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.
