Freestanding stoves provide efficient heat for your home
Isn’t there something quaint and rustic about a freestanding stove? While these appliances add beauty to your décor, they are specifically designed to heat your home. Because they use a closed combustion system, stoves can provide over three times the heat of a traditional fireplace. While fireplaces tend to be used as supplemental heat, stoves can heat the entire floor of a house.
There are many other benefits to freestanding stoves, such as safety, efficiency, and maintenance. Stoves typically come in a variety of colors and styles, and are available in wood, gas, or pellet-burning options.
Stoves do require an independent chimney system, and your Flue Tech representative is happy to explain any modifications needed to your home prior to installation.
Wood Freestanding Stoves
Wood stoves bring a certain comfort to the home. Wood is a renewable, sustainable source, making it an eco-friendly option. The radiant heat of a wood stove can help you lower the thermostat and reduce your utility bills. A wood stove provides the reassurance that your house will always be warm, even during a blizzard that knocks your power out.
Gas Freestanding Stoves
Gas stoves are cleaner and more convenient, turning on and off with the flick of a switch or a remote control. Gas stoves are equipped with thermostats, allowing you to precisely control the temperature in the house. Natural gas emits fewer pollutants. Direct vent gas stoves use fresh air for combustion, sending exhaust outside and preserving the air quality in your home.
Pellet Freestanding Stoves
Pellet stoves burn pellets made from compressed sawdust and other organic materials, making it another eco-friendly option. While they look rustic, pellet stoves employ modern technology to function; electricity powers their fans, thermostat, and hopper. Pellet stoves burn at high temperatures and can be used as the sole source of heat, depending on the size and layout of your home. Pellets are becoming easier to find and require less storage space than logs. Regular cleaning is required to keep the stove functioning at top performance.
