Wood fuels produce more and exceptional heat. They run on the radiant heat principle so they heat rooms a bit more proficiently and rapidly compared to heat produced via vent systems. Wood stoves produce heat that radiates through both tops and all sides of the unit hence sending warm to all directions in the target rooms.
Not only does it keep me warmer in my home, but oil prices are on the way back up again. The economy is still tight, and every dollar saved adds up during times like these. I can lower the heat in my house and I'll save money on my heating bill as a result. Between the extra warmth and a few dollars saved, I have every reason to recommend looking into fireplace blowers.
