For efficient heating, the classic wood-burning stove has advantages over traditional fireplaces. A stove can be up to 60% more efficient than an open fireplace, keeping more warmth in your room rather than sending it up the chimney.

Thanks to technology changes, stoves are no longer reliant on just burning wood. Options like pellet-burning stoves, gas stoves and even electric “wood” stoves provide greater efficiency, convenience and more installation flexibility. Embers can also install an insert into an existing fireplace to make it function like a wood burning, pellet burning or gas stove.
