Where Can I Buy a Wood Burning Stove?

What to look for when buying a wood burning stove?

Deciding what Type of Stove is Right for You:

First and foremost, you need to decide what type of stove is best for you. There are three different types:

  • Wood burning stove – These are only designed to burn wood.
  • Multi fuel stove – These allow you to burn other types of fuel, such as coal.
  • Pellet stove – These are the best choice if you want to burn pellets instead of wood or coal.
Deciding if you want a freestanding or insert stove

Stove inserts work just like a freestanding stove except it must be located within your existing fireplace.

Deciding if you want a steal or cast-iron stove
  • Cast iron stoves take longer to heat up but the heat will last for longer (even after the fire has gone out). You may also have a greater choice of patterns and designs.
  • Steal stoves will take less time to heat up, but the heat won’t last as long. Steal stoves are more sleek-looking and are generally the cheaper option.

Stove Efficiency:

You should ensure that you choose a stove that has as high an efficiency rating as possible. All stoves should have an official efficiency rating that give an indication of how efficient a stove burns wood. Anything over 70% efficiency is acceptable.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Approved

When choosing a wood burning stove, you should ensure its not too harmful for the environment. You can do this by ensuring the stove is EPA approved. Most modern wood burning stoves are EPA approved so you don’t usually need to worry. However, if you plan on buying a second-hand stove, you may want to double check. Older models will have been subject to less or different regulation in previous decades.

Decide if you want a blower, ash bin and airwash system
  • Look for a stove that has a blower if you want your stove to push heated air into your room. 
  • Ash bins allow you to easily remove ashes between fires. If you want to keep your stove burning for a long period of time, then you should look for a wood stove that has an ash bin.
  • Wood stoves that have airwash systems built in tend to have cleaner glass doors. Airwash provides a flow of air down the inside of the glass. this helps prevent particles from settling on the glass.
