Buying a Clean Burning Wood Stove (FS-939)

People chose to heat with wood for many different reasons. Your own personal priorities will help you decide what type of heater is best for you. Are you mainly looking to save money or decrease your fossil fuel consumption? Do you have a large or small space to heat? Do you value automation or want something hands-on? Do you live in an urban or rural area? These are all questions that will likely determine what type of wood,pellet stove, or boiler you should get.
