Nothing beats a roaring wood fire on a cold winter night. But not all wood fires are created equal. There are those that burn in wide-open, drafty masonry fireplaces, then there are those that burn in heavily insulated, high-powered wood heating stoves.
Wood Stove Heat-Efficiency Ratings
If heat is what you’re after, there’s no comparison. Masonry fireplaces typically have heat-efficiency ratings of just 20% and often lower. Modern freestanding wood stoves, on the other hand, are often rated at 75% to 80% and higher. This percentage tells you how much of the heat an appliance produces will be felt as heat inside a room.
Powerful heat is just one of the reasons wood heating stoves keep growing in popularity. Let’s look at some others.
Elegance & Beauty in Wood Stoves
No bulky pot-bellied stoves on this lot. Today’s wood stoves are sleek designer appliances that magnify and accent the décor of any home. With the many shapes, sizes, colors and finishes available, you can bring home the perfect new stove that will provide you with years of comforting heat and beauty.
Wood Is Carbon-Neutral
Heating with wood is good not only for your home but also for the environment. Unlike some other fuels, wood, when burned, adds no more carbon emissions to the air than wood in a forest when it naturally decomposes. This fact is very important to many homeowners.
Freestanding wood stoves use a basic vent pipe to draft smoke from the firebox. There’s no need to construct an actual chimney or to modify your home in any way other than adding a hole in the ceiling or wall for the pipe.
Zone Heating Options
Because they’re so simple to vent, wood heating stoves are excellent choices for zone heating in bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dens, workshops and just about any other room. Heat only the space you want heated and cut your reliance on your home’s central heating system.
Real Wood Fires
The fact that wood stoves burn real wood logs is possibly the biggest reason they’re so popular. For some people, a fire just isn’t a fire unless it’s made from logs that produce leaping flames and popping embers. And with the large viewing areas of modern wood-burning stoves, you’ll get to see all the action as it’s happening.

Benefits of Wood Heating Stove
The wood heating stove comes in with so many advantages, and one of the biggest advantages is exceptional heat quality. It is one of the fastest, most secure, and most traditional methods of heating homes. Wood heating stoves usually operate on the radiant heat principle and indirectly, warm each area in its radius quickly and effectively.
A lot of wood heaters also use convection via heat panels and fans to provide completely even and moderate heat distribution. Since wood-burning stoves use renewable fuel, they indirectly have higher efficiency levels. Using them for your home is the ultimate way to contribute to an eco-friendly environment.
