While fireplaces are a coveted and beautiful feature of any home, older models can be extremely inefficient and problematic. A standard open-burning fireplace is one of the most inefficient methods of heating your house during the cold winter months since heat tends to escape up the chimney instead of staying in your home. Installing a fireplace insert will help you eliminate the heat loss while still enjoying the beauty and warmth of a burning fire.
Revive your old and rundown fireplace, and turn your hearth into an efficient and easy-to-operate appliance. Fireplace inserts are designed to be installed directly into most masonry & zero-clearance fireplaces. Essentially, an insert is a stove without legs that fits flush into an existing fireplace and heats your home without allowing the warm air to escape up the chimney. A pipe is used to vent by-products of combustion out of the home and decorative panels are used to cover up the rest of the fireplace opening. Inserts come in many shapes and sizes to fit into a number of differently shaped fireplaces.
Wood Burning Insert
Real wood burning fires are hard to beat, but when you use a wood burning fireplace insert, you can enjoy the smell, sound, and sight of a real fire without the inefficiency of an open fireplace. A wood-burning insert utilizes a re-burn system and is designed to help to increase efficiencies by up to 70% which is good news for any homeowner. These inserts can be made with cast iron, steel, or stone and can feature a number of different options and styles that will help the homeowner personalize their insert to meet their every need. Optional fans provide convective heat in addition to the radiant heat which can help reduce gas or oil heating bills.
If you want to convert your old wood burning fireplace into a convenient and easy-to-use heating appliance, consider a gas insert. These modern, safe, and efficient inserts offer convenient adjustable gas valves and variable speed fans so homeowners can easily control heat output. These units even come with a multi-function remote control so the fireplace insert can be controlled conveniently from anywhere in the room. Gas inserts are also great appliances for zone heating, so if you don’t want to waste money heating your whole home, only heat the most-used rooms and save on your heating bill. When properly installed and maintained, these inserts operate at efficiencies of 82+%. Stop by Burlington Fireplace & Heating to see our selection of gas fireplace inserts and get all of your questions answered by one of our insert experts.
Update your inefficient fireplace with an environmentally friendly heat source. Pellet inserts are easy to use and are great at producing heat while utilizing a fuel source that recycles waste and wood materials which would have ended up in a landfill. These inserts are also easy to use. Simply fill up the pellet storage bin (a.k.a. the hopper), adjust the easy-to-operate controls, then sit back and enjoy the warmth and atmosphere of a burning fire. The amount of heat a pellet insert produces depends on how fast you feed the pellets through the pot. Depending on the feed-rate, a pellet insert can burn for many hours without needing to be refilled.

Electric models are not as common the other types of inserts, but they are extremely convenient and easy-to-use. With the flick of a switch, an electric insert will provide a beautiful faux fire that can provide a relaxing and warm ambiance. There is no mess or maintenance to worry about and the realistic flames and modeled log sets with burning embers will still give homeowners the feel of a real-life fire. Electric inserts come in a range of styles and designs, so it doesn’t matter if you are looking for a traditional, rustic, or modern insert, you’re sure to find one that fits your requirements.
