As fireplaces are generally made of heavy and hard-looking materials such as brick or stone, they can weigh down the look of a room if dressed improperly.

Fireplace inserts arent intended for whole house heating, but will add supplemental, zoned heat to your home. Most older fireplaces are only 5-10% efficient. This inefficiency is the result of an open hearth that produces only slightly more warm air than it consumes.
