As temperatures drop around the United States and heating costs rise, U.S. homeowners are turning to hearth products, including fireplaces, stoves, and inserts, to save on their fuel bills. The U.S. government predicts that heating costs will increase 10% this winter.

A poll commissioned by the Hearth, Patio, & Barbecue Association (HPBA) found that one in three American adults (36%) indicated they will have and use various hearth products in their home. Three-fourths of those who own or will own woodburning, gas, pellet, or corn stoves (76%), and a similar percentage of those who own high-efficiency woodburning fireplaces (79%), indicated the use of these products would be important parts of their plans for home heating costs over the next six months.

To help consumers navigate placement, product, and fuel choices, HPBA developed an online comparison, Consumer Guide: The Easy and Efficient Way to Heat Your Home, that highlights the differences between appliance options, fuels, approximate efficiency, and the estimated costs of product purchase and installation (www.hpba.org/HearthConsumerGuide).

HPBA also developed a calculator (www.hpba.org/fuelcalculator) for estimating purposes only, that can assist in determining the cost-saving benefits of various hearth products. The Association says that estimating the energy savings of a hearth product depends on the fuel, fuel cost, and the efficiency of the hearth appliance (along with operation and a home), so actual energy savings may vary.
