Why Homeowners Love Zero-clearance Wood Fireplaces
Here’s a short list of reasons so many homeowners love heating their homes with real wood.
Amazing Styles and Designs
Wood fireplaces today are designed in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, styles and finishes. You’ll find it easy to bring home the perfect model to match your heating requirements and aesthetic ideals.
Heating with a Real Wood Fireplace
Gas and electric fireplaces certainly will perform well for home heating, but for some people, only a real wood fire will do. Leaping flames, subtle aromas, crackling logs – these and other features bring a unique feeling of tradition and nostalgia to a hearth area.
Advanced Burn Technology
Open-style masonry fireplaces usually carry heat-efficiency ratings of just 20%, and often much lower. Modern zero-clearance wood fireplaces, on the other hand, have ratings of 75% or 80% and even higher. Advanced burn technology makes these appliances far more powerful than traditional fireplaces.
This technology also results in more complete burns of your wood fuel, which means you’ll get a lot more heat out of every stack of logs you ignite and less smoke during the burn time.
A Carbon-Neutral Fuel
Wood is considered a carbon-neutral fuel because the carbon it releases during a burn is the same in quantity as would have been released from the wood had it been allowed to decay in the forest. Yes – wood fires are eco-friendly!
Enhance Your New Wood Fireplace
Along with the beautiful fireplace itself, you can crank up the elegance of your hearth area with a lovely fireplace surround of brick, wood or stone. Add a stately mantel and a handsome selection of fireplace tools, and your hearth area is complete.
Wood Fireplace Installation
When installing a new wood fireplace, you won’t have to have a chimney built. These appliances come with a special steel vent pipe designed to vent your specific model of fireplace. Zero-clearance wood fireplaces are heavily insulated for safe operation, wherever they’re installed. But to add another important safety measure, make sure your new unit is installed by trained and certified fireplace installers.
The Fluesbrothers technicians are experts in the installation of all brands, sizes and styles of wood-burning fireplaces. When we perform your installation, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing it was done right by industry-leading professionals.
