← Back to Heating with Gas

Gas is a reliable and easy to use fuel that can provide a fire every bit as lovely as a wood fire without the fuss and bother of toting firewood and contending with ash removal. No electricity required!

Many Maine customers opt to zone heat with a gas fired heating appliance to create a warm and inviting gathering area while also turning down their central heating thermostats for significant annual fuel costs savings.

Optional features allow you to have a beautiful fire at the touch of a switch, thermostat or even a remote control. Our gas stoves can burn either natural gas or propane (LP). Like our wood stoves, they are designed to either provide aesthetics or to produce heat.

Direct-vent stoves can vent directly through the wall, many times with no vertical rise in the venting at all. This new technology is great for apartments and condominiums or unusual applications such as under a window. Direct-vent units pull combustion air for the fire from outside the home and exhausts the burned gasses through the same vent system. This combustion process is completely sealed from the living area eliminating concerns about indoor air quality and results in a balanced burn that is not affected by fans or other drafts.

  • Hearthstone Champlain 8302 IPI & 8303 standing pilot

    Hearthstone gas heating stoves are constructed using fine-lined European cast iron. The quality of our iron is displayed in the intricate details of each stove and the overall craftsmanship of the finished product. Our gas fires are awe-inspiring, boasting sculpted ceramic logs and a warm, flickering glow. Protective screens, integrated into each stove, create a low profile appearance that nearly disappears when the fire is burning.

    In addition to large viewing areas, all Hearthstone gas stoves incorporate a cast iron heat exchanger, pulling heat out of the firebox and increasing the warm convective air flow. As an on-demand heat source, Hearthstone stoves are the perfect zone heating solutions delivering the heat you want, when and where you want it.

    All of Hearthstone's gas products are remote control operated. Turn the stove on and off, adjust the heat output, or program the stove to fit your lifestyle. The 8302's on-demand pilot system saves you money by turning off the pilot after an extended period of inactivity and comes with the remote control standard.  The 8303 offers an automatic valve with a dependable standing pilot, and the remote control is an option.
