Newer technology has brought the industry of wood-fueled products into a whole new era. Today’s units are so much more efficient than even 10 years ago. Burning less firewood to create more heat not only decreases our use of natural resources but also helps to keep our homes more comfortable during the extreme weather changes that we see today. Improved dampers enable us to control the produced much more easily. Yet when we want that extra heat, the units can meet the demand.
We no longer have huge 4 cubic feet fireboxes that need loads and loads of firewood just to keep a smaller home warm. Today’s units are capable of heating up to 1000 square feet with a very small 1.6 cubic foot firebox. That means you need to use a lot less firewood, which means a lot less work.

Gas-fueled fireplaces and stoves provide the least amount of work while still providing an incredible amount of heat. Utilizing one of these units is the basis of Zone Heating. A furnace is capable of producing lots of heat but must then be channeled through various ducts throughout your house. Those ducts actually rob some of the heat that’s being produced. By using a fireplace or stove in the rooms you use the most, you produce the bulk of the heat in the area where you want it. That is zone heating in its simplest form.
Our main line of Regency gas products not only has some of the best efficiency numbers in the industry, but also has the best warranty available. Knowing that the company offers such a comprehensive warranty, you can rest assured that the unit will continue providing for you with very few maintenance or repair issues.

Pellet-fired units can remove a lot of the work involved like in a wood-fired system. Since the fuel is bagged, there is no cutting or splitting of firewood. These units can produce heat around the clock with the only work involved being checking on the pellet hopper and adding a bag of fuel. Pellet units do require more cleaning maintenance than a wood or gas unit does. This includes weekly, monthly and annual vacuuming. The heat output is generally between 10,000 BTU and 60,000 BTU. That is small enough for a single room that is just too cold for comfort, or large enough to heat an entire house. Read more about Pellet Stoves >>
