One of the benefits of woodburning is giving your family a sense of security.  Only a safe installation can do that.

Wood heat safety

Get it right so you don't have to worry

A safe woodburning 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.
