Pellets and Wood Fires
Pellets are made of compressed sawdust and are very environmentally friendly because they burn efficiently, leaving behind very little ash. They can give the same ambience of a normal wood log fire but a cheaper and much better for our environment.
A cheaper alternative to a heating system
Spot heating involves placing a heating unit in each area to be heated. Options include gas, wood, or electric heating appliances, or a heat pump. These options can be cheaper but will not heat every area in your home unless you have multiple units.
Is gas heating the best option for you?
Modern gas appliances come in many designs and configurations so if they if they are chosen carefully they may be the most suitable choice for heating particular areas of your house.
Some flues are hidden and expel the by-products out of your home straight through your wall while others have a flue that goes straight up through the roof. Many modern gas appliances are thermostatically controlled so you can get exactly the temperature you want and others can be programmed to come on and off at different times of the day. This makes them very economical and you'll never have to worry about leaving the house and thinking "did I turn the heater off?"
Heat pumps may also be an excellent option for you
Heat pumps are very efficient when compared to other electricity powered heating systems however only when the right heat pump is applied to the right situation.
How do heat pumps work?A heat pump is effectively the reverse of a refrigerator. A refrigerator pumps the hot air inside the refrigerator out into the room so that only cold air is left behind. A heat pump takes the hot air outside the room and pumps it into the room using a fan similar to the picture on the left. No matter how cold the air is outside the house there is still some heat to be found in the air thanks to the energy from the sun. A heat pump simply takes what little heat there is outside and puts it inside so that you can enjoy it in the form of a warm and dry room. The reason heat pumps are so efficient is because they don’t actually turn cold air into hot air like traditional electric heaters do. Instead they simply use electricity to ‘move’ heat around i.e. from outside your home to inside.
