They are the most flexible and versatile choice of home heating systems. They can perfectly fit almost everywhere in your house as long as there is adequate spacing to safely and seamlessly install the vent pipe. So, with wood stoves, you can zone-heat everywhere in your house regardless of the size and shape of the room.
Many furnaces are also equipped with glass doors that are especially necessary when the fireplace is warming up and can not deal with smoke and thus lets the bitter smell in the room. The glass cover helps to prevent it. The doors can be swinging or lifting. By the way, furnaces with a fireproof door are safer than open grates, and allow you to manage the flow of warm air much better and easier. The only drawback is that sometimes the heat-proof glass may be covered with soot.
Wood burning stoves are cost-effective. Unlike other home heating technologies that cost a fortune to purchase and maintain, wood stoves let you pleasantly heat your home without adding to your monthly expenditure. The price of wood stoves can't compare with even the cheapest electric and gas heating system in town. The price of wood fuel is almost 10% lower than the price of oil, electricity, and gas.
An electric fireplace runs on electricity, which is less expensive as compared to fuel and gas both. The heat is adjustable and can be set accordingly. This benefit was never available in traditional style as there was little control over how the fire looks. The fireplace is not heated up after usage, which reduces the chances of getting burnt accidentally. Especially with small children and pets, this is a significant advantage.
