All About Fireplace Inserts & What They Can Offer Your York County Home

As the years have gone by, we’ve seen more and more homeowners invest in inserts. There’s no doubt these systems are growing in popularity, but many are still skeptical about how a fireplace insert might affect their ambiance. After all, won’t an insert lack the appeal and vibe of a traditional fireplace?

If this is the group you find yourself in, we get it. But the truth is, there are actually lots of benefits from making this investment, and you can still get in on that timeless aesthetic so many crave for holiday get-togethers and cozy evenings in.

Reasons to Invest in an Insert

So, why might someone finally make the decision to switch to an insert? Here are some of the more common scenarios:

  • You’re looking to switch fuel types: If you want to convert your wood-burning fireplace into a more convenient gas-fueled one, installing an insert is an easy way to get this done.
  • You’re not satisfied with your fireplace’s heat output: An undeniable fact in the chimney industry is that fireplace inserts are superior when it comes to efficiency. You’ll get much more heat in your living space, allowing for pleasant evenings in, lower energy bills, and less waste.
  • You need renovations, but don’t want to break the bank: Need fireplace repairs? In some cases, you can forgo necessary renovations and simply invest in an insert instead! An insert installation will be more affordable, less hassle, and a lot quicker to complete – that’s hard to beat.
  • You’re worried about your carbon footprint: Depending on the model and fuel type, the insert you invest in could be a lot better for the environment than the system you’re currently using. For instance, switching from a wood-burning fireplace to a gas-fueled insert will reduce your carbon footprint significantly.
  • You’re sick of wasting time on fireplace maintenance: Fireplaces are coveted by many and make a great addition to the home. That said, they can take up a lot of time in terms of maintenance! If you don’t want to lose that classic ambiance, but can’t keep up with the extra work involved, switching to an insert could help to lighten your load considerably.
