How much would you save changing from Gas to Wood?

"With the prices of gas and electric heat reaching record highs as shown by our previous posts, many people all over the UK are considering the option of switching to cheap and abundant wood fuels. But how much money would you save by switching to these wood fuels? 

According to the UK government, through their 2011 Energy follow up survey on main heating systems, the average length of the heating season in the UK is 5.6 months, which equates to 168 nights. If we take an estimate that individuals use on average 7.5 logs per night in a wood burner. That would be 1260 logs per "heating season", With Salop Logs, there are around 200 logs in a dumpy bag, and 10 logs per net. If we round up to 1,400 logs for the season, you would require 7 of our dumpy bags, at a total cost on the Salop Logs site of £595 for the year. The equivalent of £49 per month.

According to Ofgem - the energy regulator for Great Britain. The energy price cap for gas heating will increase on the 1 April for approximately 22 million customers. Those on default tariffs paying by direct debit will see an increase of £693 from £1,277 to £1,971 per year (difference due to rounding). Prepayment customers will see an increase of £708 from £1,309 to £2,017. When you compare these values to the £595 you would pay for 1,400 logs, it is a massive amount of money that is saved.
