Spring Newsletter 2016

Spring 2016 Newsletter 

Well winter wasn’t so bad was it?  For us in the south it was surprisingly mild, and hardly any snow, so different to previous winters.   We haven’t finished with our wood burner yet; we keep it ticking away all day as the evenings are still a little fresh.  Our central heating, run by our faithful wood burning cooker has been laid off already. Hopefully there will be no surprises to come!

Now is the time to think about booking your chimney sweep for a spring clean of your flue to leave it free of any tarry deposits and help extend its life.   
  • Clean up your stove after the last fire of the season making sure there is no possibility of having damp ash lingering all summer.   
  • We tend to leave the air inlets open during the hot/humid season.    
  • I also give ours a light covering of stove blacking to bring it back to showroom appearance. Try HOTSPOT, which is available from Amazon. 
  • Check the fireboards, they should give you a good number of years’ service, cracks will appear, but that’s normal and won’t affect performance, but make sure you haven’t been rough when popping in the logs, and that they are still intact. 

For those who would like to buy a new wood burning stove, now is the time to start the process. At this time of year, the lead in time is less and it’s easier to have one fitted in good weather rather than having to dodge rain or snow showers in November or December.  It’s very difficult to think of next winter, but it will be here before we know it.

Many people making enquiries ask the same question, why buy a Wood burning stove and why Woodwarm?

For centuries fireplaces have been the focus of every home, providing light, warmth and entertainment that our forefathers worshipped in yore. Fires dispel the gloom of cold damp winter afternoons and bring warmth and cheer to the heart of the home.

An open fire has historically been associated with a warm chimney and, on testing, it can often be shown that 90% of the heat from the fire can be lost to the chimney and the outside air. Woodwarm stoves are safe, single self-contained units which eliminate the waste and put the heat back to the room where it belongs.

All Woodwarm stoves feature an excellent air wash system. After circulating the stove, pre heated air flushes down over the double glazed door keeping the glass perfectly clean at all times, even at low temperatures. Superior clean burn efficiency means that not only is more heat achieved on less fuel, but combustion products in the flue are also reduced, causing fewer flue problems. Reduction in pollution combined with more efficiency creates a really environmentally friendly device.

Woodwarm Stoves... if you have one, you will probably buy another one. (As have 2 of our first ever customers at Woodwarm Stoves France this Spring) If you don't have one, here is why we think you should!

Woodwarm have dedicated over 30 years of production to their customers. They pride themselves on the ability to respond to both customer needs and government legislations while using cutting edge technology to ensure reliability and workmanship throughout.   They have therefore become a market leader in Clean Burning Wood and Multi Fuel heating.
Why Woodwarm? They are not the cheapest fire this they are the first to admit, they cannot compete with the mass-produced Chinese market, and so because of this they won’t. Some of their fires are still in use some 30 years on, what else do you have that's still working well at 30 years old? They know how to keep the glass clean, they know how to get the maximum use from your fuel, they are unrivalled in boiler, canopy, fuel, colour, leg, handles, plinth and pedestal options hand made in the UK. You will buy a house for comfort and as an investment, your choice in a stove should be the same.    

Here at Woodwarm Stoves France we can supply these wonderful stoves throughout France and install them within a radius of 2 hours travelling from our base north of Carcassonne. We do however have a small network of installers in other regions and have recently joined forces with Stove Studio in Normandy to offer reciprocal installation services in each other’s 2-hour radius of work.  If you want a Woodwarm Stove, then we will try to help you find an installer if we cannot do the work.    

We are here to offer advice to anyone thinking of installing a wood burning stove, its free and unpressurised.
