Fireplace Inserts - Custom Installations

 A fireplace insert is like a wood stove that has been modified by its manufacturer to fit within the firebox of a masonry fireplace. Inserts are used to convert masonry fireplaces, which are inefficient and polluting, into effective heating systems.

A fireplace insert can burn gas, wood, or pellets, and is inserted into an existing masonry fireplace; just like a stove can be. If you have a masonry fireplace that needs a facelift, an insert is there to fill the gap and rejuvenate your room. This means that it will exclusively take the place of your masonry fireplace, by connecting the insert to the chimney and flue leading outside. Sure this looks very similar to a fireplace, but it is definitely not the same thing.

While you may not see the difference at first glance, there are many styles that make inserts and masonry fireplace look very similar. Inserts are a low-cost option compared to a complete renovation to install a gas fireplace, or completely replace your existing masonry fireplace. This is yet another reason why inserts are so versatile. A fashionable choice, inserts can change the ambiance of a room from traditional or rustic to contemporary.

We supply and install wood-burning, gas, and pellet-fuel inserts that will convert existing prefab or masonry fireplaces, which are inefficient and polluting, into effective heating systems. Everyone loves a fireplace, but you will love yours, even more, when you see the beauty and efficiency a wood fireplace insert provides!

Gas Fireplace Inserts

A direct vent gas insert is perfect for airtight homes or basements because the sealed firebox doesn’t use internal air.

Our customer wanted to make her gas fireplace more cost efficient. We converted it with Vermont Casting's Victory  Direct Vent Gas Insert. This insert drastically improves the efficiency of your masonry fireplace. You’ll use less fuel while saving money on your heating costs.

Features include:

  • No glare, non-reflective ceramic glass
  • A rear burner that can be shut off to reduce the flame on milder evenings
  • A touch screen remote that turns the fireplace on and off with 3 distinct flame levels in between
  • A Smart Mode thermostat which maintains the temperature to help increase efficiency, and automatic battery backup that operates the hearth even when the power is out.

Perfect for the mountains! Skilled artisans create the Rustic Arched and Rectangular Doors, adding unique details for  a truly one-of-a-kind look with Distressed Buffed Pewter & Distressed Black Copper color options !

Pellet-Fuel Fireplace Insert

It's hard to beat a pellet-burning fireplace insert when it comes to reliability, consistency, and  ease of use in terms of home heating.

A pellet-burning system works so well because the heating process produces so little ash or other by-products. It is a very simple task to dispose of that ash and maintain the insert.

Our customer chose the Savannah “TASMAN 401” Pellet Insert because  it works & looks great, it is incredibly user-friendly, and it is much less expensive than many other home heating options.

If you are unsure about what kind of heat to use in your home, consider the value & convenience that a pellet-fuel fireplace insert has to offer.
