Depending on the size of your room and how important the fireplace is to serve as a heat source, you’ll want to consider the size needed when purchasing a new wood fireplace.
Pellet stoves come in two basic styles. Fireplace inserts are set into a home’s existing fireplace, utilizing the same chimney and flue. Freestanding units can be placed anywhere in a room once proper floor guards and vents (specifically intended for wood-burning stoves) have been installed.
Either option will need to be situated near an electrical source to run the automated features of the stove. As for as the appearance, pellet stoves can be found in a wide range of designs, from old-fashioned to modern and from ornately decorated to streamlined.
Pellet stoves, depending on size and styling, sell for somewhat higher price than traditional wood-burning stoves owing to the automated features built into each unit. Installation costs usually fall in the same range as in wood burning installation but are worth the expense. When introducing any wood-burning unit to the home, be sure it meets local safety codes.
The pellets themselves are typically sold in 40-pound bags for $5 to $8 (or by the ton for about $250; similar in price to a cord of firewood). Before committing to a pellet stove, research pellet availability in your area, as supplies and costs vary depending on factors—whether there are pellet mills nearby or they will need to be shipped a long distance, for instance.
