Pellet Fireplace Inserts
Have you been looking for an alternative to your current open masonry fireplace? Does it seem to never bring you enough heat? Are you tired of the mess and hassle of fueling and cleaning up after your masonry fireplace?
Your solution may be a powerful pellet fireplace insert. Here’s how inserts work.
Fireplace Inserts 101
Inserts are factory-built in various sizes to fit right into the firebox of your existing masonry fireplace. They’re complete systems that are heavily insulated for safety and come in many attractive design styles.
Today’s inserts are made by some of the most respected names in the hearth industry such as Regency, Osburn, Ravelli and True North.
Pellet Insert Heating vs. Wood in a Traditional Fireplace
As beautiful as some masonry fireplaces are, they run on an open system that does a poor job of retaining the heat they produce. Pellet inserts run on a closed system, which preserves a high percentage of the heat it produces and makes it available to your room rather than going up the chimney.
Pellet fireplace inserts are available with a range of BTU outputs and are ideal for bringing consistent heat to both larger and smaller rooms.
Your wood fireplace requires that you haul and store logs and then bring them into the house and feed them regularly into the firebox. A lot of time is involved, and there’s the mess of wood chips, bark shavings and possibly small insects to contend with.
Pellets are sold in bags, and you feed the fuel into a hopper (container) that automatically adds the pellets to the fire at a prescribed rate. This is a very clean and simple operation with very little extra work on your part. Our techs at Fire N’ Stone can even clean your pellet stove so you don’t have to.
Additionally, you can add a handheld or wall thermostat so you can effortlessly control the level of heat in your room.
Transform Your Fireplace
A new pellet-burning fireplace insert is not only a powerful heat producer that’s easy to operate and maintain, but it’s also an elegant amenity that will enhance the beauty of any room.
During the cold season, your insert will offer magnificent firebox views of leaping flames; in the off-season, your insert will transform your fireplace into a fine centerpiece that adds luxury and decorative flair to your home.
