Traditional fireplaces burn fuel, they have an open hearth and have a chimney flue system. Todays newer fireplace inserts are small units that fit into an existing fireplace space. Fireplace inserts can be electric, gas, wood, or pellet and are often made from steel or cast iron. Fireplace inserts are more like a stove as they enclose the flames in a metal box which creates a closed combustion system
Why choose fireplace inserts?
- Inserts are cleaner and easier to maintain than a traditional open fireplace
- Inserts are cheaper to install than open hearth fireplaces
- You can place the insert into your existing fireplace if you don’t really use it and would like to make it useable and cleaner and more efficient
- They are better at creating heat and can produce up to five times as much heat than older fireplaces
- You can still enjoy the look and feel of your old fireplace
