Pellet Stoves and Inserts Can Heat Your Home All Winter Long

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 16, 2012

Mid-August is not too soon to think about heating your home this coming winter.

With recent attention to the importance of local food production, we should consider ways to meet our heating needs using local wood energy.

Pellet stoves are freestanding and a pellet stove inserts fit into an existing fireplace. Both pellet stoves and inserts are an efficient and economical way to heat your home and make your existing fireplace much more efficient. They also allow you to support local wood energy.

Pellet stoves and pellet stove inserts offer a traditional and charming ambiance to your home while keeping it warmer for less. Stoves and inserts are conventional and efficient pellet burners. They are available in a variety of sizes and style and are easily added to most rooms.

Consistent, efficient, and responsible heat is what you get from pellet stoves and inserts.

Pellet stoves and inserts have been around for many years but have become extremely popular in New England in the last decade. Pour a bag of pellets into the stove and the pellets slowly move down an auger into a burn pot where they ignite.

Pellets are usually sold by the ton and you generally need 2-3 tons to heat an average sized home for the winter. Can you image spending around?

Homeowners with a Stove Or Insert Used Very Little Heat This Winter

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 16, 2012

With the mild winter we have had in Massachusetts, many feel like Spring is right around the corner. But, even so, there are still plenty of reasons to buy a stove or fireplace insert.  Temperatures were lower this winter, but you still need to heat your home. Have you noticed, you probably have not used much less heat despite the fact that we have had very little snow.

However, those who purchased pellet and wood burning fireplaces, stoves or inserts in the last few years didn’t use their heat at all, or used it very little. It may be warmer outside, but your house still needs heat. The newer stoves and inserts are so energy efficient, that many of our clients didn’t even turn on their heat this winter; the fire was enough. They saved thousands of dollars on their heating bills.

It may have been a mild winter, but in Massachusetts we know we are not going to get two of these winters in a row. Contact Fireplace Showcase for information on the right stove or insert for your home.

Fireplace Inserts Are a Perfect Option for Homeowners

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 19, 2011

Keep your home warm when it is cold outside.

In many houses, the problem is your traditional open-masonry fireplaces. They are not very efficient. While they burn, open fireplaces can send as much as 300 cubic feet of heated indoor air to the outside. That’s 18,000 cubic feet of heated air lost per hour.

As the warm air leaves, cold air from windows, doors and other areas is drawn to the fireplace. This cools the house and forces the furnace to work harder to heat your entire home.

Fortunately, you can enjoy a fire, and your fireplace without high heating bills and a drafty house.

An Upgrade
Fireplace inserts fit directly into the opening of existing masonry-built fireplaces and offer efficient heating, style and money-savings. Fireplace inserts come in numerous designs and fuel types.

When evaluating gas fireplace inserts, look at Direct Vent technology. Gas inserts have sealed fireboxes and venting that sends 100% of exhaust outside for clean, safe indoor air quality.

One wood burning fireplace inserts blend clean, eco-friendly heating with beautiful styling. A robust BTU heating capacity can heat up to 2000 square feet and burn for 8, 10 or 12 hours, depending on the insert you buy. Best of all, they heat your home during power outages.

Homeowners are seeking more and more ways to increase their home value. Inserts can lower heating costs and revive interior designs.

Many wood burning fireplace inserts are EPA certified. These appliances save money and meet stringent environmental standards. Pellet stove inserts are also known for extremely clean and efficient operation.
