Issues with your Fireplace remote?

If you experience issues with your remote controls, we recommend trying the following:

•    The orientation of the remote matters (pointed up, sideways, or down). These wall mounted remotes perform best if it is positioned vertically (placed on a wall or on its edge). Wall remotes placed vertically on the wall perform better than when placed flat on a table.

•    Move the remote inside the room to a different location. Each room has unique radio “acoustics”. Some building materials will reflect the signal while other materials may absorb the signal. That is why you may find dead spots or zones that do not work within the expected range. Often by switching the location of the remote, its performance will improve noticeably. This process may require several attempts before a suitable location is found.

•    Make sure the remote is away from any radio emitter (RF signal). Radio emitters include computer routers, repeaters, wireless phone transmitters, etc. Certain remotes improve when relocated away from radio emitters, especially when they are on a frequency similar to the remote (315mhz).

•    Place the remote closer to the appliance. This may sound like a silly request but the remote only has a range of approximately 10' to 20', depending upon room size and other factors mentioned above.


6 Reasons to Heat with Wood


Nothing beats the feeling of instant warmth when you step into the home of someone who heats with

wood. How many times have you heard someone say, “Wood heat just feels warmer”? And it’s true! It’s

a choice that can’t be beat!

1. It’s Efficient

The EPA has tightened the efficiency standards to the current 4.5 grams/hour with many

manufacturers far exceeding that. No more black smoke rolling out of the chimney. Now, with

catalytic technology, you barely notice there’s a fire.

2. It’s Off-Grid

Whether it’s a choice you make to live off grid or it’s the peace of mind knowing that you can heat

your home and cook – if necessary – during a prolonged power outage, you can reduce your

reliance on other sources of heat.

3. It’s Sustainable

What could be “greener” than using a fuel source that you can replenish yourself? Not only can it be

harvested locally, reducing transport costs, but if you have the land, you can harvest it yourself. And

plant more trees to ensure you have fuel for decades to come.

4. It’s Economic

Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, wood can be less costly than other sources of fuel. Especially if

you harvest, cut, split, and stack it yourself. Ask friends, family, or coworkers where to get wood. Or

drive around the countryside and you’re sure to see stacks of wood with a for sale sign.

5. It’s Rewarding

Let’s be honest, it’s work. But like all work, it’s rewarding. And for some, enjoyable! Since many

hands make light work, it’s an activity the whole family can enjoy!

6. It’s A Tax Break

The most recent legislation in the Inflation Reduction Act extended the available tax credit to 2032.

It’s a 30% credit, capped at $2000, and it covers the cost of the stove, chimney, stove pipe, hearth

pad, and installation. Just take your paid invoice and manufacturer’s certificate to you your tax

professional and they can handle the rest. Just remember, it’s a tax credit, not a rebate. You won’t

be getting money back. But if you typically pay in at tax time, you can reduce your tax liability down

to $0. In other words, the stove may qualify, but the individual may not. That’s where your tax

professional comes in.
