Antique Wood Stove

Open fireplaces are not efficient way to heat a room. Too much heat and chemicals escape through the fireplace. Also, once the fire is out, there is no more heat radiating from the fireplace. When a fire goes cold in a fireplace, the entire room goes cold with it. This can be very inconvenient, and can take a great deal of fuel and energy. As a result of this inefficiency, people began developing stoves in the early nineteenth century. The most famous of these is the Franklin stove, which prompted several more designs throughout the century. Because the wood stoves were so popular, and continued to be popular through the twentieth century, antique wood stoves are easily found and highly sought after.

An antique wood stove can be more than just a pretty piece of antique furniture. They were designed to optimize heat and BTU output. They were also designed to fit into small homes and cabins throughout the country. They are extremely durable and have held up well over the past one hundred years. An antique stove that is not in great condition can be refurbished. If it is cleaned and maintained properly, it can still last for years to come. Your old-fashion wood burning stove can also be great for remodeled homes, or homes designed to have an old-fashioned or Victorian aesthetic.
