But before you start shopping for your gas or wood burning unit, here’s a little bit about fireplaces, inserts, and stoves to help with your selection.
No Masonry Chimney Needed With Modern Fireplaces
Modern fireplaces are made of cast iron or steel and come as whole units — meaning, they’re simply installed, not built. With new prefab or factory-built fireplaces, there are no brick-by-brick labor and material costs, which is a big relief for many homebuyers.
Today you’ll find see-through fireplaces and zero clearance fireplaces that make it easy to enjoy the warmth and inviting charm of a fireplace, no matter what your home setup is like. And the best thing is, you won’t need to have a new masonry chimney added, because these fireplaces can be vented through metal chimney pipe. That’s big savings on installation time and costs.
If you’ve always wished your home had a fireplace — if that’s the one thing you’ve been missing — there’s never been a better time to make that wish come true. You can now have a beautiful, efficient, powerful wood or gas fireplace installed in no time.
Fireplace Inserts Improve Fuel Efficiency
Like prefab fireplaces, fireplace inserts are made of cast iron or steel. The difference is that these are used in existing open fireplaces with a chimney system.
If you already have a masonry fireplace but you’re ready to say goodbye to the heat waste and inefficiency of your existing fireplace, an insert can be a great option. Inserts are known to improve fuel efficiency and heat output over a traditional masonry fireplace by capturing the energy and heating a larger surface.
As efficiency has improved, so has the stylish look of the modern day insert. If you haven’t looked at one lately, you might want to consider one if you are looking for a change.
Inserts come in many fuel types: natural gas, propane, EPA-certified wood, pellet, and coal. This will give you some options if you are ready to change the fuel type to your existing fireplace.
Free Standing Stoves Add Heat To Big & Small Spaces
Free standing stoves are powerful heaters that can be installed just about anywhere and vented through a wall or ceiling.
Even if you don’t have an existing stove, you can install one in most any room where you want some additional heat. A chimney is not needed, as stoves are vented through stove pipe.
There are many great stove options out there for homeowners who love the classic cast iron stove look, but more modern-looking stoves are available as well. So don’t rule out stoves as a heating option just because you have a more modern or contemporary space.
