Ahhhh…Winter. The word itself carries nostalgia and warm memories.
Crisp, cool air breezily carrying the scents emerging from neighbors’ chimneys and kitchen windows as we go walking on our daily stroll around the neighborhood…
Friends sitting around the warm hearth of a wood stove, drinking wine and cider and talking about days past and those ahead…
Looking out over the morning frost that covers the valley’s vineyards while steam rises up from your morning cup of coffee…
These are some of the enjoyable scenes that play out during Winter, and Friedman’s Home Improvement has additional ideas that will make this Winter season even more enjoyable.
Stay warm this Winter with a new wood stove from Friedman’s. Wood stoves are the grandfather of alternative heating. They perform without electricity, provide light through the glass door, and last many years with minimal maintenance. Wood stoves are safe, environmentally-friendly, clean, and very efficient at heating your home. They are available on either legs or on a pedestal, and most come with an ash pan included.
Did you know that wood stoves are the cleanest burning source of heat? Today’s wood stoves have emissions as low as .87 grams per hour. Most gases and creosote are burned and utilized to give off more heat. Also, the wood stove engineering of today greatly supersedes stoves designed even 10 years ago. Wood stoves beat propane, natural gas, coal, and electricity in both performance and by keeping our air clean.
And speaking of clean air in Winter, the Spare The Air program notifies Bay Area residents when particulate matter levels are anticipated to be unhealthy. The Winter Spare The Air program begins November 1, 2010, and is crucial to the health and well being of everyone. Your wood stove can help the air and environment immediately within your house, around your house, and around your neighborhood.
With cleaner air, you’ll have an easier time smelling those fires in the fireplaces and pumpkin pies in the oven when you go for your walk around the block.
When you come visit any of our Friedman’s stores in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, or Ukiah, ask any of our friendly staff to help find the right wood stove for you. Friedman’s Home Improvement, where you’ll get the lowest price and local advice.
