← Back to Heating with Wood

A woodburning insert can provide an attractive way to upgrade an existing masonry fireplace into an efficient, heat source. Models offer a wide selection of fronts and surrounds to fit a range of fireplace opening and to customize the look of your new heating appliance.

The "open burning" fireplace is almost always a negative efficiency. This means that the fireplace's oversized draft actually pulled more heated air out of your house than it produced in the home at the high firing rate.

Our EPA certified wood burning fireplace inserts all achieve the industry standard of at least 75% efficient.

Stop the heat loss and save on those heating bills!
