Because wood stoves and fireplaces are often a gathering place within a home, it’s important to spend the time to choose the right wood burning appliance based on expectation and performance.
The best choice for fireplaces that provide a substantial amount of heat are EPA-certified, high efficiency wood burning fireplaces that burn similar to wood stoves, with their doors closed.
Wood burning inserts installed into existing fireplaces provide greater heating and efficiency capabilities. Sized to fit the existing fireplace, there are a number of different styles to select.
Woodstoves can provide zone heating to whole-house heating, depending on your home’s design and size of stove.
