One of the most frequently asked questions is how expensive is the wood stove to install. Many different factors will determine how expensive is the wood stove to install now. Let’s go over the various parts of determining the wood stove cost.
First, a honest and reliable chimney service company is key. Not every company is experienced in converting a fireplace into a wood stove or installing a wood stove from scratch. These units are heavy. An experienced chimney company has lifts and tools for taking stoves up stairs or other hard to reach areas.
Also, the manufacturer of the stove is critical. We only use around 4 suppliers. These companies make their stoves in the USA. They are decades old companies with quality materials and craftmanship. You can see the various vendors and stove by following our stove store page here.
So how expensive is the wood stove to install?
Wood stove cost for the unit only range from $400 up to $3,000. There is definitely a difference in quality for the price. Less expensive stoves use thinner metal that can warp and not withstand the high heat over time. Inside, the fire brick is very critical. This brick absorbs and keeps the heat inside. A cheaper brick will not hold up. It will chip and need replacing as soon as a year. Don’t cut corners on the price of the stove. View it as an investment.
These units are a work of art as well as a heating source. High gloss outside coatings and the overall design make them a center piece in your room. When you look over our stove store page, you will see various units that fit into your space in a beautiful fashion.
