What Is A Fireplace Insert?
A fireplace insert is a stove appliance that sits inside an existing fireplace. Often, the current wood-burning fireplace doesn’t produce heat efficiently. A wood-burning fireplace insert can increase heat production.
Gas fireplace inserts work well to avoid the mess of a wood-burning fireplace and eliminate the need to provide wood. Gas fireplace inserts provide heat and add style.
Electric fireplace inserts produce very little heat. However, homeowners select electric inserts primarily for the design appeal. The existing fireplace converts to match the style goals.
How Much Do Fireplace Inserts Cost?
Typically, the starting point for a fireplace insert is around $2,000. However, that price point varies greatly based on the type of insert, installation requirements, and other details.
For example, adding a new mantel or stonework adds to the cost, but may be the right option to transform the space. Also, the current condition of the existing fireplace impacts the cost.
We provide a custom quote for each project.
Do Fireplace Inserts Need Electricity?
In general, yes. Wood burning and gas fireplace inserts require electricity for the blower to work. Of course, electric fireplace inserts always require an electricity source.
During a power outage, a fireplace insert can continue to work. The blower will not operate without power. Yet, the fireplace insert should operate safely without the blower during a power outage.
Why Do I Need to Have A Hearth Appliance Professionally Installed?
We do not recommend DIY fireplace installation, even with inserts. Anytime you are dealing with gas lines and proper ventilation, accurate installation matters. Fireplace insert installation requires special training and tools.
The safe function of the fireplace is too important to do it yourself. You want a trusted expert on your side. At Goodrich Chimney, we have that expertise!
