Our stoves are available as free-standing units or as inserts. A good option for stove inserts is a pellet stove. With pellet stoves, you’re burning a bio-fuel without the hassle of wood. This option is a great natural, environmentally-friendly choice to keep the look and feel of real fire while saving money. These are usually available in cast iron and steel varieties, and can be a stand-alone or built into the wall.
With pellet stoves, the fire is contained in a box inside the unit producing minimal smoke. This helps lessen the smell of smoke in your home. The pellets create less ash than firewood and are made from recycled materials that are heavily compressed. This helps reduce the moisture content.
As a dry fuel, pellets create more heat, creating the stove to burn hotter and cleaner than with firewood or other materials. Pellet stove are beneficial because they emit fewer pollutants into the air than with traditional fireplaces.
CR Gas Logs & Fireplaces has vent-free and direct-vent models for stoves. If you purchase a direct vent, it may require an existing or new chimney. If you choose a vent-free model, you don’t have to worry about any ventilation!
As with any fireplaces or stoves, you will need a permit. This ensures you are covered by your homeowners insurance should anything happen with your equipment.
