If you want to keep the romance of an open fireplace and not lose out on efficiency, then an insert fireplace is perfect for you. An insert fireplace offers you the design, charm and poetry of an open fireplace alongside the efficiency and economy of a freestanding stove. In an insert fireplace, the energy stored in wood is utilised 8-10 times better than in an open fireplace where the air in the living room is exchanged at least four times every hour. Modern insert fireplaces can both be adjusted for and built into an existing fireplace opening. In houses where floor space is at a premium, an insert fireplace is an unbeatable source of heat.
