New EPA certified wood fireplace inserts are rated 65% efficient and provide the added benefit of reducing emissions to almost zero. Fireplace inserts are classified by the fuel they burn and the method of venting. The available fuels are: natural gas, propane, wood, pellet and coal. For around $30, you can purchase a kit that will convert a natural gas insert to propane. Also, if you live more than 4,000 feet above sea level, your gas insert might require a smaller orifice jet to compensate for the lack of oxygen.
Fireplaces aren’t what they were a hundred years ago. Today you can have a fireplace anywhere in your home. For example take a look at these modern fireplace from Edilkamin. They come in different materials, colors and finishes to suit your taste. Three geometric designs, with integrated storage, which are particularly appropriate for a modern, spacious environment, are the Art Acciaio, the Art Wenge and the Kubik.
Of course, modern homes do not need to worry so much about this functionality, so the fireplace design has become a bit more of an artful focal point, yet they usually still remain in the corner of a room. There are plenty of online sources that offer unique Scandinavian-style fireplaces, so take a look and see if you can find one to add this warm eclectic touch to your home.
Weighing in at around 400 pounds, its no easy task moving the insert when it comes time to clean the chimney. This in itself is good reason to rely on a professional chimney sweep. Although theyre not easy to find, some fireplace inserts have wheels on the bottom for easier moving. You can avoid moving the insert altogether for chimney cleaning if you install a stainless steel pipe liner form the insert outlet up through the entire chimney. When youre pricing fireplace inserts, make sure to include the cost of accessories such as blowers, catalytic combustors and glass doors. Fro instance, you can purchase a wood burning insert for only $860.00, but the door comes extra, as in $200-$300 extra.
