Custom Glass Fireplace Doors

Your fireplace works for you year after year. Whether your home has been in your family for generations or it is a recent purchase, you want it to fit your needs, your décor, and your personality. Whatever products you choose and whatever services you schedule, it’s important also that they fit your budget as well.

Save Money with Custom Fireplace Doors

Your fireplace may be costing you money and you don’t even know it. Throughout summer conditioned air can escape through the chimney, raising your cooling costs. This happens also in winter with your heated air so that instead of helping you heat your home, your fireplace may actually be making it more difficult, costing you money and wasting your fuel. With custom glass doors, you can keep drafts from flowing up and out of the chimney. They are more effective at sealing the fireplace opening than is a standard throat damper, and when the doors are closed, the radiant heat from your fire will continue heating your home. They are affordable, economical, and actually beautify your fireplace in the process.

Upgrade Your Hearth with Custom Fireplace Doors

Not only will a new set of fireplace doors save you money year-round, but they are commonly used to cover the unsightly louvers on old and outdated fireplaces. When you call a professional to get started with this process, we can help match you with the best doors for your fireplace. Our models range from sleek and contemporary, rustic and Old World, industrial, standard, and even invisible. Whatever your fireplace needs, we have it. Custom fireplace doors are a great way to add value and style to your home at a minimum price.

If you’re looking to refinance your home or bypass a major repair, there are other options to consider as well.

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.

Benefits 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!

New York State Residential Pellet Stove Incentive Program

Pellet stoves are the most efficient option for wood-burning heat, burning pellets, manufactured granules of recycled wood products. The manufacture of pellets cuts down on waste at saw mills and instead creates capital. Pellet stoves are often preferred not only for their benefits on the environment, but also the benefits they offer to the homeowners themselves.

  • Convenient Use and Low Maintenance. 
    Pellet stoves are easily lit, fuel is easy to maintain, requiring no cutting or seasoning, and the stove keeps consistent heat. Each pellet stove is equipped with a hopper that feeds the fire consistently. This allows the fire to burn while the homeowners are asleep or away, never again coming home to a cold house.
  • Higher Efficiency and Less Filth. 
    Because of the high heat and specially designed pellet fuel, pellet stoves burn their fuel completely. This means less soot, creosote, and particulate pollution that will need to be cleaned from your chimney system.

Renewable Heat

New York state encourages the use of renewable energy to produce heat rather than electricity or fossil fuels. This is done by using solar power instead, or wood combustion. Pellet stoves are a high-efficiency, low-emission wood heating system. This system is cleaner than traditional wood stoves and boilers. For this reason, New York state offers incentives for homeowners who choose pellet stoves, encouraging homeowners to Go Green.

Incentives

  1. There are two incentive options for New York residents to benefit from this program. They are based on income and only available for primary residences without access to natural gas.
     $1500 toward the purchase of a new pellet stove with recycling of an existing stove (wood, pellet, or insert with firebox) in a primary residence household.
  2. $2000 for households with income below 80 percent of county median. Plus an additional $500 for an additional recycled stove (wood, pellet, or insert with firebox).

Additionally, families may qualify for a low-interest loan to help pay for eligible project costs. See other program details and required forms, including the program application here.

Professional Installation

There are certain specifications for this program. This includes only pellet stoves with a particulate matter output of 2.0 grams per hour (PM 2.9 g/h) or less and be on the US EPA Certified Wood Heater list. Certified professionals are familiar with these requirements. Beach Stove sells these pellet stoves frequently, and our experts are more than salespeople. At Beach Stove and Fireplace we match our customers with the best product for their home, their need, and New York state green incentives. Then we refer customers to our installation partners, Guaranteed Chimney, certified chimney sweeps, and old fashioned, reliable service.

Guaranteed Chimney is one of only three participating contractors on Long Island, and operates throughout Eastern Suffolk County. When you purchase a pellet stove from Beach Stove and Fireplace, you can also benefit from the expert services of Guaranteed Chimney.
