Why Stick With a Wood-Burning Stove?

One of the nicest places to be during the fall and winter season is next to a fireplace. The crackling, lively flames and the sweet smell of burning wood offer a needed respite from day-to-day stresses, and that warm glow is a comforting place for family and friends to gather. While you can upgrade to modern gas or electric fireplaces, nothing quite beats the traditional appeal and feel of a wood-burning stove.

You may be on the fence about purchasing a new stove or keeping an existing wood-burning stove. Keep in mind the following advantages of wood-burning stoves:

  • Installation flexibility: A wood stove can be easily installed nearly anywhere in your home as long as there’s a way to vent the pipe to the outside of your home.
  • Superior heating: Wood-burning stoves produce radiant heat that quickly and efficiently warms areas of your home better than a venting system. Steel wood stoves with blowers are even more effective. Radiant heat is evenly distributed throughout a space for improved comfort. Another advantage is that wood stoves can be used during a power outage versus pellet or electric alternatives which cannot.
  • Distinctive, charming aesthetic: Wood-burning stoves are immediately recognized for their distinct look, invoking nostalgia and adding appeal to rustic, farmhouse or mountain homes. A steel wood stove with legs is a recognizable and welcoming sight.
  • Better for the environment: Compared to natural gas and propane, wood is a much more eco-friendly fuel source and is considered carbon-neutral.
  • Economical heating solution: Wood is also an inexpensive fuel source, costing less per BTU than oil, gas or electricity.
  • Emergency Heat: In major disasters, like ice storms, or when electricity goes out, having an alternative form of emergency heat will keep you warm while others are left in the freezing cold.

How Can You Find the Perfect Wood-Burning Stove for Your Home?

Purchasing a wood stove for your home is one of the smartest choices you can make. The right wood stove provides a warm, inviting ambiance and is an efficient and effective way to heat your home.

Finding the best wood stove for your home doesn’t have to be complicated or confusing. Just keep these options in mind:

  • Stove size
  • Cast iron, steel, or porcelain build materials
  • Catalytic vs. non-catalytic combustion systems
  • Automation upgrades
  • Burn times

Which Wood Species Burn the Best?

When you rely on a wood-burning stove for extra heat during the winter months, finding the right kind of wood is the key to convenience, safety, and efficiency.

Softer woods like fir and pine can be easy to start, making these species ideal for kindling, but they're messy to burn. Meanwhile, hardwoods, like hickory and pecan, are often difficult to light, but produce a low and long burn.

The best woods for burning are oak, sugar maple, yew, and cherry. These wood species burn efficiently and produce good heat output.
