How many homeowners lost power this winter? How did they heat their homes while they waited for the power to get turned back on? Those homeowners who heated with wood had no worries about warmth. Wood stoves and wood burning fireplace inserts allow you to stay warm even without power. It may be March, but this is a great time to invest in a wood stove or fireplace insert if you haven’t already.
When you see snow and wind outside, it makes the idea of heating with wood sound all that much more warm and inviting. It is very comforting when a storm blows through to know that regardless of the weather, you and your family will be warm. When winter brings power outages, a wood stove allows you to cook and stay warm.
Today’s wood stoves and inserts are certified, which means they use less wood than older stoves, they burn cleaner, and they create more heat. So buying a wood stove now could possibly be the best time to buy one. As home heating fuel prices rise, home owners are re-discovering the beauty of wood stoves as a cheaper option and as a design feature for their home. Today’s wood stoves and inserts have come a long way.
The fire box in wood stoves is designed to burn wood efficiently. This gives you more heat from each piece of wood, and the heat is still cleaner and hotter than older stoves. So when you heat your home with a wood burning stove or fireplace insert, there are many benefits: Lower heating bills, guaranteed heat when the power goes out, and best of all, beauty and ambiance. Once installed, a wood burning stove can give you a lifetime of trouble-free heat.
