Which Fuel Type Is Right For You?

Many people love the traditional look and feel of a wood-burning option, as there’s nothing like the smells and sounds of a crackling wood-burning flame on a cold winter evening. However, you should also remember all the effort associated with a wood-burning appliance. It requires hauling wood, building fires, and maintaining a steady flame throughout the evening. There is also clean up of the ashes and tidying up, when you are finish with the fire.

Gas and pellet-fueled appliances are a bit more low-maintenance. Gas options are best for those with a busy schedule. You simply flip a switch or push a button, and then you have a readily hot fire. There is no clean up necessary, and you don’t need to worry about waiting for flames to die either. Pellets offer more of a middle ground. They still give the ambiance of burning wood, but they don’t need to be constantly refueled. You simply have to fill the hopper, and you are good to go all day long.
