What is a suspended wood stove?
The suspended wood stove is a heating appliance which does not have a pedestal that connects it to the ground. Indeed, it is hanging from the ceiling, suspended on its exhaust duct. The main advantage of this type of stoves is that their modern design is adaptable to every interior. Notably because they can be installed in different ways: against a wall, in an angle or in the middle of a room. They can also be pivoted so that the heat is directed towards a desired direction. Most models generally work with condensed wood pellets. The pellet tank guarantees autonomy, especially because the consumption can be programmed with day / night cycles for example.

What are the assets?
The suspended stove is a decorative element that completes the contemporary design of a room. It brings the friendliness that every home needs. Its installation does not require too much effort or the presence of a conventional air duct. However, the stove must be positioned correctly by a professional so that the installation guarantees a good distribution of heat in the room.
The suspended wood stove has a large glazing (partial or panoramic) which offers the possibility to watch the flames. The last big advantage is the lack of feet on the floor that hinder the cleaning of the room.
This type of stoves fit perfectly into every interior
Being supported entirely by the framing or ceiling tile, the fireplace and flue assembly shall be limited to a weight that does not overburden the support construction. When it comes to high ceilings, it is useful to provide a device to avoid pendular movements.
Indeed, the wood stove heats quickly the room in which it is installed. On the other hand, its ability to heat a whole house is rather negligible because the heat is difficult to distribute. So, we can conclude that it is a means of temporary or auxiliary heating.
The big disadvantage of hanging stoves is their overweight
More innovative than wood stoves placed on the ground, the suspended stove has a higher cost than the latter. It can vary widely depending on the type of fuel, the power, the options (programming, automatic temperature adjustment, several windows, stove rotation and others), branding, setting up etc. On the other hand, the sum can be reduced in case you take advantage of the tax aids of the State.
