Log Burner vs. Multi Fuel Stove: Which is Right for You?
When it comes to heating your home, choosing between a log burner and a multi-fuel stove can be a tough decision. Both options give your living room that cosy feeling and both can act as a focal point in any space, but which one is right for you? And what is the true difference between the two? In this blog, we will explore the features, benefits, and some of the drawbacks of both these options, including some of our favourites at Stove Supermarket.
The Log Burner
A log burner, also known as a wood-burning stove, is a heating solution that uses solely wood as its fuel source. It's a more traditional choice, which is often loved for the authentic, rustic feel it brings to a home - not to mention the comforting smell of burning wood that fills the living room. Some of the best-selling log burners we have on Stove Supermarket include the ACR Neo 1C Eco Wood Burning Stove, ACR Trinity 3 Eco Wood Burning Stove, and the ACR Wychwood Wood Burning Stove. These models are often a popular choice amongst our customers due to their efficiency, design and eco-friendly features. Check out our range of stoves log burners here. Despite its many benefits, one of the main drawbacks of a log burner is its fuel limitation. They can only burn wood, meaning you need a good supply of logs throughout the winter to fuel the stove, which can often become expensive if you’re lighting it every night during the chilly months.
Multi Fuel Stove
On the other hand, a multi-fuel stove offers more flexibility. As the name suggests, these stoves can burn a variety of fuels, including wood, coal, and smokeless fuels. This means you can choose the most cost-effective or available fuel whenever you want. Some of the best-selling multi-fuel stoves at Stove Supermarket are the ACR Ashdale Multi Fuel, ACR Astwood Multi Fuel stove, and the ACR Buxton Multi Fuel. These models are known for their versatility, quality, and powerful heating capabilities. However, multi-fuel stoves may require more maintenance due to the variety of fuels they can burn. Some fuels, such as coal, can produce more ash than wood, requiring more regular cleaning.
Making Your Choice
When deciding between a log burner and a multi-fuel stove, consider the following questions:
1. Do you have easy access to a good supply of seasoned wood, or would the ability to burn multiple fuels be more convenient?
2. Are you prepared for the cleaning and maintenance required for your chosen stove?
3. Which style do you prefer? It’s your house, so choose a style that fits best for you and your home. Some people love the classic look of a log burner, while others prefer the versatility of a multi-fuel stove. It’s completely up to you, but it’s always important to do you research before making your final decision.Do you need more advice and guidance with your decision?
