Wood Burning Fireplace Insert Buying Tips – Sudbury, Boston, MA

Friday, September 11, 2015

Interest in wood burning fireplace inserts has jumped recently. This is because they are environmentally friendly, because they add value and atmosphere to a home, they are more efficient, and because they keep you warmer in winter.

If you are interested in a new wood burning fireplace insert for your home this winter, make an informed decision when you buy. Do a bit of homework first. Measure both the room where the fireplace insert will be placed, and measure where the insert will be located in that room; length, depth and height.

This way, at West Sport in Sudbury, we can help you determine how much heat output you need to heat the room, the house or any amount of space in between. We’ll show you the models with the correct output, so we can make sure you have the heat you need to stay warm this winter. This will also make your fireplace insert as efficient and effective as possible.

There are some aesthetic questions you need to ask yourself too. Will it be placed inside a hearth? Do you want to see most of the fire? What color do you want? What style? With the increased interest in wood burning fireplace inserts, the styles, materials used, and colors available have increased as well. They range from cast iron and stainless steel, to antique and modern.

We service and install everything we sell so you can leave the installation of a new wood burning fireplace insert to us, the experts. Chimneys often need to be lined in order to avoid issues with soot and tar. And, the flue needs to be the right size in order to allow for the safe elimination of smoke. When it comes to wood burning fireplace inserts and their installation, the best tip is to contact West Sport in Sudbury and let us help.
