Preserving Your Masonry Fireplace's Beauty
Gas-burning inserts are a great alternative for many homeowners. These systems rely on your supply of natural gas and create an efficient heating system. However, they lack the one thing many people have come to love about having a fireplace: the crackling and burning of using real wood.
This is where a wood burning insert comes into play. If you’re looking for a way to optimize your fireplace system, yet don’t want to lose the beauty and ambiance of a traditional experience, then the solution is a wood burning inset.
Do They Still Require An Annual Chimney Sweep Inspection?
Because a wood burning insert still produces soot, it will still need to be routinely cleaned and inspected. This helps to ensure your system is in peak operational condition at the start of each season. Our CSIA-certified team is well-versed in the ins and outs of wood burning inserts and is ready to help with these alternatives as needed.

What Are The Benefits Of A Wood Burning Insert?
Wood burning inserts provide many of the same benefits as a traditional fireplace, including ambiance and warmth. The biggest benefit of a wood burning insert is that it helps your system work more effectively — often, with upward of 80% heat retention. How is this possible exactly?
The answer is in how the system works. With a traditional fireplace, much of the heat is lost through your chimney. However, a wood burning insert utilizes a closed system, which helps to deliver more heat directly into your home.
