Owners of pellet stoves like Quadra-Fire's Santa Fe can control the intensity of their fires with the flick of a switch. The units use compressed pellets—recycled from wood scraps or cornhusks—which burn hotter and cleaner than wood logs. Despite its compact design (25 7/16 inches wide by 27¾ inches tall by 21 3/16 inches deep), the stove can heat up to 1,500 square feet of surrounding area. Trim options include gold and brushed nickel. Quadra-Fire, 800.926.4356
