If you’re looking for a new heating source or an additional heating source, you might want to look at adding a stove of some sort. These stoves can be a source of heat while adding charm to any room. If you’ve decided that you’d like to add some sort of stove to your home, you can choose between a gas, a wood, or a pellet stove, depending on the style of your room and the type of feel you’re trying to achieve.
Many homeowners are turning to gas stoves as a way to add the charm of a burning fire and extra warmth to a room. Choosing gas has several advantages, number one being that it is a clean burning fuel. This is great for the environment and great for you, because it means less creosote build-up which means less chance of a chimney fire. Burning with gas is also convenient; with a flip of a switch you can turn the flame on or off. Another benefit is that it can be vented through a wall, so placement is more versatile.
Although gas is a great, convenient option for many homeowners, for others, there’s nothing that can replace the experience of a real wood fire. If you’re one of those homeowners, then a wood burning appliance is right for you. Wood burning has several benefits as well, one being that wood itself is a renewable natural resource. You can control what type of wood you burn for a hotter burning fire, and you can even use different types of wood for different smells. So if you like a fruity smelling wood, choose apple wood to burn.
If you like the idea of using a renewable resource but not the idea of storing firewood and building a fire every time you want to enjoy a fire, a pellet stove is the way to go. The pellets burned are actual wood pieces which are fed into the stove through a hopper. Typically, pellet burners are more efficient than wood stoves, but because they use a hopper and a fan to deliver the pellets for burning, if there’s no electricity, you won’t be able to use your stove. Pellets burn like wood but you don’t need as large a storage area as you do for storing cut wood.
