If you have a classic wood-burning, open-hearth fireplace and chimney, adding a wood or gas insert is a great way to improve the efficiency of your existing fireplace. Traditional wood-burning fireplaces, while aesthetically pleasing, do not heat a room well because a damper allows smoke, gas and a significant amount of heat to escape through the chimney. With a wood or gas insert, you can expect more warmth and longer burner time. The choice ultimately comes down to the level of maintenance and the fuel-source you’d prefer.
There is nothing like tending to a crackling fire. But, when you’re losing most of the heat energy through your chimney’s damper, it becomes more work adding logs to the fire and less of a dependable heat source. Today’s advancements in wood insert technology can produce heat for up to 10 hours on one single load of wood. This means installing a wood-burning insert will provide an excellent heat source and help you conserve wood. Many of today’s wood inserts are EPA-certified, so they release minimal amounts of pollutants and use as much of the wood’s BTU energy as possible – all while reducing ash and clean-up. Upgrading to a wood-burning insert means you can continue to enjoy the ambiance of the crackling fire, save on energy costs and conserve your fuel source.
Gas inserts have grown in popularity because of the shear ease of flipping a switch or pressing a remote control to light a fire. Gas inserts are fueled by natural gas or liquid propane, so these options do not require wood. There is no need to tend a fire, nor is there any ash produced that requires clean-up. Depending on the type of gas fireplace insert you choose, installation will require a gas line and some possible electrical work. But don’t fret, Ed’s Woodshed can do that!
