The Irreplaceable Wood Fireplace

Other kinds of fireplaces can’t touch the cozy and romantic ambiance of having a traditional, wood fireplace in the home. Also, having a fireplace that doesn’t burn real wood is just something that many people cannot imagine. You may be one of them.

Less Dependent on the Utility Company

As electricity bills continue to increase a little bit more every year, people are turning to the fireplace, as a primary heating source in their home. Most people find that it costs less to buy firewood than it does paying for utilities that are dependent on fossil fuels as their source. As such, fireplaces provide a way to not have to lean so much on the utility company.

Stay Snug as a Bug When the Power Goes Out

Furthermore, when winter storms hit, it’s not uncommon to lose electricity. But with a fireplace, you’ll still have lots of light with the added benefit of staying warm. Those who don’t, however, are usually freezing cold until the utility company has had time to fix the power lines.

Last but not least, the latest wood fireplaces are:

• Able to distribute heat using existing ductwork throughout the home
• Extremely efficient, producing enough heat to warm your entire home

Best Fire Glass Options

If you thought fire glass was just a fancy display for upscale hotels, think again. With a gas fireplace, you can have your own flashy fire show. More and more companies are designing and manufacturing the glass, making more styles and designs available to you. If you’re looking for something that’s both vibrant and functional and can literally warm up your home, fire glass is a great option.

Pick a Style

Deciding the shade of your fire glass might actually be the easy part. Once you’ve selected the color, you still have to pick from a variety of styles, such as:

• Reflective
• Smooth
• Lava rock

It might be easy to settle ona nice cobalt blue, but choosing how the glass will look when there are flames dancing around it is a whole different story. You can also choose from a variety of shapes, making the decision even harder.

Choose a Size

If you have a small fireplace or display, you may want to opt for smaller glass. If you’re decorating an outdoor pit, there are much bigger options that have a more impressive look.

Fire glass can transform your gas fireplace into an elegant source of light, as well as a piece of art. Visit this website to learn more about where you can buy fire glass in La Mesa.

4 Steps to Cleaning Your Pellet Stove

You have made an excellent decision in purchasing a pellet stove for its environmentally friendly burning, but have you cleaned it lately? While it is easy to ignore the regular upkeep of your stove, leaving it unclean can affect its functioning. If you are uncertain where to get started with your stove, here are four simple steps.

Use Quality Pellets

One of the most important steps in cleaning is maintenance, and using high quality pellets will ensure that your stove does not clog. Make sure that your pellets are dry and clean before placing them in the stove, and test small quantities before purchasing in bulk.

Inspect Before Each Use

You also want to quickly inspect the auger and hopper before adding pellets to your stove. You want to make sure that the device is clear of excess sawdust and debris, as these can cause major clogs and resulting issues.

Regularly Clean the Entire Stove

The glass, burn pot, heat exchanger and ash drawer needs to be cleaned on a frequent basis. You will want to check your manufacturer instructions for specific details on cleaning, but you can usually vacuum the burn pot, empty the ash drawer, use a cleaning rod in the exchanger and use glass cleaner on the glass.

Have the Stove Serviced

Once a year, you want to have your stove serviced and inspected by a professional. This will ensure that major issues are addressed before they cause problems and that everything is in working order. They will look at your pipes, venting system and ash traps.

Ultimately, completing regular maintenance on your stove will ensure that it stays in working order and problems do not arise. For more information on how to service your pellet stove in La Mesa, click here.

Warm Up Your Home With a Stylish Gas Fireplace

If you want to add immediate ambiance and flair to one of the rooms in your home, consider a gas fireplace. There are a number of beautiful styles to choose from, and because they burn clean and are convenient to use, they are one of the most practical fireplaces available on the market.

A Step Up From Previous Years

Unlike older models, inserts today have tremendous heat-producing capabilities. They use either natural gas or propane to power a strong flame that dances on:

• decorative glass chips
• stones
• fake logs

There are two kinds of gas fireplaces: vented options and ventless types that do not need a chimney. Also, the fire inside them is real, so you get that natural beauty that only a real fire can provide. But, no one will see the burners as the logs hide them, and the log inserts also enable the flames to spread throughout.

Save Money on Having to Heat Your Entire Home

A gas fireplace is not designed to heat up the entire home but will definitely warm a room up. By not having to heat your entire home then, you could end up significantly lowering your utility bills.
