Add Heat & Ambiance To Your Space With A Wood-Burning Or Gas-Burning Free-Standing Stove!
Wishing for that hearthside warmth and ambiance without the expense and demolition associated with building a fireplace and chimney? Maybe it’s time to consider a free-standing stove!
These zone heaters can be used to enhance just about any living space and don’t require a chimney system or construction services. We simply install them in whichever space you’re considering, checking for clearance from combustibles and ensure that the stove is working properly and that the floor and walls are protected.
Gas Vs. Wood – Choosing The Right Stove For You
When you’re choosing a free-standing stove for your space, it can be difficult to know which fuel will best fit your needs, wood or gas. Here are a few of the major differences, including perks and downsides:
- Storage – With a gas-burning stove, the fuel is piped directly into the stove, meaning there is no need for storage space. A wood-burning stove, however, will require storage space for your wood logs.
- Ease of Use – Although most modern stoves (both wood and gas) are incredibly easy to use, a gas stove is as simple as a switch, a remote control, or a button. A wood stove will require a little more effort, and will require maintenance from fire to fire, like ash removal.
- Heat Output – Although gas-burning stoves can add warmth, they simply can’t compete with the heat output of a wood-burning stove. If you’re looking to add serious supplemental heat, a wood stove is probably your best bet.
- Flame – Gas-burning stoves of today have come a long way in terms of flame. In the past, the flames couldn’t hold a candle to a wood-burning stove, but today’s are incredibly realistic!
