Should You Have a Wood Stove Installed?

Wood-burning stoves are one of those sights you often see in cozy rom-com movies, burning away in the background. But wood stoves are actually good for a lot more than simply being a movie set prop! Those of us who live in the Northeast understand that a reliable wood stove is a tried and true way to keep warm. Having one installed requires the touch of an experienced professional.

Wood stoves probably will never go out of style, as they have a number of advantages for homeowners that can’t be matched by many other new types of heating systems. Read on and learn why our home energy professionals recommend wood stoves.

Wood Stoves Are Versatile

You might think of adding a wood stove as a minor benefit, but this is actually the reason many homeowners choose to have this installation done: it’s an appliance you can use for both warming your home, and for cooking. So when you have it roaring away on a cold winter night to keep your family cool, you can also throw a pot right on top for some good comfort food.

At HB Energy Solutions, we work with leading brands, such as Pacific Energy for wood stoves. These systems offer a large surface for food warming and operate very efficiently.

Wood stoves allow you to take advantage of ambient heat. While some homeowners are loyal to their furnaces, and we can understand their benefits, radiant heat truly is comfortable. You can’t argue against the level of comfort that a radiant heat source has to offer. With this kind of heating, the warmth from an object transfers directly to other objects and people in the area, versus a furnace that blows out warm air.

Warming your home by blowing heated air means your home will cool down faster. Your furnace has to run a lot more and a lot longer in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature in the wintertime, whereas a wood stove doesn’t have to work quite as hard.

Wood Stoves Help You Relax

There’s something very relaxing about feeding the fire in your wood stove—there is coziness and a relaxation factor to it that you simply cannot get from, say, a furnace or even a boiler. Let’s put it this way: when is the last time you and your guests decided to gather around a boiler or a furnace vent and chat?

Wood stoves are about more than just heating. They’re about providing you, your home, and your family with an ambiance that just can’t be beaten by any other heating system or cooktop. If you’d like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact our team. We install and service gas stoves too!
