Wood Burning Inserts and Wood Stoves

Wood Burning Inserts and Wood Stoves

Wood-burning inserts are typically wood-burning stoves that have the option to be a freestanding wood stove with a leg kit. These inserts are literally just placed in your existing fireplace. These appliances fit into the opening of the fireplace, with some models protruding onto the hearth. An insert that is extended out may be more efficient because the sides, top, and bottom provide additional radiant heat. Like newer model wood stoves, new inserts must be EPA certified, making them clean burning and highly efficient. Wood burning inserts are made from either plate steel or cast iron and most have glass doors so you can see the flames and have the ambience that you had with your traditional fireplaces. Inserts often have blowers, which can significantly improve efficiency and the heat circulation. Blowers are usually mounted in the front or along the sides of the insert. Some blowers are controlled manually, while a thermostat regulates others.
