The No-Fuss Fuel


It’s hard to beat gas for sheer convenience.
City dwellers without easy access to cordwood, those living in condominiums or a home with little storage space, and busy people who don’t have time to fuss with the maintenance of a woodstove all appreciate the ease of using gas.

Gas stoves are certified to one of two standards: "decorative appliance" or "room heater." (This rating is clearly labeled on the stove.) Decorative appliances are attractive but they are not designed to heat a room, nor are they efficient. Room heaters, such as a Hearthstone gas-fired stove, are serious heating units, subject to stringent efficiency standards. At Hearthstone, our goal is to provide you with both aesthetics and efficiency!

Aside from its convenience, gas is also a reliable choice for areas where power outages are common. Hearthstone gas stoves are equipped with a pilot light (a constant, tiny flame used to ignite the main burner) and require no household current for operation and so remain a working heat source during a power failure. If the pilot light ever goes out, a safety switch automatically shuts off the gas supply.

For ultimate convenience, Hearthstone gas stoves are thermostatically controlled, so the heat is completely adjustable. You set the temperature with controls on the unit or with a wall thermostat. The heat is as steady and consistent as a furnace. Several of our units feature built-in fans to help distribute the warmed air. You can accessorize your stove with a remote control, allowing you to operate your stove from your easy chair. Article, compliments of Hearthstone.
