How to Choose a Stove or Fireplace?

You have two choices to make that will determine your final options for selecting a stove or fireplace for your home or business.

  • 1) What Style? Free-Standing or Built-In
  • 2) What Fuel? Gas, Wood or Coal 

Below is a chart that will break down the options and benefits of each. Call 913-764-4600 or visit our showroom to answer any and all questions you may have!


B-Vent/Natural Vent – Natural vent fireplaces are the least efficient. They require a chimney, which allows household air to escape.

Direct Vent – If you are looking for an efficient, vented fireplace, direct vents are your best bet. These do not require a chimney or foundation. These sealed combustion units do not rob your house of heated air.  The only thing evident on the outside is a small box on the outside wall or roof. This technology pulls air from the outside to fuel the fire.

Vent-free/Vent-less – Vent-free units supply immediate warmth. These gas appliances are 99.5 percent efficient. They require no venting or flue system, yet do not emit an unsafe amount of carbon monoxide. Manufacturers do not recommend them for small rooms or bedrooms, but guarantee their safety in larger areas.

Electric (no venting) – Electric fireplaces require no venting, making them ideal for locations where gas or wood burning fireplaces would be difficult to install. You can choose a modern or traditional style, and run them with or without heat. Electric fireplaces can keep up to a large space comfortably warm.


Gas (natural or propane) – Gas fireplaces are economical, costing as little as pennies per hour to operate.

Wood – Though authentic wood burners are appealing to many, these units are not efficient. They generally only heat the room they are in. They take the conditioned air from other rooms to burn the wood.

Electric – Requires no fuel, simply plug them into a power outlet.
