Have you always wanted the look of a crackling fire on a cold New England winter evening? For many people, a fireplace is the epitome of comfort, and the idea of curling up on the couch under a cozy blanket in front of a snapping fire is the perfect way to relax after a hard day of work. But not everyone is fortunate enough to own a home with a fireplace or to have the room or the resources to add a fireplace to their home. Or maybe you do have space but just don’t want the work of cutting and storing wood, building a fire, and cleaning up afterward. If any of these reasons are keeping you from enjoying a cozy fire, you need to visit The Stove Store and ask us for ways to add the warmth and comfort of a fireplace to your home without actually adding a fireplace.
Positives of a Pellet Stove
There’s a lot of work that goes into building a fire. You need to cut the wood and make sure that it is cured properly. That takes at least six months, and longer is better. You’ll need space to store it, then you need to haul it in the house, and if it’s snowy out, make sure that it’s dried out, lay your firewood, and get it started. You can sit and enjoy the fire for a while, but then you’ll have to get up and feed that fire periodically through the evening. Some people find this relaxing, but some people like to just spend their night relaxing, sitting on the couch and not tending the fire. The solution to this is to get a pellet stove instead of a wood-burning stove or fireplace!
With a pellet stove, the sawdust pellets are stored in a hopper and augered into the stove, so there’s no need to find storage space and you won’t need to keep getting up to re-stoke your fire. A pellet stove has automatic ignition, so there’s no need to worry about getting a fire started. Just flip a switch and you have a fire going! They are designed to be efficient as well. An added benefit to a pellet burning stove is that they are environmentally friendly, burning pellets that are made of compressed sawdust.
If you’re looking to add a heat source, give The Stove Store a call and let us help you find the perfect stove for you. There are beautiful stoves that are built in the traditional style, and we have beautiful stoves that will give you the rustic look that you are looking for. But if you want something more modern, we have stoves that fit that style as well. When it comes to pellet stoves, The Stove Store knows all there is to know and we’d love to pass that knowledge on to you so that you can enjoy the warmth and comfort of a crackling fire with none of the work.
