Homes now using log burning stoves, wood burners or multi-fuel stoves, in the UK now number around one million.
It is essential these days to find a reliable and cost effective fuel supply, especially as the winter months draw closer – keeping an open fire stoked can be expensive.
Another freezing cold and snowy winter is predicted by experts this year. *
Add to that the average 11% rise for electricity and 18% rise in gas bills, and finding cheaper alternatives becomes crucial.
A smart solution is provided by Verdo renewable wood briquettes, which burn for twice as long as traditional logs and are sourced from renewable, managed wood supplies:
- One pallet of Verdo briquettes costing less than £300 delivered to your home – has the same output as 10m3 seasoned wood, that would cost around £800, or 500L of heating oil, which costs over £300 but does create more serious carbon emissions than wood burning and is not sustainable.
- Ideal for open fireplaces and wood burning or multi-fuel stoves, Verdo wood briquettes are more eco-friendly, convenient and cost effective than logs or coal.
- The briquettes are clean, compact, can be split by hand and create minimum levels of ash (typically less than 1%), so less cleaning up is needed. And they don’t leave that black soot on the glass door of your wood burner either.
Managing Director at Verdo, Richard Smith said:
“Many people don’t realise the saving they could be making by swapping their normal logs for wood briquettes. One of our pallets will last the average consumer a whole year and is the same weight as five bags of logs – but burns for twice as long.
”It’s still a fairly new option in the UK, but is well established in Scandinavia, a region which knows all about how to keep warm.”
The Verdoi wood briquettes have historically been available through hardware stores, garden centres, fuel suppliers, log burner and stove retailers.
