Better Heat with Stoves and Fireplace Inserts During a Colder, Snowier Winter- Lexington, Natick, Weston

Are you ready for winter? Do you remember a few years ago, that winter of snow and cold? Well the Farmer’s Almanac is  saying that Winter 2013-14 will be colder than normal and snowier than normal too.

Wood inserts and gas inserts are a better way to heat your home. And, more and more homeowners in Lexington, Concord, Weston, Natick, Sudbury and the surrounding towns are figuring this out. Central heating systems just don’t heat evenly and the answer is not to turn up the heat. The answer is to better, more efficiently heat your favorite room.

Wood burning fireplace inserts and gas fireplace inserts are the perfect way to better heat the favorite rooms in your home. But they also add a level of coziness and ambiance that does not exist with an unused open hearth.

Where do you gather in your home with family and friends when you entertain? Family room, great room, living room, kitchen? In any of these rooms you can add a gas or wood fireplace insert and change the whole dynamic of the room. By adding the focal point of a burning fire, and add the warm and cozy element of a beautiful fireplace insert you are not only creating space that is enjoyable to be in, you are also more efficiently heating your home.

Right now at West Sport in Sudbury, you can receive $300 off any HearthStone Fireplace Insert. And before Labor Day or the beginning of September is the right time to buy: less wait. Contact us for more information on our HearthStone Special. And, you can also receive a tax rebate on qualifying stoves and inserts.

Interested in what the Farmer’s Almanac says for the upcoming winter? Here it is:

For 2013–2014, we are forecasting a winter that will experience below average temperatures. A large area of below-normal temperatures will predominate through New England. Only the Far West and the Southeast will have a semblance of winter temperatures averaging close to normal.

Precipitation-wise, Southern New England, Southeast New York, New Jersey, and down through the Mid-Atlantic region will be seeing copious rains and/or snows.

Significant snowfalls are forecast for parts of every zone. Over the Northeast states, we are “red-flagging” the first ten days of February for possible heavy winter weather. We wish to stress that this particular part of the winter season will be particularly volatile and especially turbulent.

And mid-March could bring a wave of storminess stretching almost from coast to coast, bringing a wide variety of precipitation types as well as strong and gusty winds.
 

Great news for skiers, not so great for home heating. Come on in and take a look at beautiful Hearthstone Fireplace inserts and stoves, designed with all styles of home decor in mind.
