Some of the most frequently asked questions we get in the showroom are what a fireplace insert is, and how it differs from a regular fireplace.
A traditional fireplace is usually constructed of brick and is built into the structure of your home. There may be a grate, screen or glass that covers the opening and keeps the cool air out when not in use.
As of the 1980s, a new product began to gain popularity—the fireplace insert. It was created to improve the efficiency of older, existing fireplaces.
A fireplace insert is essentially a fireproof box that is designed to fit into a masonry fireplace. The insert can increase overall efficiency by creating a closed combustion system, and some models even have an integrated blower that will push hot air into the space.
There are a number of heat source options when it comes to installing a fireplace insert. Some people choose to keep their wood fuel, while others prefer to switch to pellets or natural gas. The right choice for your home will depend on a number of factors and our dedicated staff will work with you to select the right product to fit your needs.
