High-quality chimney stoves help reduce costs

The bills ram it home – almost all homeowners and tenants have experienced a steep increase in heating costs in the past few years. If you would like to counteract this spiralling of costs, consider using a chimney stove as a source of heat.

  • A renewable type of fuel: wood
  • Very inexpensive
  • Particularly pleasant warmth
  • Comfortable and safe operation with the EFA Quality Seal

High standards

Manufacturers that cooperate within the framework of the European Fireplaces Association place a very high value on quality. Certified stoves come in various models and types, making it possible to adapt them to the location and the style of furnishings. One of their strengths is their low level of emissions, provided they are used with dry firewood logs. Whether you prefer a traditional or a slick, modern fireplace – they all provide heat and cosiness and help protect the environment.

The regenerative alternative

This facilitates a clear reduction in CO2 emissions. In 2008, about 14 million privately used wood-based heating systems in Germany amounted to a saving of approximately 13.8 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Bundesumweltministerium (Federal Environment Ministry).

The prices of oil and gas have been increasing for years – and there is no end in sight. This calls for a new approach, and more and more builders and modernisers are making the decision to install a wood-burning heating system – from a central heating boiler with pellets or wood chips to a single-room fireplace. In autumn or spring or on chilly nights, a chimney stove can replace the central heating. Even during the cold months, it can provide up to 50 percent of the required heat. But a chimney or tiled stove is more than simply a source of warmth – it is a piece of furniture promoting cosiness and family time.
The advantages:

  • Conservation of fossil fuel resources - oil and gas will not last forever
  • Wood is a CO2 neutral type of fuel
  • A pleasant and noticeably different kind of heat
  • Ecologically ideal, because it is available almost anywhere
  • Short routes of transport, ensuring independence and security of supply throughout Germany

In this way, CO2 can be demonstrably saved: In 2008, about 14 million privately used wood-based heating systems in Germany amounted to a CO2 saving of approximately 13.8 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Bundesumweltministerium (Federal Environment Ministry).
