Where To Buy Fireplace Inserts Near Me

Click Here >>>

If you are interested in changing the look of your fireplace but do not want to start over from scratch, a fireplace insert may be a good option for you. Fireplace inserts are great for people who have an open masonry wood burning fireplace and want to upgrade to a gas or continue to burn wood with much greater heating efficiency. Also, the installation of an insert is much simpler than installing a brand new unit and venting system.

So many people choose this option when they want a low maintenance fireplace or want to switch to models that are better at providing heat than the traditional wood burning fireplace. So, if you are looking for an affordable, high efficiency option, check out our selection of fireplace inserts and see which one is right for you. See our Fireplace Insert Buyers Guide for more info.

The higher the wattage on an electric fireplace insert, the more high-efficiency the heating element will be. Inserts with high heating efficiency will help heat up your house quickly and can better simulate a real fire. Many inserts come with a thermostat so you can better keep track of the temperature.

Most electric fireplace inserts come in either wall-mounted or recessed variations. Recessed inserts are set slightly into the wall and are designed to fill existing fireplaces. Wall-mounted inserts attach directly to the wall and can be placed anywhere in your home where there is space and a nearby outlet. These inserts are typically made from stainless steel or other heavy-duty materials.

Most fireplace inserts and a professional installation cost about $2,000 to $4,000, depending on the state of your existing chimney and the model you select. Some electric models cost significantly less, but they offer less heat output (measured typically in btus) than wood and gas fireplace inserts.

Direct vent inserts are designed with steel glass fronts and use a co-linear vent system that runs inside an existing chimney. Pellet fireplace inserts, meanwhile, replace logs with small wood pellets that burn quickly and are easy to maintain.

Fireplace inserts convert an existing inefficient open-hearth wood-burning fireplace into an attractive and efficient zone heating system that allows you to control your comfort. These inserts are engineered to get the most heat out of your fuel while providing the warmth and enjoyment that comes from watching a fire.

There are three main types to consider: wood-burning fireplace inserts, direct vent gas fireplace inserts and pellet fireplace inserts. They differ on fuel type, features, ease of operation and energy efficiency. You will find a wide range of sizes and design styles depending on the type you choose.

Pellet fireplace inserts combine the benefits of high-efficiency wood burning with the convenience of a gas appliance. Wood logs are replaced with small hardwood pellets that are commonly available in 40-pound bags. Pellet inserts work by storing the pellets in a hopper where an electric auger delivers them to a burn chamber, as needed. A blower draws in air for combustion and then forces the exhaust fumes outside using a Type L or Type PL pellet vent liner system. Operate manually or add a thermostat control option for the ultimate in comfort and control.
