Are you looking for a way to add some supplementary heat to your home this fall and winter? Do you want to be able to heat your home “off the grid”? Are you looking to add to your home’s ambiance? If you answered yes to any one of these questions, we here at Northeastern Fireplace and Design can help you with what you need. We offer a wide variety of gas, wood and pellet stoves. However, not all of our appliances burn the same type of fuel and, depending on your preferences and your access to fuel, one stove may be a better option for you than another. At Northeastern Fireplace and Design, we want to make sure we install a stove that best fits your lifestyle needs. That’s why we want to help you determine which type of fuel is the best choice for you.
Gas stoves burn either natural gas or propane. Some people prefer gas to wood as a fuel because you don’t need to chop, season, and haul wood into your home to keep your fire going. This is especially handy if you do not have room to store wood. Gas stoves are also quite easy to operate and usually just require flipping a switch to turn then on. Another positive is that gas burns very clean, meaning you don’t have to clean ashes out of your stove after using it and there will be less creosote build up in your chimney. If you prefer a low maintenance option, a gas stove could be a great fit.
Wood stoves create an ambiance that is hard to top. If you desire the dancing flames, soft crackling, and earthy aroma associated with burning wood, a wood stove is a good fit for you. Another reason people like wood is because it can be a cheap fuel source that is readily available in most areas. Wood stoves also don’t require being hooked up to a fuel source, so if you want to be able to use it off the grid, you can. If you’re looking for a stove that produces a lot of heat, and creates a wonderful ambiance, and can be used at any time, a wood stove is a great option for you.
Pellet stoves burn tiny pellets composed of compressed wood shavings.This can be convenient because you can buy the pellets and store it where ever you want. Pellet burning stoves are excellent heat producers and very efficient.
Safety is always a top priority when buying and installing a new stove. None of these types of stoves are any danger to you if you have it maintained and inspected annually by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney technician. At Northeastern Fireplace and Design, we require that all of our chimney technicians are CSIA certified. A CSIA certification guarantees that our technicians have been trained to install, maintain, and clean your stove in a way that is safe for your home.
