Everyone loves a wood-burning fireplace because of the ambiance it creates. Holidays or other special occasions are ideal for gathering in front of the hearth with your family. Even though a traditional masonry wood-burning fireplace can create a scene suitable for a greeting card, it is doubtlessly inefficient. Most of the heat generated in a masonry wood-burning fireplace is lost up the chimney. What is the answer if you want an efficient wood-burning fireplace? Wood-burning fireplace inserts give you all the feel of a masonry wood-burning fireplace but with greater efficiency.
A wood-burning fireplace insert is a prefabricated appliance that fits inside your existing masonry fireplace’s firebox. With a variety of styles to choose from, it is no wonder wood-burning fireplace inserts continue to grow in popularity.
Older masonry fireplaces are in an open system that preserves almost none of the heat produced by the logs burning inside of them. If you want a cost-effective way to heat your home, a masonry fireplace is not the solution.
Wood burning fireplaces inserts are in a closed system which reflects the heat from burning logs back into your home. Wood-burning fireplace inserts are so efficient that they keep upwards of 80% of the heat produced by the logs burning inside them. What does that mean? It means a wood-burning fireplace insert doesn’t waste most of the heat produced up your chimney.
You won’t sacrifice any of the sights or smells that make masonry fireplaces popular when you use a wood-burning fireplace insert. Just like a masonry fireplace, you can burn natural logs in your wood-burning fireplace insert but with greater heating of your home.
If your existing masonry fireplace is just an eyesore, or you are embarking on a home remodeling project, wood-burning fireplace inserts are a wise choice. A variety of colors and styles are available from Regency that allows you to tailor your wood-burning fireplace insert to your home’s decor.
