Although many wood stoves have a classic appeal that resembles the centuries-old tradition of a woodburning fire, our modern stoves are much different than those in the age of Lincoln. The wood stoves we sell, install, and repair in Athens, NY, Germantown, NY, and throughout Hudson Valley are among the most clean-burning, energy-efficient, and versatile heating appliances ever built. With so many trendy styles and finishes, from the classic cast iron to the beauty of soapstone, you will enjoy the thrill of an authentic wood fire with the power to heat a room or an entire home. Plus, you will love the lower heating costs too!
Which is More Efficient: A Wood Stove or a Fireplace?
Wood stoves are typically more efficient than fireplaces because they better retain heat inside the firebox and convert it into energy. However, the newer manufactured fireplaces we sell and install here at Hudson Valley Chimney are essentially built-in stoves, dramatically more efficient than a traditional masonry fireplace. So it really boils down to personal space, style, preferences, and budget.
Benefits Of Using A Wood Stove
A wood stove offers many benefits over other heating methods. It is cheaper to operate and provides a warm and charming atmosphere with the soothing sounds, flames, and smells that a natural wood-burning fire experience offers.
- Versatility: We offer an outstanding selection of premium wood stoves in an array of exciting features and sizes. Some models can even double as a cooktop for that camping experience right in your living space. Naturally, they can also be installed in virtually any room in your home. In addition, many customers buy multiple stoves for zone heating - a big energy saver!
- Comfort: A wood stove also provides a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your home. The crackling fire is also very calming and will keep your living space comfortably warm on those chilly southeast NY winter nights. And while your neighbors are wrapped in blankets during a power outage, your wood stove will continue to keep you warm.
- Efficiency: Wood stoves have an efficiency of up to 80%, compared to just 15-20% for an open fireplace. In addition to losing less heat through the chimney, they can heat a larger area – up to 2,500 square feet, depending on the model and size.
- Sustainable: Wood is a sustainable and renewable energy resource. Burning wood is also carbon-neutral, so it doesn’t release any more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than a natural decaying tree in the forest.
