Benefits of a Wood Burning Stove

Are you considering buying a wood burning stove? Well, you should be! There are considerable advantages in owning one, and not all of them are heat related. With options to fit into virtually every budget, we say if you want it, get it! Here are just a few of the advantages in owning a wood burning stove.

Try using a wood burning stove

  1. Aesthetically Pleasing – there is just something about the look of a wood burning stove that offers a true vintage look to the home. If this fits in with your decor, you could not have picked a better accessory.
  2. Green – this may get a few people up in arms, but the reality is that owning a wood burning stove is more energy efficient than ever before. Older models lost more than 50 percent of the heat produced. Today, the EPA has forced manufacturers to make them more efficient. Stoves with a catalytic converter must be at least 72 percent efficient. Since most electric is generated by the burning of coal, a wood burning stove is far greener than one using electricity.
  3. Lower Utility Bills – if you are lucky enough to live in area where you can chop down your own wood, you can significantly reduce your utility bills in the winter.
  4. Safety and Heat During Power Outages – Hurricane Sandy is proof positive of the devastation Mother Nature can reign down on us at any time. Now, imagine if that storm had happened in the middle of the winter. Homes that were safe for habitation would have been without any form of heat. With a wood burning stove, the homeowner will always have a source of heat regardless if their electric stays on or goes off during a major storm.

As you can see, in addition to the warming benefits a wood burning stove offers, they offer quite a bit more. Seems to me like there is only one thing left to do, buy one!
