If You Don’t Want a Wood-Burning Fireplace, Consider These Options
Wood-burning fireplaces can bring a great amount of joy to a house. However, these traditional fireplaces require extensive cleaning and maintenance, and many homeowners would prefer not to deal with storing wood and carting it to the hearth. Fortunately, the wood-burning fireplace is not the only type available. If you would like a fireplace in West Hartford, CT to give your house cozy comfort during the winter, you have a number of excellent options aside from a standard wood-burning fireplace.

Call our fireplace specialists today to find out more about the choices you have for fireplaces. We will use our expertise to locate the right type to enliven, beautify, and warm your household.
Gas Log Fireplace
If you have a natural gas line entering your home that you use to power the stove, oven, and/or heating system, installing a gas log fireplace is an excellent choice as a wood-burning alternative. Gas log fireplaces turn on with the flick of a switch, and their design and the appearance of the permanent logs on the hearth creates a look similar to that of a wood-burning fireplace—just without consuming wood or creating ash and creosote. Because gas is a less expensive fuel than electricity, gas logs are very cost-effective to run.
For the most convenient, easy-to-use, and safe option for a fireplace, an electric model is a good way to go. Proper installation can make an electric fireplace look attractive, it attaches directly into your power supply, and it doesn’t require any venting of fumes.
Pellet Burning Stove
These freestanding stoves are superb choices if you do not have a masonry chimney or room for a standard fireplace. Freestanding stoves vent through a pipe that goes into the nearest wall and then out through a chimney flue. These stoves do not burn wood, but instead burn high-efficiency compressed pellets that are easier to store and use than wood-burning fireplaces. (If you do want a wood-burning fireplace, but don’t have a masonry chimney or sufficient space, there are also free-standing wood-burning stoves available.)
Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning specializes in excellent services for fireplaces. No matter what sort of fireplace you are looking for to add warmth and a pleasant atmosphere to your home, our fireplace experts can help you find the best model and install it.
