What Are Fireplace Inserts?
Fireplace inserts are normally installed in existing fireboxes or as stand-alone units, such as a wood stove like the Drolet Myriad III. These units are self-contained, made of metal with a glass front, and are either wood-burning, gas-powered or electric. They supply a nice flow of heat to your space, with some models fitted with blowers that can push air throughout the room.
Wood-burning Fireplace Inserts vs. Gas Fireplace Inserts
Here are the main considerations to think about when choosing between wood-burning and gas fireplace inserts:
- Gas inserts burn with more than 90 percent efficiency, while wood inserts, like the Drolet Escape 1500-I Wood Insert With Faceplate, burn at around 70 percent efficiency. Both offer better heat production than a traditional fireplace, where the majority of heat is lost through the chimney.
- Gas inserts require an existing line that supplies propane or natural gas, whereas wood-burning inserts require you to source lumber to enjoy a fire. Pick up a 10-pack of Green Mountain Fire Logs to make starting your fire easier.
How much does it cost for a fireplace insert?
Fireplace insert prices range from a few hundred dollars for lower-end models to a few thousand dollars for higher-end models.
