Have you ever wondered why your home feels drafty even though you have a roaring fire in the fireplace? It may seem surprising, but traditional wood-burning masonry fireplaces are actually an inefficient source of home heating. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as much as 75% to 85% of the heat produced in an open masonry fireplace is lost. That’s a lot of wasted energy!
So what can you do if you have a traditional masonry fireplace? Install and efficient Fireplace Insert that will deliver more of the heat produced to your home!
Wood burning fireplace inserts are a heating appliance that dramatically increases the effectiveness of a masonry fireplace. They are up to 50% more energy-efficient and consume over 30% less fuel for the same heating output. That means that up to 80% of the wood fuel is converted into heat. These units fit directly inside an existing masonry fireplace giving you the ambiance of an authentic fireplace experience.
Wood-burning fireplace inserts are much more energy efficient. Its internal ignition and combustion system burn hotter to convert most of the wood-fuel into useful energy with very little waste. No more wasted heat going up the chimney.
Fireplace inserts can be installed with an optional blower motor. The blower motor forces the warm air into the room to provide heat throughout your living space.
