Wood fireplace inserts are a classic fireplace choice. They provide the glowing beauty and pleasant crackle of a wood-burning fire. But unlike a traditional open wood hearth, a wood fireplace insert cranks out enough heat to supplement your furnace and reduce your home-heating costs. Because wood fireplaces burn more efficiently, they also require less wood and less tending than traditional open-hearth, wood-burning fireplaces, and they release less indoor and outdoor air pollution.


Pellet inserts mirror the classic look of a wood-burning fireplace, but with far less work and far more heat. Pellet inserts burn dehydrated wood pellets, or other organic fuel, such as dried corn or cherry pits. A hopper is filled with pellets, and an electric auger automatically feeds the pellet into the fireplace; some pellet inserts are even outfitted with programmable thermostats to control the flow of pellets into the fire and control the temperature of your living space.


Gas fireplaces have become increasingly popular. If your home is outfitted with a wood-burning fireplace that often sits unused, a gas fireplace can help you to transform your hearth into a useful home appliance. Gas fireplaces rank as the most efficient type of fireplace. With the flip of a switch, you can add heat and ambiance to your home’s main living space. A gas fireplace can help you save on your winter heating bills by efficiently heating the rooms you spend the most time in while allowing you to turn the thermostat down for the rest of your home. Even better: A gas fireplace requires no work to ignite a fire and very little regular maintenance.


Like gas fireplace inserts, electric fireplaces allow you to transform your existing hearth space to a convenient, efficient and easy-to-use source of heat. Electric fireplaces require no ventilation, so they can be easily installed in virtually any existing hearth space. Many electric fireplaces can even be used with the heat setting turned off, so you can enjoy the beauty and ambiance of a fire without the heat when it isn’t needed.

If you’re ready to transform your hearth into a usable and useful home-heating appliance, stop by one of FireSide Hearth & Home’s four showrooms. Our fireplace experts can help you select the right type of fireplace insert for your hearth and show you some different types of fireplace inserts in action.
