Wood Stoves


Why burn wood in your home? The answer really needs to come from you and your families needs. Wood heat is a radiant heat that has a completely different feel from any other form of heat. For thousands of years folks have gathered around the warmth of a wood fire, either in the home or outside.

A real wood fire is always the root of the home as a focus for family, friends and conversation. Even the pets love it!  There is a creative process within heating your home with wood. Sure, it is easier to raise the thermostat on the furnace and send a check to the utility company, but not nearly as satisfying.  A wood fire requires some effort but the rewards of it are incomparable to any other form of heat. 

Wood is also a renewable energy source. A well-managed forest can be a renewable resource that can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing the need for coal, oil and gas that we also use for heating.

Wood Inserts


Wood inserts are basically a wood-burning wood stove without legs. It has a firebox that can slide into your existing masonry or if you have a metal fireplace. These inserts burn real wood logs. Most inserts are energy savings options making a super-efficient heater. Some inserts can save a homeowner as much as 35% on their energy bill. But, note that savings will depend on the insert's efficiency, the homes layout, the climate you live in, and the homes insulation as well as the height of the homes ceiling. 

If you choose a Wood Insert for your hearth, our installers will fit a stainless steel lining down your chimney. A decorative flange made of steel, porcelain or cast iron will surround the insert hiding the steel sides and filling the gap created between the hearth and box. There are doors with ceramic glass that help radiate heat into the room. Most inserts also creat convection heat and have a fan that is usually located under the firebox.

Wood inserts heat upwards anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet depending on the size itself.

Gas Stoves


A very popular selling feature in any home, according to Realtor.com, is a fireplace whether or not they will be used. A beautiful mantle is such a creative space to display family photos or stockings at Christmas time. Depending on what your fireplace needs are, there are choices to contemplate.  The styles of these free standing gas fireplaces are endless. Come by our showroom to see just a few of the many choices in styles.

Gas fireplaces have ease of use as their number one advantage. Flipping a switch or remote and the fire begins and immediately you are enjoying the benefits. There is no messy soot, ash or burned out logs to clean up. Maintainence is easy although you will want to have it inspected from time to time.

If you are looking for the ease of use yet still share in the ambiance of a fire, then a Gas Fireplace may be for you.

Gas Inserts


If you already have a prefab or a masonry fireplace then a gas insert may be for you. Enjoy real flames without the hassle of solid fuels. There are basically two types of gas inserts. Direct vent and ventless inserts.

The first type are direct vent units which can be vented through the existing chimney. The air inside your house and your neighborhood stays clean.  Direct-vent units are safest. They use the outside air to keep the flames burning. These also exhaust combustion gases and water vapor that is released by burning gas. 

 You can also choose one of  the vent less inserts that are available. The vent less inserts have a higher efficiency rating as there is no heat to escape up the chimney. But there may be some downsides to this type too. Exhaust fumes and mositure is released while burning and these remain in your house. An oxygen depletion sensor is equipped within the vent less stove. It turns the gas off before carbon monoxide becomes a dangerous level in the room. 

How you are using your home fireplace will determine your choice in a fireplace. Let our pros help you sort out the various choices.

One downside to a gas fireplace is that you will spend more on gas or propane than you would spend on wood or wood pellets to produce the same amount of heat.

Pellet Stoves


If you want to commit to a renewable energy source for your home, and you are away from your home for a major part of your day, a pellet stove may be for you.  This type of fireplace consists of the metal firebox, a door with heat proof glass, along with a flange and metal chimney liner.

A pellet stove burns processed wood that have come from logs that have been debarked, ground and dried. These are then compressed into small pellets that are poured into the top of the stove for filling. Pellets are usually more economic than other fuel sources and like traditional wood, are renewable. Another advantage to a pellet stove is that they are much easier to tend to then a wood burning stove or fireplace. The pellets burn efficiently and clean. Ease of storage compared to logs in another advantage to this type of stove. 

One downside to a pellet stove however, is since the pellets are processed wood, they are more likely more expensive than firewood. When determining the cost of operation of a pellet stove, consider cost and availability in your area. Typically pellet bags come in 40 lb. bags and cost anywhere from $3 to $5 per bag.

Our specialists here at Clean Sweep The Fireplace Shop can help coach a homeowner on the best stove to buy and also about how to care for these particular stoves.
