Wood burning is a good heating option but it cannot be a primary heating system in my views because of its negative effects on nature. Lots of smoke came through while we burning that kind of stove and as a result, it degrades the air quality around us. That's why I prefer pellet stoves because they are more eco-friendly than wood stoves, cheaper than wood stoves and takes fewer efforts to maintain. I bought a pellet stove in the last winters and this guide helps me to choose the best one in my budget. You can also check it to make yourself double sure.

Referencing R303.8 Required heating--
The last line
"The installation of one or more portable space heaters shall not be used to achieve complaince with this section."
In that only portable space heaters are prohibited to be considered to provide the required heating, then the use of fixed vented space or room heaters, including solid fueled, is implied to be permitted.
Note that the programmable thermostat requirement in 2009 IRC N1103.1.1 only applies to forced air furnaces--as worded and given the definition of "Furnace" this only applies to vented equipment discharging through a duct system. A heat pump with electric strip backup would not require a programable thermostat, but would require that the strips not be activated if the compression heat can meet the demand in N1103.1.2.
Human interaction is also required to fill propane and oil tanks.
