As its name suggests, a fireplace insert, such as a pellet stove insert or a wood fireplace insert, can be
“inserted” into an existing fireplace space. Taking the place of your existing fireplace, the fireplace insert fills
the gap, offering a timely, economical solution to fireplace renovation or replacement.
Fireplace Inserts: The Simple Way to Upgrade Your Existing Fireplace
Fireplaces are among the top features homeowners crave. Though older masonry fireplaces still seen in many homes
offer comfort and ambiance, they can also be a source of heat loss, allowing up to 80% of furnace-heated air to
escape through the chimney when they are not in use. With a fireplace inert, however, you can transform this
disadvantage into an opportunity.
Why Choose a Fireplace Insert?
For dwellings with an existing fireplace or chimney in good working condition, a professionally installed fireplace
insert can transform your fireplace, eliminating drafts and keeping heat in the room and away from masonry to provide
a highly efficient source of heat. Better still, your older wood burning fireplace can even be retrofitted to an
electric, gas fireplace, or pellet insert, better suited to your heating needs.
