What is a Fireplace Insert?
Fireplace Inserts are specially designed to fit into pre-existing Masonry Fireplaces to increase heat output, reduce pollutant output, and increase heat efficiency. They can also drastically change the appearance of your fireplace and bring a modern element to your home.
How does a fireplace insert increase efficiency?
Fireplace Inserts have a firebox that is surrounded by a steel shell. Air from inside your home flows into the shell and radiant heat warms the air, which is then redistributed back into your home. This prevents the majority of the heat from escaping into the masonry structure, and therefore escaping your home.
How does a fireplace insert change the appearance of the fireplace?
The area between the opening of the fireplace and the insert shell is covered with a faceplate. These faceplates can be very decorative and can make your fireplace look better and add a modern element to your home. You can choose from a variety of faceplates to best match your room.
Which is the right insert for you?
If you want to utilize natural or propane gas, you can choose from a B-Vent Insert, Direct Vent Insert, or Vent Free Insert. If wood is readily available, you may want to consider a Wood Burning Insert. If neither gas nor wood are viable options, Pellets and Pellet Inserts are great, efficient ways to heat your home.

Pellet Burning Inserts
These days, energy costs are rising and the search for more efficient fuel sources has become more and more important. Pellets are made from sawmill byproducts and are comprised of compressed sawdust. Installing a pellet insert in your existing Wood Burning Fireplace can be a great way to improve efficiency and emit fewer pollutants into the air. It's never a bad idea to burn recycled fuel products instead of non-renewable resources!
Wood Burning Inserts
If you already have a wood burning fireplace, you might be spending more money than you need to achieve the same heat output as a gas fireplace. You can do a lot for the environment by using a Wood Burning Insert to reduce pollutant emissions. Installing an EPA-Certified Wood Burning Insert will ensure that your fireplace will run more efficiently and burn cleaner than your old configuration. Perhaps your old fireplace could use a facelift? Wood Burning Inserts come in a variety of shapes, styles, and appearances so it's easy to find the right insert for your home.
