Fireplace Inserts / Gas - Wood - Pellet - Electric
Give your fireplace a make-over! Whether it's gas, wood, pellet or electric, a fireplace insert from Chimney Specialists, Inc., will give the fireplace a whole new look that will add value to your house and put money from lower heating bills in your pocket!
Did you know that a standard open burning fireplace is one of the most inefficient methods of heating your home and a source of significant heat loss? While a fireplace is a beautiful feature in any home, they can also be a bit problematic. To eliminate the heat loss, install a fireplace insert.
Fireplace inserts are a great way to revive an existing fireplace and turn it into an efficient appliance that is easy to operate. A fireplace insert will provide heat to your home and prevent serious heat loss through the fireplace chimney. Fireplace inserts are specifically designed to increase the efficiency of a masonry or zero clearance fireplace. An insert can be installed into most existing masonry or prefabricated fireplaces. An insert is basically a stove, without legs, that is designed to be slid into (or inserted) into your existing fireplace. A pipe is used to vent by-products of combustion and decorative panels are used to cover up the rest of the fireplace opening. We have several sizes available, depending on the dimensions of your fireplace.
Wood Burning Fireplace Inserts
Nothing really compares to a natural wood burning fire. But with a wood burning fireplace insert, you will be able to continue to enjoy the sights and sounds of natural burning wood while enjoying the benefits of a high efficiency fire. Wood burning inserts have a re-burn system designed into them that helps achieve efficiencies of 70%. We have large and small cast iron, steel and stone wood burning inserts. Optional fans provide convective heat in addition to the radiant heat from the insert. If you have a relatively quick and easy access to a wood supply, a wood burning insert may be the best option to reduce that gas or oil heating bill.
Gas Burning Fireplace Inserts
Gas fireplace inserts can convert an old wood burning fireplace into a modern day, efficient and safe heating appliance. With the convenience of adjustable gas valves and variable speed fans, these appliances can be easily controlled to keep you warm and cozy during any weather that Mother Nature dishes out. If you prefer, multi-function remote controls make the equipment easy to operate! And our nationally certified gas technicians will see to it that your new gas insert is installed properly and operating at peak efficiency, normally over 82%. Gas inserts lend themselves well to zone heating a house, too. That is, heat the area of the house that you spend the majority of your time in. We have several gas inserts that should work well in your fireplace.
Pellet Fueled Fireplace Inserts
Pellet inserts are great options for updating old fireplaces. If you are looking for an environmentally friendly source of heat with a fuel that is easy to use, a pellet insert is going to work out well for you. The heat from a pellet insert is easy to control. Simply fill up the hopper (a storage bin in the appliance) with pellets, set the easy to use controls, relax and enjoy the heat! Depending on the feed-rate, (that is, how fast the pellets are delivered to the burn pot) pellet inserts can burn for many hours without needing to be refilled. Efficiencies of pellet inserts normally exceed 80%. Talk with the experts at Chimney Specialist Inc. in Highland WI and see if a pellet insert is in your future!
Electric Powered Fireplace Inserts
Although not as common as other inserts, we do offer inserts that will turn your existing fireplace opening into a beautiful electric powered faux fire that adds ambiance at the flick of a switch or the click of a remote. No fuels to worry about just realistic flame displays complete with embers and effective space heating capabilities too.
