No one wants to throw away money when it comes to heating their house. When you heat your home efficiently, it can make a huge difference in your monthly energy bills. Traditional fireplaces are notorious for pulling more heat out of your home than they can actually produce, but that’s not the case with fireplace inserts. Here’s how they can help:
Since wood fireplace inserts are made of cast iron or steel, they provide better heating efficiency than regular fireplaces with more insulation to keep the heat inside your home. Fireplace inserts also have better zone heating, which prevents the warmth from escaping through the chimney.
Lower heating bills
The heat generated from a fireplace insert usually lasts longer than other fireplaces. Thanks to the greater efficiency and insulation from the insert, you’ll be able to heat your room for extended periods of time and save on energy bills.
Lower remodeling costs
It’s important to get your fireplace and chimney inspected for safety precautions, and if your fireplace needs a tune up or complete remodel, it could cost a pretty penny. The cost of installing a fireplace insert is significantly less than having your fireplace remodeled.
When it comes to maintaining a fireplace insert, the process is relatively easy compared to a traditional fireplace. They don’t require as much cleaning and all you have to do is remove any built up ash and debris.
