Which are cheapest? Gas fires, electric heaters or wood burners?
An electric heater is generally the cheapest of these to install. Gas fires can be pricey to fit and wood burners even more so.
But an electric heater costs more than a gas fire to run, since gas is more fuel-efficient than electricity. A wood burner will probably be the most expensive of the three to run – you could easily get through a £5 bag of logs in a weekend.
There’s an argument for the charm of a wood burning stove, but electric heaters have other benefits. They’re easy to install and clean, and are often portable.
