It’s the hap-hap-happiest time of the year! There’s turkey and pumpkin pie, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade dinner rolls for Thanksgiving dinner, then after a good night’s rest, you can move on to the next big event – Christmas! There is buying presents, making candy, baking cookies, wrapping presents, inviting guests…the list goes on and on. Christmas music playing in the background, hot chocolate, candy canes – there’s only one thing that could make the season better, and that is to relax after a busy day of Christmas preparations by cozying up in front of a beautiful wood burning stove. There are so many benefits to this type of heat source, and being snug and cozy is only one of them.

Benefits of a Wood Stove

One of the big benefits of a wood burning stove is efficiency. Today’s wood stoves are much different than their predecessors from years ago. Those stoves were inefficient and unsafe; today, these stoves not only meet the U.S. EPA’s emission guidelines, but they are also able to heat a larger area of your home, depending on how the rooms are laid out.

Another positive thing about wood burning stoves is that they are a much cheaper fuel source than other types of heat. Buying wood is less expensive than buying other types of fuels, and if you go out and cut your own wood it’s even less expensive. There are some things to consider when burning with wood, however. First, make sure that you use seasoned wood; you should leave it to cure for at least six months before using it in your wood stove, and a year is even better. Also, burning hardwoods is better for your stove; it burns hotter and causes less creosote buildup, and that lessens the chance of disastrous chimney fires.

The Environmental Protection Agency has a program that provides guidelines for wood burning stoves regarding the emissions that these stoves produce. This is a real benefit, not just to you, the homeowner, but also to the environment.


One of the biggest benefits of a wood burning stove is that it can be installed anywhere. Even if you don’t have a chimney, you can still install a wood burning stove. You’ll need to have some sort of venting system, however, so you will need to install some type of chimney. In some ways, this is actually a better solution than using an existing chimney, because you can make sure that it is specially fit to the stove that you have purchased.
