Stove Stories: Navajo Dual Fuel Hybrid & Survival Hybrid Wood Stove

Navajo Dual-Fuel Hybrid Stove & Survival Hybrid Wood Stove A Story of Great Challenge & Reward

The story of Navajo & Survival Hybrid stoves had a fascinating start with the design and development of a clean burning, small, dual fuel stove for use on the Navajo Nation at the Four Corners of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado & Utah.

Making the “impossible”, possible!

Navajo Stove Installed in
Beta Testers Home
In 2016, the US EPA approached Woodstock Soapstone Co., to ask if we would be interested in designing a clean burning stove capable of burning both wood and coal. The design would be used on the Navajo Nation Reservation, as part of a consent decree with Arizona Public Service & Southern California Edison for violations to the clean air act.  The settlement had designated funds for a stove change-out and weatherization program near the Four Corners region. This is a region where indoor and outdoor air quality is often quite poor, and a significant number of Navajo people suffer from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases as a direct result.

The obvious hurdles, and what other manufacturers deemed impossible, was engineering a low cost stove that could burn both wood and sub-bitumious coal cleanly.  In fact, there were no EPA certified coal stoves in 2016, and a coal testing standard had never been developed,  these were a testament to the fact that it would be a challenging task.

Harmony and Balance

Our lives are filled with meaningful symbols.  Some are universally recognized and handed down through the generations. 
Harmony and Balance
Side Medallion

One of the most widely known symbols, known for harmony and balance is the Yin Yang.  According to yin yang philosophy, the universe and everything in it is both constant and cyclical.  In this infinite cycle, one force dominates and is mirrored and replaced by the opposing force causing a never-ending balance of energy.  

Our May Steal of the Month reflects the beauty of lyrical harmony and balance with Yin Yang, the symbol of harmony, Lu, the symbol of prosperity, and the Trinity, the symbol of balance.  These symbols will adorn your Woodstock Soapstone Ideal Steel Hybrid wood stove, giving your home grace while bringing you and your family warmth, harmony, prosperity, and balance.

Harmony and Balance Andirons

Efficiency, clean burning, long burn times, and radiant heat make the Ideal Steel the ideal choice for keeping your home and your family warm and harmonious inside while cold winter winds blow outside.
