How to Decide on a Wood Stove

- Thursday, November 17, 2011

Have you considered heating with wood? In the Northeast, firewood is cheap and available, so wood heat can save you money. Not only do wood stoves give you a reliable source of heat even when the power goes out, it’s also a green option. Wood is a renewable resource.

But deciding which wood burning stove to buy can be tough. There is a huge range of options in sizes, styles and models. So how do you choose the best woodstove for your home?

Wood stove Dealers and Brands

Find a good stove dealer first, then select from that store’s stock. No one can tell you exactly what wood stove to buy; your personal preferences and lifestyle influence the final choice. But a good stove retailer can be a great resource. Look for one who has been in the business for a number of years, heats his or her home with wood, and has burning models in the showroom.
 
Pay attention to wood stove brands. The ideal stove is built by a company with at least 20 years’ experience because it’s more likely to honor the warranty and continue to carry replacement parts.
