Fireplace Facelift: Transform Your Wood-Burning Fireplace

While you are stuck in your house for the winter, you may notice things you hadn’t before. Making mental notes of things to fix or replace during your annual spring cleaning? If so, you might linger on the old bass door or unsightly louvers on your factory built fireplace. Your wood-burning fireplace doesn’t have to be replaced. In addition, it doesn’t always have to look the same! You can update it quickly and easily with a ReFace Door.

The Stoll ReFace™

Stoll has perfected these custom metal and glass doors to renovate the look of the factory-built fireplace completely in one easy-to-install step. They are custom made for your unique fireplace. They’re engineered to cover your manufactured fireplace, sized for easy access to the fire, and to cover those ugly louvers completely. You can even custom design your own Stoll ReFace™ door from a wide variety of styles, colors, finishes, and options.

Easy Installation

Stoll’s neodymium “rare earth” magnetic mounting system allows the frame to attach firmly. Once the frame is measured and custom-designed it is easy to install in one step. No tools required! If you’re still not convinced, check out this installation video.

Added Benefits of a Stoll ReFace™ Installation

It’s common to see drafts that make using your manufactured fireplace bothersome. Not only do the ReFace doors eliminate the draft completely, but reduce up to 90 percent of the heat lost up the chimney. This is radically better than the efficiency of a traditional open fireplace. Plus, improves the efficiency of your own wood-burning pre-fab fireplace. When you improve efficiency you save money in fuel, repairs, and maintenance.

A more efficient fireplace means wood burns more completely. Also, less soot and creosote is left on

the chimney walls. Additionally, you’ll need less maintenance appointments. You’re also less likely to require repairs following your annual inspections.

All About Pellet Stoves

As fuel costs rise and fall, many homeowners are uncertain about the best ways to heat their homes. With so many options including natural gas, electric and traditional wood-burning appliances like fireplaces and stoves it is no wonder consumers are overwhelmed by their choices. Couple the variety of choices with the growing desire of environmentally friendly choices and it is no surprise that pellet stoves are becoming more popular.

How Do Pellet Stoves Work?

Rather than burning wood, pellet stoves burn pellets made of compressed sawdust and other unusable particles of wood. The stoves are easily lit and designed to burn freely, without the maintenance of traditional wood stoves. The stove is automatically and steadily fed pellets with little adjustment from the homeowner/operator. Simply pour pellets into a hopper and an electrical element pushes them into a firebox where the pellets are burned. A fan feeds the flame and blows the newly heated air throughout the house.

Benefits Of Pellet Stoves

There are many benefits to investing in a pellet stove. For starters, many homeowners prefer to heat their homes with pellets because they are affordable. Rather than wood that needs to be harvested, chopped and/or purchased, pellets are easily obtained at many supply stores. Additionally, pellet stoves are steadily fed pellets so these types of stoves don’t need to be tended to like traditional fireplaces or other wood-burning appliances.

Beyond convenience, pellet stoves are very efficient. In fact, pellet stoves are built to control the fuel-to-air ratio, so fires burn evenly and last longer. Additionally, because of the automatic feed system, you won’t waste pellets but will instead burn an even fire that maximizes heat output.

Environmental Benefits Of Pellet Stoves

Beyond the convenience and efficiency of pellet stoves there are several environmental benefits to investing in this type of heat. Pellets are made from wood, a renewable material. However, pellets differ from traditional wood-burning appliances because they burn the leftover materials builders can’t use such as sawdust and scraps. By using the parts of a renewable source that are typically wasted, pellet stoves are one of the more environmentally friendly heating options available on the market. Pellets are also considered a clean-burning source of heat, which emits less toxins and carbon monoxide into the environment.

Other Benefits Of Pellet Stoves

  • Pellet stoves have an attractive, sleek appearance
  • Choose from cast iron, stainless steel and other durable, attractive metals
  • Maximize heat output without taking up a lot of space
  • Low smoke output while burning
  • Once installed, pellet stoves are affordable to maintain
  • No chopping wood
  • Wood is difficult to come by in many regions

The experts at Beach Stove & Fireplace in Westhampton Beach, NY have a variety of pellet stoves and inserts you can choose from. Beyond superior products we can also help you install your new pellet stove correctly. Invest in the very best when choosing a pellet stove that will save you money and efficiently heat your home.
