Sometimes you’re just looking to make a change, and many times, spring is when you feel like doing so. You’ve been cooped up in the house all winter, watching the snow build up and listening to the winds howl, and as you sit, you contemplate what changes you would like to make in your home, changes that will make next winter cozier and more comfortable. Maybe you have a fireplace, but want to make it more efficient or just update the look. Or, maybe you don’t have a fireplace but have always wanted one. You know there are different types to choose from: gas, pellet or wood burning fireplaces or inserts. But how do you know which is right for your heating needs? Just call the Chimney Doctors of Colorado and we’ll be happy to discuss your options and help you choose.
What Type of Appliance Are You Looking For?
There are pros and cons to each of the heating choices, and we can help you decide how to best meet your heating needs. Wood stoves are more efficient than they once were, and there’s just something comforting and beautiful about watching a wood fire snap and pop, whether in a fireplace or a freestanding device. Another advantage of using wood as a heat source is the fact that it is renewable and readily available, easy to get, and not as expensive as some other heating sources. On the downside, however, you do have to have a place to store the seasoned wood. If you’re limited on space but want that natural-looking fire, you might want to consider pellets.
Pellet burners use pellets, usually made of wood but also sometimes made of other compressed material. These pellets have a few advantages over wood, one of the main advantages being that, because they are compressed and relatively uniform in size, they can be easily stored, usually in 40 pound bags. Like wood, pellets are easy to buy and are a renewable energy source, but an advantage they have over wood is that they come already seasoned, unlike the firewood you cut yourself or buy.
If you want a beautiful fire source without the fuss of cutting firewood, the hassle of storing the pellets, or the work of laying the fire and getting it started, you might want to consider a gas burning appliance. With a flick of a switch, you have a fire going. This can be a perfect option for someone who wants to just relax at the end of the day without any of the fuss of building a fire.
