An Introduction to Wood Stoves

By: Peter Emerson

Wood stoves are like small fireplaces. They are inexpensive and can be built into a home or added later. Wood-burning stoves are great for either decoration or for home heating. These small cast-iron stoves have been used around the world for hundreds of years, providing aesthetic beauty and practical warmth wherever they are used. There are a number of advantages to wood stoves. They look great, are safe, can effectively heat an entire house, and are ecologically responsible.

There are countless designs for wood furnaces. Many of them are small, free standing structures with long, iron legs and elaborately designed bodies, featuring engravings and ornamentation. The wood stoves have a pipe that can either go through the ceiling or through a wall to expel any unwanted smoke. Wood stoves can be a great addition to a living room or den.

Wood stoves are much safer than many fireplaces, cooking stoves, or heaters that use gas. There is no danger of leaving the gas on and breathing deadly fumes or of starting a fire by lighting a match and igniting gas in the air. Wood stoves are easy to extinguish when they are not in use, and the smoke goes through a pipe outside the house so that people inside do not have to breathe it. Wood stoves are sturdy enough so that they will not tip over and set the house on fire.

A well-placed wood stove can heat an entire home. A wood stove located centrally in a house can provide heat to all of the different rooms, ensuring that everyone will be warm.

Another major advantage of wood stoves is that they are ecologically responsible. They do not run on gasoline, coal, or other nonrenewable resources. Wood is inexpensive, easy to find, and can be replenished, unlike many other fuels.

Wood stoves are a great alternative to more common heating methods. Wood stoves are pretty, efficient, safe, and environmentally sound.
