While traditional, open-burning fireplaces are a beautiful addition to any space, they are often considered inefficient heating units since most of the heat that is produced escapes up and out of the chimney. This is why many homeowners consider installing a fireplace insert when upgrading an older fireplace. Pellet fireplace inserts are a wonderful choice, as they are highly efficient and eco-friendly. As one of the most effective and efficient hearth products on the market, pellet inserts can help you reduce both your heating bill and your environmental footprint while still enjoying a beautiful fire all winter long.
Pellet inserts are installed directly in the opening of your traditional fireplace and will instantly improve the heat output and appearance of your hearth. Boasting heat efficiencies of over 80%, these units are a smart choice for cost-effective and convenient heating.
Pellet Inserts are Reliable & Effective
Not much compares to a real, wood-fueled fire, but many homeowners dread the upkeep, legwork, and maintenance of a wood burning fireplace or insert. Pellet fireplace inserts are incredibly easy to use, can run for hours without requiring attention, and provide a steady heat all day long. Running on a natural, recycled, and renewable fuel source, pellet inserts can be loaded with the wood pellet fuel, then set and forget while the unit perfectly warms your favorite space for hours on end. Modern technological advances help circulate the warm air into your home instead of letting it escape out of the chimney, which can help cut heating costs.
How a Pellet Insert Works
Pellet inserts are designed to operate much like a coal stove or furnace. The pellets, which are created with compressed saw dust, wood bits, and wood byproducts, are poured into a storage bin called a hopper. The auger motor than automatically feeds the pellets into the firebox at a speed determined by the homeowner. The faster the pellets are fed into the firebox, the hotter the fire. On many newer models, the rate the pellets are dispensed can be set by a thermostat to automate the process of producing heat.
The size of the hopper and the speed or temperature you set the insert will determine how often you will need to refill the unit. Some pellet inserts can create a steady heat for 36 hours without needing more pellet fuel. This has made pellet fireplace inserts extremely popular in recent years with homeowners who struggle with starting and maintaining a fire for hours at a time.
