Tips for Choosing Wood-Burning Fireplaces
If you have already made the decision to go with a wood-burning fireplace instead of a gas or electric one, the next step is choosing from the many different styles and sizes of wood-burning fireplaces. At 31-W Insulation, our knowledgeable staff is happy to help you select the right one for your needs. Here are a few of the things to consider that will be a part of the discussion so you are completely satisfied with your final choice.
- Heating Capacity- Wood-burning fireplaces come in various sizes and types, with each having the capacity to provide warmth as measured by a system called a BTU, which stands for British Thermal Unit. The higher the BTUs, the larger an area that can be heated and/or the higher temperature range that can be accomplished. It is also important to consider the efficiency of the unit. If you will be buying wood, it makes sense to use less. If you’ll be chopping and splitting wood from your property, you likely would prefer to do less of it, if possible.
- Log Capacity- You will need to decide if you want to be handling smaller logs, which are easier, or larger logs that will burn longer. The log capacity also determines how much you can put into wood-burning fireplaces at one time, so consider how often long you’ll want it to produce heat before it needs more wood. The layout of the fireplace dictates which way the logs go in, which is another consideration.
- Aesthetics- There are wood-burning fireplaces that are very basic, yet extremely functional, and others that are a beautiful addition to any room. Consider what you want to accomplish in this regard.
