If you find wood cumbersome to keep around, but like the function of a wood stove, then a pellet stove would be a good option. Home Depot has a nice selection of different pellet burning stoves in various price ranges and sizes. Pellet stoves are efficient and work well to use as a heat source - not only does a pellet stove spread atmosphere in a room, it also fills a function by retaining and spreading warmth.
So if you live in an area that gets cold in the winter and you would like an alternative way of heating your home, then a pellet stove can really be a good option. There are a couple of great things about having a pellet stove:
- They looks good, spreads atmosphere and provide a focal point.
- They are energy efficient and won't loose heat as a regular fire place does.
- Pellets are environmentally friendly and cheap to purchase.
- They are available in various sizes, so you can find one that fits your room or house.
Another thing that is really nice about these type of pellet stove is that they add such a nice old fashioned feel to a home. Humans are naturally attracted to fire and warmth, and you can clearly see that when you walk into a room with a stove like these: people gather around it, and don't mind pulling up a chair next to the stove and enjoying the direct heat. Overall it's simply a really nice addition to a home, so if you're considering various heating sources, then this would be a great one to choose.
