Benefits of a free-standing stove

There are a number of surprising benefits to installing a free-standing gas stove as your next heating appliance!

– Takes up less space. Traditional fireplaces can be bulky, taking up space above, below, and to the right and left of the actual firebox; in homes where square footage is at a premium, this can make even small fireplaces too big to install. Free-standing stoves, however, take up less floor and wall space when installed – without taking over an entire room.
– Create a minimalist design. Because they do not have a mantle, hearth, or surround, free-standing stoves create a minimalist design. These unique stoves are available in both more traditional or modern styles; this allows you to choose the perfect stove for your home and decorating style.
– Control over heat. Most stoves have temperature controls, allowing homeowners to enjoy their stoves while controlling how much heat they put out. Free-standing stoves can be used as a primary heat source in many homes; likewise, they can also be used to supplement your home’s heating in an effort to reduce heating costs during the cold months of winter.

Why switch to gas?

While some homeowners prefer the look and feel of a real wood burning fire, there are a number of advantages to switching to a gas stove. The following are just a few reasons to consider using gas in your home!

– Heat at the push of a button. Wood fireplaces and stoves require extensive work to start a fire, keep it going, as well as a long cooling off period after the fire ends. Gas heating appliances start and stop burning at the touch of a button, making it possible to switch the stove on and off precisely when you want to use it.
– No more hassle of wood storage. Cutting, stacking, and storing firewood can take a significant amount of time – and space. Gas stoves do not require you to store extra fuel in your home – or venture out to the woodpile in freezing temperatures.
– Efficient, inexpensive heat. Gas heating appliances provide extremely fuel efficient heat; this can benefit both the environment and your wallet! Many homeowners who use a wood stove as a primary heating appliance can save money on heat and fuel costs when switching to gas.

Check Out Our Propane Alternatives

Propane has long been considered a clean burning and cheap way to heat your home in fireplaces, grills, and more. However, many of our customers have noticed the serious shortage of propane in Michigan – and across the Midwest. Lowering the thermostat or using the fireplace less frequently can help conserve propane. However, having a cold home during harsh winter conditions is not a long term solution.

Wood fireplaces and stoves.

There is nothing quite like the smell, sight, and warmth of a crackling, wood burning fire. Modern wood burning fireplaces and stoves have come a long way from their inefficient masonry counterparts; new wood burning heating appliances are more efficient than ever before. In addition, they can be used to heat everything from a room to an entire home.

Along with their improving efficiency, many homeowners choose wood because of its low cost, environmental impact, and availability. Buying firewood is often an inexpensive endeavor; enterprising homeowners can even cut, chop, stack, and season their own wood for pennies. Likewise, as a renewable resource there is little risk of ever running out of firewood. Finally, firewood is readily available and can be bought almost anywhere from private dealers to at local home improvement stores.

Pellet stoves and inserts.

Pellet stoves and inserts are an excellent alternative for homeowners who like the look and feel of wood fires but want an easier to use, more efficient alternative. Pellets are created from compressed, recycled wood parts and pieces; they burn hotter, create less smoke, and less behind less ash and residue than traditional wood logs. Likewise, they are considered to be carbon neutral by many. This is since they are made from recycled parts of an already renewable energy source.

Pellet stoves and inserts are easy to operate. Depending on the size of the hopper, it may only need to be reloaded once per day. Bags of pellets are relatively inexpensive and typically resemble bags of mulch. This makes them easy to stack and store.

Gas fireplaces and inserts.

Many homeowners who already use a propane heating appliance prefer the benefits of gas to other fuel sources. We offer a variety of natural gas fireplaces, inserts, and stoves to match your home’s décor and style. Whether you prefer sleek and contemporary or rustic and traditional, we have a variety of gas heating appliances to meet your needs.

Don’t let Michigan’s propane shortage leave you out in the cold this winter. Instead, consider switching to an alternate heat source. Contact the experts at Clean Sweeps of Michigan today for more information on finding the right wood, pellet, or natural gas heating appliance for your home!
