Upgrade an Outdated Fireplace
Do you have a traditional open masonry fireplace that simply isn’t giving you enough heat to justify its upkeep? This is a common issue many homeowners face.
Masonry fireplaces, while they bring a distinctive ambience to a home, don’t bring all that much heat. Fortunately, you don’t have to have a brand-new fireplace built to solve the heat problem. A powerful new fireplace insert is the answer.
What a Gas or Wood Fireplace Insert Will Do for You
Fireplace inserts are custom-built in a factory and sized to fit into the fireboxes of masonry fireplaces. There’s nothing to construct, nothing to build. Look at some of the benefits:
Inserts carry heat-efficiency ratings of 70% and even much higher, depending on the model. Masonry fireplaces typically are rated at around 10% to 20%. This percentage tells you how much of the heat produced will be retained to heat your home.
Lower utility bills
By using a wood or gas insert as supplemental heating, you’ll spend less on your central heating system and lower your monthly bills.
Small or large rooms
Inserts vary in BTU output, making it easy to purchase the ideal appliance for smaller rooms or rooms as large as 3,000 square feet.
Inserts use their own vent pipe. While your existing chimney flue will house the new pipe, the flue itself will not be affected.
Gas fireplace inserts provide heat until you turn them off; wood-burning inserts can burn logs for up to five hours before more fuel is needed.
Both gas, wood, and electric inserts from top manufacturers such as Enviro, Pacific Energy and SimpliFire come in a wide range of exciting designs styles and finishes.
Upgrade Your Fireplace With a Stunning Vented Or Vent-Free Gas Log Set
Felgemacher Fireplace Shop carries a selection of beautiful gas log sets that bear a striking resemblance to real wood logs like Aspen, oak, pine, pecan, driftwood and more. These logs look so real, you may not be able to tell the difference at first. When it comes to gorgeous fires and absolute minimal maintenance and cleaning, it’s hard to beat a new gas log set.
Complete Your Fireplace Remodel With Great Finishing Touches
After you’ve decided on the perfect fireplace insert or realistic gas log set, what else can you do to your hearth area to bring more style and vibrancy to your room? Plenty.
Fireplace surround: Add an eye-catching fireplace surround with faux or custom-built brick, stone, granite or wood.
Fireplace mantel: No fireplace is complete without a handsome mantel for adding portraits, flowers, vases, antiques, kids’ artwork and anything else that grabs you.
Raised hearth: A raised hearth built of sturdy brick is a lovely compliment to any hearth area. Use the hearth for a fireplace tool set, a small log stack and other amenities to truly customize the area.
