Warm Up This Winter
Whether its converting an old open hearth or installing a freestanding fireplace, beat the shopping frenzy and install an efficient and easy to use, closed combustion fireplace into your home now.
If you're looking to add an atmosphere of romance and nostalgia, then you will want to consider investing in a wood fireplace. From classic traditional fireplaces, conservative wood fireplaces to modern designer wood fireplaces, nothing compares to the warmth and aesthetic appeal of a wood fireplace.
A wood fire is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to heat a home. Today’s modern wood fireplaces are efficient and generate enough heat to warm a home. And wood is a sustainable energy source, unlike fossil fuels that actually increase your carbon footprint.
As the cost of electricity continues to spiral higher every year, wood fireplaces are becoming a popular heating option for many homes. It costs far less to purchase firewood for a wood fireplace than to heat your home with electrical heaters. Additionally, when the power goes out (for any reason), your home stays snug and warm when the winter winds blow outside.
GOOD TO KNOW: Always use seasoned (dried) wood in your fireplace. Wet or green wood does not burn well. Seasoned wood should be allowed to burn hot and fast to limit creosote production. Creosotes are a category of carbonaceous chemicals formed by the distillation of various tars and by pyrolysis of plant-derived material, such as wood or fossil fuel [wikipedia]
