Joseph Coupal - Thursday, October 18, 2012

You live in a sleek and modern home. Maybe your contemporary room needs a little warmth and coziness. You’d like to create a more efficient fireplace by adding a fireplace insert to your home, but you believe the designs are more rustic and won’t match your decor. Think again.

These fireplace inserts are perfect for modern homes. The Quadrafire gas fireplace insert adds ambiance to any room, they also accentuate the rooms’ décor.  Contemporary fireplace insert designs are perfect for spacious homes, apartments, and condos.

Fireplace Inserts Are a Perfect Option for Homeowners

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 19, 2011

Keep your home warm when it is cold outside.

In many houses, the problem is your traditional open-masonry fireplaces. They are not very efficient. While they burn, open fireplaces can send as much as 300 cubic feet of heated indoor air to the outside. That’s 18,000 cubic feet of heated air lost per hour.

As the warm air leaves, cold air from windows, doors and other areas is drawn to the fireplace. This cools the house and forces the furnace to work harder to heat your entire home.

Fortunately, you can enjoy a fire, and your fireplace without high heating bills and a drafty house.

An Upgrade
Fireplace inserts fit directly into the opening of existing masonry-built fireplaces and offer efficient heating, style and money-savings. Fireplace inserts come in numerous designs and fuel types.

When evaluating gas fireplace inserts, look at Direct Vent technology. Gas inserts have sealed fireboxes and venting that sends 100% of exhaust outside for clean, safe indoor air quality.

One wood burning fireplace inserts blend clean, eco-friendly heating with beautiful styling. A robust BTU heating capacity can heat up to 2000 square feet and burn for 8, 10 or 12 hours, depending on the insert you buy. Best of all, they heat your home during power outages.

Homeowners are seeking more and more ways to increase their home value. Inserts can lower heating costs and revive interior designs.

Many wood burning fireplace inserts are EPA certified. These appliances save money and meet stringent environmental standards. Pellet stove inserts are also known for extremely clean and efficient operation.

The Perfect Place to Buy a Fireplace Insert

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, December 15, 2011

A fireplace insert is a great addition to your home. But did you know that where you buy the fireplace insert is as important as which one you buy.

You need to buy a fireplace insert from a retailer who is educated and informed, but who is also interested in helping you buy the best insert for your home and your lifestyle. In some cases, a wood burning fireplace insert is perfect for you, and they are beautiful. If you want to cut your heating bills, you like a wood fire, and you like the cozy warmth, wood is for you.

But there are scenarios where a gas insert may be more reasonable and practical. Perhaps you don’t often use your fireplace, or only want to use it for ambiance; maybe you don’t want to buy, cut or stack wood; maybe you don’t want to have to light a fire, you just want to turn one on with a switch.

Pellet stove inserts are great for those who want a real fire but without the hauling of wood. Pellets are easy to store and easy to transport. Another benefit- pellet insert s also will cut down on your heating bills.

However, there is something else you need to consider. The wood stove retailer from where you buy your insert will also become you service and supplies location. So be sure that you purchase an insert from a reputable business that has direct and regular communication to the manufacturers.
