Find the Perfect Fireplace

Fireplaces are the most traditional hearth product found in homes, and for good reason – they provide warmth and comfort in additional to looking beautiful inside the home.

Fireplaces come in many shapes, sizes, styles and fuel types. Fuel type refers to the fuel that is burned to produce heat. The most popular are wood and gas.

Gas Fireplaces

Gas fireplaces were introduced in the early 1990’s, and quickly became the indoor fireplace of choice for many homeowners and builders because of their ease of use and efficiency.

The most popular gas fireplace is the direct vent gas fireplace, which allows intake and emissions directly out of the home via a venting system. Gas fireplaces run on natural gas or propane.

Wood Fireplaces

Wood fireplaces continue to warm homes, especially those in rural locations where natural gas is not yet available.

Because of government regulations in 2020, wood-burning fireplaces are now more efficient and environmentally friendly than ever before. Most wood fireplaces also feature new technology to make controlling the temperature and burn times easy and more convenient.

Jay was extremely helpful and explained to me all my options when I wasn’t exactly sure what I needed. He gave me the pros and cons and recommended what would be best for my family. Convenience and hassle was a big thing for me so he worked around that. I bought a beautiful pellet stove and I’m excited to use my sunroom all year around!

First let me say this. The whole staff was extremely friendly and willing to help. Second this was my first experience with a wood stove since I was a child and I never had to do anything with them back then so lets just say I was a new person with nearly no experience. We purchased a Kuma wood stove from the Kernal Burner. We had them do the professional install. This stove is unbelievable, we have a three season room at the back of our home that is all windows and has no furnace ducts in it. It has always been cold and uncomfortable in the winter. I would winterize it with plastic inside and out as well as bubble wrap and we would never be able to see out the windows it was miserable to be honest. The cost of propane and energy is skyrocketing and my wife and I are not getting younger. So we chose to buy a wood stove to try to save money as well as not have to spend a week every year on a ladder winterizing and then taking it all down again. Added to that is I have a medical condition and it aggravates and causes joint pain if I am cold. Since installation we have done nothing but keep a couple windows and the door open and I am comfortable in tshirts. The back room is over 70 and I could not be happier. This was one of the best experiences of the whole year in 2023 was dealing with The Kernal Burner and their people.

They had wood pellets ready to be loaded and on the way home with me. The staff was very friendly. I like the showroom floor. I might have to go back and look at some or at least an upgrade for my place.

I needed to replace the face of my fireplace. Allen was SO helpful! Due to the age he was unable to replace it, but helped me find a way to get new glass and the paint needed to make it fresh. He could have tried tell me I needed a new fireplace (which I probably would've believed), but showed honesty and integrity.
