Today’s Wood Stove Designs are Fashionable and Trendy
The designers of modern wood stoves have created many styles that fit with ever-changing home décor trends. Enjoying a warm fire in your home can be an experience that also adds to the elegance of your décor or whatever style you prefer. Not only are wood-burning stoves fashionable with regards to decorating, they are also built in line with a growing consciousness about protecting the environment. And practicality never goes out of style, which is another reason a wood stove is an excellent choice for home heating. Check out some of the top trendy benefits of a wood stove:
If you have never shopped for a wood stove or if it has been a long while, you would probably be astounded to see the amazing designs that are currently available. Leading manufacturers offer a wide range of styles, and there is a model that will fit virtually any décor. Some wood stoves come in a variety of colors besides black. What may be most surprising about some designs is that they offer a clean, minimalistic look that adds elegance to the time-honored tradition of sitting by a cozy fire on a cold day. Because of advanced technology, some wood stoves can be placed mere inches from combustible materials.
Cut Utility Costs
Saving money never goes out of style. Unlike a traditional masonry fireplace, modern wood-burning stoves can be depended upon to provide the heat for your home during winter, cutting your utility costs by as much as 40%. Part of the new technology centers on maximum heating efficiency. Some designs are equipped to burn the combustion gases, which further increases the amount of heat produced. Modern wood-burning stoves are highly efficient.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has strict guidelines for protecting the environment when burning wood, and most of the wood stoves available today exceed the EPA’s requirements. Keep in mind that the wood itself is carbon-neutral, which means that no more carbon is released into the atmosphere during combustion of the firewood than what was taken in.
No Electricity Required
Occasional power outages are a fact of life, particularly in the midst of severe winter storms. With a wood stove, you will have a source of light, a way to cook your food, and a way to stay warm during a blackout. Three of the major struggles that people have in a wintry power outage are solved with one modern wood-burning stove, as long as you have plenty of fuel to keep the fire going.
On any wood stove, at the very least, you should be able to warm leftovers, boil water, warm up canned foods such as soup, and scramble eggs. Some of today’s wood-burning stoves are as handy to cook on as those in former times, before gas or electric stoves were available.
