    second hand wood burner

    Buying a second hand log burner on the used and pre-loved market is becoming a popular and more affordable option.

    Finding second hand log burners for sale has always been an option but the recent spike in interest for used wood burners has come about for a few of reasons.

    Firstly, buying and installing a brand new wood burning stove can be expensive. Not necessarily just to buy the stove, but when you factor in the extra work and installation costs, it mounts up.

    Secondly, the UK is facing a household energy price crisis. Bills are escalating at obscene rates and people are turning towards tried and tested log burners to heat their living space. With a wood burner you know what you’re getting and you can reduce your mains energy usage.

    When you take these factors together, it’s no wonder why people are turning towards second hand wood burners as a good option.

    I hope this article will provide you with some helpful information and useful places where you find second hand log burners for sale.

    Cost of a Second Hand Log Burner

    Buying a second hand log burner is a fantastic choice for those who don’t want to pay the cost for a brand new stove.

    Second hand stoves tend to come to the market for a few reasons. The main reason is when people are renovating a room or their home and are either replacing or getting rid of the log burner.

    The headline is this – a second hand wood burner will be cheaper than a brand new one.

    However, you may be surprised that small wood burners and even different types of Ecodesign log burners can be very affordable. These new stoves can start from around £475. It’s usually the extras and installation that bump the prices up.

    The cost for a second hand log burner will vary depending on the condition, size, age and quality.

    Prices for a second hand wood burner can start from as little as £100 and go up to £750. You can pick up a very good second hand log burner between £300 and £500.

    These prices are very reasonable. As always, make sure you know exactly what you’re buying and what’s included within the price.

    Do the new Ecodesign regulations apply to second hand stoves?

    If you’ve been researching about wood burning stoves, you’d undoubtedly have come across the new Ecodesign regulations that come into force on 1st January 2022.

    These new regulations make it illegal for manufacturers to sell new stoves that don’t pass strict environmental tests to reduce emissions and particulate matter. All new stoves have to be certified to enter the market. The regulations also apply to new solid fuel and biomass boilers.

    The 2022 Ecodesign regulations do not apply to existing stoves and those already in the supply chain.

    This means if you already have a stove in your home or are looking to buy one second hand, the regulations do not apply.

    Used Log Burners For Sale – Where To Find?

    Before I list out the main places to buy a second hand log burner from, please make sure you do your due diligence on all sellers.

    As you know, there can be some sneaky, underhand people out there concocting up scams. Anyone can put a picture on the internet. Before you pay up, make sure you’ve seen the stove and are happy with it.

    When buying a second hand stove, just make sure you know exactly what you’re buying. Always check to see exactly what is included. For example, is the flue included in the price? What about the hearth? You can buy these things separately but just make sure you are aware.

    Here are a few excellent places to find a used wood burner for for sale.
