Factor #4: Installation Type


There are different types of stoves for different applications: 

Free-standing stoves


Most stoves sit on a hearth, and are connected to a round hole in the chimney, by means of a stovepipe. These are free-standing stoves. 

Fireplace inserts


If you have an open fireplace and you want more heat, you can have a high-efficiency wood stove installed partway or all the way in the fireplace. These are fireplace inserts. 

Note: It is critical for fire safety that all stoves, including inserts, be installed correctly, according to codes. Hire a professional to install one.
