Wood Stoves: A Classic Heating Option for Your Home

Offering warmth, comfort and atmosphere for centuries, the wood burning stove is a time tested solution for keeping your home, cabin or lodge cozy throughout the cold winter months. Wood heaters offer a compact, easy to install option for those looking for a reliable heating appliance. They are especially popular for spaces that aren't feasible to heat with gas or electricity, such as remote cabins and hunting/fishing lodges, though they're not just for heating. Freestanding wood stoves are an excellent option for adding the ambiance of a wood flame without all of the trouble of installing an entire fireplace.

Finding the right wood burning heater or decorative stove for your home can be challenging because of the large number of options on the market. No one wants to go through all the trouble and expense of buying and installing a wood heater stove only to find that it doesn't last as long as they'd like or has some kind of obnoxious defect. This is why you should shop with Fireplaces Direct. We've combed the market for the best brands and models, ensuring that every product we carry is high quality and built to last. To make your shopping experience easier, we've collected some helpful tips below.

Why Buy a Wood Stove

Fireplaces Direct carries a huge variety of home hearth options, from electric to gas to freestanding wood burning fireplaces and stoves. We are committed to helping all of our customers find the perfect product for their home or business, and while we believe in every product we sell, we know that each item in our inventory will have its own specific uses. Is a wood stove right for you? Customers who buy a wood burning stove from us usually do so for the following reasons:
  • Convenience - The primary reason driving the popularity of wood stoves are the ease with which they can be installed. Because they're freestanding appliances, they don't require significant architectural work to add to your home. The only major work needed to install a wood burning stove is running ventilation pipe for bringing in fresh air and/or expelling smoke.
  • Heat - Like other wood burning hearth options, wood stoves provide excellent heat output. Wood is capable of product temperatures significantly higher than natural gas or propane, allowing these appliances to provide comfortable, sustained heat. Wood stoves tend to burn more efficiently than traditional wood fireplaces, as well.
  • Atmosphere - While there may be more modern ways to heat your home or cabin, a wood burning stove provides the experience of a natural log fire to ensure a welcoming ambiance and elevated overall experience. Flickering flames have drawn people in and provided a gathering place for all of human history, and a wood burning stove is a great way to add that to your home.

What to Consider When Buying a Wood Stove

While wood stoves have many exceptional features and benefits that make them an excellent hearth option for many situations, not all of them are created equal. While Fireplaces Direct has selected only the best brands on the market, curating a collection of high quality fireplace options, each model in our inventory has its own particular strengths, meaning that among our offerings, some will meet your needs better than others. To ensure you find the best product for your home or business, we recommend evaluating them on the following criteria:
  • Regulations - Wood burning appliances like stoves are sometimes regulated, restricted and even banned in some places, depending on the building you're installing them in. Before you purchase one, we recommend looking into the legal status of indoor wood burning in your area.
  • Size - We carry wood stoves in a variety of sizes, ensuring there's an option for almost any space. It's vitally important to ensure that your wood burning stove is sized correctly for your installation, as ensuring proper clearances to walls is a key safety consideration. In addition, a wood fire is tough to "turn down" when it's too large, so buying the correct size of wood-fire stove will ensure you get the most comfort and enjoyment out of your space.
  • Burn Time - If you're planning for the wood stove to be your primary heating appliance, which is common in cabins and lodges, ensuring that it can keep a fire burning overnight is a key factor. Many models in our inventory feature maximum burn times of eight to ten hours, allowing them to keep you cozy until dawn.
  • Price - Because we select only the top quality brands, our pricing does tend toward the higher end of the market, but we still offer wood burning stoves at a range of budgets. It's important to keep in mind that when you invest a bit more in a high quality product, you're getting something designed to stand the test of time, saving you money in the long run.
  • Ventilation - Another key consideration, ventilation is a complex topic. Many brands have specific, proprietary venting solutions that require planning and forethought to ensure compatibility. To ensure you don't face any serious roadblocks during installation, be sure to fully plan the ventilation system before purchase.

Wood Stove FAQs

  • Are wood burning stoves energy efficient? Yes, many of them are. Keep an eye out for stoves that list a certification from the Environmental Protection Agency. These units must comply with emissions and efficiency regulations designed to reduce pollution and energy costs.
  • Do I need to use a floor protector under my wood stove? Yes. Wood burning stoves radiate heat in all directions, so to keep your home safe, the floor underneath your wood stove needs to be a non-combustible material like stone, tile or brick. Be sure to consult the owner's manual of your unit for details.
  • Are wood burning stoves safe? As long as you follow all recommended clearances and installation requirements given by the manufacturer, a wood burning stove is a perfectly safe way to heat your home, cabin or lodge.
