With the economy in shambles and the cost of everything going up, the one piece of advice I can give to people is this:
- Wood-burning stoves work without the use of electricity or fans (unlike gas furnaces or pellet stoves).
- Wood stoves and inserts produce TWICE the amount of heat (BTU's) than gas stoves or inserts!
- Fuel is readily available either by using your own trees on site or purchasing through a firewood dealer. Tip: Buy NOW.
- No electricity is needed for a wood stove or insert to work! In case of emergency when the power is out you'll be able to stay in your home instead of going to stay with friends or family or going to a hotel.
- With a freestanding stove you can cook on the top if needed.
