WESTON - Americans are returning to natural-based products and that trend applies to how they heat their home, according to one new local business owner.
Tom Zulch, Weston, is the owner of Dr. Lee's Stove Shop, a division of Tom's Energy Shop, located at 13160 Mill St. The business offers indoor and outdoor heating stoves (wood, coal, corn/pellet and gas), add-on furnaces and fire place inserts.
At the storefront in Weston, 30 heating stoves are on display, plus catalog orders. Dr. Lee's carries many brands including Quadra-Fire, Heatilator, Fire Chief and Harman.
Zulch and his business partner, Ken Slaven, decided to open up a shop in Weston as other stove dealers are a good distance away. There are several other Dr. Lee's locations in Ohio.
Zulch said the stoves are good for heating a family room or add-on room. It can also be an alternative heating source for households paying thousands for propane, for example.
"They are so much more efficient that they used to be," said Zulch of heating stoves. He has 30 years experience in the energy industry.
He said there has been a big demand lately for wood stoves with all of the dead Ash trees.
The price range for the stoves is between $1,500 and $4,000.
"We have entry-level stoves all the way up to highly finished stoves," he said.
Customer service is a key for Dr. Lee's.
"We try to go out and visit every house to make sure they get the stove in the right location," he said. "We also work hard and make sure they get the right unit in their household."
Dr. Lee's Stove Shop is open Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m .to 1 p.m. Extended hours are planned for the fall. Appointments are available by calling 419-669-4300.
