A wood burning insert converts your open fireplace into a powerful heating source with a very long burn time. Building a fire in an open fireplace may give you perhaps a couple hours of burn time while maybe not even heating the room. Using less wood than an open fire, a wood insert (a wood stove designed to be installed inside your fireplace) can burn 20 hours or more and provide all or most of your home's heating requirements.
Turn down your thermostat and heat your home without need of the power grid! Wood is a renewable energy resource that works when the power is out, giving you the independence to stay home and warm in the worst that winter can throw your way.
