Better Insulation, a Wood Burning Stove, or Both?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 01, 2013

Improving home insulation could be getting overlooked in favor of wood burning stoves. While the intent behind wood stoves is for greener living, when there is poor insulation, adding a wood burning stove to our home doesn’t necessarily mean we’re living greener or making our homes more energy efficient.

There has been a large increase in wood burning stove sales over the last 2 years. Wood burning stoves are fashionable and popular right now, for good reason. The cold winters, rising energy prices and the recession that is putting a strain on wallets, along with the desire for green living have all fueled demand for wood burning stoves.

However, it could be the case that better home insulation could make homes considerably warmer and reduce the need to for a new heat source. Without the right insulation in your home, even after a wood burning stove has been installed all that extra heat will be lost.

Insulation is about having a draft free, efficient home that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The right insulation helps you get the most benefit out of your home heating and cooling systems while hopefully reducing your energy bills.

Wood burning stoves are a great and attractive way to heat your home. They are a greener alternative and they use biofuel, all of these features make them attractive. However, without the right insulation in your home, you will still waste money and you still won’t be warm in the winter.
