Woodstoves are more popular because they burn cleaner while still providing heat to your home without needing electricity or batteries—which makes them great if you live off-grid on a property that doesn’t have access to utility power lines. They also tend to be much more affordable compared to other types of fireplaces due to less moving parts (meaning it’ll last longer!) Woodstoves provide radiant warmth instead of convection currents like a traditional fireplace, so they’re preferred by those who like to sit close and enjoy the relaxing warmth of a crackling fire.
Woodstoves are also less expensive than pellet stoves or open flame models, with prices starting at just $599 for installation plus another cost of around $300 per year on fuel depending on usage habits. What’s more, these appliances tend to be much safer than traditional fireplaces because you have direct access to them while burning which means it’s easier to keep an eye out for any issues that might occur during operation—like potential blockages in your chimney caused by birds/insects nesting inside! This is especially important if you have children running around your home since their curiosity could them into danger when playing near your fireplace.
Are generally more expensive than open flame models, starting at around $800 for installation plus an additional cost of up to about $200 per year on fuel depending on usage habits—not including the price of pellet refills which will vary by where you live and local prices. A huge perk with these types is that they’re easier to clean out if ashes get too hot during operation since most have fireboxes made from porcelain/cast iron instead of metal grates like woodstoves do. Plus, it’s safer because there are no flames coming directly in contact with combustibles or your clothes while burning! However, this type tends to make a lot more noise when operating compared to other options due to fans dispersing heat into your home.
