How A Fireplace Insert Can Save You Money
You have a blazing fire in the fireplace but still feel chilled. Did you know that only 10% of the heat produced by an ordinary fireplace radiates into your home? The rest of the heat escapes up your chimney. A fireplace insert can help you maintain the heat and bring a more efficient heating source to your home. With the high fuel costs, saving money on heating is at the top of the list for everyone these days.
Here Are Some Of The Ways An Insert Can Save You Money
Decrease heating and cooling bills
You can save money year-round by inserting a fireplace insert. With a traditional fireplace, most of the heat escapes up the chimney. With a fireplace insert, the fire is maintained within the box. A fireplace insert is an enclosed combustion system. This means you won’t feel drafts from the chimney when the fireplace is not in use. You will also notice that you won’t lose heat or cool air from your home out of the chimney. The fireplace insert is insulated. Its glass doors, tight firebox, and venting system help the insulation process. The insert will lock in the heat and keep the cool air and draft from entering your home. This will save on your heating bill as you use your fireplace as an extra heating source.
The other way you will save is with your cooling bills. With a typical fireplace, heat and cool air escape through the chimney. The chimney is secure with an insert so cool air won’t escape during the summer.
At Ye Olde Brit, we will professionally install your fireplace insert. Our technicians are professionally trained to give you quality workmanship.
Extra heat source
Having a traditional fireplace is lovely, yet does it bring in that much heat? Probably not; mine never did. By installing a fireplace insert, you are incorporating a secondary heat source. You will still be able to enjoy the ambiance of a traditional wood-burning fireplace. You will be able to turn down your traditional heating source while using your fireplace. In the long run, this will save you money on your heating bill. Whatever your primary source is, oil, gas, or electricity.
You don’t have to install a wood-burning insert. You have the option of wood, gas, or electric. But whichever you choose call Ye Olde Brit, they will make sure the size and fit are perfect for your fireplace.
