What are the Best Brands for Fireplace Inserts in Kansas City?

What are the Best Brands for Fireplace Inserts in Kansas City?

Older fireplaces aren’t just an eyesore, they are also responsible for heat loss due to drafts that carry most of the warmth right up and out of your chimney. This inefficiency shows up on your utility bills because your furnace works harder to compensate and drives up heating costs. Considering the benefits of replacing an outdated, inefficient fireplace with a fireplace insert, updating your fireplace makes sense.

Fireplace inserts are meant to fit within the space taken up by your existing masonry or brick fireplace, therefore they are smaller. And, since the fire is kept within the insert, fewer harmful emissions are released into the air.

The first decision to make when choosing a fireplace insert is the fuel type. Your options are gas, wood and pellet.

  • Choose gas if you’re done dealing with firewood and the mess it creates. Lighting a gas fireplace insert is as simple as flicking a switch or even using an app. Within minutes, you’ll feel the warmth from the insert.
  • Go with wood if you want to retain the tradition of a wood-burning fireplace, but let go of the work and expense. Wood-fueled fireplace inserts burn longer without requiring adding a lot of extra firewood.
  • Select pellet if you don’t have or don’t want to run a gas line to your fireplace. Some find that pellet fireplace inserts are easier to use and manage than wood-burning ones. 
  • Pick electric if you want the ultimate in no fuss, no muss. Electric is clean, efficient and can be enjoyed any time of year.

The next step is choosing a fireplace insert from a brand you can trust. That’s the great thing about buying an insert from Complete Home Concepts. We’re not an online or big box store retailer.
