Benefits of Fireplace Inserts

  • Heat more, longer, and with less fuel.
  • Be prepared for a power outage.
  • Eliminate chimney heat loss.
  • Reduce outdoor smoke emissions.
  • Less expensive than masonry repairs.

With the vast amount of fireplace inserts, almost any fireplace can be transformed from an old-fashioned masonry fireplace into a heat-generating, carbon neutral, reliable heat source.

#1 Cut Heating Costs:

Old-fashioned masonry fireplaces steal your home’s heat by drawing the air in your home up the chimney. Even with a good damper, heat will escape. Installing a quality fireplace insert will virtually seal your chimney and drastically improve your heating costs. In addition, a masonry fireplace has an open hearth which, while pulling air up the chimney, makes wood burn faster at a much lower temperature. Fireplace inserts are well insulated and sealed, creating a slower and hotter burn.

#2 Reduce Carbon Emissions:

The longer a fire burns, the more it burns harmful gases. With today’s fireplace insert technology, you gain more heat with less fuel, while drastically reducing smoke and emission into the environment. The reason is a secondary combustion method which introduces oxygen into the firebox and promotes re-burn of most of the smoke and gases that would otherwise line your flue as creosote and exit your chimney as smoke.

#3 Masonry Repairs:

Chimney repairs are costly.  When you install a fireplace insert, we also install one of our chimney flue inserts manufactured to fit the the fireplace insert.  Usually, this consists of running  a stainless steel liner down the chimney, connected to a flex liner that can adapt to the angles in your flue and create a direct connection with your new firebox. These liners are easily cleaned by a professional without having to disconnect the installation. The installation of a fireplace insert can restore the integrity of your chimney and save you money.

    #1 Fuel Options

    Wood: Nothing heats like wood. It brightens the evenings and provides a gentle radiant heat. Wood is nature’s renewable resource: a natural fuel that, when used in any of our EPA certified inserts, produces no more emissions than would normally be produced from the same wood if left to decay in the forest. Consideration should be taken regarding the ease and cost of wood sources.

    Gas: Both natural gas and LP gas (propane) are a burning option. These inserts require a fuel source, burn very cleanly and emit very little pollution. Although some models do not require outside venting, the EPA does not support their use due to indoor air quality concerns. Gas inserts are typically more efficient than either wood or pellet due to the higher levels of insulation. However, gas is more expensive to purchase.

    The professional staff at Dean’s Stove & Spa can help you calculate and design a plan for the best insert to meet your needs and budget.

    #2 Fronts, Faces & Décor

    #3 Looking Through the Glass:

    Many customers have said that they will miss the ambiance and view of their comfy old traditional fire. They are surprised to learn that not only are there hundreds of glass size options, but the glass stays clean! A steady stream of fresh air enters, gets hot as it is drawn up the heated air chamber, and travels through a screened air wash that diffuses and evenly distributes air across the glass to keep smoke and ash particles away.
