As the day become colder and colder, many homeowners are going to install a wood burning stove to heat up their houses. If you are one of them, maybe one thing you eager to know is how much the installation costs. If you can do this job by yourself, there is no doubt that you will save quite of bit of charge. But my suggestion is to hire a certified installer to install for you to avoid problems in the future. It surely costs more money initially, but you’ll have the peace of mind to know that you are using the wood burner safely.
If you are going to hire someone to install the stove, it doesn’t mean you have nothing to do. There is something you need to figure out before you speak to a certified installer.
1. What size of the wood stove is best for your house?
2. How much heat will the stove produce?
3. How to make sure the installation is safe enough?
4. In which place do you want the wood burner be installed?
If you already have an old fireplace and the wood burning stove can be inserted into it, it will only cost you no more than $200. If there is no exiting chimney in your house, the charge can go up very high. In many homes, these wood burning stoves can be installed in just a few hours – but if new chimney needs to be installed, the time will be much longer.
