This is the time of year when we are all looking forward to some nice warm weather, balmy evenings and getting the BBQ out to enjoy the outdoors.
So, thinking about investing in a Wood Burner is the probably the last thing on your mind.
However, there are many reasons as to why this is best time of year to have your stove installed.
The weather here in Ireland is so unpredictable, you never know when the temperatures are going to drop even during the summer months. So, it is always good to be prepared by having your stove there for when it is needed. Good weather also makes the installation a lot simpler and more straight forward while severe conditions can prevent fitters from accessing the chimney and cause delays.
There are good deals to be had on stoves and showrooms are not so busy with a full selection available as demand is less than it would be during the winter months.
If you decide to go ahead with a stove installation, the lead time in the summertime is about 2 -3 weeks as opposed to the wintertime when you could be looking at a 6 -8 week wait because of demand and supply issues.
Build your own log store:
Find a source of where you are going to get your wood supply from. The new laws that have come into effect in Ireland from January 2022, bans the sale of wet wood (this is wood that has a high moisture content of anywhere between 20% to 60%). Kiln dried wood is the way to go. It is highly efficient and if you can make it a little project during the summer months to build up a log store, it will save you the stress and money before the cold winter comes in.
The most important part is to do your research first, to see what suits your needs. Take into consideration the size, colour, style, and layout of the room before you consider investing in a wood burning stove.
