“What are the benefits of burning wood in fireplace, stove, or fireplace insert?”
Wood is natural and available. It can supplement furnace usage and heat an entire room. Burning wood reduces heating costs up to 30% which makes it environmentally responsible. Wood-burning fireplaces have safe locking doors and are easily lit.
Expect robust, steady fires. Wood fireplaces, stoves, and fireplace inserts deliver powerful heating performance and efficiency.
Paper, kindling, and a fire-starting log are effective ways to start a fire.
Adding more fuel (wood) will immediately increase convective heat. Radiant heat will remain steady.
Wood needs to be stored in a dry place. A cord of wood is stacked 4’x4’x8′. On average, a 1,500 sq. ft. home will require 2-4 cords per season.
