When you want the charm of a wood-burning fire but lack the space or budget for a fireplace, a free-standing wood-burning stove is an excellent choice. No wonder wood stoves are such popular heating appliances in Minnetonka, uptown Minneapolis, and homes throughout the Twin Cities Area.
However, buying a wood-burning stove can be challenging, especially since so many models are available in a range of sizes, styles, heat output, and other features. That's why many Minnesotans trust Twin City Fireplace for their home heating needs. In addition to selling the most popular brands, we provide professional installation, inspection, and cleaning.
Wood Is a Carbon-Neutral, Sustainable Energy Source
If you are trying to reduce your carbon footprint, you will find a wood-burning stove is an excellent way to meet that goal. Unlike fossil fuels, wood is a sustainable, renewable, and recyclable energy resource. According to the EPA, wood is a carbon-neutral resource because wood-burning emits no more emissions than a tree naturally decomposing in a forest.
Wood-Burning Fireplace Vs. Stove
There are many similarities between a wood-burning fireplace and a stove. They both can burn wood logs or pellets as fuel to generate heat in your living space. However, there are also some fundamental differences between the two heating appliances:
Wood-burning stoves have a significantly higher heat output than masonry fireplaces. This is because the closed chamber of a free-standing stove, similar to an insert, burns the wood more efficiently with less smoke and pollution. On the other hand, much of the heat from a fireplace escapes up the chimney. As a result, a wood stove will generate more heat with less fuel than a fireplace. Depending on the size of the wood stove, it can keep up to a 3,200 square-foot room warm for hours. Also, wood stoves typically have a closed door with a large viewing window, which prevents heat loss while providing a front-row seat to spectacular fire performance.
