Looking for a Hearth Appliance? What's Right for You?
There are many factors in choosing a "hearth appliance." That's industry jargon for fireplace or woodstove. But there are so many kinds of "appliances" now that its too simple to just call them fireplaces or wood stoves.
What you get depends on many factors:
What fuel source do you want to use? Wood, gas, pellet, propane, or other biomass fuels.
Are you replacing an existing woodstove?
Do you have an existing fireplace and chimney or do you want something that can go "anywhere" like a free standing stove?
Are you purchasing it for mostly heating purposes or for ambiance?
What ever you do, we advise consumers to see these appliances "in action" at a local OHPBA member retial store. Seeing them run will answer a lot of questions!
