Wood Burning Fireplace Inserts Make Fireplaces More Efficient and Beautiful – Boston, Natick, Sudbury, MA

Friday, September 19, 2014

Everyone loves relaxing in front of a wood burning fire when it is cold outside. It is hard to beat that feeling from an open burning wood fireplace. But, most of us are not that fond of the amount of fire wood that it consumes.

So, let’s talk about fireplace inserts. A fireplace insert is inserted directly into your open fireplace instantly making your hearth more attractive and most important, more efficient.

Wood burning fireplace inserts can take your fireplace from negative efficiency, (meaning it is even worse than not being efficient, you actually lose money when burning it) to over 75% efficient. Obviously, that means that you can save money when using a wood burning fireplace insert.

Of course, with an insert you will be viewing the fire behind the ceramic glass front; but the fire may last up to eight hours on a single charge of wood. And the frame around the fireplace insert is very attractive and often adds ambiance to a room even when the fire is not lit.

Fireplace Inserts are available in many styles and sizes. Want to learn more? Contact West Sport in Sudbury.
