Fireplaces, Stoves, and Inserts

Most of us visualize a fireplace as a wood-burning open hearth, there are a variety of choices when it comes to heating appliances. With fireplaces available in various sizes, styles, and fuel sources, there is a perfect heating appliance for every home. Three of the most common heating appliances are fireplace, stoves, and inserts. With pros and cons to each, the following guide can help you distinguish which type of heating appliance best fits your need and home.


fireplace insertFireplaces continue to be one of the most popular home features. A study by the National Association of Realtors found that 40% of home buyers are willing to pay more for a home with a fireplace. They are broadly divided into two categories: manufactured or factory-built fireplaces and open hearth masonry fireplaces.

Manufactured fireplaces are less expensive, but they have a shorter lifespan. Most manufactured fireplaces last for about 30 years before they need a replacement. Traditional masonry fireplaces are custom-built by a trained mason in your home. They are more expensive than manufactured fireplaces. However, they have a significantly longer lifespan – and add more value to your home. Fireplaces also come with a variety of fuel sources. Whether you prefer wood, gas or pellets, there is a fireplace for you.


Fireplace inserts burn with a closed-combustion system. It allows them to burn more efficiently, which allows less heated air escape up the chimney and less cold air from outside enter your home. According to Leslie Wheeler of the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association, installing a fireplace insert into an open hearth has been known to reduce energy bills by as much as 40 percent.

Like masonry fireplaces, inserts come in a variety of sizes, styles, and with different fuel sources. Inserts recommendations are common when homeowners are looking to switch fuel sources. If you are looking to switch from a wood to gas burning fireplace, then a gas-burning insert can be installed directly into your existing masonry chimney.


Many of us associate stoves with log cabins, more homeowners are choosing these modernized heating appliances now. New stoves are easy to use, energy efficient, and come in a variety of modern and traditional styles. Because all stoves must now be EPA certified, stoves can even be used during burn bans or periods of restricted burning.

Stoves come in a variety of sizes and styles to meet your needs and match your home’s style. From sleek, contemporary stoves to traditional, cast iron stoves that can be used to heat your home. You can install a stove in almost every room. With wood, gas, and pellets as fuel source options, there is a great stove for every household.
