How to heat your new build home!
If you're building a new house or looking to move straight in to a new build home, you might be wondering how best to heat it. Not all homes are created equal, and it's essential to understand the unique characteristics of your home to figure out how best to heat it. The good news is that the heating system you choose doesn't have to be permanent, you can always change it later if you like – but here’s some food for thought for options you might look to consider when thinking about heating your brand new home:

Gas stoves

Gas central heating systems are probably the most popular choice for new builds because gas is usually much more energy-efficient than electric heating systems. That means that even though you may be paying more upfront for installation, you'll save more in the long run. However, the downside is that gas can be dangerous if not handled correctly – so make sure that you ask the experts and understand the ins and outs before installing a gas heating system in your home!

Electric stoves

Electric heating is another popular option for new builds, being both efficient and easy to control. Electric stoves provide comfortable heat without all the maintenance of gas or wood-burning stoves – and also doesn't use any valuable space since electric heaters don't require flues or chimneys! Finally, if you’re thinking green… since electricity is cleaner than almost any other type of energy, having an electric heating system also helps protect the environment!

Wood burners

Or how about a wood burning stove? If you love the look of a rustic fireplace, a wood burner is probably just what you need! Wood burners can help keep your home warm (especially during the winter!) and give it the cosy atmosphere you want – and can also be used as an alternative heat source during power outages. However, the slight disadvantage of using wood burners is that they do require regular maintenance, and they're only effective for heating one room at a time.

Multifuel stoves

Multi fuel stoves are an excellent choice if you're looking for something with a bit of old-fashioned charm! While they're aesthetically pleasing, they also have the added bonus of being able to burn multiple fuels, including coal, wood and smokeless fuels. Compared to other stoves, they can give off more heat and are more efficient at burning fuels. However, if you're using coal or smokeless fuels, make sure that they are approved for use in your area.

Boiler stoves

Have you ever thought about a boiler stove? These are a great option for those who want to heat their new build homes without having to pay for oil or gas; they use wood or coal as fuel, and they can also provide hot water. This helps cut down on energy costs and makes them very environmentally friendly! If you're interested in this type of heating system, make sure to do your research - different models have different capabilities, including how much water they can heat at one time, so you need to make sure you’ve got the right one for your new home!
