WHAT TO CHOOSE

Fireplace or stove? 

Things to consider before you decide:

 

  • How large is the area to be heated?
  • Where should the fireplace be placed?
  • Should it be the main heating appliance in the house or only supply additional heat?
  • A newer house may have special requirements to the fireplace or stove.
