PROPANE or Wood?
When you’re deciding between propane and wood, what do you need to consider?
- Cost. Heating your home with wood starts with the cost of the stove or furnace. This can range from $1,500 to $5,000, or higher. Wood delivery and stacking fees may also apply.
- Safety. From ongoing maintenance to issues with installation, the increased risk of fire with the use of pellet stoves, wood stoves or outdoor wood furnaces is worth considering.
- Convenience. With a propane stove, all you need to do is touch a button or flip a switch for heat on the spot. Think about all the time you would have spent hauling wood to your stove or furnace—not to mention cleaning out the ash afterward.
