What to Consider When Purchasing Your Gas Heating Stove

Even if you’ve done your research about your future gas heating stove, you may still have a few questions. Here are a few of the most common questions or concerns that we hear and our professional answers.

Should I Get a Freestanding Gas Stove or a Gas Fireplace Insert?

There are two main deciding factors when it comes to what you want out of a gas heating stove—location and how much space you want to heat. But there is typically a lot of confusion when it comes to what exactly it is you’re looking for.

For example, our gas stoves are always freestanding, but many people call them inserts or “gas fireplace inserts.” Freestanding gas stoves can be placed virtually anywhere in your home. With various styles and sizes, this type of stove is optimal for those wanting to heat their entire home with one unit.

On the other hand, gas fireplace inserts cannot fit into a wall where a fireplace typically goes (that’s a zero-clearance fireplace), but instead fits into an existing masonry fireplace. Gas fireplace inserts can heat your house just as well as a freestanding stove, and they can add a great design element to any home. Make sure you talk to one of our professionals first to see which option is best for you.

What’s the Right Size Gas Heating Stove for My Home?

Just like the previous question, finding the right size gas stove for you depends on what you want for your home. Each of the gas stoves that we offer at LanChester has a different heat output (BTU) that will help us decide what size may be right for your home. Make sure you have the approximate measurements of the room or area you want to heat to help your showroom visit go a bit more smoothly.

Which is Better: Propane or Natural Gas?

As we mentioned before, a gas heating stove or insert can be placed virtually anywhere in your home, but that may change depending on what utilities are available to you.

If you already have a natural gas line that comes to your home, this fuel type would be the better option. For one, if your house doesn’t already have a gas line, it’s going to be expensive to install one—or impossible in some areas. But if natural gas isn’t an option, your wallet will thank you for using propane.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“We recently had a sunroom addition put on our house. The gas stove that we purchased from LanChester Gas changed it from a three season to a four season room. We love the way it looks and we are thrilled with how efficient it it. Not only does it make the sunroom very comfortable, it also warms the adjoining family room and kitchen area, allowing us to turn the furnace off for a good part of the day. Thank you for all your help in selecting the right stove for our needs.”
