Wood-burning fireplace inserts allow you to enjoy clean and warm heat.

With a new wood-burning fireplace insert, you will not have to worry about contributing as much pollution as you would have with those types of heating appliances in the past. New technology has led to the development of wood-burning inserts that are certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to How Stuff Works, newer EPA-certified wood-burning fireplace inserts are guaranteed to efficiently and safely burn wood with less smoke.

Wood-burning fireplace inserts work efficiently when they are professionally installed.

In order to ensure your new heating appliance functions safely and efficiently, the chimney experts at Aelite Chimney Specialties will also install a stainless steel chimney liner that properly fits the insert. Since these new fireplace inserts are smaller than the older masonry fireplace, you will need a flue that fits the insert to prevent chimney draft problems and other costly issues. We will also make sure your new wood-burning fireplace insert is working as it should after installation.

Wood-burning fireplace inserts will save you money on heating costs.

Not only has new technology allowed for burning wood more cleanly, these new wood-burning fireplace inserts will reduce your consumption of wood. Fires burned in these inserts burn longer and produce more warmth to your home. Most models of these inserts are equipped with blowers that can evenly distribute the heat from the fire throughout the room. We know you will see a decrease in how much money you spent to heat your home after installing a new wood-burning fireplace insert.

Now is a perfect time to begin the new year with a new wood-burning fireplace insert. Contact us at Aelite Chimney Specialties to get started on updating your older masonry fireplace to a more efficient heating appliance.
