Lopi wood stoves are produced by Travis Industries, North Americas largest privately owned company producing wood and pellet stoves, gas stoves and fireplace inserts.
Based out of Mukilteo, Washington and founded more than 30 years ago, the company is known for creating exceptional wood stoves using high quality materials that have been proven to last for many years.
If you're in the market for a new wood stove you'll soon realize there's a lot of different styles, options and manufactures to choose from.
Due to the vast selection, it can seem overwhelming at times and picking the "perfect" stove seems impossible.
One of the best ways to help narrow down your search is to start by researching stoves made by a reputable company who have a true passion for creating the best wood stoves possible, and Lopi is a great place to start.
With nearly 1.5 million stoves installed by reputable dealers in the last 3 decades, Lopi prides themselves in always looking for ways to improve their stoves and the technology within their products.
Although they are constantly working on new technology and designs, here are a couple of breakthroughs in wood stove technology that Travis Industries has created.
The Hybrid-Fyre uses clean burning technology which produces an unbelievably clean burn with over 80 percent efficiency when used in their Cape Cod stove.
Greenstart Igniter System
The Greenstart Igniter System is unique to Lopi wood stoves and allows you to start a fire inside your wood stove without using matches or paper. The ignition system uses electricity to heat air to 1400 degrees ferinheight which can light kindling in about 1 minute from a cold start.
The Greenstart System has a 15 minute run cycle and has literally made lighting a fire inside a wood stove as easy as a push of a button.
Travis Industries produces many different Lopi wood stove models but the following are some of their most popular and recent additions worth considering in your home.
Lopi 1250 Wood Stove
The 1250 is a steel constructed, economically priced wood stove that creates a lot of heat for your home at an affordable cost. Ideal for small to medium sized homes, the 1250 can heat up to 1,200 square feet and can burn for up to 8 hours on a single load of firewood. The 1.6 cubic foot firebox has a maximum log length of 18 inches and the stove weighs 270 pounds.
Unlike some of the larger and more expensive models, the 1250 does not come equipped with the rear damper that bypasses the heat recovery system. On the larger models, this rear damper when opened allows the smoke to travel straight up in the back of the stove which is great when lighting the stove because it prevents unwanted smoke from entering your home.
The stove uses Lopi's unique convection chamber to move cooler air from the bottom of the stove through the backside of the stove where the air is warmed and expelled out the top.
Overall for the price, this is a great little stove. Although the firebox is a little smaller than some of the other stoves which may require more frequent loading, it's a good valued stove.
Lopi 1750 Wood Stove
The 1750 is a steel constructed wood stove similar to the 1250 only larger. Made for medium to large homes the 1750 can heat up to 2,000 square feet and can burn up to 10 hours on a single load of firewood.

For the price, the 1750 is also a great stove if you're looking to heat a medium sized area. For larger homes, you may want to consider a larger stove than the 1750.
Lopi Endeavor Wood Stove
Since 1984 the Endeavor has been Lopi's best selling wood stove. Equipped with a rear bypass damper to reduce smoke coming out of the front doors during startups, the Endeavor is perfect for medium to large sized homes.
