Gas stove/fireplace insert vs. pellet stove/fireplace insert?
At the risk of inciting the great debates about fireplaces again, I do have a question…
Which is more efficient, a gas stove/fireplace insert or a pellet stove/fireplace insert? They both have the potential to reduce bills through zone heating.
(I’m not talking about decorative logs with an clear opening to the chimney, but rather an encased stove or insert. Let’s also assume we’re avoiding anything ventless out of safety concerns.).
If looking at purchasing a gas system, what should one look for to ensure maximum efficiency?
