Wood-Burning Stoves for Suffolk, Essex and All of East Anglia
The first wood-burning stove was patented in Strasbourg in 1557, two centuries before the Industrial Revolution, which would make iron an inexpensive and common material, so such stoves were high end consumer items and only gradually spread in use.
In the 1740s, a wood shortage in Philadelphia inspired Benjamin Franklin to improve upon the existing open hearth. His three-sided iron box, aptly named the Franklin stove, used only one-quarter as much fuel as did a fireplace and could raise the room temperature higher in a shorter amount of time.

Multi-fuel stove designs are common in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Europe. They burn smokeless fuel and dried wood under 20% moisture. They are typically made of steel or cast iron.
Stoves that readily convert to either oil or gas in addition to wood fuel have been manufactured in North America and Europe since the early 20th century and are still manufactured today. In some models, the oil or gas may fuel the stove through a pipe connection leading to a “pot burner” in the rear of the firewood compartment in the stove. This is a great alternative to a wood burning stove because you don’t need wood to fuel it. Regardless of the type of stove you’re interested in, contact us for knowledgeable and reliable service throughout the Essex and Suffolk areas.
