Spantrout, it is expensive without a doubt but only if you compare it to wood, which has got to be the only cheaper option in BG. Electric and gas would be much more (Gas around 600lvs) for say a 3 bed house pumping out the same 24 hour warmth. I didn't say it was cheap, as most people who have one agree, its the cheapest hassle free, fire and forget, adjust the thermo system available in BG. Warm all day especially first thing in the morning. Fill it once a day or if you have a good hopper, once a week.
But yes, compare it to £50 a month for good old British gas then it is rather high. But hey, tell a Thai that you're spending 100lvs a month on a woodburner and he'll give you the same conversation.
