wood burning insert installation in Keene NHWide open masonry fireplaces are traditions in many older homes. For decades, people ran these fireplaces because of their beauty and atmosphere. Unfortunately, masonry fireplaces have never done a great job in heating a home. All that can change with today’s new wood-burning fireplace inserts.

How Wood-Burning Inserts Operate

A fireplace insert is a factory-made unit that’s like a self-contained fireplace that fits into the opening of an existing masonry fireplace. Inserts are ultra-fashionable and fully functional as serious heating appliances. Installation is simple as they have their own intake/exhaust vent system that goes right up your existing chimney. There’s no need for any structural modifications to your home.

An efficient closed-combustion system is created through the tight seal of glass doors, allowing the insert to produce large amounts of heat that is sent to the home through a blower system or radiating grills.

High Heat from Your New Wood Insert

Heating appliances are given heat-efficiency ratings to tell the consumer how much of the total heat the unit produces actually becomes heat within a room. With traditional masonry fireplaces, 20% and often less of their heat goes into the home, with the rest floating up the chimney. This fireplace type isn’t a good choice to heat your home.

With wood-burning fireplace inserts from top makers such as Regency and Blaze King, you’ll enjoy heat efficiency ratings of 85% and higher. So not only do you get the visual aesthetics that make fireplaces one of the most sought-after items in a home, you also get comforting heat that will warm you and your family during the coldest New Hampshire winters.

Special Features Found in Today’s Wood-Burning Fireplace Inserts

Black Moose recommends and installs fireplace inserts by Regency and Blaze King, two of the undisputed leaders in home heating technology. Here are some great features among the many models and styles available.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
