stove lifestyle and you can look forward to a brighter, warmer 2019.
