Easy to install, easy to maintain, and easy to enjoy, a wood burning, gas, or pellet stove may be the option for you. Stoves are more efficient than older style masonry fireplaces and can add a unique style to your home. While more modern fireplaces and inserts are just as efficient at producing heat as stoves, a freestanding stove is a great heating option for rooms with limited wall space. There are several different stove type materials that have their own unique benefits and style. The major materials are: Cast Iron, Steel, and Soap Stone. There are also different sizes, like fireplaces and inserts, designed to heat larger or smaller areas.
