The Advantages of a Wood-Burning Stove or Fireplace in Manitoba
For over 40 years, Ye Olde has been installing and repairing wood fireplaces and wood stoves. Our experience and knowledge gives us the chance to help you find the right fireplace or stove for your home. We can help you weigh the pros and cons of installing a wood fireplace or wood stove in your Manitoba home, explaining the many advantages each product brings.
When it comes to wood-burning stoves and fireplaces, the benefits are many:
Creates a great ambiance There’s no mistaking it: a wood-burning fireplace creates a great atmosphere. Snuggling up next to the fireplace makes the whole room feel cozier on a cold winter’s night. The fireplace itself can also make for a great centrepiece to any room.
Helps during power outages If your power goes out, you won’t have to worry about sitting in the dark and the cold. A fireplace can offer heat and illumination, keeping your home safe and warm during adverse weather conditions.
Allows you a choice in the wood you burn You can choose the type of firewood you want to burn. Some woods burn longer than others while others shorter. This allows you to tailor the type of fire you want to build. Furthermore, some woods provide a pleasant smell when they burn.
Saves money on energy bills Burning wood is a low-cost heat source compared to other traditional fuels, and if you cut your own wood, your wood-burning stove even runs on free fuel. Wood stoves also allow you to do “zone heating,” in other words, heat the area of your home you want while keeping the thermostat low everywhere else thus saving money on your energy bill.
Increase your home’s comfort level Heat pumps and hot air systems might not provide the level of comfort you want out of your heating. In fact, you may find yourself cranking up the thermostat, but still feel cold. A wood stove can heat up any area to your desired temperature without having to worry about high heat bills.
Keeps your home environmentally friendly Wood stoves use a renewable and easily obtained fuel source. Since wood stoves also allow you to reduce the use of other heating systems in your home, you’re using less energy and reducing your impact on the environment.
