Upgrade Your Home with Modern Wood Stoves

It is better to be equipped with modern wood stoves as winter is never too far behind. Human fascination with fire has not yet come to an end. Thanks to modern technology, wood stoves on sale today not just serve to add to your home’s beauty but they are also environment friendly.

A wood stove exudes a certain charm and a wide array of designs and styles are available in the market which will blend in with all types of décor. Their appearance, however, does not take away from their unrivalled practicality. Modern day wood stoves for sale have several benefits.

  • Environment Friendly

You need not be afraid of adding to pollution and global warming while purchasing wood stoves. Wood is actually a sustainable and renewable source of energy, and wood stoves are considered to be ‘carbon-neutral’. This means that burning woods in a stove has no impact on carbon emissions as it releases the same amount of carbon it would have while decaying. Contemporary wood stoves produce near about 1 gram of smoke per hour which falls under the limit set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). When compared to other types of heating equipment, it actually reduces air pollution by about 70%.

  • Efficient Source of Energy

The wood burner interestingly burns logs in a particular manner. High quality modern wood stoves generally have both secondary and tertiary burning facilities. It generates more heat and a longer lasting fire. The advanced venting system, with the help of distributor fans, pushes the heat into the interiors of your home, preventing its quick escape through the chimney. Some models are more than 75% efficient and the innovative designs help in the reduction of smoke. They can also easily heat up a larger living space when compared to traditional fireplace.

  • Within the Budget

Wood is less expensive than oil, electricity and gas. If you live near the woods, you can even get it for free by cutting your own firewood. The modern wood stoves use a third of the fuel the traditional or earlier models of wood burning stoves used to consume. Your supply of wood will last longer than you expect if you are using the newer innovative designs. Moreover, the modern insulation system around the wood stoves will further decrease your electricity bills. Hence, wood stoves are not just a choice within your budget but it will also reduce your overall living costs.

  • Does not depend on Electricity

In case of a bad storm or if there is a power outage, you need not worry about being cold in the harsh winter. Wood stoves do not run on electricity, and thus is a point ahead of electric furnaces.

  • High Comfort Level

All thermostats are not accurate. Thus, you may feel cooler than what the reading indicates. Wood stoves can warm up your room rapidly and more efficiently than you can imagine.

  • You will become more Self-sufficient

Wood stoves can also be used for heating water and also the radiators around your house. Some of the wood stove models come with a boiler. It will naturally warm your meals if you keep them near it.

  • Beautification of your Living Space

Wood stoves can improve the appearance of your room by giving it a classy edge. You will find one according to your tastes as they come in all shapes and sizes. It is also easier to install.

  • Use in Smokeless Zones

Many models of modern wood stoves are innovative enough to reduce soot and emissions to the extent to which they can be used in smokeless zones.

Your one great reason apart from environmental concerns, to purchase wood stoves, should be a cheery place to gather around on a cold winter evening. There truly is no better way to strengthen ties within the family.
