According to latest research, UK house prices are expected to remain stagnant throughout 2012. With many people giving up on the urge to move, why not think about re-investing in the home you already own?
Look at your house through the eyes of a prospective buyer. If you were walking through the doors of your house, what improvements would you make, what could be done better?
In a lot of cases, the kitchen is the room many people would change. If you’re going to renovate this family hub of activity then why not go greener?
Small adaptations to your home could make you fall in love with it all over again!
Many people like the idea of a log burning stove and the good news is they can be an environmentally friendly alternative to gas, oil or coal fired ranges.
The beautiful range is the perfect accessory to any kitchen. Allbrite endorse a Biomass Log Burning Range. Biomass is a renewable energy source that is obtained from material including wood, grass, wheat or suitable waste materials. Biomass is mostly used in the production of heat and the generation of electricity.
When burnt, biomass sources release CO2, equivalent to the amount that a plant would release when it dies and decomposes. Hence, the carbon released has a limited effect on the environment as it is a part of the natural carbon cycle. This is unlike fossil fuels which continually increase the carbon levels in the environment when burnt.
If you are a homeowner who currently uses oil to fire your central heating boiler, biomass is the closest alternative renewable technology as the appliances operate in a very similar way but with lower CO2 emissions and residues.
The fuel consumption is so effective that virtually all of the fuel is incinerated.
