Wood-burning stoves are especially handy for people in cold climates, or in winter in some areas. Generally, they give off more heat than open fires, because the user can use air control inside the chamber to ensure the wood burns at a fastened rate.

A wood burning stove is a heating appliance in homes. They can burn either wood fuel or biomass fuel. Generally, wood stoves have a cast iron, steel, porcelain or soapstone exterior, a fire chamber, and an adjustable air control.

Wood-burning stoves are especially handy for people in cold climates, or in winter in some areas. Generally, they give off more heat than open fires, because the user can use air control inside the chamber to ensure the wood burns at a fastened rate. Unless they are connected to an air circulation system, a wood burning stove will primarily heat the local space. So, they are most useful in rooms where the residents tend to congregate.
