Why Buy a High Efficiency Wood Stove

When it comes to wood stoves, many people picture a pioneer cabin, stove pipe chimney, and cast-iron stove top with a pot boiling. Today, the top brands in the industry have brought high-efficiency technology into wood stove models, and we can enjoy them right in our homes. The benefits of these units are endless, and they come in many styles, highly efficient, and environmentally friendly. 

Styles & Environmentally Friendly

Why Buy a High Efficiency Wood Stove - Westhampton Beach NY - Beach Stove & FireplaceHigh-efficiency stoves offer more options than ever. You can choose a rustic cast-iron model or a sleek contemporary one, and they are both efficient and safe. High-efficiency stoves keep your home safer, prevent unnecessary environmental pollution, require fewer chimney sweeps, and keep your home warmer.

High-efficiency wood stoves are just as effective as other stoves on the market today including pellet and gas stoves. They burn less fuel, waste less heat, and produce less particulate pollution than standard wood stoves. These wood stoves make you feel good about the money you spend and the wood you burn. The government even offers tax incentives for homeowners who choose to install high-efficiency wood stoves.

Readily Accessible Fuel

Compared to pellet stoves, having a high-efficiency wood stove means you can continue to burn your own supply of wood. Unlike gas stoves, you don’t have to have a gas hook-up or even involve a gas company to deliver or connect your fuel. Now your high-efficiency wood stove will burn your own supply of wood, and you can cut, haul, and store it right on your property until you need it.

However, high-efficiency wood stoves need properly seasoned firewood to work properly. Seasoned wood is dry and burns well. It’s easier to light, burns hotter, and works better with your high-efficiency stove as it burns more efficiently.

At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we offer the best high-efficiency fireplaces. Our RSF and Fireplace Xtrordinair high-efficiency fireplaces come in a variety of models.

Our technicians can help plan your new fire from start to finish, selecting the best product for your space, and installing it with code compliance along with safety in mind. Call us at 631-998-0780 to get started now!

Fire – Fire pits can be as basic as a campfire ring or fire pit that burns seasoned firewood. Many fire rings come in beautiful and intricate designs.

Can I Convert My Wood-Burning Fireplace to Gas Logs?

The short answer is YES! But the long answer is NO.

YOU cannot convert your wood-burning fireplace to gas logs. For homeowners to do a conversion like this on their own, it can be dangerous and a waste of money. Luckily, our professional staff can complete any work properly, safely, and within regulations.

Why Convert to Gas

Using a wood-burning appliance can be a pain. Cutting, stacking, and hauling properly seasoned firewood can be tiresome and messy, and many homeowners are ready to be done with firewood and ashes by the end of burn season. Gas is more economical. Gas units are more affordable, are cheaper, more efficient, and low maintenance. Of all the perks of gas, the biggest benefit is the convenience. They are easy to light and extinguish, have precise temperature control, and are safer than a wood fireplace. You can’t go wrong with gas. They also require significantly less maintenance than their wood counterparts. The soot, creosote, and ash that comes with a wood-burning fireplace are non-existent. Your gas log set produces a small amount of soot and water vapor. After installation, clean the flue and check the unit annually to make certain it’s safe and efficient for another season of use.

Why Hire a Professional

When you start your conversion with a fire and chimney professional, you won’t have to worry about choosing the wrong item, installing it incorrectly, or servicing it. We do it all at Beach Stove and Fireplace! At Beach Stove and Fireplace, we’ll fit you with the best appliance to fit your space and your needs, and then we’ll leave the installation up to the CSIA certified chimney sweeps at our “sister” company, Guaranteed Chimney Service. Together we make sure your new fireplace is exactly what you dreamed, or we won’t rest until you’re satisfied.

Is a Gas Log Set Right For You?

The answer is YES! Gas log sets can fit in any fireplace. They are beautiful, realistic, and produce enough warmth for ambiance or zone heating. Many homeowners even choose vent-free gas log sets when converting from a wood fireplace with a damaged chimney. It may be cheaper to close off your chimney completely and opt for a vent-free gas log set, safe for indoor use, warm, and beautiful. The only downside to vent-free log sets is the flame is the blue flame. Many find it to be off-putting and less realistic. However, manufacturers have done a great job of making the logs look realistic and flame dance as it would in a wood fire. If you want to convert to gas and your chimney is in good shape, you can choose a vented gas log set that rivals the beauty of a wood fire! Your chimney expert will reline the chimney or pipe it up so that it meets the capacity of your new appliance. Without this extra step, your new gas appliance may cause moisture problems in your home. Talk to a professional about your installation and scheduling your first service appointment so that you don’t forget when the time comes.

Start now and you can have your dream fireplace in time for fall. Call Beach Stove and Fireplace now at 631-998-0780 or visit our store at 381-8 Old Riverhead Road at your convenience!

The Benefits of an Ethanol Fireplace

Are you spending your summer thinking about beaches, barbecues, and yard work? Mid-July is when most homeowners begin to think about updates to the house because we spend so much time indoors during the hot periods of summer. If you’re unhappy with the look of your home, we have something for you at Beach Stove and Fireplace!

Ethanol Burners Compared to Others

Wood fireplaces require properly seasoned firewood to be stored or bought, cut, and hauled, then lit when you want a fire. Some homes may not be able to accommodate a wood fireplace. They require a chimney, space, and certain specifications to remain safe and within code regulations. Gas fireplaces also may not be appropriate for your space, depending on the size of the space and the size and type of the unit.

When you choose an ethanol burner, you have more freedom to choose a fireplace that fits your needs. They are easy to install, require no flue or chimney and can be installed both outdoors and indoors. Ethanol burners are less expensive than wood or gas installations, and cheaper to burn and maintain. In fact, ethanol burners maintenance free!

Despite the clean burn, ethanol burners offer a beautiful, lively, orange flame that will add to the ambiance of your home and become the focal point of any room or gathering. You won’t be run out of the house by the heat of an ethanol burner or fireplace. Their easily controlled and extinguished heat output makes them great for use year round.

Types of Installations and Fireplaces

Ethanol fireplaces are installed into walls, floors, hearths, and tables, and the versatility in design rivals all other fire products. With proper installation, these burners will also add to your property value. Homeowners, realtors, and business owners prefer fireplaces. They’re a great way to bring up your property value before a sale or refinance, and upgrade a space.

Buying Your Ethanol Fireplace

From time to time, we have ethanol burners on clearance at Beach Stove and Fireplace. Whether you buy from our clearance items or from a catalog, it’s important to purchase fire products from a licensed dealer and have them professionally installed.

Beach Stove and Fireplace installs ethanol burners, giving homeowners exactly the fireplace they dream of. We’ll have your fireplace ready by late summer or the fall if you start the installation process today!

Not sure about an ethanol fireplace? There are many benefits to consider, and models to explore. Call a fireplace expert today at 631-998-0780 to schedule an appointment.

Outdoor Living With Kitchens, Fireplaces, and Fire Pits

You want to optimize your outdoor living space before summer picks up. By starting now, you can choose a new kitchen upgrade, grill, fireplace, fire table, or fire pit. You can design and choose the best space for you just in time for summer!

Outdoor Kitchens

Your outdoor space can include a fabulous kitchen with countertops, grills, ovens, sinks, refrigerators, and more. If your space is large enough, you can have it all! Make sure you include the professionals in your plan so that the measurements, products, and construction fit together perfectly. What your family uses the space for, the size of groups that you may have, and what you might like to cook will all affect your plans. We can help! There are fireplace experts at Beach Stove and Fireplace who also specialize in outdoor kitchens.

Outdoor Fires

Depending on the size of space you might have, you may be able to choose a standard fire pit, an ornate fireplace, or a functional fire table. As you plan your space, you may see that one style works better than others. If you don’t have space for a table, you can choose a fire table that burns with beautiful and warm flames while also working as a table for dinners or drinks. Adversely, fire pits are smaller and can fit in a cramped space safely. Gas fire pits have convenient on/off features, temperature and flame adjustment, and cool quickly after shut-off. Wood fire pits are smaller, burn hotter, and are often the favorite for fall and winter. They are messy, require more work, are harder to light, and are more dangerous than their gas counterparts.

If your outdoor kitchen has a wall, you can install a gas fireplace that can add both style and warmth. We carry gas fireplaces that feature realistic ceramic logs, beautiful flames, and many even have glass that helps the fire produce ambient heat great for fall and winter.

We Have the Perfect Backyard Fire Table for Your Next Gathering!

Even though it is still spring, much of our service area is experiencing summer weather. If you’re ready to barbecue, host gatherings, and celebrate summer holidays in your backyard, we have the perfect fire table to complete your outdoor dream space.

Fire Table Versus Fire Pit

Just as it sounds, a fire table can be used as a table. In fact, it combines the two most central components of a gathering–the focal point of the fire and food and drink. Choosing to install a fire table in your outdoor space saves room and offers convenience that a separate table and fire pit doesn’t. Additionally, fire tables add a level of safety that isn’t present in standard fire pits. If you commonly host gatherings with small children, the good time may be hampered by stress. A fire table puts the fire out of reach of children, but allows seated children to enjoy the convenient reach of the fire for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs.

Fire Tables are Convenient

When you choose a gas fire table for your outdoor space, you also get unrivaled convenience and low maintenance. You don’t have to worry about lighting kindling and firewood, or bother with covering a fire pit for the weather. When you purchase your fire table, you will get a user guide that is easy to follow and a product that is easy to maintain and use. Gas fuel allows you to turn your fire on and off with the touch of a button while easily controlling the heat, light, and size of your fire.

Fire Tables are Beautiful

Fire tables add an ambiance to the yardscape that you cannot achieve with other products. You may choose to fit your fire into your furniture by installing a linear fire table, or you may make it your focal point as a coffee table combined with a fire pit. The fire portions of the tables are attractive in look whether the fire is burning or not, and the table portion of the fire table is beautiful, with decorative ceramic tile top, wood, glass, or more.

Start Now!

You can start planning your outdoor space now by calling Beach Stove and Fireplace. We offer the best and safest products on the market, and pride ourselves on beauty and durability. If you’d like to see a fire table in action, you can stop by our showroom at 381 Old Riverhead Rd #8 in Westhampton Beach, New York. Don’t wait another minute. You can have your new fire table before Memorial Day if you call today.
