Wood Stoves and Fireplace Inserts for Dependable, Beautiful Heat

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 14, 2013

How many homeowners lost power this winter? How did they heat their homes while they waited for the power to get turned back on? Those homeowners who heated with wood had no worries about warmth. Wood stoves and wood burning fireplace inserts allow you to stay warm even without power. It may be March, but this is a great time to invest in a wood stove or fireplace insert if you haven’t already.

When you see snow and wind outside, it makes the idea of heating with wood sound all that much more warm and inviting. It is very comforting when a storm blows through to know that regardless of the weather, you and your family will be warm. When winter brings power outages, a wood stove allows you to cook and stay warm.

Today’s wood stoves and inserts are certified, which means they use less wood than older stoves, they burn cleaner, and they create more heat. So buying a wood stove now could possibly be the best time to buy one. As home heating fuel prices rise, home owners are re-discovering the beauty of wood stoves as a cheaper option and as a design feature for their home. Today’s wood stoves and inserts have come a long way.
The fire box in wood stoves is designed to burn wood efficiently. This gives you more heat from each piece of wood, and the heat is still cleaner and hotter than older stoves. So when you heat your home with a wood burning stove or fireplace insert, there are many benefits: Lower heating bills, guaranteed heat when the power goes out, and best of all, beauty and ambiance. Once installed, a wood burning stove can give you a lifetime of trouble-free heat.

There's nothing like wood heat to sooth the soul and warm the body! For more information on wood burning stoves and inserts, contact The Fireplace Showcase.

Heating with Wood Provides Comfort in Many Ways

Heating with wood has come a long way since the time of the old wood stove.

The new wood burning stoves are incredibly efficient and can be equipped with fans and thermostats. You burn much less wood and have some control over the temperature settings. And the money you can save on home heating can be quite substantial. Instead of spending $1000’s p a year for oil a wood burning fireplace insert can save half that over the course of one winter by burning wood.  

Reduced heating costs are a big factor in the decision for many homeowners. Using wood stoves and inserts saves money, but there are other factors too. Homeowners can save money, increase home value, add ambiance, do something good for the environment and support local businesses and jobs.

Winter is at our doorstep. There is comfort by heating with wood. Knowing that whatever the weather decides to throw at us, there will still be heat, and there are few worries about running out of fuel or running out of heat when the power goes out.

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.

Wood Stoves are Worth the Money

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 02, 2011

The weather has been unseasonably warm, but the cold weather is right around the corner. Do not be caught off guard. Wood burning stoves are an excellent source of heat, and an excellent addition to your home.

Gas and oil prices are expected to be the highest in history this year. A wood burning stove can seriously reduce your home heating bills while adding a comforting and soothing heat to your home.

If you have a wood burning stove that was built before 1989 or so, buying a new one is worth the money.

Newer wood stoves are EPA-certified and are more efficient than those that were made prior to 1989.

EPA-certified wood stoves have to meet specific limits for particulate emissions. On average, this amounts to at least 50% less pollution, depending on how old or inefficient your particular wood stove is. A more efficient wood stove gives you more heat, and burns wood better as well, this helps pay the cost difference.
