A wood burner is a great way to get more use out of your conservatory or orangery in the colder winter months.
Correctly fitted they are a lovely feature in the room and make it into a cosy living space in the cooler months.
It also means you only have to heat it when you use it rather than having it added to the central heating system for example.
Before we get to the wood burning stoves there’s some safety aspects to consider – these CANNOT be overlooked.
Burners are perfectly safe in a conservatory when fitted correctly, like any other room. Stoves emit carbon monoxide so it’s not just the fire safety you need to consider.
Get the stove installed by a professional fitter if you’re not 100% sure what you’re doing – this is the safest option and will ensure the correct flue length and ventilation are covered.
It’s worth letting your home insurance company know you’ve had one installed to as a double check.
We’re yet to hear of this causing any problems more just us being overly cautious.
