New York Times Article Highlights the Proposed Ban on Wood-Burning Fireplaces in New York City

Great conversations about the future of fireplaces have arisen since New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio proposed a ban on new wood-burning fireplaces in New York City, and the recent New York Times article below is one of the best.

It highlights the polluting aspects of wood-burning fireplaces as socially irresponsible and incompatible with our society’s collective ‘green’ values, backed by real New Yorkers’ prioritization of quality of life over continued tradition and nostalgia.

What the article doesn’t touch on is the new alternative to wood or gas burning fireplaces. Most people aren’t familiar with alcohol as an alternative fuel source, and many that are have seen low quality (and high risk) products that don’t evoke the luxurious and heart-warming sensations of conventional fireplaces.

HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces is the only company to use a cartridge system of alcohol gel, which provides a beautiful, full flame just like that of a wood-burning fireplace, but without the smoke, ashes, or harmful emissions of wood. They are incredibly safe and it is the unique safety features of HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces that make them the only ventless fireplaces approved for use in New York City.

Designed and handcrafted in New York City, HearthCabinet Ventless Fireplaces come in a range of standard sizes and styles, but can also be completely custom-tailored in dimension and design.
