Warm Your Home With A Woodburning Fireplace Insert Or Stove

It’s no secret that having a woodburning fireplace insert or stove in your home can up the value, increase your enjoyment and comfort, and reduce your home heating bills. But what makes wood such a popular choice after all these years?

  • Wood’s everywhere. Who hasn’t seen firewood for sale or even for free on the side of the road? Even if you want to buy the wood already seasoned, it’s not typically hard to find a good supplier year round. The availability and affordability of wood make it a great fuel source. Plus, it’s a renewable resource that can be seasoned, stacked, and stored for future use. That’s a win.
  • Wood’s not environmentally taxing. You may be thinking that using a woodburning fireplace insert or stove will contribute to environmental problems, but you can put that fear to bed. Yes, carbon dioxide is produced by burning wood, but it’s nothing that a fellow tree can’t convert to oxygen.
  • The fire and burning logs are beautiful. A wood fire has that charm and beauty that’s hard to replicate. While the best gas appliances certainly come close, for some people, it’s just not as good as the real thing.

Things To Consider

Alright, now that you know the benefits and advantages of opting for a woodburning appliance, let’s look at some of the possible cons that you’ll need to consider.

First things first, properly seasoning and storing wood takes up a lot of space. If you don’t have the storage space or the ability to keep the wood dry and protected, you could end up with a fireplace that you just don’t use very often or green, wet wood that makes for terrible fires.

Secondly, woodburning appliances aren’t exactly low maintenance. Wood produces a great deal of ash, and that ash has to be cleaned out of the fireplace after each use. You’ll also need to strategically build the fire before relaxing and make sure you have plenty of wood nearby to keep it going.

For some people, building and stoking the fire is the best part of having a real woodburning fireplace insert or stove, so that may not be much of a con for you. But if you’re more hands-off, you’ll need to consider the work involved when making your decision.
