Consequently, can you put a wood stove in the basement?
A basement is not a good location for effective space heating. Unfinished basements are particularly bad locations because too much of the heat is absorbed by the walls and lost to the outside. Also, wood stoves operating in basements may over-fire or smolder without anyone noticing.
Also Know, how do I circulate the heat from my pellet stove in the basement? A pellet stove installed in your basement does not circulate heat around your house as efficiently as a furnace with an electric fan and dedicated ducts. Cutting a few vents in the floor can certainly help. But you're still relying on natural convection for heat distribution.
Similarly, it is asked, should I put a wood stove in my house?
Adding a wood stove is an energy-efficient way to bring a cozy feeling to your house. Unlike fireplaces, wood stoves can heat a whole room or possibly even your whole house, depending on its layout. And their prefabricated chimney pipes let you install them practically anywhere—even in front of an existing hearth.
Where should a wood stove be placed in a house?
The ideal location for a wood stove is close to the center of the area to be heated. This gives the best heat distribution. Avoid locating it near an exterior wall as this increases the heat loss to the outside, and decreases the heat gained from the stove.
