Eco-friendly ways to warm the heart as well as the home

A house is more than four walls and a roof. It should be a home, buzzing with activity one day, quiet the next, with loved ones around to celebrate the best moments of life.

Keeping the home warm should be taken seriously, weighing all of the options available to choose from, considering what will work best for the needs of the house, and understanding the heart of a home, and how to keep that pulse flowing as evenly as the heat that is being supplied.

Fortunately, there is a variety of eco-friendly stove and fireplace options to consider that are high quality and, of course, a beautiful addition to any room.

Pellet Stoves


A pellet stove is a great choice for heating the home, providing a steady burn, high-efficiency heat that cuts down on utility bills in the winter months. Increasing in popularity, this option can really give the necessary warmth without much extra hassle.

Some of the key things to know about pellet stoves are:

  • Many options are designed to fit into an existing fireplace setting but can also be freestanding, with a variety of design options to match any home decor.
  • They operate by burning wood pellets (compressed sawdust) rather than burning anything that will produce noxious fumes into the interior of the house.
  • They work at a high degree temp that burns the pellets without the risk of clogging.

Wood Stoves


Most people understand the basic concept of a wood stove and how it operates: put the wood in the stove, light the fire and enjoy the sounds while toes are being warmed. But what many may not realize is the fact that modern wood stoves can be just as efficient as any other option for warming the heart of the home.

Some of the key things to know about wood stoves are:

  • Firewood can be found virtually anywhere (even on an individual’s own property).
  • Firewood is a renewable energy source.
  • Wood stoves should be installed in a house’s central place to help distribute heat more evenly.

Gas Fireplaces


For many people, choosing a gas fireplace or stove makes the most sense. Not only do they provide a more modern look but they offer a degree of convenience that the other stove options don’t necessarily give. All without losing out on what makes having an in-home fireplace or stove so great: the comfort of cozying up to a crackling fire.

Some of the key things to know about gas fireplaces/stoves are:

  • It usually only takes the push of a button to turn a gas fireplace on.
  • Very little cleanup is actually involved.
  • High degree of efficiency in their heat output and warming capacity.
