Remember the power outages of the last few winters? How did you heat your homes while your waited for the power to get turned back on? Those homeowners who heated with wood had no worries about warmth. Wood burning fireplace inserts allow you to stay warm even without power. Fall may have just begun, but this is the time to invest in a wood insert.

When you see snow and wind outside, it makes the idea of a beautiful fire sound all that much more inviting. It is comforting to know that no matter the weather, you and your family will be warm. When winter brings with it a power outage, a wood burning insert allows you to stay warm.

Today’s inserts for fireplaces are EPA certified, which means they use less wood than older stoves and inserts, they burn cleaner, and they create more heat. This could be the best time to buy an insert. As home heating expenses rise, home owners are re-discovering the beauty of wood as a cheaper option and as wood burning inserts as design features for their home. Wood inserts today have come a long way

The fire box in inserts is designed to burn wood efficiently. This gives you more heat and the heat is cleaner and hotter than older stoves. So when you heat your home with a wood burning fireplace insert, there are many benefits:

  • Lower heating bills
  • Guaranteed heat when the power goes out
  • Beauty and ambiance.
  • Once installed, a wood stove can give you a lifetime of trouble-free heat.

There's nothing like wood heat in the winter. For more information on wood burning inserts, contact The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in Sudbury.

The classic mantle-and-hearth fireplace is giving way to contemporary designs that emphasize clean, simple lines, with natural gas fireplaces the top option.

Fireplaces are also getting bigger. And, there are more options when it comes to finishes, spanning from classic brick and rock to ultra-sleek tile, glass and metallic finishes.

Homeowners are moving away from the traditional open hearth in favor of clean-face fireplace inserts and wider dimensions.

Today’s fireplace inserts are a whole lot more versatile, with a range of styles, surrounds and finishes to complement any décor. Looks can easily be changed and updated as well by simply adding decorative rocks or glass crystals, or installing a new fireplace insert. It’s an easy and affordable way to revamp or customize an indoor living space.

Fireplace inserts add value to a home, and can significantly reduce heating costs. While some inserts heat only one room, others offer heat distribution systems that can circulate warm air to other parts of the home. They are more efficient because you can just heat the room you are in. A big advantage is you can transfer the heat to other rooms.

Gas fireplace inserts are the number one choice as they are convenient, easily maintained and cost-efficient. Anyone can walk in the room and flip a switch to turn it on and it costs really nothing to run. You can heat the room, and keep the furnace turned down. It would probably be between $20 and $25 for 100 hours of use – and that is a lot of use.

Gas fireplace inserts have dramatically increased in efficiency, and now come out in ultra-modern designs.

Fireplaces offer a range of benefits to a home, creating ambiance, warmth and comfort while adding value and cutting heating costs. Inserts not only serve as a focal point of a room, but as a gathering point as well. People love to sit around a fire – they have for years.

And right now, you can save up to $500 on gas liner systems when you purchase a Perterson gas fireplace insert.
