Now, this process comes with some decision making, and one of the biggest choices you’ll need to make is what kind of fuel would work best for your home and lifestyle. Our company offers three fuel types: wood, gas, and pellet. Each has its own advantages and will contribute something different to your home. Learn more about each below, and please reach out if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!
About Our Gas Stoves
Gas appliances have countless benefits, and it’s not surprising that many families are choosing this fuel type for their homes. You get a steady, constant stream of heat, and there are no messy logs or ash piles involved either. Just flip a switch or push a button, and you are all set! This also means no time wasted building a fire or waiting for it to finally die down, which is perfect for those with busy lifestyles and hectic schedules.
Along with being extremely easy to operate, gas units are extremely efficient. You won’t have to worry about a lack of heat because these stoves always deliver. And if you’re stressed about losing the authenticity that accompanies a wood-burning stove, don’t stress! Gas options now come with realistic-looking gas logs, so you can get that traditional look and feel you’re hoping for.
Now, many assume that since gas appliances require far less maintenance on the part of the homeowner they don’t require professional inspections or sweepings as often as their wood-burning counterparts. This is far from true! It is still vital that you invest in an annual inspection to keep things running safely and more efficiently month after month. There could be broken down parts, deposits of acidic water, or gaps and cracks in your chimney. Never neglect the care that your home and family deserve!
Interested In A Wood-Burning Unit?
So, there’s no doubt that gas-fueled stoves take the cake as far as convenience levels are concerned, but there are a lot of homeowners out there that feel that nothing beats the smells and sounds associated with an actual live fire. If this sounds like you, then never fear – we have lots of great models to choose from.
What are the benefits of a wood stove? Wood is an economical and environmentally-friendly fuel source, so you won’t need to stress about your carbon footprint, and they heat your living space quickly and effectively. They also come in many style and size options, so your new unit will easily be able to fit in with your current decor and aesthetic.
Keep in mind that this is one fuel type that requires a bit more work on your end. You’ll need to haul and store wood, and you’ll also need to know how to build and maintain fires. You’ll also need a dependable source of seasoned only firewood for this option. There’s also typically a bit more mess involved between ash building up and wood chips landing on your floor. That being said, many feel that this simply adds to the ambiance. If you’re up for it, then check out our wood stoves today!
Consider A Pellet Stove
Pellet stoves are really easy to operate. Just load them up, and let the hopper automatically dispense the wood pellets as needed! These units will run for a long time without needing to be refueled, and they burn cleaner and more efficiently than a lot of other options on the market. If you are looking to burn wood, but love the convenience of the gas-fueled unit, this could be the perfect fit for your household.
Another great feature of pellet stoves is that they use recycled wood chips, so you can help minimize waste, and release fewer emissions, too – a win-win! This fuel is also low cost and easy to store, so you won’t be left stressed out. It’ll be easier than ever to relax at the end of a long day.
