Six Reasons To Invest In A Wood-Burning Insert

At Beach Stove & Fireplace, we are your fireplace solution. As we near burning season, it’s time to start thinking about your winter fireplace, and what you want from it. Whether you are looking for more heat, an eco-friendly option, or just a new fireplace, we have a fireplace insert that will surely satisfy your needs. 

Benefits of a wood burning insert

wood burning insert A wood-burning insert offers all the benefits and aesthetics of a traditional fireplace with less waste and more heat. An insert is basically a closed unit like a wood-burning stove, but it is retrofitted into the existing masonry fireplace. Inserts come in a variety of styles, from traditional to contemporary. They can revitalize a rundown fireplace with less cost and hassle than a fireplace rebuild. We have many reasons to persuade you to change to a fireplace insert, but we have six reasons here to help you consider an insert.

  1. Your fireplace is a waste. Traditional open wood-burning fireplace is not an efficient heat source. They use more wood to reach and maintain a decent temperature, and up to 75 percent of the heat is lost up the chimney.
  2. Inserts are eco-friendly. Because inserts are more efficient, the fuel burns more completely, which creates less emissions in the environment. This also means no pollution in your home because inserts are a closed unit. Inserts also use less wood, so it is better for the environment and your wallet.
  3. You want more supplemental heat. If you are tired of running your central heat system all winter, an insert is a great way to go. They produce more heat than an open fireplace, and they can bring down heating costs, while using a renewable resource -wood.
  4. Your fireplace is damaged, but sturdy. If your firebox is damaged, you can install an insert to avoid a complete rebuild. This saves you money, and you will also end up saving money in fuel, utilities, and maintenance.
  5. You’re looking to sell, but don’t want to rebuild. Home buyers love fireplaces! An insert, properly installed, and chosen to complement the home is desired by prospective home buyers. Make sure you choose a professional for installation and have the system inspected.
  6. You want a REAL, log fire. You can revitalize a tired or damaged fireplace by installing a gas log set. Many homeowners prefer the real, log fire over a fake ceramic log. Your insert will burn real logs, and the beautiful flame is visible through the glass doors.
