Use Tax Free Weekend to Get Home Improvement Projects Done

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 31, 2012

There is a sales tax holiday coming up in Massachusetts. If you have any home improvement projects that need doing: gutters, insulation or fireplace inserts or stoves, this is your opportunity to save some money.

Gas and Wood burning stoves and fireplace inserts save you money on your heating bills. If you want a more efficient way to heat your home while adding ambiance, a fireplace is the answer. Many older homes in Worcester are drafty or inefficient, fireplace inserts and stoves increase your heating efficiency and add beauty to any room.

Speaking of those older drafty homes; new insulation is another way to improve your homes efficiency and decrease your heating bills. Insulating crawl spaces, attic spaces and drafty areas with either blanket, spray foam or blown-in insulation keeps your home the temperature you want it.

Need new gutters? Good, because tax free weekend will be the perfect time to get them. Weather you want aluminum gutters, a gutter guard system or copper gutters, a new gutter system will better protect your home.

Wood or Pellet Fireplace Inserts Heat Your Home Better

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Wood and pellet burning fireplace inserts help you cut down on your home heating costs.  They also make your fireplace  more efficient and more attractive.

If you have a fireplace in your home, then you are a prime candidate for a wood burning or pellet burning insert. They are a much more efficient source of heat than an open fireplace. And, for the remainder of the month, they also qualify for a home energy tax credit.

Essentially, a wood burning fireplace insert is a wood stove that is installed inside an open fireplace. They allow you to maximize heating efficiency and really benefit from the full potential of your fireplace.

You’ve probably heard plenty about making your home more energy efficient. Well now is the time to act.  Our Winslow Pellet stove insert can heat a home as large as 2000 square feet. Our wood burning fireplace inserts can heat anywhere from 1000-1800 square feet of space.

So if you are looking to increase the value of your home, increase your comfort this winter, and decrease your costs, contact Custom Insulation about wood and pellet fireplace inserts.

Fireplaces Add Value and Ambience

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Gas and wood fireplaces and gas and wood fireplace inserts are a great and easy addition to any home. And the benefits are many.

By keeping the heat in your home rather than sending it up the chimney, a fireplace or fireplace insert provides soothing warmth. You deserve a nice relaxing fire when you get home from work and a fireplace insert will give you just that.

What’s more? When you decide to sell your home, you’ll find that a working fireplace or fireplace insert adds value. Home buyers today love a working fire.

The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association sites that adding a fireplace can add up to 10.8% to a home’s total value and the National Association of Home Builders lists a fireplace as one of the twelve factors that greatly impacts the value of a standard home.

Adding a fireplace insert to your home is not as hard as it sounds. At Custom Insulation, we can show fireplace inserts by Lennox are the very best in gas and wood burning fireplaces. Regardless of your décor or your heating needs – there is a fireplace from Lennox that will fit your home perfectly.

So you don’t have a chimney? No problem. Where do you want your new fireplace? As long as it is on an outside wall, we can vent it.
