I definitely have to say, I was dubious when my partner made the decision to get this wood stove installed… I kept telling him that we’re not in Eastern Europe anymore and all of us do have this thing called modern day technology! However, all of us do own an older household and while it does get drafty, gutting the whole Heating & Air Conditioning device is not exactly a feasible solution. Plus, it would be gutting apart walls and fixtures that are over a decade old. The other plan was to run a gas fireplace in the place of our aged wood burning fireplace. However, when all of us were talking to the local heating and cooling technology supplier, they told us the wood stove would not only be cheaper however it would easily be more effective. Evidently the wood burning stove will entirely burn hotter than a fireplace, plus works to heat around a great deal more. Well, that was several weeks back, and I have to say my partner was right about this one. Not only does the wood stove burn so much hotter than the fireplace, however it entirely does heat up the household a lot better! Since the wood stove is a totally closed system, it burns through the logs way more efficiently. Then the various valve settings allow us to modify the airflow, which enables you to keep a single log burning quite a bit longer. Plus the wood burning stove cost only a fraction of what the gas fireplace would have. With the wood stove all of us can easily relax and appreciate the heat, without having to get up and mess around with the fire every hour.
