How to Size Your Appliance

Before we begin to define the amount of heat a space may require, we need to keep in consideration the other factors, including house construction, the temperature desired and the duration of the fire. These factors may suggest a person to shop for a smaller or larger appliance and not base the decision from the stated square footage of the appliance. The sizing we utilize is intended for the Maine climate and for average requirements.

Small
Best for heating the general space the appliance is located in, for example many living rooms or studies with a range of 400-800 square feet.

Medium
Typically used for heating a large open space or a smaller home ranging from 800-1600 square feet. Burning over night is achievable depending on the model and conditions.

Large
We are into the workhorse category. These have features such as side or top loading, designed to be used 24/7 with an overnight burn time. Typically best used in spaces ranging from 1600-2400 square feet.

X-Large
Designed to be centrally located in a very large home. This is a very unique class. This is simply put X-Large square footage of 2400 plus.
