Wood-burning stoves - an ecological system creating a unique atmosphere
Wood-burning stoves have been riding the crest of the wave in the past few years and have proved extremely popular in France where people have simply fallen for this type of heating system with significant benefits. Both efficient and practical, the stoves have become veritable heating solutions. Their owners are also able to make real energy savings.
Wood-burning stoves function with the leading renewable source of energy in France: wood biomass. This heating system is ecological and creates a unique atmosphere, with a gain in thermal comfort.
There are two possible uses for wood-burning stoves, each of them tailored to a specific need:
- the use of wood-burning stoves by home owners or tenants wishing to use this material as their main heating
- or the use of a wood-burning stove as an extra heating system.
Cost and grants
• CITE tax credit for energy transition (30% of the amount for the stove which must be installed by an accredited company meeting specific environmental qualification criteria (RGE accreditation).
• energy saving certificates,
• grants from some local authorities, etc..
Wood-burner stoves with a “flamme verte” seal of approval entitle purchasers to receive these public grants. As of 1 January, 2012, the “flamme verte” seal of approval has indicated the energy performance of wood-burning stoves by means of a star rating system: the most efficient wood-burning stoves have 5, 6 or 7 star “flamme verte” ratings.
