How to choose a wood stove
Before deciding on one brand or another, it is important to know how to distinguish which model interests us. For example, here we have talked about wood stoves, which differ from fireplaces, cassettes, or inserts, although they are often thought to be the same.
Just knowing how to install a wood stove is enough to see that it’s not the same as a fireplace. The former is never embedded in the wall; instead, it is placed outside with the pipe visible, whereas a fireplace always has the pipe hidden and often is built into the wall.
Furthermore, fireplace doors are optional, although highly recommended as we have mentioned before. However, wood stoves always have a door.
Once everything is clarified, when buying a wood stove, we need to consider the material or budget we have. Sheet metal stoves heat up faster than wrought iron ones and are usually more affordable, while the latter have the advantage of providing more consistent heat and being more durable.
