Wood fireplaces inserts have evolved with technology. A prime example is how efficient they operate. Most masonry fireplaces are only about 15% efficient, meaning 85% of the heat went out of the chimney. New wood-burning units are up to 87% percent efficient. There are other advantages, as well:

  • Very warm comfortable heat
  • Many burn up to 15+ hours on only one load
  • Safer than a masonry unit
  • No electric needed
  • A free heat source for those with wooded properties
