We have a wood stove and a coal burner.  The wood stove is used as a feature mostly, burning 50/50 scavenged and bought wood.  It does kick out a lot of heat very quickly, not particularly controllable.  Our little Godin coal burner is fantastic though, very controllable. I can keep it going indefinitely and it has a hot plate under the ornamental lid just in case 😀.

This is our Jotul F373. It’s been fantastic, one of the best features of our house and we are glad we installed it while building the house in 2016. 

it’s controllable in terms of the temperature and it puts out 7.5 KW.

excellent piece of Norwegian craftsmanship. We use mostly Ash and Beech in it and normally around £100 a year mini pallet does the job. 

I would really like to put a small burner in the upstairs of the garage we are building just now but not sure if that is really feasible.

@marvinator80, very swanky. 

Where do you buy your wood from - that’s a decent price given the cost of wood.

@editor from a local farm place. I’m sure it’s not all actually Ash and Beech! 😆

I don’t see the purpose of them in urban areas, to be fair.
