Vogelzang 106,000 BTU Deluxe Boxwood Stove Be prepared for disasters and power outages. Having a wood stove will heat your house and cook your food. You can heat the water you need for bathing and washing your clothes. A power outage that lasts for weeks would only be an inconvenience instead of a total disaster where you are forced find shelter elsewhere or freeze.
Wood stoves will also cut down your electric bill or you can use it just as a back up in case of need. Whatever the reason a wood stove is a smart choice.
Be ready in case the power goes out or to save on a heating bill. If you have a fireplace then you already have your chimney so all you need to do is to put in a stove insert and you are ready to go. Be sure to clean out your chimney to prevent a house fire. Precautions need to be taken when heating with wood. My dad heats with wood and he borrows the cleaning tools from the local fire department each year. This saves him money by doing it himself and he doesn't have to buy the tools or pay for a chimney sweep. Remember to have a smoke detector and change the batteries. Have an escape plan and practice it often.

A pullet stove won't work for emergencies because they take electricity to run. However they look nice and you just have to keep it filled with pellets and don't have to cut your own wood. The downside is that pellets are more expensive than wood and you still have to carry heavy sacks of pellets to your stove.
Antique burning stoves are also fun to get. Just be careful that they don't leak smoke. The stores that sell to the Amish also have some nice wood cook ones that are very efficient to cook your food because they have to be practical.
