The design and installation freedom offered by today’s stoves are endless. G&B Energy and Appalachian Energy offer sales, service and installation of gas, wood and pellet burning stoves.
Stoves are a quick and budget friendly way to add warmth, character and ambiance to any room in your home. Gas stoves feature realistic dancing yellow flames and glowing embers. Stoves can be installed in your living room, basement, sunroom, or even a hard to heat bedroom* and can be used as a backup heat source in the event of power outages! Stoves can also be used as a supplemental heat source allowing homeowners the cost savings of zone heating their home. Zone Heating is done by heating only the rooms you use. For example when you are relaxing in your living room, the new stove would be used to warm the living room. The home’s main thermostat could then be turned down so the central heating system runs less often. By zone heating the areas of the home that are most used, many customers with central heating systems conserve energy that is typically wasted on heating the entire home.
Gas Stove types include direct vent, top vent (b-vent) or vent free models. Gas stoves can be vented into an existing chimney, through an exterior wall or through the roof of a home. Unvented or Vent Free models do not require a vent. Gas stoves require very little maintenance other than annual service. Gas stoves can be operated by a hand held remote control (thermostat version available), a user-friendly wall switch or wall-mounted thermostat. Homeowners with a thermostat controlled gas stove enjoy the comfort levels provided by precise temperature control.

Wood stoves include top and rear vent models and can be vented into an existing chimney or through the roof of a home. All of the wood burning stoves and inserts sold by G&B Energy and Appalachian Energy are EPA certified.

Pellet stoves burn compressed wood pellets made from recycled saw dust. In many cases pellet stoves feature an autostart option and can fuel themselves. Once the hopper is loaded with pellets and the stove is burning, the automatic feed system can feed pellets into the firepot or combustion chamber to maintain the comfort level desired in the home. Pellet stoves require the most maintenance of any of the stove options on the market today. Click here to view a pellet stove fact sheet provided by the Hearth, Patio and Barbeque Association.
