Fireplace Inserts

fireplace inserts south jerseyFireplace Inserts:  So, what is a fireplace insert? Essentially, it is a self-contained unit that can ONLY BE INSTALLED INTO AN EXISTING WOODBURNING FIREPLACE. Fireplace inserts are designed to burn wood, gas, pellet or electric fuel types. The major benefit to installing a fireplace insert is the increase in efficiency, where your fireplace opening is not “closed down” with the insert and your damper may be insulated to stop cold air from pouring down the chimney into your room which means no more drafty chimney when a fire is not burning. The fireplace inserts are designed to only provide heat into the room, not take it away and send it up the chimney. This is achieved through various heat distribution sources, such as: blower fans, heat radiating ceramic glass and thermostat control. Fireplace inserts also allow a litany of aesthetic design options with custom fronts and doors available. Turn that drafty chimney into an exceptional heating element that also offers style and ambiance by installing a fireplace insert today.

Pro Tip: Is a Gas Log a Fireplace Insert?: A “Gas Log” is not a fireplace insert, though they are commonly considered one in the same by the general public. Gas logs replace the grate in your fireplace with a gas burner, and refractory logs are installed upon the burner. YOU MUST use the burner and logs designed and UL Listed by the same manufacturer. Some require a fully functional chimney for their exhaust (vented gas log sets), and some can be operated with the damper closed (vent free gas log sets). Vent free gas log sets burn at 99.9% efficiency and exhaust into the room harmless heated air making them a great option for effective heating.

I wanted to thank you for helping repair the fireplace screen. I am thrilled the spray coating of black worked to remove the white film. Your service has been tremendous and I can see why you are so highly rated. I appreciate all you did.

We love our fireplace. Alexis gave us fantastic advice and guided every step of the transaction. Every aspect from purchase to installation was a pleasure. The fireplace improved the family room aesthetically, and it is so cozy that we actually wanted a colder winter so we could use it more. Can’t wait till next winter!
