What is a wood stove?
A wood stove is a type of hearth appliance designed to capture heat and keep it inside your home. It’s a contained iron structure that is completely separate from your traditional fireplace.
Advantages of a wood stove
- A wood stove uses a system of baffles and air ducts to pump warm air into the house and radiate heat. It has an adjustable damper and air-intake that controls the burn rate and is much more efficient for producing heat.
- Any house can have a wood stove. You can insert your chimney through the roof to centralize your stove, or you can install a flue for it into the wall and run the chimney up the side of the house. You can enclose a Class A Chimney or leave it exposed.
- A wood stove is more eco-friendly and needs less maintenance. The more modern versions especially create less pollution and actually don’t need to be cleaned as often.
