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.
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.
