Revamp Your Tired Fireplace with a New Insert
There’s nothing more relaxing than the warmth of a fireplace during a cold winter night. It offers the much-needed heat to beat the freezing temperatures. But if your fireplace has seen better days, it’s time to give it life with a new insert.
Fireplace inserts provide the best of both worlds: They restore an old, tired fireplace into a charming focal point. And they minimize heat loss boosting overall heating efficiency. These self-contained heating appliances are EPA-certified and are constructed with cast iron or steel. And they are designed to be inserted into your existing fireplace. It’s a more affordable way to give your fireplace a facelift without the expense of a major restoration.
Reduce Heating Costs
Unlike a traditional fireplace that loses up to 85% of the heat through the chimney, energy-efficient inserts retain up to 80% of the heat, depending on the model and fuel. This higher heating efficiency keeps your space warmer, for longer periods of time using 1/3 of the fuel. Reduced fuel usage means lower heating costs. Fireplace inserts are available in your choice of fuel including wood, pellet, gas and electric. Homeowners can also use inserts to convert their fireplace from one fuel source to another.
EPA-certified fireplace inserts produce less smoke and pollution than a traditional fireplace. Traditional fireplaces produce an average 40g of smoke per hour. An insert produces just 4.5g of smoke per hour or less. This is because the combustion process is contained in a sealed compartment. The significant reduction in smoke and pollution also reduces much of the cleaning and maintenance associated with a traditional fireplace. So, if you’re looking for an eco-friendly alternative to heating your home, a fireplace insert is the way to go.
Remodel Your Fireplace
Remodeling an old, run-down masonry fireplace can be time consuming and expensive. Since fireplace inserts are designed to fit inside an existing fireplace, installation is quick and easy. Also, vent-free inserts don’t require a chimney or vent and can be a good option in homes without a working chimney.
