    Question:

    I'm searching for some information on a unique stove my mother is looking for. This stove is manufactured in Michigan, it is a wood/gas burning stove, however, when you are not burning wood it then will kick in and start burning natural gas. Her explanation to me was: If you are burning wood and then go to bed, the fire goes out because you are not up to tend to it. Once the stove cools to a certain temperature, the gas takes over to warm the house, this is all from the same unit. I have been search for information for a while and have been unsuccessful. I am hoping for any information you may be able to give me. My mother is building her dream house and would like to purchase this stove for her home.



    Answer:

    There are furnaces and boilers (whole house heaters) that switch fuels as you describe, however I know of no freestanding stove or fireplace which does this.

    For a hot water multi-fuel boilers, see http://www.woodboilers.com/.

    For Hot air products, there are a couple of manufacturers, including a company called Yukon.
