Homeowners throughout the Pensacola, FL, and Destin, FL, areas are upgrading their inefficient masonry fireplaces with fabulous new fireplace inserts. Why the trend?
Doodlebuggers performs a lot of these upgrades in Pensacola and Destin, and we’d like to tell you about some of the benefits you’ll enjoy when you retire your old masonry fireplace and add a powerful new wood or gas fireplace insert.
A fireplace insert is a manufactured appliance that comes ready to have professionally installed in the firebox of your existing masonry fireplace. Available in gas and wood models, inserts use their own vent pipe that runs through the chimney. Regarding looks, you’ll be amazed by the beauty of a new insert and how it enhances the overall appearance of your room.
Fireplace insert benefits you might not be aware of:
Fireplace inserts operate on a closed system that burns fuel far more efficiently than a standard “open” masonry fireplace. This means less wood or gas fuel cost for you.
Your masonry fireplace lets as much as 90% of the heat it produces drift away up the chimney. Fireplace inserts, on the other hand, come with heat efficiency ratings of 70% and often much higher. This means that most of the heat they produce will be available for your home.
Masonry fireplaces tend to be drafty. The closed system of a fireplace insert dramatically reduces draftiness with handsome safety doors that shut tightly.
As noted above, today’s gas and wood fireplace inserts are built to impress with a wide range of traditional and contemporary designs. With all the beautiful colors, styles and finishing touches available, you’ll instantly add elegance and sophistication to your room.
Fireplace inserts can effectively heat spaces from 1,000 square feet to 3,000 square feet. You’ll be able to select the perfect model to meet your heating needs.
Inserts on the market today meet strict EPA emissions standards. They create less junk to send into the atmosphere and burn their fuel far more efficiently and completely than any traditional masonry fireplace.
