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

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.

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

As with any new heating appliance, you want to purchase from a reputable stove specialist. 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.
