If you love a crackling fire and the smell of burning wood, no need to sacrifice the pleasure of enjoying a fireplace, in spite of strict EPA regulations. With a fireplace insert, your traditional masonry fireplace is transformed into an efficient heating source that still provides the elements of a fireplace that many of us are sentimental about. There’s just something cozy and sometimes even romantic about sitting near a crackling fire and enjoying the warmth provided by burning logs.
While just as beautiful and vastly similar in appearance to a traditional fireplace, a fireplace insert is a heating appliance with an efficiency rating of up to 70%. A true upgrade from the inefficient open hearth fireplace, which has an efficiency of 5 to 10%, inserts are designed to send the heat into your home rather than up the chimney. They have ceramic glass doors that seal tightly and controls on the amount of air supplied to the fire. Secondary burn tubes that come with a fireplace insert burn the combustion by-products, instead of sending more pollution up the chimney. There are variable speed fans which deliver more heat into the room, as well. An insert can actually transform either an old masonry fireplace or a zero clearance fireplace into a more efficient source of heat.
Heating costs rise every year, and a wood-burning fireplace insert is an excellent way to cut utility costs. You can save even more money if you have your own supply of trees for firewood. Anyone who needs to do a fireplace rebuild can save a huge amount by installing a fireplace insert instead of rebuilding.
There are many beautiful models of fireplace inserts to choose from, and designs are available that can fit with any style that suits you, such as rustic, elegant, traditional, or modern. We specialize in building mantels and surrounds, and you can see many examples in our enormous showroom.
All fireplaces in our service area have strict efficiency requirements, and we offer appliances that all qualify for the even stricter EPA2 standards mandated in the San Joaquin Valley and throughout many regions of California. As enjoyable as a fireplace insert is, it’s a good choice primarily because it is an efficient, cost-effective, environmentally friendly heat source.
Carbon Neutral and Renewable
Firewood doesn’t release any more carbon into the atmosphere than if the log deteriorated naturally in the forest. Not only is wood-burning carbon neutral, but firewood is a renewable resource, unlike oil, gas, and other energy sources. Burning wood in a fireplace insert is a way to go green.
