What is a Wood Burning Insert?

Like with other types of fireplace inserts, a wood-burning insert fits into an existing fireplace. The insert has the function of a wood-burning stove with real wood placed inside the insert to produce heat.

Wood inserts give an alternative to upgrade or renovate a current fireplace. If you like the style and function of a wood-burning fireplace, consider a wood-burning insert.

How Do Wood Burning Fireplace Inserts Work?

Wood-burning fireplace inserts work similarly to a wood stove. The insert box fits inside an existing fireplace and includes a glass door. Like with a wood stove, the insert uses wood as fuel to create heat.

Logs go inside the unit and the smoke and fumes exit through a ventilation system. Wood inserts distribute heat more consistently into the home and reduce drafts.

For homeowners that want the look and feel of a traditional fireplace, wood inserts offer an excellent option with many benefits.

What are the Symptoms of Chimney Problems?

Yes! A wood-burning insert doesn’t require as much wood as a traditional fireplace. The logs burn slower and can even last up to eight hours. Plus, inserts lose less heat which allows more heat to go into the home.

Not only do you save money on the wood supply, but you also maintain a more consistent temperature inside your home. Overall, wood inserts save money when compared to traditional wood fireplaces.

What is the Purpose of a Fireplace Insert?

Regardless of the type, the primary purpose of a fireplace insert is to update an existing fireplace. Once you decide to invest in a fireplace insert, we can help you choose the best option for your home and needs.

For example, if you primarily want the appearance of a fire without the heat production, an electric insert may work best. If you don’t want to deal with wood but want heat and real flames, a gas fireplace insert is a smart choice.
