We should all expect (and plan for) the upcoming Seekonk winter weather to be as intense and uncomfortably cold as ever before. We want all our friends and neighbors in Seekonk to assess the efficiency of their home’s heating and take prudent proactive measures. Proper insulation and weatherproofing are essential tools to keep cold air out. But homeowners just like you increasingly turn to wood stoves as a value investment in home comfort.

Contemporary wood-burning stoves are increasingly popular for a host of reasons that include:

  • They are environmental-friendly because you are using a sustainable energy source rather than using fossil fuels.
  • They reduce electrical or natural gas heating costs
  • They simplify regulation of indoor temperature
  • They are sleek and stylish.
  • They are efficient, clean-burning, safe, and user-friendly.

We want to share with you some of the more common (and important) things to consider when you are contemplating what gas fireplace to select for your new or existing home:

  1. Home Style - Choose a fireplace that best complements your home style. If you have a contemporary home design, the sleek-looking electric fireplace will perfectly match your modern home.
  2. Room Layout - Before adding a fireplace to a certain spot, take into account the purpose of the area. Make sure the functionality of the future fireplace matches both the BTU need for the area and fits well within the room’s space.
  3. Special Circumstances - Every household has unique needs and you need to consider all of these prior to deciding the fireplace you want to use. For instance, if you young children, opt for a fireplace design with safer glass that are not hot to touch. The same is true should you if you have special need children or seniors that require proactive safety measures.

Getting the right fireplace will improve the functionality and ambiance of your living space. Consulting fireplace experts like us here in Seekonk swill ensure you get the right unit. Contact The Fireplace Showcase, we can help you decide which fireplace is best for your home.

Remarkable Advantages of Using Pellet Stove Inserts

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 09, 2020

Like most mechanical devices, heating systems lose their efficiencies over time. Maintaining efficient heat sources is a must if you are to achieve true value in home heating environmental control. So, let’s take a look at increasing home heating efficiency via pellet stove inserts.

One of the single most valued home upgrades involves pellet stove inserts. This technology delivers high heat efficiency but with an operations management process that is simple and convenient. Regarding convenience, there is no comparison of pellet stoves to wood burning stoves. Just pour the pellets in the hopper and enjoy the heat without any other support action other than the occasional resupply of the hopper. I don’t think we need to linger on the comparative burden of stoking and constantly resupplying wood fires.

The cost of pellet stove inserts is comparatively less when compared to alternative fuels like gas, propane, and oil. Since pellet stove inserts are condensed and compact, they demand significantly less storage and internal floor space compared to wood stoves. They offer convenience in fuel storage which gives you easy access to your fuel heating.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you your options, pro, and cons for heating your Seekonk-area home. To find out more about pellet stove inserts, visit The Fireplace Showcase.
