Do home insurance companies cover properties with wood-burning stoves?
"I think I've found my dream home in Vermont, but this place has a wood-burning stove that acts as a secondary heat source. Will home insurance cover this property, or are wood stoves a dealbreaker for insurers?
“Good news — wood-burning stoves/fireplaces are not a dealbreaker for getting homeowners insurance! Most insurance companies will ask if it was installed by a professional, and it’s your job to make sure that the chimney is in clean, working order.
There may be a small surcharge applied to your premium for having a wood-burning stove in the home, but other than that, most companies will accept them. “
