Heating with wood has come a long way since the time of the old wood stove.
The new wood burning stoves are incredibly efficient and can be equipped with fans and thermostats. You burn much less wood and have some control over the temperature settings. And the money you can save on home heating can be quite substantial. Instead of spending $1000’s p a year for oil a wood burning fireplace insert can save half that over the course of one winter by burning wood.
Reduced heating costs are a big factor in the decision for many homeowners. Using wood stoves and inserts saves money, but there are other factors too. Homeowners can save money, increase home value, add ambiance, do something good for the environment and support local businesses and jobs.
Winter is at our doorstep. There is comfort by heating with wood. Knowing that whatever the weather decides to throw at us, there will still be heat, and there are few worries about running out of fuel or running out of heat when the power goes out.
