Why Fireplace Inserts?

Why are fireplace inserts such a popular option for homeowners throughout Montgomery County?

  • They’re known for their efficiency. If you’re looking to get more heat from your fireplace, switching to an insert is one way to do it. Essentially, the insert more effectively traps the heat, so that it stays in your home, rather than escapes up the chimney.
  • It’s an easy way to switch fuels. Sick of the maintenance involved with wood? Invest in a gas insert to easily switch up fuel types. You’ll still have the great aesthetic of your current fireplace, only without all of the work involved.
  • They save you money. Because so much more heat is pouring back into your space, you can definitely turn your thermostat down and save money on monthly heating bills.
  • They enhance your ambiance. If your current fireplace setup is outdated, drab, or just not your taste, an insert can help to improve the look of it significantly. There are many design and style options on today’s market, so you’re sure to find something to love, no problem.
  • They’re an affordable update. Inserts are relatively affordable, especially when you consider the cost of rebuilding an entirely new fireplace. If you’re looking to upgrade without breaking the bank, this is a great route.

What’s the Difference Between a Stove & an Insert?

So, inserts are clearly a great option, but that doesn’t mean you need to automatically rule out other heating appliances that might be an equally good fit. We sell inserts and stoves, and both have unique advantages based on your setup and what it is that you’re looking for. Let’s go over each.

What Is a Freestanding Stove?

A stove is a heating appliance that produces localized heat for a room or area of your home. They are typically standalone units that can be placed in different areas of a room, and they don’t require complex installation, like built-in heating systems. Stoves can have different primary heating sources that impact how well it works and how efficient it is.

What are the benefits of a stove?

There are many reasons why stoves are preferred heating appliances. They offer homeowners a lot of flexibility, and they won’t disappoint in terms of heat output either. Some of the biggest advantages of stoves are:

  • They’re better for the environment. Some stoves are designed with the environment in mind. There are quite a few stoves that produce less emissions. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has certified wood stoves that they’ve tested for lower emission output and carbon monoxide production.
  • They can help you cut back on expenses. Utility bills can add up with fees, surcharges, and inflation. Installing a stove can give you more independence from energy companies by reducing your energy consumption and markedly decreasing your out-of-pocket expenses – without compromising on heat.
  • They offer a cleaner burn. Current heating stoves have improved combustion technology and better ventilation systems, which produce cleaner burning and reduced particulate emissions compared to older stoves and traditional masonry fireplaces.
  • They don’t require a chimney. If you don’t have a chimney already in place, these are a great choice, as they can be vented through a nearby wall or ceiling instead.
  • They have placement flexibility. Since they don’t require an existing chimney and don’t have to be built into your home, stoves offer a lot more placement flexibility than a traditional fireplace or a fireplace insert. If your space is small or awkward, adding a stove shouldn’t be a problem.

What Is a Fireplace Insert?

A fireplace insert is a self-contained heating unit that is installed into an existing masonry or pre-built fireplace. An insert should only be used in a fireplace that is capable of exterior ventilation. Inserts are usually made out of steel or cast iron and insulated by glass and other fireproof materials.

What are the benefits of an insert?

  • They’re a much more efficient option. One of the most consistent complaints about traditional fireplaces is their inefficiency as a lot of heat can escape through the chimney. In addition, brick doesn’t naturally keep heat in, so you’ll often find yourself burning fires longer and at higher temperatures – without feeling as much of the benefits in the process.
  • They send more heat into your space. Inserts create a closed combustion system that directs heat toward its intended source. Cast iron and steel trap heat, and many inserts feature a blower that pumps warmth back into your living area instead of pulling it out like a fireplace does.
  • They make fuel conversions easier. If you have a wood-burning system, but you’re wanting to switch to gas, simply add a gas insert to your existing setup. This is one of the least invasive ways to upgrade to a more efficient and convenient heat source.
  • They keep your aesthetic the same. If you like the way your current system looks, but just want more efficiency, inserts offer a way to boost heat output without altering the current ambiance you’re going for.
