I am thinking of moving into a house that heats with a wood stove. I know a homesteading family who heats with wood and their house is always cozy and awesome, but I just want to know how safe it is to heat with wood. The landlord is replacing the stove before I move in and is cleaning the chimney. Would you guys recommend it or not? There is no other heat so the rent is less because of the wood stove, and obviously the electricity would be more affordble and no gas.. so those all seem like good things but I was afraid of my gas heat cause of exploding apartments and all, I'm less afraid of wood but just want to be sure. Would you say it's more of less polluting than heating with gas or eletricity (I would assume it would be less??) Thanks!
