Wood Fireplaces

Get unbeatable warmth and ambience with a wood fireplace

If you’re the type who loves the crackle and pop of a wood fire, then nothing will beat a wood fireplace. There are a lot of benefits to wood; it’s sustainable, renewable and more affordable than natural gas.

If you’re not chopping yourself you’re sure to be able to find a local farmer who will sell it by the cord or half cord (he may even deliver it to you.) Many homeowners experiment with different types of wood (oak, maple) to bring the beauty of the outside in.

Bring the charm and aromas of natural wood into your home. Imagine cozying up in front of a roaring fire to binge watch your favorite TV series. While wood fireplaces do require chopping or purchasing and storing of wood, the comfort you and your family will derive is well worth it. The most popular types of wood fireplaces are masonry and pre-fab.

Masonry Wood Fireplaces

Masonry fireplaces are made from concrete, brick, or stone, usually when the house itself is built. They are vented via the flue and chimney of the house. While they can tolerate intense heat, much of that heat is lost up the chimney. These fireplaces are used mostly as supplemental heat and for ambience.  Masonry fireplaces are built to last a lifetime.

Pre-fab Wood Fireplaces

Pre-fab fireplaces are made in a factory and then installed in the home. They are typically made of metal and do not require the sturdy foundation of a masonry fireplace, so they can be placed in any room of the home, even on second floors. They do not lose as much heat as masonry fireplaces, but are still used more for supplemental heat and ambience in a single room. Pre-fab fireplaces have a life span of approximately 15-20 years with proper care.
