Since smaller homes usually don’t have wood burning fireplaces, you can have the next best thing installed: a wood stove. A wood burning stove will not only provide heat, but certain models have cooktops on them so you could use them for popping corn or warming a tea kettle. Here are four other benefits of installing a wood burning stove in your home.
Allows for Zone Heating
When a wood burning stove is installed, the room in which it’s placed will be warmer while the rest of the house stays cooler. Zone heating allows you to reduce energy bills because you can reduce the temperature in rooms that are not occupied. Wood burning stoves in Salt Lake City, UT will keep everyone in the family room or living room comfortable while helping to save money.
Inexpensive Heat Source
Wood burning stoves cost less to heat your home per BTU than other fuel sources or electricity. Wood stoves are also as efficient as other heat sources such as gas or oil furnaces. Modern wood stoves are built to be efficient and they are a green heating source as wood is a renewable resource.

Safe for Many Homes
