A Heartland Wood-burning Cookstove helps your home warm during power outages and snow, and keeps your ability to cook meals. The Sweetheart is able to heat up to 1,500 square feet. So it doesn't matter what is going on outside, inside you can still relax with a cup of coffee or even enjoy a nice, hot bath (with optional water jacket).
Hot water is always available
The optional installed water jacket can heat a 40-gallon water tank in about an hour with the stove fully operational. Many owners have chosen to run their system on a thermosyphon, which eliminates the need for electricity. Because wood heat can be very dry, the water reservoir can help to provide ample humidity. Even to get the dishes done.
*Note: Refer to water jacket manual and have it installed by a professional.
Your grandmother was right when she said nothing bakes better than a pie cooked in a cookstove. The evenly heated food cooks to perfection because of the sides being heated evenly. You can warm your plates, thaw frozen foods, or even rise your dough in the warming closet.
Helps to Lighten your workload
The thought of owning a Heartland Wood-burning Cookstove feeling too intense? Think again. You can add fuel from the top or the front, and the oven is coated with a porcelain and has an ash pan that slides out for easy cleaning.
