The main reason a homeowner might invest in a wood-burning insert or stove, rather than simply use a traditional fireplace, is because these modern set-ups are typically much more energy efficient. You won’t lose nearly as much heat out of your chimney, and your friends and family members will love how much cozier your living space now is.
Not only will you gain more heat, but you’ll likely save on your monthly bills, as well! Meanwhile, you still get the atmosphere associated with using real wood to heat your home. I mean, let’s face it… the smells and sounds of a crackling fire aren’t easy to duplicate, and there’s simply nothing better than the real deal! With a stove or insert, you get the best of both worlds. Real wood-burning fires plus that much-desired efficiency any homeowner hopes for. You can’t lose!
Differences Between A Stove & An Insert
Ready to start working towards finding the right pick for your living space? We can help. The first step will be to decide between a stove or insert. If you already own a masonry fireplace, then an insert will likely be the best route to take. They can be installed into the existing unit, making it an easy transition all around!
A stove on the other hand is free-standing and there is more flexibility as far as where they can be placed. Like an insert, it gives off a tremendous amount of heat, so you’re guaranteed a warm and cozy evening, no matter what! More questions? Ask our experts, and we can help you out every step of the way.
Do You Need An Inspection?
No matter what type of fireplace, stove, or insert you own, an inspection is always necessary before kicking off your burning season. Both the CSIA and the NFPA urge homeowners to invest in at least one inspection per year to ensure your less prone to experience dangerous events like gas leaks, carbon monoxide exposure, house fires, chimney fires, and more.
