All About Wood Stove Fireplace Inserts

Now that colder weather is starting to arrive here in the Albany area, homeowners are starting to get their heating systems ready for winter and looking for ways to increase their heat but decreasing costs. One of the most popular hearth heating appliances with the lowest energy efficiency is the traditional masonry fireplace. So much heated air escapes out of the chimney that one has to turn up the thermostat to make up for the loss of heat. If you love your older wood-burning fireplace but are wishing that it provided more heat so that you could save money on your heating bills, Champs Chimney Service would like to tell you more about how a wood stove fireplace insert can fulfill your wishes. We are proud to provide superior sales and installation services of all types of fireplace, stove, and other hearth heating appliances, and we want to help you learn how to make your home more energy efficient with a new wood stove insert.

How does a wood stove fireplace insert work?

According to the Wood Heat Organization, an insert is basically a stove that is designed to fit inside the firebox of a masonry fireplace. By installing an insert, you are converting your old inefficient and polluting fireplace into a much more effective heat provider to your home. A steel shell surrounds the firebox of an insert and ensures that most of the heat produced will go into your living area instead of out of your home through the chimney.

What are the benefits of a wood stove fireplace insert?

This type of fireplace appliance is perfect for homeowners who love the sensory experience of burning wood but want a more efficient heat source. All wood stove fireplace inserts are certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) so you can trust that your insert will burn wood safely and efficiently. You will not have to use as much wood, and you can enjoy longer and hotter fires that produce less smoke and creosote. You will also save money on your heating costs this winter, which may be our favorite benefit!
