Wood Burner

Weve just had a Termodinamik wood burner and radiators installed in our house and we're now all ready for winter, they tested it Friday night for us and it got so hot after just 10 minutes we had to open all the windows. It can run on olive pulp, which after months of research we found to be the cheapest way of heating a large house.

No more nights shivering beneath thick quilts with the electric blanket on, yipee!!!!!

Re: Wood Burner

We had our open fire last winter but because of the way they build them here it kept bringing smoke into the room, so to combat that we had to open a window slightly, kind of defeated the object of having a fire going! Good luck with yours though, they do look divine, especially when its bucketing it down with rain outside.

Re: Wood Burner

In our UK house we had a Hunter log burner fitted last year. Its a complicated system to install because its a solid wood burner, linked to the gas boiler. What it means is that the log burner heats the hot water and central heating, but if you go out and forget to stoke it up then the gas boiler automatically kicks in. It works fantastically well - especially since we have just been given 11 cut down tree trunks which I have spent the last week moving all ready for next winter - in fact after shifting that lot I am quite warm enough!

Re: Wood Burner

Sara 666,

We also had an open fire in our home in Turkey which leaked smoke into the lounge.

After trying several things to fix this, such as raising the chimney *via metal extensions* attaching a whirly hat (sorry don't know the correct term) and hightening the actual fire place, we eventually knocked the whole thing down and installed a soba.

We also have central heating but find the soba throws out so much heat that we don't need to use the central boiler until jan/feb.
The soba also gives you the option of cooking/heating water and works during powercuts! Something a central heating system won't do.

Re: Wood Burner

Charlotte,

we tried the whirly thing too amongst other things but it didn't work at all, now we've got a metal plate at the top front of the inside of the chimney, if that makes sense? We had the chimney made too wide and high according to the locals!

We thought about installing a soba but wanted something more powerful for the central heating. The only problem being we had ours installed outside the house (as its a monster of a machine) so only the 2 dogs and the week old adopted kitten will benefit when its on. We'll probably end up with a load of stray animals warming themselves too as our dog does like to hold the occasional party!
