Is a wood burning furnace worth it?
A wood burning stove can be worth it alone for the increased heat output from your fires compared to using open wood burning fireplaces, and you’ll save on firewood costs in the long run because you can control the fire more effectively in a wood stove to burn more slowly and efficiently.

Is it cheaper to burn wood or pellets?
Pellet fuel appliances are more convenient to operate than ordinary wood stoves or fireplaces, and some have much higher combustion and heating efficiencies. Most pellet stoves cost between $1,700 and $3,000. However, a pellet stove is often cheaper to install than a conventional wood-burning heater.
Is heating with wood cheaper?
Depending on what you pay for electricity, wood heat can be a very cost-effective alternative. For example, if you are paying $0.10 per KWH for energy charges plus delivery charges, fees, and taxes, wood pellets would save you about 50 percent on your heating bill, and cordwood would save even more.

Can a wood stove heat an entire house?
Wood stoves aren’t typically designed to heat an entire house but sized to warm a particular room in a home. However, installing a wood stove in the right location in a home, along with helping to circulate air between rooms, or using a stove boiler, can help to raise temperatures across a whole house.
How long do wood boilers last?
These units should last 20 to 25 years or more if they are used and maintained properly.
How do wood furnaces work?
The furnace works by burning wood to heat water. The heated water is circulated through insulated underground pipes called insulated pex pipe to the buildings being heated. From there it connects to your forced air, in-floor radiant, or indoor boiler heating system and sends the heat around your home.
