Custom Glass Fireplace Doors

When you are decorating for the holidays or cleaning the house to make room for guests this season, it’s the perfect time to make changes to your fireplace. If you’re tired of the drab look of your old masonry fireplace, or want to upgrade your old insert, you don’t have to buy a whole new system. Custom glass doors can be just the thing your fireplace is missing. Not only do glass doors offer a fireplace face-lift, but also have great benefits that will save you time and money!

Save Energy with Custom Glass Doors

Custom Glass Fireplace Doors - Westhampton Beach, NY - Beach Stove and FireplaceConditioned air and heated air is lost up the chimney year-round, costing homeowners hundreds of dollars each year in wasted utilities. Glass doors close tightly, preventing drafts that affect the home’s temperature. They also raise efficiency of the fireplace by twice, meaning less wood has to be burned to reach a desired temperature.

Upgrade Your Fireplace with Custom Glass Doors

One of the biggest complaints we see at Beach Stove and Fireplace are homeowners unhappy with unsightly louvers. That’s why we install custom glass doors that cover them, so you don’t have to see them. You can choose glass doors that complement your décor and personality and completely transform your old insert or fireplace at the same time.

Control Heat and Fire with Custom Glass Doors

If you don’t have a gas fireplace, you don’t have the convenience of temperature control or an easy on/off switch. When you have custom glass doors, though, you can control your fire by closing the doors and keeping the sparks, smoke, and heat inside. This is also a great way to decrease the heat quickly when your house is full and temps are rising. Glass doors still allow ambient heat into the room, however, so you can still benefit from your fire.

Keep Children and Pets Safe with Custom Glass Doors

When the fire is out, close your glass doors so that small animals don’t get into your fireplace. Use the doors to prevent children from getting too near or falling into the fire. Glass will still get hot, but doors will prevent falls into the fire, preventing severe burns and life-threatening injuries. Screens can get hot and become difficult to open and close. Glass doors are easier to open and close, with handles that don’t burn your hands, and will not fall over the way that screens and gates can.

Finally, glass fireplace doors will hide your mess. If your fire has been burning for a few days and you don’t want to smell the odors from your unlit fireplace, dispose of the unburned wood, or clean out the ash just yet, you can close the doors and no one will know! This is especially nice before you have visitors.

Learn more about your chimney system by asking the professionals. Beach Stove and Fireplace experts are standing by to provide services from installations to routine maintenance. We want all of our customers and neighbors to have a safe, warm, and happy holiday season. Call and see how we can help you this winter.

Celebrate the Holidays With a New Fireplace

 

There is never a bad time of year to enjoy a crackling fire and a beautiful hearth, but during the holidays is the best time to enjoy one! Homeowners enjoy a fireplace so much during the holidays that network television dedicates a channel just for them. You can enjoy the real thing this winter. Celebrate the holidays with a new fireplace.

Getting Started Celebrate With a New Fireplace Image - Westhampton Beach, NY - Beach Stove

Maybe you want to upgrade to a new and improved fireplace, or perhaps you don’t have a fireplace at all. That’s all right. At Beach Stove and Fireplace we sell and install inserts to fit inside an existing firebox and use an existing chimney, or we have fireplace options that can go anywhere and don’t need a vent or chimney. To choose the best option for your home and family you should consider the following:

  • Location
  • Space
  • Budget
  • Environment
  • Safety
  • Convenience

Yes, safety should be at the top of your list, but the location and space will determine what size fireplace you will purchase. Determine where you want your fireplace and what you can afford, and let Beach Stove and Fireplace set you up with a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly option that suits you.

Popular Fireplace Options

We install a lot of fireplaces each year, and the fall is no different. Homeowners want a new fireplace before the holidays, and we can help.

  1. Gas
    Choosing a gas fireplace, insert, stove, or log set means you also get a great deal of safety and convenience. Gas burns the cleanest of our fireplaces, leaving less pollution for the environment and burning less fuel. They’re great for zone heating and the fire itself looks real with realistic ceramic wood burning in the hearth. Gas appliances have a switch to turn on and off, and temperature controls, making them the most convenient and “low maintenance” option on the market.
  2. Wood
    Many homeowners still want wood for their fireplace. This is still a classic and beautiful option. Wood-burning fireplaces, stoves, and inserts are more efficient than ever. These products are still great options for people who have access to a wood supply, and those who don’t mind lighting their fireplace when they want a fire.
  3. Pellets
    A similar option to wood-burning is pellet stoves and inserts. Pellets are manufactured from wood byproducts, so they are eco-friendly and organic. The stoves and inserts are highly efficient, convenient, and easy to use. They also put out a lot of heat, so they are appropriate for whole-home heating, especially during a power outage.

Once you have an idea of the best fuel type for you, get a professional involved in the planning process. Attempting to measure, purchase, and install your own fireplace is dangerous. If you get the measurements incorrect for an insert, it won’t even fit into the firebox. Installing new appliances will also require an assessment of the flue lining system. Your friends at Beach Stove and Fireplace can do it all.

Are you ready to upgrade a tired fireplace or install a new fireplace addition to your home? Get started now and have it installed before the holidays.

Benefits of an Ethanol Fireplace

Homeowners love fireplaces! As times change, homes have become more contemporary and modern. Homeowners who are looking for a convenient alternative to the traditional wood fireplace can find some great options. One of the most popular options for a no mess, no fuss fire is the ethanol fireplace.

What is an Ethanol Fireplace? Ethanol Fireplace image - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & Fireplace

Also, called ethanol burners, an ethanol fireplace burns ethanol only. Ethanol is a renewable liquid fuel produced from agricultural by-products and burns cleanly, with no odor. Ethanol burns so cleanly, in fact, that it doesn’t produce any smoke, ash, soot, or particulate pollution. Because of its performance, it’s considered a “green” product, for those homeowners that have the environment in mind. There are many benefits to choosing Ethanol, and it’s not just good for the environment.

Ethanol Fireplaces are Versatile

Ethanol fireplaces can be installed nearly anywhere that you have wall or floor space and have many more benefits as well.

Flueless Fireplace

An ethanol fireplace requires no flue because of its clean burn. This is especially desirable when a chimney is not possible. To install a chimney, you first need space, and money to install one. Most fireplaces require a chimney to vent the smoke, hazardous gases, and particulate pollution out of the home. A flueless option like the ethanol fireplace offers the fire you want, with the space you need. They are particularly great for condos and apartment residences.

Authentic Flames

Ethanol burns with a naturally beautiful flame, while still creating a good amount of heat for zone heating and aesthetics. If you don’t have the option of using a chimney, you might look at alternatives like ventless gas fireplaces and electric fireplaces. They are great for zone heating but do not offer the aesthetics that a real fire does. You will not be disappointed in the flame of an ethanol fireplace.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

When you find and buy an ethanol fireplace, you will benefit from an easy installation. Some freestanding models don’t even require an installation, and still, others can be installed during one appointment. When you’re planning to redecorate or renovate, check in with Beach Stove & Fireplace first. A fireplace expert at our showroom can help you select the best ethanol fireplace for your home and family.

Costs Less Than Other Options

Ethanol fireplaces cost less to purchase and install than other options. They require less routine maintenance because of their clean burn and easy maintenance. When you burn ethanol you won’t need chimney sweeps, because there is no chimney. In fact, there is no professional maintenance required for ethanol fireplaces.

Year-Round Fireplace

Ethanol fireplaces are perfect for year-round use. You control the heat that comes from your ethanol fireplace, because however much ethanol you add is how long your fire will burn. You can have a fire in the cool weather to help heat a room, or you can have a small fire during the warm months.

If you’re like many homeowners, your holidays and your home can be made perfect with a fire. Choose an ethanol fireplace and you won’t be sorry! Check out models and designs at aFire USA.

National Fire Prevention Week October 8-14

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) dedicates a week in October each year to raising awareness about fires. House fires, apartment fires, hotel fires, dorm fires, camper and RV fires–they are all deadly. They only allow seconds (two minutes at the most) for a safe escape, and death and injury can most often be prevented with some planning.

National Fire Prevention Week Image - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceBeach Stove and Fireplace Helps Prevent Fires

At Beach Stove and Fireplace, it’s our priority year-round to protect our customers from chimney fires. We do this by selling and installing the best and safest products on the market, and by partnering with Guaranteed Chimney Service for repairs and maintenance. How? By raising awareness in our communities about the dangers of improper use of chimney systems and fire appliances. We do this by partnering with NFPA to promote National Fire Prevention Week.

There are too many deadly house fires each year. In fact, according to NFPA, there were 365,500 home fires in 2015, resulting in over 2,600 deaths and 11,000 injuries. These numbers have decreased substantially since the 1970’s, in large part due to regulations, community education, and swift fire and rescue services. Professionals across industries have made it a priority to bring down this number, and to prevent the loss of life and property. The chimney industry is no different.

Preventing Chimney Fires

The most proactive thing you can do to prevent a chimney fire in your home is to take care of it. A dirty, neglected chimney is the one that will ignite and cause a house fire.

  • Always hire a professional to install, assess, or repair components of your fireplace and chimney system.
  • Schedule chimney sweeps to clean away debris, soot, and creosote that can bring down chimney efficiency and ignite.
  • Schedule annual CSIA inspections to assess your chimney for safety and identify hazards.
  • Burn properly seasoned wood in your stove, insert, or fireplace. Never burn trash, clothes, or other items that may burn too hot and ignite the flue.
  • Practice fire safety and teach your children and family to do the same.
  • Install carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms in your home, making sure to check batteries monthly.
  • Make a fire escape plan with your family. Plan two ways out of every room if possible, and practice regularly with the entire family.
  • If you experience a flue fire, make sure you do not use your chimney system until it has been assessed for safety.

After a house fire, you may be stressed, grieving, and possibly injured. Your home may not be safe to return to. It is our hope that you never have to experience this, but preserving life is the goal. You can do all you can to prevent a chimney fire, or a house fire, but it can occur anyway. During National Fire Prevention Week, plan an escape so that death and injury can be prevented in the event of a fire. Check out many family resources at www.firepreventionweek.org!

We Offer A Wide Variety Of Fireplaces And Stoves To Get You Ready For Cool Temperatures

Fall is the time of year when homeowners think about fireplaces. As you begin to wrap holiday gifts and plan festivities, you think of a fireplace. How nice would it be to relax in some cozy socks in front of a crackling fireplace? We’ve got just what you need!

Wide Variety Of Fireplaces And Stoves Image - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireBeach Stove and Fireplace, Your One-Stop-Shop

For over twelve years, Beach Stove and Fireplace has installed, maintained, and repaired fireplaces and stoves for our customers on Long Island. When you’re ready to think about a fireplace, you should start with us! Come by our showroom and see what we have to offer. Speak with a fireplace and stove expert who can point you in the right direction. We’ll help you decide the size, style, and fuel that best suits your home and family.

Wood-Burning Hearth Products

If you have access to a wood supply, you may choose to use a wood burning fireplace. Burning wood in the city can be troublesome if you have to purchase wood, but it is possible. At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we can revitalize an old and neglected hearth and chimney with the addition of a wood burning insert. Safe, efficient, and stylish, inserts are a wonderful option! We also sell and install wood burning fireplaces and stoves that can be highly efficient and cost effective.

Gas-Fueled Hearth Products

The most popular hearth products at present time are gas appliances. This is because they are most the efficient, safe, and require the least upkeep. Installing a gas fireplace, stove, or insert is an easy option, especially if you already use gas for other appliances in your home. A gas flame has the same beauty as a wood flame, even with realistic ceramic logs to lay in the fire!

Like wood burning products, gas ones come in a variety of styles – from contemporary to rustic, and everything in between. Many come with a convenient on/off switch and temperature control. In addition, leave little mess, and have fewer emissions than wood. Gas products are our most popular, especially among new homeowners. This is because we can install a gas log set with no chimney whatsoever! Vent free log sets don’t require ventilation, so they are an option if your chimney isn’t sound, as is a gas stove.

Pellet Stoves and Inserts

Pellets are a manufactured wood product, made from wood waste. It’s a recycled product, so it’s a good option for those who are environmentally conscious. They are efficient, offer a beautiful flame, and have a high heat output. There are a variety of styles to choose from, and many allow for a federal biomass tax credit!

Beach Stove and Fireplace also sell electric heat appliances that have the look of real fire. They can be used for zone heating, and are quite popular. These products, as well as outdoor products, can be found in our gallery at your convenience.

You can have your new fireplace by fall! When you’re ready to discuss your dream fireplace, talk to an expert at Beach Stove and Fireplace. Call today at 631-998-0780.

Add a Fire Pit to Your Home This Fall

Fall Firepit Image - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplceWhether you spend a lot of time outdoors or you just like the aesthetics of a crackling fire, a fire pit may be a great option for you. If you start the process now, you can have yours installed before fall!

Your Outdoor Dream Space

Realtors have long known that homeowners want fires. Unfortunately, there isn’t always space or the funds to build or install a fireplace and chimney system indoors, but there is a way to have a fire this fall. When you have a custom fire pit designed and installed, your yard can be transformed into a dream space that you’ll never want to leave.

If you’re thinking of creating an outdoor space with a fire pit, you should first scout out the best area. Your fire pit will need a flat area where concrete can be poured and your fire will be stable. It should also be a safe distance from the house and other combustibles like shrubbery.

Start with Design and Fuel

When you have scouted the area that is best for your outdoor space, you can begin to get a visual of the area. You may choose a rustic design to match the forest behind your house, or you may choose a contemporary design that suits your pool area. Think about the size, shape, and style you’d like best before visiting the show room.

Next, you should consider what fuel best suits your needs. Natural gas is a popular option because it’s convenient, eco-friendly, and also produces less smoke to bother you while you lounge nearby. If you have access to your own wood source, a wood-burning fire pit may be the better option. Wood fire pits are far more basic, but can still be beautiful, can match your space exactly, and offer the nice campfire smell that so many love. If you choose wood, be sure to burn only properly seasoned wood so that you have less smoke, less pollution, and less ash to deal with.

Once you’ve settled on a design and fuel you’re comfortable with, a fire expert at our show room can walk you through the rest of the process! For gas fire pits, we will spec out the burner system for your design, and will even provide the specs to your mason or contractor. Beach Stove and Fireplace can complete this entire job, though! We have master masons on staff, and can take care of your entire project and have it ready for fall.

If you’re curious about what we offer at Beach Stove and Fireplace, check out our fire pits here or stop by our showroom at 381-8 Old Riverhead Rd.

Open Wood-Burning Fireplaces Vs. High Efficiency Fireplaces

There is just something about a fireplace that makes a house feel like a home. Holiday festivities are more cozy with a crackling fire. Fall evenings with a book and beverage are better with a fire. Many homeowners don’t even care what kind of fire they have. In fact, some even settle for a fire channel on the television! What kind of fireplace you have DOES make a difference, however. Each type have their own benefits, drawbacks, and features.

Fireplaces Vs. High Efficiency Fireplaces Image - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceThe Traditional Masonry Fireplace

The fireplace you’re most likely to see when you buy an older home is the open wood-burning fireplace. This fireplace, when built properly, will last with regular maintenance. They put out enough heat for your needs. However, they also have their own drawbacks that cause many homeowners to choose other options.

  • Heat Loss – The open wood-burning fireplace draws heated air from the room, and pulls it up the chimney. These old fireplaces can lose up to 75 percent of their heat, in fact.
  • More Fuel – Since these fireplaces lose so much of the heated air, you will have to burn more wood to reach the desired temperature, and to maintain it. This will diminish your wood supply quicker than you may like. Unfortunately, if you buy your seasoned firewood, it can cost you quite a bit during the course of one winter.
  • More Upkeep – Since the open wood-burning fireplace works less efficiently and requires more wood for heat, it will also require more routine maintenance. More creosote and soot will coat the flue walls and need to be cleaned away to prevent buildup and fire risk.

The High Efficiency Fireplace

Modern technology and industrial advancement and studies have come together to create an option for those who prefer wood fuel, but would like to choose a greener and safer option. High efficiency fireplaces operate as a wood stove, a completely closed unit that uses every bit of heat for the home and to vent gases up the chimney. Due to their design, they are more efficient. They do not waste heated air, and use up to 3 times less fuel than the traditional open fireplace. Unlike the open fireplace, these high efficiency options come in various styles, colors, and designs that best fit your home and personality.

Beach Stove and Fireplace sells and installs RSF High Efficiency Fireplaces and we have three in our show room! You can stop by and speak with a fireplace expert anytime during business hours. We can walk you through your options from start to finish.

Not sure if you want to convert completely to a high efficiency fireplace? We can install custom glass doors to your existing fireplace to raise efficiency. The best way to figure out what you want or need is to speak with the professionals who know the products, the benefits of each, and always puts safety and efficiency first. We care about our customers and the environment we all share. Drop into our showroom, or give us a call at 631-998-0780!

Thinking of a Pellet Stove? New York State Offers Incentives!

Pellet stoves are some of the most efficient stoves on the market. They are the most economic option for homeowners who have no access to natural gas. In addition, they are often included in renewable energy incentive programs.

Thinking of a Pellet Stove Image (1) - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceBenefits of Using Pellets

Pellet stoves are beautiful, economical, and convenient. They burn cleanly, resulting in less damage to the flue. Additionally, they need less extreme cleaning of soot and creosote, and less maintenance and repair. Pellet stoves feature a hopper. This feeds the flame according to a preset function so that you can leave it alone. Your fire remains lit, and heat is constant! Pellet stoves burn hotter and cleaner than wood heat. This makes the chimney work more efficiently by producing more heat. Also, this allows homeowners to use the pellet stove for full-home heating, without wasting excessive energy or raising fire risk. Pellets are manufactured from wood waste, so they are a recycled product. Fortunately, this means they are good for the environment – and not filled with harmful plastics or fillers. They are 100 percent safe, efficient, and green!

NYSERDA (The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority)

The NYSERDA currently offers incentives for households without access to natural gas. The two incentive options are determined by income:

  • $1,500 for the purchase of a new pellet stove with the recycling of an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox), in a primary residence.
  • Households with income less that 80% of county median may qualify for $2,000 for the purchase of a new pellet stove in a primary residence and an additional $500 with the recycling of an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox).

In addition, homeowners may also qualify for a low-interest loan to cover project costs!

To learn about household income guidelines and to start the qualification process, review the participation details. The first step is to select a participating contractor. Beach Stove and Fireplace is a participating contractor, and has been East Long Island’s #1 choice for full-service and high-quality chimney services for over 12 years.

Let Beach Stove and Fireplace help you benefit from the Renewable Heat NY Residential Pellet Stove Incentive Program.

We know which pellet stoves will make the cut, which ones will best benefit your family, and which ones are the best on the market. We only sell and install the best products from the best manufacturers, and we can help you select one directly off the NYSERDA list of EPA Certified Wood Stoves. To qualify for the incentive program, the stove you choose should have a particulate matter output of 2.0 grams per hour or less and a measured efficiency of 70% efficient or greater. This means that it has the least pollution, and works the best!

If you’re thinking about converting or upgrading to a pellet stove, Beach Stove and Fireplace can help you choose which product is best for you. Give us a call today, so that your stove can be installed by fall. Dial 631-998-0780 or visit our store in West Hampton Beach now!

Alternatives To Traditional Gas Log Sets

If you’re choosing gas for your fireplace, there are probably a dozen good reasons. They’re most efficient, come in many styles, are equipped with convenient ignitions and controls, and look like the real deal. Gas fireplaces offer all the benefits of a traditional wood fireplace, without the mess, the hassle, and waste!

Alternatives To Traditional Gas Log Sets Image 1 - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceGas Log Sets

In recent years, gas log sets have risen in popularity because of their versatility. Some sets are vent-free, so they can be installed in an existing fireplace while bypassing a chimney altogether. Others are vented and require a chimney. Sticking with gas log sets in the fireplace can be limiting, however beautiful and realistic they may be. There are many other options that utilize the convenience and versatility of gas appliances while going above and beyond.

Gas Burners

Gas burners can be installed both indoors and outdoors, though indoors often require ventilation. They are beautiful when lit and not, but especially lit because the burners are often combined with mirrors, glass, and other aesthetics. The burners are sometimes coupled with realistic logs, stones, or embers and utilize glass to keep the heat contained. The glass can be removed as well. Gas burners can be installed in a wall, island, coffee table, and more. With these products, the possibilities are endless and offer the contemporary appeal that many new constructions and renovations need.

Alternatives To Traditional Gas Log Sets Image 2 - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceBioethanol Fuel Fireplaces and Burners

Not all fuel is created equal, and bioethanol fuel burners are not equal to gas burners, though they look the same. Bioethanol fuel, or alcohol, burns so cleanly that there is no need to vent. This means these burners can be installed anywhere, indoors and outdoors. The system is simple: pour the fuel in, and light it! It will burn until the fuel runs out. There’s no hassle and no need to control the flame. There is very little heat output, so all you need to do is sit back and enjoy.

Gas Inserts

Another alternative to the gas log set is the insert. Retro-fitted into the existing fireplace, the insert can use the chimney, or not. A direct vent insert can actually be installed anywhere, as it uses a specific vent that goes directly outside, above, or behind the appliance. Gas inserts are less sleek and contemporary as a gas burner or gas table, but still not the traditional feel of log sets. They offer a variety of styles and options and are highly efficient and better for zone heating than gas burners.

When it’s time to remodel or build your new home, it’s best to plan ahead for the type of fireplace you want. A gas burner can fit into your design well, taking up the space of a wall, or enhancing a void in the design. An expert from Beach Stove and Fireplace can explain your options while you work through your design. As with any heat appliance, it’s important to involve a professional every step of the way. You may be able to pick up heat appliances at the home improvement store, but that doesn’t mean you should!
