Hearthstone Wood Stoves is an American company located in Vermont, They offer many unique, beautiful wood stoves divided into 3 individual collections for every individual style and purpose.
Hearthstone believes that while burning wood creates a romantic ambiance, beautiful flame, and relaxing warmth, it also is a very economical way to heat one's home. They consider wood to be a reliable and clean source of heat and with the strict EPA regulations, today’s wood stoves are much more efficient and have a higher BTU capacity than gas.
Hearthstone is noted for the most popular soapstone stoves in the market. Natural soapstone is a metamorphic rock which can withstand high variances in temperature as well as fire. It has the ability to retain heat as well as direct flame indefinitely. The stove's firebox is constructed with this material giveing it longevity which lasts longer than steel, cast iron and refractory bricks often used in other wood stove designs. The stone slab forms both the interior wall, which absorbs the heat from the fire and the exterior wall which is polished and radiates heat into the room.
Once heated, it stays warm for hours, long after the fire has gone out. It is a gentle, even and comfortable heat, with the surface temperature of the stove less hot, thus making it much safer for homes with young children and pets. In addition to the efficiency and effectiveness of soapstone stoves, the actual stone has attractive veining and natural patterns that add a decorative touch.
