How do I choose a fireplace insert?

A fireplace insert is designed to be placed inside of an existing fireplace, so you will need to make sure that you select one of appropriate size. You will also want to consider what sort of fuel the insert you're considering requires and whether it would need to be vented through a chimney. If you will be using your insert for heat, you will also need to consider the size of the space that you will be heating in order to make sure that your fireplace insert will heat it adequately.

Are fireplace inserts worth the money?

Fireplace inserts can be a great investment. They cut down on the hassle of dealing with cleaning and maintaining traditional wood-burning fireplaces. They can also help you save on your heating bill when you use them in conjunction with turning down your home's thermostat.
