A Fireplace Insert Can Transform Your Home

Many people struggle with inefficient masonry fireplaces that are too drafty and never produce enough heat. Other people love their fireplaces but really wish they could save money on fuel. Still others aren’t happy with a wood-burning fireplace and want to switch to gas.

A new fireplace insert can be the solution in all of these cases. Hudson Valley Chimney of Poughkeepsie, NY, would like to share a few important points about fireplace inserts and the many benefits they can bring you.

Fireplace inserts 101

A fireplace insert is a pre-built appliance designed to fit into the firebox of an existing masonry fireplace. Essentially, the insert replaces the original fireplace.

Gas and wood fireplace inserts are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, which makes it easy for your fireplace technician to help you choose one that’s just right for your home.

Why we love fireplace inserts

Fireplace inserts continue to grow in popularity as more and more people understand the benefits they bring. Here are six of those benefits.

More heat

If you want more heat from your masonry fireplace, a fireplace insert is how you do it. These appliances retain up to 85% of the heat they produce and make it available to your home.

By comparison, traditional masonry fireplaces hold on to as little as 10% of their heat, sending the rest right up the chimney.

Fuel efficiency

Thanks to advanced burn technologies and designs, modern inserts use fuel with a high degree of efficiency. With either a gas or wood-burning insert, you’ll be pleased to find that you need less fuel for stunning results.

Gorgeous visuals

Whether you prefer a contemporary or traditional look, there’s a fireplace insert that’s just right to perfectly match your home’s décor. A wide range of finishes, colors and other aesthetics are available from the leading manufacturers in the fireplace industry.

Environmentally friendly

With adherence to strict EPA standards, today’s fireplace inserts produce far fewer emissions than the typical “open” masonry fireplace. In fact, for many wood insert models, emissions are nearly zero. If you want to make a minimal “environmental footprint,” go with a fireplace insert.

Fuel options

Inserts can run on either gas, wood or pellets. Gas is ultra-convenient; wood is ultra-traditional; pellets are somewhere in between. Whatever type of fuel fits your lifestyle best, you’ll find it in a new fireplace insert.

No remodeling necessary

Because a fireplace insert goes in your existing firebox, there’s no need to do any kind of remodeling to your home in preparation for installation. Additionally, the insert will vent up through your existing chimney, so you won’t need to build one.
