The United States Stove Co. got its start from the merger of Perry Stove Works and Wetter Manufacturing. Perry Stove relocated from Albany, N.Y., to South Pittsburg, Tenn., in 1886. Following a fatal boiler explosion, Perry sold its business to St. Louis-based Wetter. At the time, both businesses manufactured heating stoves. The company was reorganized in 1926, at which point it took on the name United States Stove Company.
In 1937 the manufacturer contracted with Sears, Roebuck and Co. and for nearly 40 years sold the majority of its product through Sears. The company expanded from cooking ranges to fireplace production in the 1960s.
Today the company has manufacturing facilities in Tennessee, Alabama and Oregon.
United States Stove Co. produces wood/coal-burning furnaces, several of which are designed for use as a supplemental heat source that works with an existing furnace. The steel and cast iron furnaces are able to help heat homes up to 3,600 square feet. The company also offers a multi-fuel supplemental furnace that runs on pellets, corn and other alternative fuel sources.
The manufacturer also offers wood stoves and wood stove inserts. The stoves range from small, single-room cast iron heat systems to plate steel stoves capable of heating up to 3,000 square feet. Several stoves are designed with a traditional aesthetic – one includes a pullout to allow space for cooking while another mimics the design of an 1869 potbelly stove – while others offer a more modern aesthetic and spacious fire-viewing windows.
The company’s pellet stoves likewise range in heating capacity from 1,000 to 2,200 square feet. Options include auto ignition, electronic controls, a temperature control blower for circulating the heated air, multiple blower speed settings.
