Wood Stoves, Fireplaces & Inserts
No one can deny the beauty, comfort, and warmth of a real wood fire. But the best thing about today’s wood stoves and fireplaces is that they’re designed to be more efficient, more convenient, and more environmentally-friendly than ever before. That means you can enjoy more warmth and relaxation with less effort and less worry about emissions.
Let’s take a look at the pros of today’s wood stoves and fireplaces:
The Pros Of Wood
- Pro #1: Wood is a renewable, affordable (sometimes free) fuel source that doesn’t experience price spikes or shortages. That means you can always get more fuel, and you don’t have to worry about buying in bulk when prices are at their lowest point.
- Pro #2: One of the most important times to have supplemental heat is when you lose power, and since wood fireplaces and stoves don’t require electricity to work, they can be a big answer to prayers during those times. With wood, you can keep your family warm, even during the worst storms.
- Pro #3: Real wood fires have brought people together for comfort, warmth, and conversation for decades. For many families, there’s still nothing better than a night spent by the fire. Less screen time + more time around the fire? Now that’s a win.
Here at The House of Fire, you’ll find many great wood fireplaces and stoves to choose from. Take a look at our featured appliances below, and as always, let us know if you have any questions.

Looking for zone heating or an appliance that can heat your medium or large home? With over 72,400 BTUs/hour, this simple steel stove is designed to heat spaces anywhere from 1,200 sq. feet to 2,000 sq. feet in size. The steady state efficiency rating with the Republic is 78.8%, and you can enjoy a burn time of up to 10 hours. That means more time relaxing and soaking up the warmth. This particular model also features a cooktop surface, which is especially helpful during power outages, or just when you need to keep the kettle warm.

Need something that’s a little bit more stylish and capable of providing even more heat than the Republic? Check out the cast iron Cape Cod, which has a heat output of 86,000 BTUs/hour and can heat spaces up to 2,500 sq. feet in size. This is the world’s “cleanest burning, large 3 cubic foot firebox, cast iron stove,” and it makes use of what’s known as “Hybrid-Fyre™” technology to achieve higher efficiency ratings (up to 80.1%). That means more heat, less wood, and less time and money spent maintaining comfort levels. Build your fire using logs as large as 24”, and enjoy burn times up to 12 hours.
For evenly distributed heat that circulates throughout your home (up to 2,500 sq. feet), consider the 36 Elite™. This is a large, heavy gauge steel, EPA-certified catalytic wood burning fireplace that features the highest efficiency rating in its class (73%). It heats the home much like a furnace would, and relies on the Posi-Pressure heating system to circulate that warm air evenly.
