Crackling wood, a pleasant heat coming from furnace, home comfort and warm the soul memories of the trip to grandma’s cottage. But as romantic and easy as it seems at first glance. What are the cons, still there?
So, minus the number one furnace heating suitable only for small areas. But to heat a large house or several rather big size of rooms is unlikely to succeed.
Difficulty number two is the mud oven regularly will need to be cleaned from the soot and clean the chimney, too, will have periodically. Add to all this firewood and coal, peat briquettes, too, in the end «will be a lot of money».

It is difficult to mount, plus you need a separate room under the boiler room. And if you have any problems with electricity, out of order all automatics.
To the prevention and maintenance you have regularly. And this is the time and cost.
But a boiler can run not only on diesel fuel. If desired, it can be transferred to the gas. At the time, the gasification of the whole country «the unofficial fifth national project of Russia.»
The most versatile type of heating is best for all indicators (technical and economic. Clean, comfortable, warm, and most importantly inexpensive.
