When the cold bite sets in during the winter months, your home is the one place you want to be a toasty heaven of warmth, and installing something like a wood burning stove is a fantastic way of achieving this. Since my boiler broke last year, I installed a wood burner alongside http://www.underfloorheatingsystems.co.uk and have never looked back! The wood burning stove provides the most lovely warmth on the cold winter nights, and really provides a fantastic aesthetic addition to the room too.
