Wood Burning Insert Upgrade

Transform Your Chimney For A Better Combustion

Transforming Your Old Fireplace

Upgrade your fireplace with a wood burning insert

A wood burning insert is a box of steel and cast-iron which creates a closed combustion system. There are several advantages in upgrading your current fireplace with a wood burning insert.

Being health and environmentally friendly 

Eco-Friendly Wood Burning Insert

A traditional fireplace will release smoke (a bad combination of gases and particles) into your home which can harm your respiratory system. Because of their design, wood burning inserts create a closed combustion system which allows for a much better consumption of firewood and consequently, leaves very little harmful by-products behind.

In addition, as you might have read in our chimney cleaning section, burning wood creates creosote which is highly flammable. As mentioned in that section, using high calorific wood will help reduce the formation of creosote. Because a wood burning insert leaves very little behind, the formation of creosote is reduced.

Studies show that only 20% of the heat produced in a traditional fireplace is being used. The rest goes out the chimney. On cold days, your fireplace exhausts more heat than it produces. Very low efficiency. Wood burning inserts will raise it up to 60-80% resulting in cost savings. You will definitely run much longer with the same quantity of wood that you would be using in a traditional fireplace. In this regard, it will help you cut your heating bill and get you some savings
