Now that the weather is cooler, it’s time to buy that new heating appliance that you’ve been talking about! For most of us, the idea of installing a fireplace is not a possibility, if there is no space or if you are renting. Most homes don’t have a place where the flooring is strong enough to support a fireplace. However, there are a couple of really good options if you want the ambiance of a fire on a cold winter night!

Wood Stoves

Although it is not designed to heat a whole house, it works great for heat a room, and it also helps to save you money. Because you can keep the heat down in the rest of the house while you heat the room you are in. It is also relatively inexpensive to get the heat source.

Another great thing about wood stoves is that they can be put almost anywhere as long as you can vent the stove pipe to the outdoors. This makes it easy to rearrange your room so that the wood stove is just where you want it to be. Another good thing about a wood stove is that you can operate it even when the electricity goes off, which could come in handy when the power goes out during a snow storm.

Pellet Stove

Another good option is a pellet stove. If you are  concerned about the environment, then you will be happy to know that a pellet burner is a great, as it’s energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Pellets are the fuel source for your pellet stoves, and they are pushed into your appliance by a fan. These pellets are made of compressed wood, and they are easy to purchase, so it’s an easily accessible heat source too.
