In the dark, cold days of fall and winter a fireplace or stove is the center piece of your home. Now that there are dozens of varieties on the market, there is no better time to adopt the stove lifestyle. Due to its various uses, an electric, wood or gas stove offers many benefits throughout the year.
• Heating the space you’re using, not the entire house. A stove allows you to warm up the room you’re using, without wasting forced air or radiated heating to warm up the entire house unnecessarily.
• Heating or cooking food.Depending upon the model, you may be able to heat or cook food on top of the stove. Some models are not built with this function, to maintain safety, but those that are can provide solace when the power is out.
• Add ambiance and warmth to your home. A fireplace stove adds the beauty and classic look of a fireplace in a contained, safe unit. The result is beautiful and ambient without being difficult to maintain and messy.
