Joseph Coupal - Thursday, November 14, 2013

We are in for a winter with temperatures that are expected to be lower than normal. If you are looking for a better, more economical way to heat your home then take advantage of the advice from the National Electric Companies. Electric companies are touting the advantages supplementing home heating systems with wood heat.  If you are interested in decreasing your home energy bills then take a look at wood burning fireplace inserts.

Wood burning fireplace inserts can help you  save quite a bit of money on heating your home. Fireplace inserts make your open, traditional hearth, and in fact your entire heating system, more efficient. Open fireplaces draw the heat from inside your home up your chimney. Additionally, wood inserts keep your home warmer and can heat rooms that are traditionally cooler. This stops your furnace from running continuously and enables you to stay warmer in rooms that have normally been hard to heat.

Dramatically decrease your heating bill this winter by installing a wood burning fireplace insert. In fact, you can even take your home off the grid altogether with wood heat. But there is another advantage too. Fireplace inserts create a cozy, warm and welcoming atmosphere in your home.

Are you done paying large, fluctuating heating bills? Are you tired of the increasing price of home heating oil? Wood burning fireplace inserts are a great way to cut back on utility bills, increase your home value and decrease your carbon footprint. For a beautiful addition to your home that is functional, beautiful, and practical, add a fireplace insert.

Wood burning fireplace inserts add warmth and ambiance to any room. Contact Fireplace Showcase for ideas on the best fireplace insert for your home.

Higher than Normal Heating Bills Expected, Fireplace Inserts Are a Better Way to Heat - Seekonk, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 10, 2013

Cold weather is on the way and this week the government forecast that most households will pay more for heat this winter. Many may pay near-record prices to keep warm. The primary reason that more than 90% of homes will incur higher heating expenses is because prices will be higher.

Homes using natural gas for heat will pay about 13% higher than a year ago, at about an average $11 per thousand cubic feet. Homes relying on electricity for heat will likely pay about 2% more for heat compared with last year. The government also cautions that if temperatures are about 10% below expectations, heating oil costs could rise around 9% from a year ago.

For better more efficient heat, many don’t want to replace their heating systems, but they don’t have to. Fireplace inserts make heating your home more attractive, more efficient and cost effective.  When used in open hearth fireplaces, fireplace inserts stop the warm air from leaving your home through the chimney. In fact, when fires are burned in open hearths, the warm air going up the chimney creates a vacuum or draft, which pulls the warm air from within your home up the chimney.

Pellet or wood burning  fireplace inserts produce more efficient heat. Actually, they burn fuel very efficiently and can be rated to heat entire homes or to heat rooms that have a hard time warming up. Fireplace inserts force heat back into your home and pellet and gas fireplace inserts can be set on a thermostat.
