Freestanding stoves are an attractive and efficient way to add supplemental zone heating to any living space. They are engineered to get the most heat out of the fuel you are using while also providing the warmth and enjoyment that comes from watching a fire. And they feature a wide array of high-quality styling options that will easily complement any décor.

There are three main types to consider: freestanding wood stoves, freestanding direct vent gas stoves and freestanding pellet stoves. They differ in fuel type, installation flexibility, features and energy efficiency. You will find a wide range of sizes and design styles depending on the type you choose.

FREESTANDING WOOD STOVES

High-efficiency wood stoves don’t just look beautiful. They’re also powerful heating appliances. These EPA-certified models undergo rigorous testing and meet or exceed stringent emissions limits to ensure efficient and responsible wood burning. Look for variable-rate control models that allow you to regulate wood use. This allows you to enjoy the fire longer and put more heat into your home, not up the chimney. Blower kits are available to help distribute the heat for additional comfort and control.

FREESTANDING DIRECT VENT GAS STOVES

These freestanding stoves offer a great balance between style, heating efficiency and installation flexibility. Direct vent gas stoves are designed with sealed glass fronts and are vented using a special two-wall vent system. This sealed system uses an outer vent wall to bring combustion air into the fireplace. Then, all the exhaust exits through the inner vent wall. This makes these stoves a very efficient heat source since they don’t lose air and circulate heat.

Freestanding Direct Vent Gas Stove Features
  • Available as a steel cabinet with a pedestal base and/or cast-iron cabinet with legs
  • Circulating design and ceramic glass offer optimal heat transfer
  • Special co-axial vent system may be run vertically, horizontally or a combination of both for optimal design flexibility
  • 65% to 85% heat-efficient models offer superb zone heating capabilities
  • Millivolt control models offer reliable on/off operation with remote control capabilities
  • Electronic ignition control models feature gas-saving intermittent pilot ignition and seamless battery backup that provides continued operation in the event of a power failure
  • Wall switch, on/off remote controls and multifunction remote controls are available for easy stove and features operation
  • Radiant heat and blower-assisted warm air circulation offer balanced comfort
  • A variety of exterior trim options are available to match your home

FREESTANDING PELLET STOVES

Freestanding pellet stoves combine the benefits of high-efficiency wood burning with the convenience of gas. Wood logs are replaced with small hardwood pellets commonly available in 40-pound bags. Pellet stoves work by storing the pellets in a hopper where an electric auger delivers them to a burn chamber as needed. A blower draws in air for combustion and then forces the exhaust fumes outside, allowing for both vertical and horizontal venting installations. Operate manually or add a thermostat control option for the ultimate in comfort and control.

Freestanding Pellet Stove Features
  • Available as a steel cabinet with a pedestal base
  • Type-L Pellet vent system may be run vertically, horizontally or a combination of both for optimal design flexibility
  • 85% heat-efficient models offer superb zone heating capabilities
  • Large, easy-to-load hopper requires less loading and ensures longer burn times
  • Self-ignition system delivers hassle-free automatic starts
  • Sealed blower and auger assembly ensures quiet operation
  • Heavy-duty welded steel heat exchangers for efficient heat transfer
  • Several optional thermostat and on-off remote control kits are available for added convenience
  • Radiant heat and blower-assisted warm air circulation offer balanced comfort
  • A variety of exterior trim options are available to enhance the finished appearance to taste
