ABOUT WOOD STOVES
Modern wood stoves are designed to burn the wood at high temperature, reducing air pollution. They are usually made from iron, and may incorporate soapstone. The soapstone produces high burning temperatures, and also retains heat and radiates this after the fire has burned down. Wood stoves may be catalytic or non-catalytic. Catalytic stoves incorporate a catalytic converter which causes combustion of the gas and smoke particles which have not previously been burned. Non-catalytic stoves can also achieve clean burning by re-circulating the exhaust air. Since the late 1980s the Environmental Protection Agency has set stricter emission standards, limiting smoke output to 7.5 grams per hour.
For optimum efficiency, the stove should be located centrally in the main floor living area of the house, with the flue pipe running straight up into the chimney. Heated air will then rise naturally to provide some heating to the upper floor of the house.

HearthStone Stoves. HearthStone wood stoves are manufactured in Vermont. High quality materials are used. For example, the baked enamel finishes are fired to 1,500 degrees to provide characteristic luster and shine, and for chip and tarnish resistance. All secondary air tubes are made from stainless steel, to resist corrosion. HearthStone stoves are non-catalytic, making them easier to operate and maintain. The air wash system incorporated in each stove prevents the window glass from fogging or discoloring, to maintain a view of the burning wood.
Woodstock Soapstone Company. Woodstock Soapstone Company, based in West Lebanon, New Hampshire, manufactures stoves made from iron castings and double walls of soapstone. The designs are based on soapstone stoves made in New Hampshire since the 1860s. The firebox has inside walls of soapstone and a firebrick-lined base. The soapstone keeps combustion temperatures high for clean burning. The soapstone also stores heat and radiates it long after the fire has burned down. The bed of ashes remains hot for ten to twelve hours after the fire has burned down.
