Ring in? You could try ringing in the new year by clanging onto your wood stove with a soup ladle on the first Tuesday in January. It’s an ancient Norse custom. (Okay, so we just made that up.)

Then, there’s the more modern: “So I lit a fire, isn’t it good, Norwegian wood?” The Beatles were on to something.

Ring in The New Year with a New Wood Stove Image - Albany NY - Northeastern FIreplace & DesignAs for good ol’ American (not Norwegian) wood-fueled fires, how about the virtues of a wood stove? Northeastern Fireplace & Design can give you sage advice and wise counsel if you want to ring in the new year with a new wood stove.

The latest versions of wood stoves are more efficient than yesterday’s stoves.

Some estimates say they use 30% less wood to produce virtually the same amount of heat. Of course, it all depends on which new stove is being compared to which old stove.

Modern stoves combine function and aesthetics in innovative ways. One difference from the past is the materials that go into a wood-burning heating appliance. Today, you get more than cast iron or steel in a stove. A wood-burning stove may also feature elements made of glass, ceramic, brick, enamel, soapstone or chrome. And technological features give you maximum efficiency and user-friendliness. Whether we’re talking twin pilot-injector ports or preheated combustion or secondary air, the multitude of technical options is geared toward ultimate customer satisfaction. Browse our tremendous variety of wood-burning stoves.

Some people talk of pre-EPA and EPA stoves. This relates to the fact that today’s wood-burning stoves produce fewer particulate emissions and less smoke. They create less pollution. You can be reasonably confident that a wood-burning stove purchased today is a more environmentally friendly product than similar products bought years ago.

Today’s wood-burning stove is more apt to be part of the decor of your home, an investment that is both functional and decorative.
