Brick and Mortar Stores Vs. Online Retailers

When it comes to purchasing products for your indoor hearth or outside fireplace, it’s important to consult a chimney and fireplace expert first. Stores and showrooms are filled with products that were purchased online and then returned because they were somehow unsafe or incorrect. Yes, you can find great deals online, but your new product still needs a professional install with a certified expert. What do you do when your trusted professional advise you against using the product you bought? This would never happen if you had first gone to a brick and mortar store and worked with an expert when ordering.

Professional Advice from the Beginning


When you choose to work with a professional at a brick and mortar store, you get necessary professional advice from the beginning of the process. At Beach Stove and Fireplace, our professionals can help you figure out which fuel type is best for you. Pellet, wood, or gas—the decision will make a difference! Not only the fuel but also the type of product you choose will make a difference. A standard fireplace is great for zone heating but may lose a lot of heat in the process. Your Beach Stove and Fireplace salespeople are also certified professionals who know and understand these products more than some website or algorithm. When it’s time to make decisions about your home, add value by starting with the professionals.

Questions to Consider When Shopping


When you’re online, you can’t often get a straight answer. When you visit our showroom at 381-8 Old Riverhead Road, you can ask our employees any question you’d like. If you’re not sure what you should be asking, no worries! We will ask all the right questions to get you paired with the right product.

  • How big is your home?
  • Should your new product be a primary or secondary heat source?
  • Do you have more ready access to firewood, natural gas, or funds for pellets?
  • What is the style of your home?
  • How often do you plan to use your fire for heat?

These are just a few of the questions you may be asked when you come to our store. You will not get this attention from an online retailer. Your online retailer will not come into your home and take before and after pictures, pay attention to every detail, and make sure the fire appliance is exactly what you want and need for your home.

Check Out our In-Store Sales and Clearance


Many customers who purchase fire products online may go into a big purchase not even realizing how much money they’re wasting! When you shop with us, we can help you earn up to $2500 off a newly installed pellet system through a NY State NYSERDA program! We also have products in our showroom that are on clearance, but our intention is always value, not necessarily savings.

Don’t trust a search bar, trust the professionals who will search high and low to find the best product for you! Brick and mortar stores are the best option for you and finding a team who knows their way around brick and mortar is also a plus. When you choose Beach Stove and Fireplace, you don’t have to find a separate technician to help you install your online appliance. Your salesperson and your installer can be one and the same.

What is the Real Problem with Wood Smoke?

Fires produce smoke, right? Every fire will produce a little smoke when it is first lit. A little smoke pushing into the home while a fire is burning is normal. Wood smoke is natural. It only bothers people with asthma. This is all accurate in some ways, but there is more to it. At Beach Stove & Fireplace, we want to help you understand all the problems of wood smoke and why it is not good for you or your home.

The Type of Wood You Burn and Smoke

Your wood fireplace produces wood smoke naturally when you burn wood. It produces more or less smoke depending on the type of wood you burn. The amount of water or other debris on the wood and the efficiency of the chimney system all affect the wood you burn. It is okay to burn wood in your fireplace, but only the right wood, and when the system is working properly.

There is never a time when smoke should push into your living space. When that happens, the system isn’t working properly. Inhaling smoke can cause respiratory problems, dangerous allergic reactions, bothersome allergies, unwelcome odors, and even carbon monoxide poisoning. Over 50 percent of fire-related deaths occur because of smoke inhalation. While your fireplace should not produce enough smoke to result in death, it should not be putting any smoke into your home.

Causes of Smoky Fires

Improper Wood – The only thing that should be burned in a wood fireplace is properly seasoned firewood. This is wood that has been cut to length and stored to dry for 3-6 months. Wood that has more than 20 percent moisture content will burn incompletely. This results in a waste of wood to reach the desired temperature, more smoke and air pollution, more ash, creosote, and soot.
Damage or Debris – If your chimney system has damage that is obstructing or complicating airflow, the smoke will not rise up the flue as it should. The flue is designed to provide a smooth outlet for the exhaust to rise up the chimney and out. Cracks, gaps, and debris may slow or obstruct airflow altogether, resulting in a smoky fireplace.
Competing Drafts – The chimney depends on a draft to work properly. The heat from the fire helps the smoke and particulate pollution to rise up the flue, but the air that is drawn from the home must be replaced. If the house is too tight or if other large appliances are using air in a similar way, the chimney may not have the necessary draft to vent the fire. Try cracking a window or shutting off other appliances while the fire burns.
Flue Improperly Sized – The flue is at a specific length and diameter to best vent your fireplace. This is based on the capacity of your unit or the size of your firebox. If the flue liner has an improper installation or if the chimney is too tall or wide, the smoke will not rise completely out of the flue and will likely push into the house. You should hire a professional to assess it, as they can make necessary repairs or reline the flue.

There is never a time when your fire should push smoke into the home. When lighting a fire in a cold fireplace, you can avoid a smoky start by priming the flue. If you still experience smoke in your fireplace, it’s time to call a professional. You can reach a fire expert at Beach Stove and Fireplace by calling 631-998-0780 or stopping by.

What Does EPA-Certified Mean?

In years past, homeowners spend a lot of money on a fireplace unit and use it for years, despite new laws, advancements, and standards. The chimney and fireplace industry is ever-changing, always advancing in science and technology. This means that fireplace units that used to get the job done can now get the job done even better. All the top brands sell high-efficiency fireplaces and stoves, and we sell them at Beach Stove and Fireplace too.

EPA Certified

When you look at high-efficiency fireplaces, make sure you consider those which are EPA-certified. When you purchase an EPA-certified wood heat appliance, you may qualify for a tax credit. This certification means the unit and manufacturer has complied with certain standards and performance tests. EPA-certified appliances include wood and pellet stoves, fireplace inserts, hydronic heaters (outdoor wood boilers), and forced air furnaces.

An EPA-certified heat appliance can be purchased at many retail locations. Beach Stove and Fireplace sells the best products on the market and specializes in high efficiency, EPA-certified appliances. When a unit is EPA-certified, it will be indicated on the back of the appliance and a white hang tag at retail locations. If a stove is not certified, it is not possible to have it EPA-certified, as this must be done by the manufacturer.

Saving Money with EPA-Certified Stoves

When you choose an EPA-Certified stove, you can expect to use up to 1/3 less wood than a normal fireplace or stove. EPA-Certified stoves are highly efficient, as they use all the wood, burn more completely, and use most of the produced heat for the home. You save on firewood, hauling firewood, and household utilities from central heating systems. Not only will this save you money, but it will also do its part in saving the environment too. EPA-Certified units are environmentally friendly, as they produce fewer greenhouse gases and leave less of a “carbon footprint”.

Wood Stove Changeout Programs

When you exchange your old stove for a new EPA-Certified one, the old one will continue to be used, creating poor air quality elsewhere. For this reason, many organizations and companies will destroy older models instead of exchanging or buying them back. If you have an old wood-burning stove and would like to upgrade, it is best to think of it as an investment. The new unit will be costly, but the savings are worth it. Upgrading to a new unit will also bring value to your property while helping your family stay safe and warm.

For more information about EPA-Certified wood stoves, check out the EPA Frequently Asked Questions, or ask your local fireplace expert. At Beach Stove and Fireplace, you can speak with a fireplace expert about which EPA-Certified model is right for you. Visit our showroom to see our high-efficiency stoves in action. Call 631-998-0780 or stop by our Westhampton Beach location.

What is a Fireplace Insert?

There is a myriad of options for home furnaces and fires. At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we sell and install most of them. When it comes to fires, our customers choose gas, wood, and pellet appliances, and all of them are high efficiency and economical. We also offer inserts, which are growing in popularity and available in all three fuel types. Fireplace inserts allow homeowners the freedom to choose the model, style, efficiency, convenience, and location—and that’s just the beginning.

All About Inserts

An insert is a fireplace that is retro-fitted or inserted directly into an existing firebox. Some fireplace inserts such as direct vent inserts are installed in other areas in the home like a stove. Instead of a chimney or flue pipe, a direct vent unit vents through a wall and pulls air from the home. It pulls air through the same opening in the wall.

Direct vent inserts are gas units whereas other fireplace inserts burn gas, pellets, or wood. A customer that wants to upgrade from a wood to a gas fireplace may do so by installing a gas insert into their existing firebox. Likewise, a homeowner who wants to restore a neglected fireplace, but cannot afford to restore the chimney, can also choose a gas insert. With a gas insert in the existing firebox and a new flue piped up the existing chimney, homeowners can enjoy fire this winter with a higher level of efficiency and safety.

Professional Installation

When you choose to install a fireplace insert, it’s important to start with the professionals. Only a certified chimney sweep knows how to properly install an insert. Many homeowners attempt to purchase these units online, only realizing later that they aren’t sized properly. These units end up on showroom floors, and homeowners lose their money.

When you contact a certified chimney expert, the firebox will be measured exactly and the unit will be sized properly. Our team at Beach Stove and Fireplace will install your fireplace insert with safe clearance between the unit and the firebox walls. We can also properly connect the flue and the appliance to ensure the flue liner is properly sized and constructed with the appropriate materials. Our team is NFI certified, which means the manufacturers trust us with their brand.

Fireplace Inserts in Action

If you own a home in or around Westhampton Beach, NY, you can stop in and visit our showroom to see the fireplace inserts in action. Wood burning inserts are a favorite among our customers. They love the beautiful, dancing, yellow flame of wood fires, high efficiency, and heat output of them. For even more convenience and efficiency with consistent flames and an easier-to-light fire, we recommend pellet inserts. For the most efficient, environmentally friendly, and convenient option, we recommend gas inserts, which feature push-button lights, immediate extinguishment, and even remote controls.

Are you a homeowner in our service area and interested in an upgrade? At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we have the safest and most efficient appliances from the top brands. Call us at 631-998-0780 or stop by today!

Invest in Your Outdoor Space

Now is the perfect time to think about and invest in your outdoor space. Whether you like to host an occasional barbecue, relax alone in the evenings by a fire, or throw neighborhood block parties, we have everything you need to add value to your yard and outdoor space at Beach Stove and Fireplace.

Planning for Your New Space

Your outdoor space should be a flat area that doesn’t collect a lot of water during wet weathers. The shape of your outdoor space may depend on the space available, walls and barriers, and plant life. You don’t want to have low-hanging trees next to a fire pit or fireplace. If you need help determining what type of fire best suits your new space, we can help! Not only do we sell the top brands in the industry, but we also build custom fireplaces and gas fire pits. Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace, and we’ll bring warmth and vibrancy to your space with a brilliant fire appliance.

Fire Pits

Fire pits are a favorite among our customers for poolside decks, garden patios, and outdoor kitchens. We specialize in custom gas fire pits, but many of our customers find they like the natural look and feel of the wood fire. We also build wood fire pits and install beautiful clay chimeneas. You can choose stylish designs and big builds for your fire pit. You can also go with a standard pit or ring, which can be safely installed on a flat surface with a bed of gravel or sand.

Fireplaces

Growing in popularity among homeowners, contractors, and property managers are outdoor fireplaces. These fireplaces are often nestled into barrier walls, built in stylish and mantels, and designed to complement the landscape, seating, and space of your outdoor kitchen or patio.

Patio Heaters and More

If you don’t need a fireplace or have too little space for a fireplace or fire pit that offers enough heat, you can invest in a patio heater. Gas and electric patio heaters offer your family and guests warmth, even in cold seasons and allow you to use your outdoor space year-round. You can choose a built-in heater that is hidden from view, a wall heater that is inconspicuous, and even an upright gas heater that burns beautifully. If heat is not the issue, you can add light to walkways, pool decks, doorways, and more by installing gas lanterns and torches.

Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace

There’s a saying in the industry: fire goes with everything. When any of our fire products are carefully chosen, professionally installed, and properly maintained, the money you spend on your home will be an investment. When choosing fire appliances for your home or property, it’s important to hire the professionals. Our customers get the best service possible through our sister company, Guaranteed Chimney Service.

Direct Vent Vs. Vent-Free Fires

Are you shopping for a fireplace to bring your dream hearth home? Studies show that homeowners want fireplaces. Whether you have a house, trailer, or condo, you can still have the fireplace of your dreams. Some fireplaces are easier to install than others. However, if you want to get the best value and installation for your unit and home, you should call Beach Stove & Fireplace. Our team of experts can help you choose the best product from the industry’s best manufacturers for your need and space.

Vent-Free Appliances

Not all fires need ventilation. Gas units burn so cleanly that certain models do not need ventilation at all. These may not be as popular because the flame itself is not the natural yellow flame that many people desire, but they do have all the convenience of gas fires. Gas units are easy to light, usually with an button or a match-light. They also have precise temperature control, sometimes with the use of a remote! Gas units also extinguish immediately, cut down on accidental burns. Homeowners love the convenience of gas and the freedom to install vent-free units anywhere. They come in a wide range of sizes and styles. They are designed to look like a wood fire, with detailed ceramic logs. When you choose a vent-free fireplace, you can have it installed into an existing fireplace or have one built to match your home and personality. We’ve installed traditional and rustic, sleek and contemporary, and many other styles in between.

Direct-Vent Appliances

If the location allows, you may be able to install a direct-vent fireplace. Direct-vent fireplaces do require ventilation. They are closed units, which draw air from and vent to the outside of the home by way of a wall or ceiling. Using direct-vent technology, we are able to bring fire into homes around Suffolk County. When you choose direct-vent fireplaces, you can benefit in five specific ways:

  • Easy installation
  • Increased efficiency
  • Increased safety
  • Uses outside air only and doesn’t affect the inside air
  • Keeps the home warmer without the use of electricity

Not only will you experience a warm fire, but it is eco-friendly and highly efficient. You never have to open your direct-vent fireplace. The heat reaches your living space by circulating air around the firebox (never entering the firebox itself).

Call Beach Stove and Fireplace

These units are low-maintenance, but that does not mean they need zero maintenance. Even the closed units and vent-free units need professional service to keep working properly.

The experts at Beach are knowledgeable and experienced, non-commissioned, friendly sales professionals. We guide and help our customers to achieve both satisfaction and safety. We are NFI certified, so even the manufacturers trust us. We offer a one year warranty on our labor. When you trust your home and fireplace to us, you don’t have to second guess.

Benefits of An Ethanol Fireplace

Spring is here, and homeowners across the U.S. are finally planning their summer festivities. Memorial Day is right around the corner, and you may be scoping out a barbecue grill for the patio or new paint for the garage exterior.

Outdoor projects are a great way to spend those mild summer days, but you can also make a remarkable statement to your home by installing a fireplace indoor or outdoor. Adding an ethanol fireplace to your home offer many benefits, and you should consider adding one today.

Ethanol is Eco-Friendly & Easy to Install

As a renewable liquid fuel source, ethanol burns clean with no odor or pollutants. It is considered a “green” product. Many homeowners are happy to hear that ethanol is an environmentally-friendly fuel source.

When you choose an ethanol fireplace, you can work with our installation team too. These fireplaces do not need any ventilation, so you don’t have to install a chimney or flue, expensive “kit”, or anything else. It works great indoors or outdoors, and our professionals at Beach Stove and Fireplace can help you determine the best location.

Ethanol is Perfect for Small Spaces

While ethanol and gas fire units have been competing in recent years, there are several ways ethanol is better than gas. First, it is perfect for a small space. Gas was once the only option for fire appliances inside apartments and condos, but there are still spaces that are unsafe for a gas unit. Ethanol can be installed in small rooms of 20 square feet without affecting the oxygen in the room. Not only is it safe for breathable air, but ethanol fireplaces are also suited for small spaces due to small heat-output. This means you can use them during the summer and winter with no problem.

Ethanol is Stylish and Convenient

You can use your ethanol fireplace through all four seasons. Because it produces beautiful flames, and it won’t run you out of the house with high heat output. It is ignited with a remote control system or a match, and it is easily adjustable. The flames from an ethanol fireplace are more lively than with those of a gas fireplace or log set. Ethanol fireplaces are often sleek and contemporary, but you can choose whatever style that best suits your home and personality. Whether you’re choosing a new fireplace for inside or outside, we have an ethanol fireplace for you!

At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we encourage our customers to check out design ideas and talk to a professional before making their final decisions. We can help you choose the perfect unit for your space and money! Choose Beach Stove and Fireplace today, and we can help you choose and install a new ethanol fireplace. Call us at 631-998-0780.

Want To Convert To Gas? We Can Help

If you’re looking to make changes to your fireplace and chimney system, now is the time. Spring is a great time for home maintenance, new projects, and upgrades. Don’t set out on a DIY project when you can have the expertise and service of a professional by making a call! Beach Stove and Fireplace have all the knowledge and experience necessary to make your next project a success. If you’re looking to convert or upgrade your wood-burning fireplace, we can help. 

Converting to Gas

A great way to upgrade the look of an old fireplace and improve the efficiency of the system in one swoop is to convert your wood-burning fireplace to gas. It is easy and cost-effective when you hire a professional. 

–Gas burns clean. You don’t have to worry about nasty soot and creosote buildup because gas produces very little soot and no creosote at all. Gas is the cleanest burning fuel for household fires, and almost all the heat from the fuel is used for heating. 

–Gas is eco-friendly. Gas is a fossil fuel, but it burns so cleanly that it produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide than coal, 30 percent less than oil, and 15 percent less than wood. Gas appliances are some of the most efficient on the market, and most newer models are EPA-certified. 

–Gas is realistic and beautiful. Your new gas fireplace can look just like a wood burning fire, with realistic ceramic logs, dancing yellow flames, and ambient heat that can make any space cozy. Your gas fire can be as simple as logs placed in your existing firebox, or a new, beautiful unit retrofitted into space. Choose any style you’d like when converting to gas. 

–Gas is convenient and low maintenance. When you convert to gas, you’re exchanging your woodpile for a convenient on/off switch, precise temperature control, and even a remote control if you choose! Gas heat is easy, convenient, and requires less maintenance than wood heat. You will spend less money on routine maintenance and less time and money on repairs when you go with gas. 

Professional Installation/Conversion

Keep in mind that gas burns differently than wood and that you must have it professionally installed to avoid problems with venting and condensation. Only a professional can properly install your new gas unit properly. The flue must be sized properly to vent safely, and all connections should be checked by a professional before use. Our team at Beach Stove and Fireplace not only converts wood fireplaces to gas, but we check and guarantee our work. We are certified and trained by the manufacturers, a requirement of most product warranties.

Don’t put your family at risk by attempting to convert your own fireplace. Let us do the work, and you will have a new fireplace in time for the cold evenings this spring, and it will be ready for burn season this fall. 

Call 631-998-0780 or schedule online today.
