Wood stoves today are returning in popularity thanks to more than a decade of research and development by stove manufacturers. Porcelain, soapstone, and cast iron are a few of the materials they are using to create unique and functional wood stoves. They also come in a medium gloss porcelain enamel finish that allows a wide variety of designer colors. They are an acceptable alternative to fireplaces and have some added features and benefits.
Today wood stoves come in all shapes and sizes and can be used for indoor and outdoor installations. Antique wood stoves especially, have enjoyed a rebirth in popularity due to their low cost and stylish designs. They burn wood more efficiently and cleaner than traditional types of wood stoves. In fact, most wood stoves developed even as early as the 1990s can provide a near smokeless burn, producing maximum heat while using less firewood. U.S. EPA standards in the 90s have ensured that modern products produce less than 7.5 grams of smoke per hour. That's more than 5 times less than the smoke emitted by similar products in the 1970s and 1980s!
