Soapstone masonry heaters by Greenstone combine the best in masonry heater design and engineering with the superior performance of the world’s best soapstone. We design, manufacture and install world-class thermal mass radiant, wood burning systems in homes and businesses across the United States. Our heaters have been featured in some of America’s most sustainably built, off-the-grid homes. When the US Fish and Wildlife Service needed a sustainable, clean, wood burning radiant heater for the Kenai Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center in Alaska, they turned to Greenstone and our Vitoria 7 soapstone masonry heater.
Masonry heaters are also known as a Russian fireplace, soapstone stove, heat-retaining fireplace, ceramic stove, tile stove, contra-flow stove, Finnish stove, Swedish stove or kachelofen. Now these are not all the same device but do share the central design feature of thermal mass heat capturing, radiant warmth. For too many years, Americans have allowed the majority of the heat produced by their stoves and fireplaces to escape up the chimney. Today it is our mission to stop the waste and clean the air, and we are proud to have introduced hundreds of families across the United States to a better wood heat.
