Wood Burning Fireplace Inserts

Benefits Of Wood Burning Fireplace Inserts

Having a fireplace that is as efficient as it is beautiful is a very important consideration to keep in mind. Wood burning fireplace inserts can take an older, inefficient fireplace and turn it into a heat-producing unit that will help dramatically reduce those high heating bills.

What Is A Fireplace Insert?

Many homeowners get confused in knowing exactly just what is an insert for a fireplace. In basic terms, fireplace inserts are like a smaller fireplace that fits nicely into your old existing fireplace.

Also, it makes no difference what type of wood burning fireplace you now have, whether it is brick, stone or a unit built from a factory. The insert will begin to burn wood more efficiently and allow the heat to go out into the home instead of up the chimney.

That's the problem with older fireplaces, they are inefficient. In fact, most are only 10% efficient. That's a lot of energy that is just going up the chimney. A woodburning fireplace insert dramatically increases this rating many times over.

Types Of Fireplace Inserts

There are several kinds of inserts to choose from including:

  • Pellet

  • Wood Burning

  • Ventless

  • Direct Vent

  • B-Vent

Choosing the one that is the best for your home and your needs comes down to what you want to pay, and what type of fuel you will burn with.

Pellet fireplace inserts are regarded as the most efficient inserts available.

What Are The Benefits?

Certainly, the biggest benefit of installing wood burning fireplace inserts will be the increased energy efficiency, but there are several other benefits as well.

-Cleaner burning and reduced emissions

-Lower energy bills

-Easy to use and clean
