If you would like to provide a reliable source of heat in your home or cabin without taking up too much space or building too large of a fire, then you may want to consider purchasing a small wood stove. These heating units are incredibly effective and are still able to maintain the majesty and ambiance of a traditional wood stove without taking up so much space or sacrificing quality.
First, if you live in a fairly rural area and have outlets where you can easily obtain firewood, then you definitely may want to consider purchasing a small wood stove. Also, if you’re looking at small wood stoves, you want to make sure that it burns wood efficiently so you can create a sufficient amount of heat. Each model should list whether it is EPA-certified and it should also tell you how much space can be heated. So, if you plan on buying a small woodstove, make sure to check the heating capacity before purchasing.
Next, you’ll want to evaluate that maximum log length that can be inserted into your small woodstove. For instance, you don’t want to end up ordering a couple loads of pre-cut firewood that is too long for your small woodstove. To be safe, you should also check to see if the product comes with a fire screen and rear heat shield. If you’d like to add a cool effect to your small woodstove, you can also purchase a model that comes pre-equipped with a fully functional cooking plate. Finally, you’ll definitely want to check the warranty information to make sure that you’re getting a small woodstove that is well protected and reliable.
