New Fireplace Installation? Information below can help you choose.
Fireplaces usually always rank as a top three favorite amenity among new homebuyers. If you have a new gas, wood-burning, or pellet fireplace installed in your home, it will increase your home value and appeal. Gas fireplaces have been steadily rising in popularity, though wood fires are still number one. The convenience of a gas fireplace is impossible to beat, just as the ambiance of a wood fire is unsurpassed. For efficiency, you can do no better than a pellet fireplace. Between the unique way a pellet fireplace operates and the low moisture content of the highly compressed pellets, almost complete combustion is achieved. Pellet appliances have been categorized by the EPA as smokeless because of their incredible 90%-plus efficiency ratings.
The many styles of wood stoves available today would surprise you, if it’s been many years since you last shopped for one. Perhaps even more astonishing might be the level of efficiency wood stoves now deliver, largely thanks to tightening EPA laws. Wood stoves provide radiant heat, and they can serve as a reliable heat source for zone heating and during power outages.
Fireplace inserts provide a complete transformation of masonry fireplaces. With an insert, you can choose from many styles, to complement your décor. Most importantly, you will enjoy a fireplace with 75% efficiency rating or higher, as opposed to a measly 10% efficiency or less typical of open-hearth fires. Choose between a wood-burning, gas, or pellet fireplace insert.
