Opting For A Free-Standing Wood Stove

There’s simply nothing like the crackle and warmth of a wood fire. But, sometimes you want to enjoy that warmth and ambiance in another room in your home. That’s where free-standing wood stoves come in.

Free-standing wood stoves offer the warmth and classic appeal of wood-burning appliances, while also offering a variety of placement options. These stoves are designed to work without a chimney and don’t require a traditional installation or a noisy fan. You can basically place your free-standing wood stove wherever you are in need of heat as long as it is a safe distance from combustibles. The convenience of placement is one of the biggest selling points for these stoves, and since they function independently of a chimney system, the condition of your existing chimney (if you have one) is irrelevant. That means no chimney inspections, costly repairs, or prep required!

Free-standing wood stoves also don’t require the use of utilities. You simply feed the fire with more fuel. This is an added advantage during blizzards and other storms that leave you without power. With a free-standing wood stove, your family’s warmth doesn’t have to depend on the speed of utility companies.

Another added bonus of these stoves is that they typically have an area on top for cooking or heating food. This is especially convenient when there are too many cooks in the kitchen or when you need to keep that homemade pie warm during dinner. And remember, since it functions independently of utilities, you can use your free-standing wood stove to cook during power outages.

Choosing a wood-burning appliance also means money-saving. Wood is a renewable resource that can be purchased in pretty much any area of the country at any given time of year. Wood prices don’t change frequently like they sometimes can with other fuel types. For the homeowner that wants consistent prices and ease of purchase, it doesn’t get much better than wood.

In addition to the convenience of a free-standing wood-burning stove, many homeowners go this route for environmental reasons. These stoves are generally cleaner burning than wood fireplaces, which means less creosote, less smoke, less cleaning and less guilt. Typical maintenance in between professional visits consists of simply removing ashes from the slide out tray. Now, that’s not so bad! If you’d like to find out which free-standing wood stoves are EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) tested and approved, contact a Magic Broom professional today.
