Wood Fireplace Inserts

Are you having trouble keeping your New Hampshire home warm and cozy with your masonry fireplace? Traditional masonry fireplaces can look great, but they’re not known as the greatest heat producers. There are solutions, however!

What Is a Wood Fireplace Insert?

A wood-burning insert, like its name implies, is a prebuilt heating appliance that is inserted right into the firebox of a masonry fireplace. It’s like a fireplace in a box that maintains the ambiance you’ve come to love with your existing fireplace while bringing you significantly more heat and burn-efficiency.

Why Inserts Are Superior Heating Units

Fireplace inserts operate with a closed system, unlike traditional masonry fireplaces, which run with an open system. For this reason, wood-burning inserts retain a large percentage of the heat they produce rather than sending it up the chimney.


Most open masonry fireplaces are negative efficiency and preserve none of the heat created by their logs as it escapes up the chimney as the fire wanes. The heat is gone – but you paid for it, so that’s not good. Wood fireplace inserts retain as much as 80% and more of their heat and send it to you in your home. That’s heat worth paying for.

Elegance and Beauty

Today’s leading insert manufacturers such as Osburn, Napoleon, Regency, True North and Ventis have created a variety of finishes, design details, colors and styles for their inserts, making it easy for you to instantly enhance your home’s décor.

This is why we say that if you love the look of your masonry fireplace, you’ll love it even more with a gorgeous new fireplace insert operating in it.

Real Wood Fires

Wood-burning fireplace inserts give you all the ambiance of real wood fires – from the crackling logs to the hypnotizing flames, and intense heat in the firebox. An added benefit is, your insert will keep on producing heat if local electric and gas utilities go down. No storm is too much for today’s powerful fireplace inserts.

Dedicated Vent System

Inserts require their own venting, which runs up your existing chimney through a liner. We install stainless steel chimney liners that are built to last and perform with ultimate safety and efficiency.
