Wood Fireplaces – Choosing Between Masonry or Zero Clearance

Masonry or zero clearance are the most common fireplace styles to choose from – and provide different looks you will want to consider.

Masonry Fireplace is a brick structure, usually built into a home during construction with a brick chimney, which is a traditional wood-burning fireplace.

Zero Clearance Fireplace are pre-manufactured fireplaces that can be installed almost directly against combustible materials like wood, walls, or panelling. It can be framed into your home during construction, or at a later time.

Fireplace Insert is a sealed box that is placed (inserted) into an existing masonry fireplace. As a result, the old inefficient wood fireplace is upgraded to a new high-efficiency fireplace that will produce more heat and use less fuel.  It is an excellent way to save on costs, while still improving upon the style and look you want to achieve.

The Nostalgic Smell of a Wood Burning Fireplace

Choosing Between Heat and Style

Although you don’t necessarily have to truly choose one or the other, when it comes to a wood burning stove – you need to be aware or the size of your room and what role your wood burning fireplace is going to play as a heat source.

The most common options, when it comes to today’s wood fireplaces, are either catalytic or non-catalytic. Both are highly effective in heating your home but offer differing performance options we would love to discuss with you.

As we move into fall, we are proud to highlight the Blaze King King 40 and Princess 32 Stoves this month at our Langley location, which is an amazing option for families seeking to heat their homes.
