Benefits of freestanding stoves

The 'Enviro' freestanding gas stove line is a prominent choice for those considering alternatives to inserts or zero-clearance fireplaces.

One of the key advantages of opting for a freestanding unit is its ease of installation. These units eliminate the need for elaborate surrounds, mantels, or framing. Simply place it in a corner and vent it through an exterior wall. The installation process can be creatively adapted to various settings.

Aesthetic appeal is paramount when selecting a freestanding stove. Whether you prefer a modern or traditional look, options abound. Some models offer multi-sided viewing glass, allowing for a customizable visual experience.

The Westport Freestanding stove

Starting with the Westport model, known for its economic value, this all-steel stove made in BC offers a large flame and variable heat output controlled by a remote. It's an aesthetically pleasing unit, capable of heating up to 1,700 sq ft and emitting 30,000 BTUs. Its versatility extends to venting options, either through the top or the wall, and includes a 100 CFM fan to distribute heat.

The Westley

Next, the Enviro Wesley stove presents a more traditional design with side glass viewing. This model provides a heat output of 29,000 BTUs and covers approximately 1,500 sq ft. It features adjustable flame size for ambiance or warmth and boasts a solid top for enhanced heat retention.

Enviro S20 model

Discussing sleek and modern designs, the Enviro S20 model offers a taller glass front, providing an elevated view of the fire. Its construction quality ensures efficient heat retention, making it ideal for smaller spaces (up to 1,100 sq ft) with a heat output of 20,000 BTUs. The flame size is adjustable via a remote, complementing its clean design.

Enviro S40 model

Lastly, the S40 model, with its unique curved glass front, stands out as a feature piece. With a heat output of 30,000 BTUs, it can warm up to 1,500 sq ft. The venting options are flexible, including a ceiling mount.

Flexibility in installation is a key advantage, offering the option to mount the unit directly to the ceiling for a streamlined look or to vent it out the back, catering to different architectural needs.
