A safe wood burning system consists of:
- A safety certified stove, fireplace or furnace
- The right type of chimney for the appliance
- A system design that avoids safety compromises
- Reliable advice on safe installation, or preferably, installation by a qualified professional
Before you make decisions about your new hearth, visit at least two specialty stove and fireplace retail stores and ask a lot of questions. Only then will you begin to get a balanced view of how to match your needs and objectives with a system that will achieve them.
The choices you make now will pay off later in comfort and piece of mind.
