USA: Gas Stoves: Gas Stove Manufacturers
ABOUT GAS STOVES
This product guide describes gas stoves for heating rooms, not gas stoves for cooking. Most room heating gas stoves are based on designs for wood burning stoves, adapted to use gas as a fuel. They provide the look of a wood burning stove, using ceramic fiber log sets and multiple flames to produce a realistic imitation of a wood log fire.
Gas stoves can be provided with direct vent systems, which avoid the need for a chimney. They can be placed against any outside wall, with a horizontal vent to the outside. They can also be placed in any position which gives direct access to the roof. Gas stoves can operate with either natural or propane gas.
Gas stoves do not give the full look and smell of a wood stove, but have great advantages in terms of convenience.
