Wood inserts utilize the existing chimney through a flexible, stainless steel flue liner specifically designed for wood stoves.
Important considerations when deciding on your wood insert include the size of your existing fireplace opening, the amount of space in your home that you want to heat, the maximum length of burn time per load of wood, and the length of the logs that the stove can accommodate.
Wood inserts have blowers to help circulate the heat. Most wood inserts today have glass fronts and use air wash technology, which helps to keep the glass clean so that homeowners can enjoy the view as well as the heat of the fire.
Wood inserts provide an excellent source of back-up heat during a power outage.
