Wood stoves – An Architect’s Buying Guide ( what you need to know )



For my related video on firewood storage: https://youtu.be/-TYWFI1UMc0

In this video I present a comprehensive buying guide – a primer on what you need to know before buying a wood stove.
Topics include:
Material selection – Steel vs. Cast Iron
Cost
Stove Output (BTU vs. Size)
Firebox size
Efficiency
Catalytic vs. Non-Catalytic
Flue (Interior and Exterior)
Hearth Protection
Wood Storage
Ash pan
Aesthetics
Maintenance

Acquiring, stacking and moving wood will become a part of your life. I personally embrace these as part of my choice to live in a cold climate, and I feel like the added effort is good for both myself and the environment — but it’s certainly not for everyone.
