What Is a Fireplace Insert?

Fireplace inserts are factory-built units that come ready to be installed in the firebox of a traditional masonry fireplace. Basically, think of them as fireplaces in a box.

But also think of them as efficient, gorgeous amenities that will instantly bring beauty, elegance and performance to any room or home.

Masonry Fireplaces vs. Fireplace Inserts

Here are a few comparisons.

  • Masonry fireplaces are open and can easily blow smoke and carbon monoxide into your home. However, fireplace inserts are closed systems, dramatically reducing backdrafts and the escape of toxic gases.
  • Masonry fireplaces produce little heat. Gas and wood inserts produce far more heat than any masonry fireplace ever built. Even electric inserts outperform them.
  • Masonry fireplaces present stunning firebox visuals. So do all styles of fireplace inserts.
  • Masonry fireplaces require quite a bit of professional cleaning. Gas fireplace inserts are ultra-clean and require little maintenance and upkeep. Electric inserts require no maintenance.
  • Masonry fireplaces eat up the logs. Wood fireplace inserts burn logs with high efficiency, giving you much more bang for your firewood buck.

Wood Fireplace Inserts

Today’s wood inserts are built strong and safe with heavy-duty materials and strict EPA compliance. They burn cleaner, run safer and look every bit as charming as any masonry fireplace.

When having a new wood insert installed, there will be no need for construction or home modifications. You’ll select a size that’s just right for your existing fireplace, and we’ll do the rest.

Gas Fireplace Inserts

If you’re looking for beauty and simplicity, go with a new gas fireplace insert. There’s no buying, hauling, storing or loading firewood.

You won’t be struggling to get fires going. You won’t have to worry about leaving the house with logs still smoldering. Nothing is as easy as gas.

Making it even easier, a simple switch or remote gets fires going instantly and extinguishes them just as quickly.

You have total control over how much heat is produced and the level of the flames.

Electric Fireplace Inserts

If you’re thinking of an electric insert as little more than a glorified space heater, think again. Today’s electric models are beautifully designed with the same structural appointments as the other types of inserts.

If the ultimate in both beauty and simplicity is your goal, you can’t go wrong with a lovely electric fireplace insert.
