Experience the Warmth and Charm of Wood Stoves in Cape Cod
Gone are the days of smoky-filled air and flying sparks associated with wood burner stoves. Today's latest models of wood stoves boast improved safety features and burn times, making them a cost-effective and eco-friendly way to heat your Cape Cod home.
With a wood-burning stove, you won't be at the mercy of unpredictable fossil fuel prices, and you'll be able to heat your home even during power outages.
Top Features of Wood Stoves:
Increased efficiency: Modern wood stoves require less firewood to heat your home. Some high-efficiency models may even be eligible for government rebates.
Reduced particle output: While every wood fire releases particles into the air, many systems minimize particle exhaust output. In the US, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) sets acceptable emissions guidelines to ensure manufacturers meet minimal standards and improve air quality.
Size and heat output: Planning on heating your entire house or just a room or two? Speak to our knowledgeable sales team, who can help you find the right size for your heating needs in Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, Sandwich, and beyond.
Removable ashpan: Many stove models come with a removable liner or ashpan that collects ashes during use. This makes it easier to clean and needs to be emptied periodically, perhaps weekly if you're using it daily.
Types of Firewood and Fuel
While you could technically chop your own firewood in Cape Cod or Plymouth, Massachusetts, it's essential to season the firewood first. Seasoned wood has been cut and allowed to cure or dry for six to 12 months, reducing the moisture content. Drier wood burns better, whereas "green" firewood creates more soot, produces less heat, and is harder to clean up.
Consider these fuel alternatives to traditional seasoned firewood:
Smart Logs: Long-burning logs designed for cleaner burning, resulting in less odor and easier cleanup. Made from a combination of hardwood by-products.
Bio Bricks: Compressed bricks made from recycled wood waste. They are easy to store and produce fewer ashes with longer burn times.
