Tax Free Weekend and an In-Store Sale Make it the Perfect Time to Buy Wood Burning Stoves and Inserts

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 10, 2011

This weekend is a tax free weekend in Massachusetts, so now may be the best time visit Fireplace Showcase for our In-Store Only specials on wood burning stoves and fireplace inserts.

Many people ask us, “Are wood burning fireplace inserts more efficient than a traditional wood burning fireplace?”  If you have a wood fireplace and you want to save money and energy, a wood burning insert is a perfect solution.
Traditional fireplaces have very low efficiency ratings.  A fireplace insert is an easy and effective way to update the look of your home, but they are also very energy-efficient. They hold the heat inside the fireplace rather than let it escape up the chimney with the draft.

Massachusetts winters are almost synonymous with fires roaring in the living room. But these days, we want our fires to be more efficient and cost effective. Many of the wood burning stoves today have efficiency ratings higher than 80% so it is not difficult to see why wood stoves are so popular. With a modern EPA certified wood stove, a wood burning stove can be very efficient. With all the different styles along with efficiency, for many people a wood burning stove is not just a heating source but a focal point of the room.

So if you want to add beauty and functionality to your home, while making your home more efficient, visit us this weekend in Seekonk, MA for our Tax Free Weekend  In-Store only sale.
