Choosing a New Heating Appliance for Your Richmond Home
We work closely with our Richmond customers to determine their specific heating needs. Each home is unique, and we make sure the fireplace, stove or fireplace insert we recommend will be just right to deliver the level of heat performance and decorative beauty you require.
When considering bringing home a new appliance, there are several decisions to make, and we’ll help you every step of the way.
Gas or Wood?
Fireplaces, heating stoves and fireplace inserts can run on either gas or wood fuel. Here are some of the specs of each.
Gas appliances: Very easy to start and stop; simple control of temperature; low maintenance; periodic cleaning and wiping down.
Wood appliances: Traditional crackling fires with amazing visuals; environmentally friendly fuel source; economical; heat always available even during power outages.
Both gas and wood appliances are available in a range of beautiful design styles, sizes and finishes, making it easy to accent your home’s décor.
This is a rating that tells you how much of the heat a given appliance produces will actually be available as heat for your home vs. being lost up the chimney or vent pipe.
Modern fireplaces, fireplace inserts and heating stoves carry ratings from around 60% efficiency all the way into the 90% range. Compare that to the 10% to 20% rating that’s typical for open-style masonry fireplaces and you can imagine the money you’ll save and the warmth you’ll enjoy.
As with heat-efficiency, BTU output will vary from model to model. The important thing is to purchase a new appliance that will be powerful enough to heat the area within your Richmond home you need heated.
Based on the size of the room where your unit will be installed, we’ll advise you on the optimal BTU capacity to keep you warm and comfortable on even the coldest Virginia winter days and nights.
Where to Install
Wood and gas fireplace inserts are self-contained units that fit into your existing masonry fireplace’s firebox. With heating stoves and zero-clearance (ZC) fireplaces, you have some options.
Gas and wood free-standing stoves: These powerful appliances can be installed just about anywhere in your Richmond home you choose – including away from walls – as long as there’s access for the vent pipe through a wall or the ceiling.
Gas and wood ZC fireplaces: These units are factory-built and safe to install in any wall in your home. They’re called “zero-clearance” because they’re heavily insulated and will not present a risk of fire or damage to wall boards, flooring or insulation.
Our expert installation team will help you decide on the perfect location in your home for your new stove or fireplace.
