We said, “Order a new wood insert today.” What exactly is a wood insert, and why would anyone want one for their home?

According to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association, or HPBA, “Fireplace inserts are heating units that retrofit into an existing fireplace (masonry or factory-built). They burn wood, gas or wood pellets and offer superior efficiency. Fireplace inserts utilize the existing chimney, through a flue liner or other necessary modification, for venting. Vent-free fireplace inserts require no chimney or flue modification. Most have blowers to circulate the heat. Inserts are used to convert an existing fireplace into an efficient, heat producing zone heater.

So why would someone want a wood fireplace insert?

Northeastern Fireplace & Design has many satisfied customers who have chosen to purchase and use a wood insert. We’re happy to share their experience and our lessons learned.

First, a wood fireplace insert is almost certain to increase heat-producing efficiency. Wood-burning fireplace inserts employ the latest energy-efficient technologies. As a result, installing one in an old fireplace is almost sure to yield better results in terms of heat output and environment stewardship. It’s a smart retrofit choice that maximizes performance and respects the planet. Many models yield 10 hours of burn time, some even more.

Another reason is aesthetics and beauty. The vast variety of styles of wood-burning inserts allows homeowners to enhance or completely alter their home décor. You can create a distinctive and clean look that matches the rest of your home or refresh a tired look. The possibilities are endless, and it can start with a wood-burning fireplace or stove insert. Just picture a soapstone and cast iron wood-burning insert that anchors the room with a vision of beauty and power.

A third reason is convenience. For example, one model wood-burning insert has a large door with a glass window and air wash system. The insert has a cast grate, ash tray and ash pan. The ash pan is operated via the stove door, thus making the insert easy to use and clean. The easy cleaning is a convenient bonus for you.
