Wood burning stoves tend to be the most popular choice for homeowners. Today’s modern wood burning stoves must meet or exceed the Environmental Protection Agency’s emission requirements. That means homeowners can enjoy high efficiency, environmentally friendly fires that provide a wonderful ambiance in addition to outstanding heating benefits. Wood stoves utilize a re-burn system which helps to burn particles & gases left over after combustion. This ensures that your stove burns cleanly and produces very little harmful emissions.
Catalytic wood burning stoves use a catalytic combustor. Smoke from the fire is routed through the combustor which achieves extremely high temperatures. These high temp’s causes most of the smoke from the fire to be burned as it is routed through the combustor. Non-catalytic wood burning stoves feature secondary burn tubes to diminish the smoke output. Non-cat wood stoves are generally favored because the re-burn system is automatic. Catalytic stoves normally have a damper that must be engaged at the right time and temperature to enable, or engage, the re-burn system. Wood burning stoves come in a number of sizes, styles and models. Choose from steel, cast iron, or soap stone, along with a number of other options, such as front, side or top loading models.
Gas burning stoves appeal to many homeowners due to their convenience and ease of maintenance and operation. Conveniences like multi-function/thermostat remote controls, variable heat output, flame height and fan speed are hard to beat.
These highly advanced heating appliances are great for zone heating, and can effectively heat a single room or 2,000 square feet of space. They can also be installed in almost any room of your home, making them a great option where wood burning stoves would be impractical or you just want the convieniece of gas.
Gas stoves are available in different sizes, styles, and venting options. The venting system for a direct vented gas stove can be installed through the side-wall of your home or up through the roof if you are positioning the stove on an interior wall. There are also “b-vented” appliances that use room air for combustion and vent-free appliances that have no venting system.
Pellet stoves are a clean-burning and cost efficient heating alternative to gas and wood models. They have similarities to both gas and wood burning stoves, but use a renewable, recycled fuel source that makes them a great choice for eco-conscious homeowners. Pellet stoves are extremely heat efficient and have some of the highest efficiency rates of any hearth product. They are great for zone heating and can effectively heat a few busy rooms, or an entire house, if necessary.
Most pellets are made from condensed wood scraps, sawdust, bark and other wood waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill. The amount of heat your stove will produce depends on how fast the pellets are fed through the stove. A burn rate of 4 pounds per hour produces about 32,000 BTU’s and will give you significantly more heat than 1 pound per hour which only produces about 8,100 BTU’s.
No chimney, no problem. Pellet stoves do not need a chimney to operate. Instead, a vent pipe can be installed through the side-wall of your home or up through the roof if you are positioning the stove on an interior wall.
