Are you undecided whether to buy
a wood-burning stove or a pellet stove?

Read on, where we will present you with a general overview of the characteristics of the two types of stoves.

The biggest difference between a wood-burning stove and a pellet stove is that, while for the first you have to use wood, for the second you use wood pellets. This means, among other aspects, that you don’t have to fill the wood-burning stove several times a day. However, pellets are often more expensive than normal wood. But there are also other advantages, which are worth knowing, before deciding which type of stove is best suited for your home.

Wood-burning stove - traditional atmosphere and good warmth

Many connect a wood-burning stove with the “real” atmosphere. Traditional wood is burned with it, you can lose yourself in the play of dancing flames and burning coal, and you can hear the crackles when dry branches break. A wood-burning stove is equipped with a stove to which you can adjust the air and consequently the temperature inside the stove. Most new stoves are of the convection type, which are distinguished by an external hood that is open at the bottom and top. The air heats up between the outer cover and the stove itself, after which the hot air is released from the stove and circulates in the room. A wood-burning stove is therefore capable of circulating heat around the house.

Pellet stove - automatic control and longer heat retention

An important feature of the pellet stove is that it is equipped with a storage container for wood pellets, from which the stove itself feeds the wood-burning chamber with pellets and the thermostat regulates the quantity of pellets introduced, so that the temperature in the room always remains constant and pleasant. This means that without you having to lift a finger, the stove stays on for many hours and sometimes for days. A pellet stove is also equipped with a timer, which by itself automatically starts and stops the stove, by means of a small heating wire that lights up the wood-burning chamber.

Advantages vs. disadvantages regarding the two types of stoves

Which stove is best suited for your home depends on your needs – and there are pros and cons with both types of stoves. A notable advantage with a wood-burning stove is that the raw material has a low price, while wood pellets are often more expensive. A wood-burning stove often costs less than a pellet stove. One of the greatest advantages with the pellet stove is that it is controlled automatically and therefore you can keep the heat for a long time without lifting a finger. Instead, a wood-burning stove requires more attention. For example you have to constantly fill with wood and check the fire, that does not last as long as in a pellet stove. A pellet stove burns wood pellets, meaning you don’t need to cut and stack the wood. Even for anyone who considers this a part of the beauty of a stove, it could prove to be a chore.

So what is the best choice?

If you are looking for as little work as possible and you just want to stretch out and enjoy the heat and if you can afford it, then the ideal choice is a pellet stove. But if you want to save as much as possible and don’t mind cutting wood and filling the stove continuously, the wood-burning stove is a good option.

Bring the atmosphere into your home

Regardless of whether you choose to invest in a wood-burning stove or in a pellet stove, you will have a pleasant addition to your home. You will be able to gather family and friends around the beautiful scenographies of the flames, and you can also use it all year round, both in the winter and in the summer months.
