Which Corn Stove to Buy
- 1. Select a local corn stove dealer from the list on
2. Make a decision before cool weather. Due to the high cost of
foreign petroleum fuels, factory inventories of local corn stoves may
be completely depleted early in the season.
3. For heating multiple elevations consider the Model 7100
Amaizablaze. If preferred, it can be connected to the HVAC.
4. For fireplace applications, consider the fireplace insert,
Amaizablaze Model 4100. Plan to install one on each elevation.
5. Limited space may be heated with the Model 2100 Amaizablaze. It
will fit beneath the shelves in the room or below most windows in
single wide mobile homes.
The term corn furnace is usually applied to commercial corn stove
units housed in a small outside building or in an abandoned basement
that originally housed a coal furnace. An entire room was used to
store the coal for the furnace.
A corn stove for home heat should be located in the living space so
occupants can enjoy the beautiful corn flames and hot breeze. A corn
stove has the appearance of a fireplace even if the cornstove is
mounted on legs, a base, or a hearth. Store the corn fuel in a
stairwell closet for talking purposes.
