What is a Fireplace Inserts?

A fireplace insert is a type of heating equipment that is designed to be inserted inside an existing fireplace. It is essentially a self-contained firebox that is surrounded by a steel or cast iron shell, which is then inserted into the existing masonry or pre-fabricated fireplace. Inserts can burn wood, gas, or pellets and are a popular way to make an existing fireplace more efficient and functional.

Traditional fireplaces are not very efficient at heating a place, as they draw in cold air from the your inner home space and send hot air up the chimney. By contrast, a insert is designed to burn fuel more efficiently and to radiate heat directly into the room, providing more warmth with less waste.

To prepare for the cleaning process, our technician will place a protective cover in front of your fireplace and use a heavy-duty vacuum to clean up all dirt and debris, including soot and creosote buildup on the bricks. The technician will then use brushes and sturdy rods to eliminate any remaining creosote and complete the sweep. The entire cleaning process typically takes less than two hours, and we guarantee that there will be no mess left behind, ensuring a hassle-free experience for our customers.

What is a Fireplace Insert?

A fireplace insert is a self-contained appliance that can be fitted into an existing wood fireplace, and it is essential that a professional install it. You can fuel the insert using gas, wood pellets, wood or electricity with a simple button touch. The installation of a fireplace insert is an ideal solution if you want to eliminate soot, ashes and odor that come with a traditional wood-burning fireplace. Moreover, it improves the efficiency of your fireplace by reducing the chimney outlet, which results in containing and radiating heat back into the room. This is unlike traditional fireplaces, where the majority of the heat escapes up the chimney flue.

Gas Insert

To install a gas insert, a gas line must be run to the fireplace and proper ventilation must be provided. If natural gas service is not available, a liquid propane (LP) tank can be installed to fuel the fireplace.
