Wood Stoves, Inserts, and Fireplaces
There is no other home furnishing quite like a wood stove and no other flame with the authenticity of a wood-burning fire. Wood stoves spread a warm, cheerful glow throughout your home and their accessibility to fuel will set your mind at ease. Year in and year out, wood is the most consistent type of fuel burned in the Northeast. The versatility of wood adds to its popularity because a wood stove can be used as a supplemental or primary heat source. Depending on the size and layout of your home, a wood-heating appliance may heat your entire home during the winter season!
Unlike wood stoves from thirty or forty years ago, today’s wood stoves are highly efficient and burn cleaner. Berkshire Hearth & Home’s wood stoves consistently earn recognition from the United States Environmental Protection Agency for their efficient use of natural resources and their low emissions. Typically, a new wood-burning appliance can reduce your heating costs anywhere from 40% to 60%. Additionally, modern wood stoves take up less space, burn less fuel, are insulated better, and produce heat for longer periods of time.
Because traditional fireplaces can create heat loss of anywhere from 60% to 70% in your home, a wood insert is a perfect replacement. A new wood stove from Berkshire Hearth & Home not only has an extended burn time, but also produces less exhaust, which results in less creosote buildup in your flue.
Berkshire Hearth & Home also sells fireplaces that are built like wood stoves. They give you the look of a fireplace with the efficiency of a wood stove. They can even reduce the masonry costs of your fireplace. Finally, adding any wood stove increases the resale value of your home.
