Fireplace Inserts

See all fireplaces

When you’re considering whether or not to install fireplace inserts, it helps to first fully understand what they are. A fireplace insert is similar to if you modified a wood stove to fit inside a masonry fireplace. It is a firebox encased by a steel shell and has insulated glass to trap the heat. Some have a blower to push warm air into the room through vents.

With fireplace inserts, simply push a button, and the flames start right up. Heck, some of them can even be turned on by remote control. Inserts boost fuel efficiency and increase how much heat is put out. Not to mention adding a beautiful design element to any room.
