Wood Burning Inserts
Did you know that a masonry wood fireplace only has a heating efficiency of up to 10 percent? That means a fireplace will lose more energy than it generates on a cold day in Milton, NY, and the Hudson Valley area. However, upgrading your inefficient masonry wood-burning fireplace with an insert can increase its efficiency by 70 percent! It's the best of both worlds: a traditional wood fire experience with ample heat to keep your living area warm and cozy all day without the pollution and frequent cleaning.
A Wood Insert Offers Many Advantages in Hudson Valley, NY
Wood fireplace inserts are a great way to add warmth and ambiance to any indoor or outdoor living area. They are also more efficient than traditional fireplaces, saving you money on your heating bills. It's like having an old-fashioned campfire experience in your home without the frequent maintenance and cleaning a conventional wood fireplace requires.
Increased heating efficiency
Wood fireplace inserts are also much more energy efficient than that old masonry fireplace in your living room. This is because inserts have a closed combustion chamber, which retains the heat, preventing it from escaping up the chimney. As a result, some wood fireplace inserts are as much as 80% efficient. So, you can keep your home warm and comfortable using up to 30% less wood, which saves money on heating costs.
Cleaner and more environmentally friendly
Wood fireplace inserts also burn cleaner than their traditional counterparts. That's because inserts burn hotter, resulting in more complete combustion. As a result, it radiates more heat while any pollutants exit through your existing chimney. It will also improve indoor air quality in your home.
Higher heat output
Since a wood fireplace insert produces significantly more heat than a traditional fireplace, it can be used as a primary or supplementary heat source in the winter. They are more affordable too. So, you can install a fireplace insert in every room for a cost-effective zone heating system.
Longer fire-burning experience
Wood fireplace inserts also have longer burn times than traditional fireplaces. As a result, you will spend more time enjoying a pleasant wood fire without constantly adding wood logs. In addition, many inserts have convenient features such as adjustable thermostats, fan blower motors, and remote operation.
