Fireplace Insert Installation in Seattle
Save Energy & Time with a Fireplace Insert
If you do not get much use out of your existing fireplace hearth because
you do not want to deal with the hassle of seasonal maintenance and upkeep,
a fireplace insert may allow you to enjoy your fireplace more frequently
without wasting any energy or struggling with heat loss when you start
a fire. At Olson Energy Service, we offer a variety of fireplace inserts
along with professional installation to let you make the most of your
hearth as you increase the value of your home. Read on to learn how a
fireplace insert can effectively convert your outdated masonry fireplace
to give you more functionality in your household.
Types of Fireplace Inserts
There are several different fireplace insert types, but they all follow
the same design with a fitted box that slips into the masonry fireplace
and a chimney liner that is easy to clean and maintain as well as makes
your fireplace energy efficient. Fireplace inserts may be wood stoves
or electrical or gas powered units that offer the benefit of maximum heat
retention for every fire burned. These EPA-certified devices also provide
optimal energy efficiency, so you will not have to worry about driving
up your energy bills or polluting the environment when you want to enjoy
the comfort of a warm fire.
Benefits of Installing an Insert
There are many advantages that can come with fireplace insert installation,
but the most essential is increasing the use of an existing fireplace
that never gets lit due to poor performance in heating the household.
Below you can see how fireplace inserts will improve the function of your
fireplace so that you are more likely to use this element of your home.
Reduced Heat Loss
A traditional masonry fireplace will have substantial heat loss directly
through the chimney. In fact, some fireplaces lose about 90% of the heat
they generate, making it incredibly wasteful to light a fire. Fireplace
inserts are designed to limit heat loss, making it very energy efficient.
This is because they function in the same way as wood burning stoves,
which allow heat to stay put for added comfort in the fall and winter.
Fireplace inserts can offer a more modern design for your home, especially
when you combine installation of the new unit with an upgrade to the outer
hearth of the fireplace. There are many easy-to-install options that will
create a new façade on any fireplace for a look that matches your taste.
Ease of Use
Another great benefit of fireplace inserts is that they are ready to light
at the flip of a switch so you can enjoy the comfort of a fire any time.
