Types of Stoves: Which Indoor Heating Option is Best for Me?
There’s just something about August—a whole lot of summer yet to be had but the anticipation of the season’s turn right around the corner. Late evenings spent outdoors may tempt you to put on a sweater. Meanwhile, retailers have an atmosphere of back-to-school items juxtaposed by leaf-covered tablecloths and Halloween candy.
Whether you’re wishing summer away or yearning for more, cool days and cooler nights are coming quickly, making it the perfect time to invest in a new or a replacement indoor heater! At AES Hearth & Patio, we have a wide range of options for our clients: energy-efficient, easy-to-install, modern upgrades, and tried-and-true varieties.
We firmly believe our customers should have the freedom to choose the right product that suits their needs at their particular stage of life. Let’s explore your options.
Electric stove heater
If you are a busy person, an electric stove heater requires less maintenance than the more traditional options. It offers zero manual work, except to dust it off from time to time. While also energy-efficient, electric stove heaters offer incredible realism without the cost of installation for traditional stoves, and some options even allow to showcase the flame without the heat.
Gas heating stoves
Gas heating stoves are another low-maintenance option for busy homeowners. This option is best for those who desire ambiance with minimal work, especially if they already have a gas line connected to their house. AES sells indoor gas heaters, stoves, and inserts that are subject to stringent efficiency standards. This choice is also great for areas where power outages are common, as the stoves are equipped with a pilot light and require no household current to operate.
Modern wood stove
If you want your heat expense to cost a fraction of the other options, a modern wood stove is your choice. You can break free from the utility companies with even, penetrating heat from a wood stove that comfortably warms every room in your home. All modern wood fireplaces manufactured are certified by the EPA and are designed to emit only a fraction of the smoke that older, non-certified stoves produced. It might take additional labor, but this is a traditional option that has stood the test of time.
Pellet stove heater
If you want something similar to a modern wood stove, but with a bit less work and higher environmental standard, a pellet stove heater is your choice! These stoves provide a host of environmentally friendly components including lower fuel emission rates. Pellets not only reduce dependence on finite supplies of fossil fuels like oil and gas, but they also put to use materials that would otherwise add to our waste disposal. A single loading of pellets can last many hours of warmth, so you don’t have to worry about refueling frequently, and it gives off an even, constant heat that is just like a wood stove.
If you are looking for the most affordable option, a coal stove may be the answer. Coal stoves are long-lasting and require less input than other stoves to meet similar output demands. Modern coal stoves are UL rated and burn hard anthracite coal more cleanly than in the past. A coal stove is a traditional method that many of our ancestors right here in Pennsylvania utilized for generations. Also, AES has Blashak coal that can be delivered to your home for convenience.
