Wood burning fireplace inserts are becoming a popular choice as a supplemental heating source for New England homeowners. A wood burning insert allows you to continue enjoying the gentle roar of logs burning in the hearth without losing most of the heat up the chimney. While a traditional fireplace is only about 10% efficient on a good day, a wood insert can be up to 80% efficient. This improved efficiency means that you will be able to heat more square feet of your home with a blaze glowing in your fireplace.
Wood fireplace inserts combine the technology of wood stoves with the aesthetic appeal of a fireplace. They are designed to burn wood more efficiently and circulate the heat throughout your home while updating the look of your fireplace. The appliance fits into masonry and factory built fireplaces. Decorative glass doors and attractive paneling along the side make it an attractive addition. We carry wood fireplace inserts in a variety of styles ranging from rustic to modern at Yankee Doodle, Inc. Stove & Fireplace Center. Whether you are planning to heat one room or a whole floor with a new fireplace insert, we have one that will complement your home décor and meet your needs. If you are unsure of your heating requirements, one of our qualified hearth experts will be glad to visit your house, take measurements, and offer advice & guidance for selecting the perfect wood fireplace insert.
Wood Burning is Actually Eco-Friendly
One of the benefits of upgrading your fireplace with a wood insert is that it reduces your environmental impact. While wood is a renewable, carbon neutral resource, traditional fireplaces emit harmful byproducts produced by the fire into the atmosphere. Contemporary wood burning inserts meet the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) low emission standards. They are innovatively designed to burn wood and combustion byproducts more completely so that they produce less harmful emissions. Some EPA-certified wood inserts actually exceed the EPA’s standards and are considered clean burning. Along with reducing the emissions produced, the improved efficiency of wood inserts reduces the amount of fuel needed to generate a significant amount of heat. You can use less wood to heat your home with a wood insert and every log you burn will generate more heat. With an EPA- certified wood insert, you can feel good about choosing to heat your home with a roaring fire.
Stylish & Functional
The attractive design and improved functionality of today’s inserts are additional benefits to adding a wood insert to your home. Some models are as effective as a furnace. With the touch of a button you can start the fire and enjoy the heat it generates for up to 12 hours without adding more fuel. While the technical specifications vary from model to model, today’s wood inserts offer conveniences that are unmatched by traditional fireplaces. Your fireplace will still be an attractive focal point. We have expertly crafted cast iron inserts and sleek, modern steel inserts along with many other styles so that you do not have to sacrifice the aesthetic appeal of your fireplace for functionality.
