Exterior Dimensions

The Overall Exterior Dimensions are displayed for the pedestal and leg options for each model. These measurements help plan the installation of a freestanding wood stove to determine where you place it in your living space. The height will help determine how much stove pipe is required inside the room. Measured in inches.

Recommended Heating Area

The Recommended Heating Area is a suggestion based on the heating capacity of each stove. This suggestion provides a good estimate on the space each wood burning stove will heat. This metric will vary from home to home and is more or less an estimate. Measured in square feet.

Firebox Volume

The Firebox Volume indicates the space available inside the firebox where the wood will be loaded. Typically, the larger the firebox = the greater the heating capacity. Measured in cubic feet.

Maximum Burn Time

The Maximum Burn Time is the amount of time a load of firewood starts to burn all the way to the time when the embers continue to glow. This metric will vary based on location in the home, quality of wood, chimney draft, heat loss factors, climate, and other variables. Measured in hours.

Maximum Log Length

The Maximum Log Length is the largest length of firewood that would fit inside the unit. This is usually measured along the width of the firebox. This will give you a good idea of what length to cut your firewood to. Measured in inches.

Glass Viewing Area

The Glass Viewing Area is the measurement of the length and width that you will view the fire through the glass in the door. Each wood stove has a different door size, which in turn, provides a variety of glass sizes. Measured in inches.


The Blower is used to help distribute the heat from the freestanding wood stove into the living space. Each wood stove we offer indicates if the blower is included or is an accessory option. The difference between the blowers is the volume of air moved by the fan. Measured in CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute).
