Wood Pellets

- Positives

  • They’re easy to use: ignites at the push of a button. No kindling or tending to the fire required.
  • Cleaning is a breeze. There’s no creosote buildup and less ash volume compared to wood.
  • Bags are easier to transport, handle and stack.
  • Pellets take up less storage space than firewood.
  • You have greater temperature control. Turn a thermostat dial to get the perfect temperature.
  • They’re eco-friendly because there’s very little air pollution. Pellets burn cleaner than wood.

- Negatives

  • It’s expensive to maintain compared to firewood and needs more upkeep than a fireplace.      
  • It needs a backup system like batteries or electricity to run in case of a power outage.

Gas

- Positives
  • Gas stoves require little maintenance, usually consisting of a yearly check-up
  • There is little to no cleaning needed as gas stoves produce no ash or creosote.
  • Gas stoves are very efficient, and can start producing heat immediately upon being turned on.

- Negatives

  • Natural gas prices fluctuate frequently
  • If the area you live in does not support the piping of natural gas (Like Lake County), using propane can be tedious and expensive.

Wood

- Positives

  • The net fuel cost is cheaper than heating oil, natural gas, or coal.
  • Fuel is widely available, renewable, and sustainable.
  • With proper engineering, wood-burning systems emit fewer pollutants into the air than coal and oil.

- Negatives


  • Wood systems require more space to store bulky fuel.
  • Waste ash that remains after burning needs proper, safe disposal.
  • Most sealed fireplaces require some electricity to operate circulating fans.




Electricity

- Pros

  • Electric fireplaces are very space efficient, not requiring a chimney or venting.
  • Electric fireplaces are the cheapest option, with the fuel being inexpensive, and the maintenance being very minimal.
  • Electric fireplaces have much more control over how much heat they output, very similar to an electric heater.
  • Electric fireplaces are much safer, have much less of a chance of causing a fire. They also do not create the toxic emissions produced by other fuel types.
- Cons
  • Electric heaters are not designed to heat large spaces, and produce less heat than other fuel types.
  • Electric heaters do not provide the ambience of your regular fireplaces. They have a flame that  appears very fake and do not make the same sounds that a fire would normally make.
  • Electric heaters can be dangerous when attached to an older or overloaded a circuit, and can blow a fuse or cause other technical difficulties.
  • If a power outage was to take place, you would not be able to use these to heat your home.
