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, 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.
