Wood, Pellet, or Gas

Are you looking for ways to supplement your home’s heating budget? Do you wish for a nice warm fire to bundle up around? No matter your reason for adding a heating appliance to your home, Old Smokey’s offer a wide variety of home heating appliances. Whether you are looking for a fireplace, stove, or insert, all of our appliances are of the highest quality and efficiency standards. However, our appliances do not burn the same type of fuel, and depending on your preferences and access to fuel, Old Smokey’s can help you choose a stove that is right for you.

Wood Burning Appliances

fireplace insert Some people love the dancing flames, crackling wood, and the warm glow that a real wood fire creates. We agree that only wood fires can create a rustic ambiance, which is hard to beat. Many people love wood-burning appliances because wood is a cheap fuel option. If you’re looking for an appliance that produces great heat and provides wonderful, warm ambiance to your home, wood burning appliances are a great option for you.

Pellet Burning Appliances

Pellet appliances burn little pellets of compressed wood. There are a lot of stores that sell wood pellets, so it is also an easy fuel source to buy and store. Most pellet burning appliances are outfitted with a hopper that slowly releases the pellets while you burn, which makes them a very efficient heat producer.

Gas Burning Appliances

Gas burning appliances burn natural gas or propane. With gas appliances, your fuel is piped directly into the appliance. Some people like this because it means that you don’t need to spend time and energy chopping and hauling wood. They are easy to operate and usually only require flipping a switch. They also burn cleaner than other fuel options. This means you don’t have to clean ashes out of your stove after use, and there are also less creosote buildup in your flue because of it.

We Can Help!

At Old Smokey’s, we also want to remind you the importance to having your appliance installed by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney technician. A CSIA certified technician has the knowledge of all the building codes and regulations. If these standards are not met, it can cause your appliance to not work properly, and it can be a safety hazard too. That’s why it’s always best to leave installation to the professionals.

No matter what you are looking for in an appliance, we’ve got just what you need. If you have questions about the types of appliances we carry, don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our showroom at 220 W State St, Ashley, IN 46705. We would love to help you find the right appliance today!
