If you’re currently operating a traditional, open-burning masonry fireplace, you’ve probably noticed it never seems to do an ideal job in heating your home. A new pellet fireplace insert, on the other hand, will fit right into your existing fireplace’s opening and bring you a very satisfying level of heat, winter after winter.
Pellet Inserts Produce More Heat
The fireplace and stove industry uses heat efficiency ratings to tell consumers how much of the fuel burned in various appliances becomes actual heat for the home vs. how much heat is lost in drafting. Open masonry fireplaces typically receive ratings of 20% and below, which means one-fifth or less of the heat is heat you will feel. The rest goes up the chimney.
Compare this to efficiency ratings of 85% and higher for pellet-burning fireplace inserts. With a pellet insert, most of the heat generated by the appliance is available to heat your room and everyone in it. It’s a huge difference that’s made possible by how pellet inserts are designed.
How Pellet Inserts Work and Look
All types of fireplace inserts operate on a closed-combustion system. The appliance has a special vent apparatus that runs through the chimney and intakes and exhausts air. Glass doors seal the system, and strong insulation properties allow high levels of heat to be safely generated and sent into the room by a blower.
- Pellets, which typically come in 40-pound bags, are loaded into an attached hopper
- When it comes to good looks, it’s hard to beat a modern pellet-burning fireplace
