Outdoor wood stoves are generally used to heat both homes and external structures such as garages. Wood being a sustainable materiable and a renewable energy, makes wood stoves less expensive than other types of stove that may use fosill fuels such as coal or gas.
Outdoor wood stoves burn wood to create heat, this heat s used to heat water which is then pumped through pipes into the buildings, this is then utilised by an internal heating system to supply the water to various rooms using underfloor heating or radiators.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends wood burners over other fires due to the availability and renewability of the fuel. Wood is further better for the environment as it does not produce as much excess waste or pollutants as other fuels.
The long term costs of a wood stove are far less than other types as wood can be collected from woodlands, forests, old furniture (non varnished or painted), 30 to 40 percent of your fuel can be obtained at zero costs, if you live in rural areas this can increase dramatically.
Safety is also a factor when using wood burning stoves, having the stove outdoors removes the risk of indoor fires, it can also reduce dirt and dust accumilating.
Outdoor wood stoves are a great for people who want to heat a building efficiently but inexpensively. They are bit of extra work, but people in rural areas should consider using an outdoor wood stove to heat with.
