They have ceramic logs that look vibrant and life-like. Wood fires even come with a space to store some firewood. Using special refractory panels and firebricks, we can install stoves even in tight spaces.
  • Inserts are retro-fitted directly into your firebox. They are a popular option for those who wants to avoid firebox rebuilds or chimney repair. An insert is a closed unit that burns efficiently and vents through a pipe up the chimney or an opening in the wall (direct vent insert). Direct vent inserts, like stoves, can be installed in any space or room where a vent can be installed.

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.
