Stove Ratings, A Repairman Reviews The Brands...

With our stove ratings, you can cut through all of the sales hype and find value. We have researched the manufacturers' data and combined it with our years of heating system service experience to produce our unique system of ratings. It truly is like taking a repairman with you while you shop! These ratings are for stand alone heating appliances that burn wood. We have given you our top pick followed by a complete list of manufacturers and their ratings.

Our top wood stove pick is PACIFIC. These units are made in Canada and are available in the U.S. as well. They offer a wide variety of styles, sizes and either steel or cast iron construction. The units use wood gasification technology for clean and efficient burning. They have a "Build-My-Stove" feature on their website where you can customize the units to suit your home. They also have a dealer locator by state/province and the units are backed by a very good warranty.
