A wood fireplace is traditional and classic. People love them for many reasons including:
The Look You’re After in a Wood Fireplace
Models available right now feature a wide selection of sizes, shapes, and finishes. Whether you’re after a traditional look or a contemporary flair, wood fireplaces won’t disappoint.
Real Wood for a Real Fire
Gas, pellets and electricity are all fine heating fuels, but for some people, wood logs will always be the first choice. It’s hard to beat a real wood fire with its leaping flames and crackling embers as a centerpiece for gatherings on cold winter nights.
High Heat-efficiency Rating
Heat-efficiency ratings tell you the amount of heat your heating appliance generates that is transferred to the room rather than up the vent pipe. Wood-burning, zero-clearance fireplaces come in at 75% or 80% and higher, compared to about 20% with a traditional masonry fireplace. Modern wood fireplaces are heating machines.
Logs That Burn More Completely
The highly insulated zero-clearance design of today’s fireplaces allows wood logs to burn hotter and more thoroughly than in traditional open fireplaces. This means you use more of your fuel while producing less smoke to dirty up the venting system.
Never in history have wood fireplaces been cleaner-burning and friendlier to the environment. A carbon-neutral fuel, burning wood logs add no more carbon dioxide to the air than trees decomposing. The EPA will not approve any wood fireplace for sale unless it meets stringent environmental standards.
Installation of your new wood fireplace is easy when handled by NFI-certified fireplace technicians. These units can be placed in any framed wall without the need for major building or remodeling. Plus, unlike with masonry fireplaces, no chimney has to be built – a basic steel vent pipe is all that’s needed for ventilation.
Along with your new fireplace, consider having your installer add a stunning fireplace surround, a lovely mantle, a raised hearth and a selection of fine fireplace tools to complete the overall look of your hearth.
Zero-clearance wood-burning fireplaces are highly insulated, making them safe to be installed very close to any building materials of the house. The enormous level of heat is contained within the unit to prevent a possible fire or other structural damage.
