Choosing the Perfect Stove for Your Home

When it comes to kitting out your new home or transforming your existing property, investing in a high-quality heating system that works to your advantage is a must. Here in Ireland, cold weather means that our heating systems are used almost every day, making it vital that yours works for you and your family’s unique needs. Nowadays, there are a number of heating systems on the market, each with pros and cons. Here, the Stove & Fireplace Fitters Ltd team will explore the best stove-based heating systems to suit a range of different needs and specifications.

Solid Fuel Stoves

Solid fuel stoves have historically been the most popular form of stove due to their durability, longevity, and heat output. An excellent addition to any Irish home, solid fuel stoves burn wood, turf, coal, and more to provide long-lasting, intense heat that will span the whole house. When combined with a back-boiler, a solid fuel stove offers home heating and water heating capabilities that are unparalleled. While solid fuel stoves have a number of advantages, including fantastic heat output, durability, and low maintenance, these are not the most eco-friendly form of heating, which means they are going out of fashion somewhat. That being said, for most homes a solid fuel stove is a great choice in terms of functionality and performance.


Oil Stoves

If you’re looking for an extremely low-maintenance, high-performance stove, an oil stove is a perfect choice. Unlike solid fuel stoves, which require regular re-fuelling, oil stoves can be attached to your home’s main oil tank and feed from this. Heat output is achieved by the simple flick of a switch. Another great benefit of an oil stove is the lack of maintenance required- no daily cleaning is necessary, only one annual service from a professional. If you live in a smaller home and want an easy, low-maintenance, and cost-effective stove that can run on your existing oil supply, a high-quality Tipperary oil stove from Stove & Fireplace Fitters is the perfect choice.


Electric Stoves

Electric stoves are gaining more and more popularity nowadays as they are a low-cost and low-maintenance alternative to solid fuel and oil stoves. Despite not producing the same amount of heat as a solid fuel stove or oil stove, electric stoves are an eco-friendly alternative that can be combined with other electrical heating systems for a warm, cosy, and cost-effective home heating system. Despite their past reputation for driving up electricity bills, electric stoves are now more energy-efficient than ever and can be installed to produce an imitation flame to achieve that cosy, “by the fire” feel often only given by a solid fuel stove. If you want to make your house more eco-friendly while also cutting down on heating bills, an electric stove is a perfect investment.
