Fireplace Options for Heating

Delivering Quality Comfort to the Homes and Businesses of Hartford County and New Haven County

In Hartford, people use a variety of different heating systems, from forced-air furnaces to geothermal systems that tap into the heat of the earth itself. But for all the heating options we have, sometimes the old-fashioned ways are still the best. A fireplace provides romantic atmosphere and inexpensive heat, as well as making an excellent gathering place for your family on a cold winter’s night.  You may not think a traditional fireplace is possible, especially if your home can’t support a large chimney. Luckily, there are alternate fireplace options for heating in Hartford, CT.

One of the best is a wood-burning stove, which actually provides a more efficient heating option than classic fireplaces. Wood-burning stoves are self-contained, which keeps the heat focused, and with the exception of a small, easily installed venting chimney, they don’t need a lot of significant alterations to your home. Some types of stove burn pellets instead of wood, with an eye on more efficient heating. But the romanticism one associates with fireplaces remains fully intact, and can provide a reliable source of comfort as well as inexpensive heating.

If wood-burning stoves don’t work, you can also consider an electric or gas fireplace. Both require minimal adjustment to your house, and while they also require a gas line or electrical connection to provide energy, they’re still strong alternatives to more traditional fireplace models.

The bad news is that not every home can utilize every fireplace option. The good news is that a trained service technician can inspect the unique contours of your home, and provide a recommendation based on your needs and wishes.
