Why Use Wood Burning

Using energy from the sun, nature’s carbon cycle goes around, from the atmosphere to the forest and back. Here is how it works: trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air as they grow. In fact, about half their dry weight is this absorbed carbon. As old trees die and decay, or are consumed in a forest fire, their carbon is again released to the air as carbon dioxide. This is nature’s carbon cycle. When firewood is used as an energy source, part of the natural carbon cycle is brought into our homes to heat them. If the entire fuel cycle is considered, a clean burning fireplace will heat your home more efficiently and with lower environmental impact than any other fuel option. The other fuel options oil, gas and coal are fossil fuels, and when they are burned, old carbon that was buried deep within the earth is released to the atmosphere. The rising concentration of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel use is linked to global warming, climate change and the unusual weather we’ve seen in recent years.

Why Use Electric

Electric heating doesn’t require a flue or pipe-work, so there are no restrictions on building layout or design and no regulatory or planning issues associated with positioning of flues. Electric heaters can also be installed virtually anywhere in the room, again aiding freedom of design.

Safe & Reliable
Whatever type of heating you choose; safety is always an important consideration. Because electric heaters do not burn fuel internally to generate heat, there are none of the associated safety risks, such as carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions. And as there are no radiators to leak or burst, there is less risk of damage to properties. Also with virtually no moving parts to break down or wear out, electric heating is extremely reliable and will normally run for much longer than gas.

Heating With Pellets

Pellet stoves offer a dramatic improvement in the convenience of heating with solid fuel. Wood pellets are handled in bags and are therefore easily and cleanly stored. A single loading of a pellet stove can provide long hours of warmth. Pellet stoves also provide a special comfort associated with wood burning. The combination of fans delivering warm air currents and the direct comfort of radiant heat provides special satisfaction on a cold winter day. The heat provided is even and constant, due to the auto fuel feed responding to owner settings. Pellet stoves also offer strong environmental benefits; pellets not only reduce dependence on finite supplies of fossil fuels like oil and gas, but they also put to good use materials that would otherwise unnecessarily and expensively add to our waste disposal problems. In addition, pellet stoves burn very cleanly and offer the lowest emissions of unwanted pollutants of all solid fuel burning appliances.

Why Own A Spa

After a long, strenuous day almost nothing beats a nice soak in a spa. The hot, bubbly water soothes pains away and loosens up cramped muscles while the water vapor rises to your nose and breathing in the steam loosens up congestion. When you leave the hot tub, you feel relaxed — ready for a good night’s sleep. It’s a wonderful experience each and every time! All Emerald spas are manufactured to the highest standards of design, quality, and construction. So the only decisions to make are what size and seating arrangement best suits your lifestyle and then what amenities and extras suit your fancy.
