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.

What is the benefit of a Standing Pilot?
A Standing Pilot ignition system, which uses a push-button piezo ignitor to lite the pilot gas. In turn, the pilot flame generates a small millivolt current which controls the valve and lights the main burner gas. This allows the stove to operate without the need for electricity or a battery back-up system
