10 Easy Pieces: Freestanding Wood Stoves

Not your grandmother’s wood stove. A new generation of wood stoves offers high fuel efficiency, high combustion temperatures, and lower emissions. They’re powerful, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible heaters for your home.

Many of these new stoves combine the best of the old (baking/warming shelves, wood storage) with new technologies that greatly reduce ash, carbon emissions and lost heat. Best of all, when there is a burn ban, EPA Certified Stoves can keep on burning.

N.B.: Different stoves generate varying levels of heat. Be sure to consider a stove with heat output appropriate to the size of room where it will be located.
