Fantastic Benefits With Wood Stoves
1. High Heat
Wood stoves on the market today produce up to 100,000 BTUs, which is an awful lot of useable heat. Of course, you can purchase less-powerful units for smaller rooms.
2. High Efficiency
Heating appliances are given heat-efficiency ratings, which tell you how much of the heat a unit produces that will be heat you can actually use. Modern wood-burning stoves have ratings of 70%, 80% and higher. By comparison, traditional masonry fireplaces rate at about 20%.
3. Easy Placement
A wood stove can be placed just about anywhere in a home. All that’s required is a basic vent pipe, which can go through the ceiling or out a wall. You won’t have to do any remodeling or tearing out – wood stoves are self-contained and ready to go out of the box.
4. Zone-heating Options
Because of their easy placement, wood stoves are perfect for zone heating in kitchens, bedrooms, dens, garages and just about anywhere else you want fast, predictable heat without cranking on your home’s heating system.
5. Lowered Emissions
Today’s wood stoves follow EPA regulations for clean-burning operation and reduced emissions, making them friendly to the eco-system. Plus, wood logs are considered to be carbon-neutral – i.e., no carbon footprint on the environment.
6. Amazing Good Looks
You can purchase wood-burning stoves in a wide range of styles, sizes, shapes and finishes. Your new stove will instantly become the centerpiece of whatever room you set it up in, and it will be a focal point for gathering, relaxing and entertaining for many years to come.
7. Reduced Heating Bills
By heating a main room – or putting wood stoves in various rooms for zone heating – you’ll cut back significantly on your monthly heating bills. And anyway, getting your heat from an elegant wood stove is nicer than from a vent in the wall.
8. Heat Around the Clock
A wood stove will keep you warm, no matter what kind of weather events may be going on outside. Major blizzard has shut down electricity or gas lines? Relax – you’ve got a high-performing stove that will keep you warm throughout the storm.
