FireCrystals Quickly Becoming Iconic in Green Homes

September 15, 2009

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ — Dubbed “the healthiest way to heat a home” and garnering a “four out of four” rating by the Degree Of Green(TM) website, FireCrystals(R) tempered glass replacement for burning wood or faux log fireplaces and fire pits are quickly becoming the centerpiece of green home and sustainable commercial building design. Entirely environmentally friendly, the sleek, sexy and economical glass crystals eliminate smoke emissions, soot and ash debris, and are made with 100% recycled glass.

FireCrystals(R) emerged eight years ago when the concept of tempered glass as a replacement for burning wood or fake logs was invented. When heated by natural gas or propane, the crystals reflect and provide the same heat source as burning wood in a fireplace or fire pit. Buyers may personally choose their own mix of colors, shapes, and sizes, purchase by the pound, and simply pour over the mechanics of the fireplace or fire-pit and instantly a room or outdoor patio is transformed. The expensive look is clean, it sparkles, and is good for the conscience. Bonus factor – the green product lasts a lifetime.

The simple switch to a green tempered-glass system is growing in homes and commercial buildings that may be environmentally cautious, may need to save money, or perhaps are forced to replace an existing wood-burning fireplace under a number of new county wood-burning bans. Doing such a change is highly economical, typically costing $100- $600 rather than completely replacing the unit running a bill as high as $6,000. The glass is safe, free of sharp edges, and the color indestructible. Upgrading to the contemporary look increases the monetary value of any estate and is incredibly easy to install. Co-owner Anne Stegall suggests using a clear crystal base or lava rock for the bottom layer and the colored gemstones for the visibly commanding topside. FireCrystals(R) can transform your fireplace or fire pit into a beautiful show-piece that will add style, warmth and value to any home.

FireCrystals(R) is a featured exhibitor at the International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market in Chicago September 21-24th at the Merchandise Mart, booth # 8-1021.
