Stoves ‘N Stuff is a family owned and operated company that has been providing top quality stoves and related services to El Dorado County since 1988. With more than 75 years of combined experience, the sales and service staff at Stove ‘N Stuff has the knowledge to handle any of your stove or fireplace needs.
“We sell zone-heating appliances — free-standing or built-in — and inserts into existing fireplaces,” said Doug Lindsay, sales manager at Stoves ‘N Stuff. “With all of these, we offer full-service installations and/or parts and information for those who want to do it themselves.”
Unlike other stove shops in the area, Stoves ‘N Stuff is proud to sell pellets and promote pellet stoves alongside their gas and wood stoves. Pellet stoves burn compressed wood chips by feeding them from a storage container, or “hopper,” into the burn area as needed, thus creating a constant flame that requires little to no physical adjustment.
“There are many benefits to pellet stoves, and we felt it was important to provide consumers with the best products available for them,” said Lindsay. “We are the only stove shop in El Dorado County that sells pellets. In addition, the moisture content in our pellets is well below the limit for the premium grade. In the premium grade, you can go up to 8 percent; ours is at 2 percent.”
Stoves ‘N Stuff also proudly offers parts for all manufacturers and service on gas appliances. They service all of their products through warranty and have an excellent referral service for any stoves they don’t service themselves. It’s all part of Stove’s ‘N Stuff’s philosophy of providing the best products and service possible to the community.
“We like to think of it as a service to the community,” said Lindsay. “We make our community clientele the most important thing about our business, and, in return, our clients do us a huge favor by referring us to their friends and neighbors. We really appreciate our customers for that reason.”
Stoves ‘N Stuff is also a very active supporter of the community. Whether it’s making a donation to the food bank or hospice or sponsoring the Boys and Girls Clubs, Bob Moore, the owner of Stoves ‘N Stuff, and Lindsay want to be involved.
“It’s our way of doing business,” said Lindsay. “We know it’s not just about length of time in the community; it’s also about getting involved. We feel it’s all been worth the effort.”
Think you don’t need to worry about heating now that summer is approaching? Think again! Stoves ‘N Stuff is now offering off-season money-saving pricing on pellets and other heating tools. Customers can purchase pellets now and pick up at their convenience at no extra charge.
