Abstract

An inventory of the fireplaces fired by indigenous fuels in electrically heated detached houses was made in the study carried out in the Department of Forestry of the Work Efficiency Institute (WEI). Their use and obstructions to their use were clarified as was their significance in levelling electricity consumption peaks. In addition, the study clarified the amounts of electricity, wood and peat consumed, the procurement of firewood, and the house owners` opinions as to their future method of heating their houses. The material was collected by the means of a nationwide mail questionnaire addressed to 7 099 owners of detached houses in the spring 1988. The basic population of 827 000 houses was made up of all one and two-dwelling detached houses built before 1986. Of these 235 000 were electrically heated. Three out of four electrically heated houses (i.e. about 180000) had some kind of a fireplace fired by indigenous fuels. Such fireplaces were more common in the newer houses. There was an average of 1.5 fireplaces per electrically heated house. 8 % of these fireplaces had not been used for over a year. The leading obstacle to using the fireplace was its labouriousness, this was reported by 85  More>>

The leading obstacle to using the fireplace was its labouriousness, this was reported by 85 % of the respondents. Depending on the manner of heating, an average equivalent of 4.9 to 7.4 m{sup 3} of birch firewood was used in electrically heated houses in 1987. One of the two using both direct electricity and wood for heating their houses did not consciously change their accustomed manner of heating during cold winter days by reducing their consumption of electricity. One of five using electricity to heat their houses used wood only during cold spells.}
