Below we have mentioned a few tips to decide the type of fireplace insert. Take a look.
- Insert Size
The inserts don’t follow the one-size-fits-all policy. Accurate dimensions are necessary for the insert to fit in the space provided for it and produce the right amount of heat for your room. So, measure the height, width, and depth of your fireplace properly. If the sizing is perfect, most inserts can deliver from 30000 to 80000 BTUs per hour.
- Insert Fuel
The most common type of fuels used for fireplaces are wood, gas or electric.
- Those who want easy-to-operate and hassle-free cleanup go for electric inserts as a simple plug-in will do the job. These are low maintenance inserts.
- Those who want maximum heat output go for gas inserts. These being vent-free and safe to use is great for large rooms.
- Those who want an antique-looking fireplace with the real feel of wood-burning fire go for wood burning inserts. These require proper ventilation and insulation for optimal use. Since they don’t use the electricity they are safe from a power outage.
