Wide 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.
