There are many types of fireplace inserts on the market, but all will bring the comfort and warmth of a glowing fire into your living room, office, kitchen, bedroom, or other space. Some are electric while others use fuel, which changes the look of the flames and the ease of use. Read a little about each kind to decide what is the right fit for you and your space.
Electric Fireplace Inserts: As the name suggests, this kind of insert runs on electricity. It is remarkably energy efficient, using about the same amount of electricity as a coffee maker. This not only means your fireplace will be more eco-friendly, but also that it will be more electricity-bill-friendly as well. Enjoy realistic 3D flames that bring stunning ambiance to your home without burning a fuel source. Different models offer a wide range of looks, so you can choose between glowing embers and flickering flames. This type of insert also provides plenty of warmth to heat your space while maintaining the room’s natural humidity level.
Infrared Fireplace Inserts: This type of insert uses imperceptible light waves to heat a space much more efficiently than other electric or fuel options. The fireplace runs in near silence and costs only a few pennies for every hour of operation. As with the electric version, the infrared inserts allow you to customize the look and color of the flames. You can even adjust the desired temperature of the room, which means you can enjoy the aesthetic of the fireplace without the extra heat in warmer seasons.
Ethanol Fireplace Inserts: Ethanol is an eco-friendly fuel source made from USA corn. It burns clear, bright, and toxin-free in your fireplace. Unlike traditional wood-burning fireplaces, ethanol produces no smoke or soot, meaning you can keep your space clean while still enjoying the comfort of live flame. Each unit is designed to hold sufficient ethanol to heat the space for an extended period of time. Turn it on before you go to bed and enjoy the warmth and comfort of a fire all the way through the night.
