IMHO wood is shite at giving out heat compared to coal, Coal/Anthracite is around £15.00 for 50kg bags, We use coal and the home is lovely and warm in every room as the Charnwood runs the radiators and the hot water which is piping hot.. having had gas central heating and before that economy 7 heating, I can safely say that the Charnwood is the dog doodars, never in my life have I lived somewhere that is so warm and snug.
On the environmental side wood is better to burn than coal and burning only wood I should imagine will give a better heating source than either gas or leccy.
There is a bit of work involved with chopping wood and getting coal in but thats all part of the experience.
Back to the environmental issues... I sometimes feel guilty about the coal, but in all honesty if I never had the Charnwood then the heating would have been on by turning the ever so convenient dial on the wall using gas or electricity when really all that was needed was a bit of extra clothing, so maybe in the grand scale of things everything equals out as others have their heating on when we don't... if that makes sense?
hope this is of some use.
