Install a New Wood-Burning Fireplace Insert
As charming and nostalgic as open-hearth masonry fireplaces are, they’ve never been great at producing heat for a home. On top of that, many Californians complain that these fireplaces are drafty and seem to add more cool than heat to their rooms.
If you love burning real wood, there’s a perfect solution for you: a powerful new wood-burning fireplace insert. Oliver Twist Chimney & Fireplace of Huntington Beach, CA, sells wood-burning fireplace inserts from top brands.
What Is a Fireplace Insert?
Wood fireplace inserts are pre-built units ready to be placed into the firebox of an existing masonry fireplace. They’re perfectly self-contained and ready to amaze you with their performance.
How Inserts Are Installed
Inserts should be installed only by experienced fireplace technicians to make sure nothing gets overlooked in the process.
Among the most important installation tasks is seeing to it that the appliance is set up according to the numerous California state building and fire safety codes.
Does Wood Burn the Same Way in a Fireplace Insert?
Yes. As with an open masonry fireplace, you simply add your logs, light them and let the appliance do its job. And one of its primary jobs is producing heat.
What About Venting?
Because wood-burning inserts essentially replace your existing masonry fireplace, they’ll be vented through the chimney that’s already there.
A special vent pipe is added as part of the installation, ensuring that the flue passage is the correct size for the insert.
Supreme Beauty and Elegance
Fireplace inserts on the market today come in a range of design styles, finishes and special touches that make them truly elegant upgrades to any hearth area. You’ll enjoy using your new insert, and you’ll also enjoy just having it there to beautify the room all year long.
Choosing the Right Wood Insert
If it sounds like a new wood fireplace insert is a great option for your home, let the experts at Oliver Twist help you choose the exact unit to match your heating needs and decorative requirements.
We’ll then install your unit safely and in a way that complies with state and local building and fire safety codes. After getting everything set up, we’ll show you how to operate your new insert and give you some helpful tips on care and maintenance.
More Heat for Your Home
Modern fireplace inserts will outperform any masonry fireplace because they operate on a “closed” system rather than an “open” system.
This means that 70% or more of the heat they generate will be available for your home. Compare that to the 10% to 20% heat-retention of a masonry fireplace.
