We live in an age of rapid technological advance. And even though some aspects of fireplace design may always remain the same — something burns; something yields heat; exhaust goes up the chimney — innovation in fireplace design brings efficiency and savings. That’s why it simply makes sense to visit Northeastern Fireplace & Design’s showroom to see for yourself the improvements in our industry.
As with phones and computers, fireplace improvements benefit consumers. When engineers and scientists use new materials or new technology in a fireplace, homeowners reap benefits in flexibility, lower utility bills, and common-sense convenience. Frequently, the environment also benefits as appliances burn more cleanly and emissions are reduced.
What do we mean by “update” your home’s fireplace? Although we might mean something aesthetic (an accessory such as a new mantel, we’re thinking more functionally. Sure, a new fireplace grate or hood is functional, but let’s think more boldly. How about improved fireplace performance? There are several approaches to achieving improved fireplace heat efficiency while maintaining or enhancing fireplace beauty.
For one thing, perhaps you want to change your fuel source. Updating may mean transitioning from wood to another source of heat. Northeastern Fireplace & Design offers a bountiful selection of high-efficiency, clean-burning, EPA-approved fireplaces from leading manufacturers.
One obvious option regarding a change of fuel source is: go electric. Electric fireplaces are ideal for many homeowners. Electric units yield a good heat output, they can go virtually anywhere in your home, and they don’t give off emissions from combustion. You can’t beat them for convenience. You don’t have to worry about loading fuel or starting and maintaining a fire.
Another convenient and reliable fireplace upgrade is a gas/propane fireplace. As with electric fireplaces, gas or propane fireplaces offer ease of use. Forget about stacking wood; don’t worry about ash cleanup. And ease your mind as to whether a wood fire has burned out or if it needs tending. Plus, you can control the heat output and flame. Convenience rules!
Even if you want to continue using wood in your fireplace, be aware that all sorts of improvements make for a better experience for your family and for the environment. Today’s technologically advanced wood-burning fireplaces are far superior to those of yesteryear — in efficiency, heat output, and eco-friendliness.
You owe it to yourself to take the next step. Step into our showroom and learn about what an upgrade can mean for you. Our trained professionals are good at scoping out our customer’s personal needs, and they can tell you how which fireplace upgrade is right for you — and how it will translate into long-term savings for you.
Another alternative is a fireplace insert. By adding an insert or other technological improvement, you can build on the beauty and function you already enjoy in your home.
