Few questions. How much did it cost? How much was instillation? How effective is it? How much is it to run? What does it run? TIA

I've had a multi fuel which also heated the hot water cylinder. Wood itself does not contain as much heat as solid fuel so a wood burner would be less powerful and need more replenishing. I know someone with a surprisingly large multi fuel which also heats several radiators. I don't know what the power is. A gas boiler to heat a typical house usually needs at least 12kW, though modern ones usually have a maximum output of twice that, and adjust themselves according to demand.
