Using a fireplace insert as an alternative to a fireplace is a great way to reduce home heating costs while giving your home a comfortable New England feel.

Electric Fireplace


Wood-burning fireplace inserts give off a great amount of heat when installed into a traditional masonry fireplace. With the long-standing tradition in New England of having a wood-burning fireplace, using a wood-burning insert is a great alternative and a great investment for your home. Burning wood in your fireplace normally allows most of the heat produced, as well as the heat from the rest of your home, to escape up the flue. Why not enjoy all the comforts of burning wood, while creating added heat for your home? An insert will allow you to direct that heat back into the room. This is one of the reasons who love wood-burning fireplace inserts – it’s more efficient and will make your home more comfortable through the winter. 



Direct-vent gas inserts are becoming more and more popular throughout New England. As time moves on, people are seeing the efficiency and ease of gas inserts. With the simple flip of a switch or press of a button, you can add warmth to the rooms you use the most while paying less for your heating bill. A centrally located gas insert can become an efficient means for you to warm up your house. Not to mention it will also provide you with the beautiful visual of a burning fire. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits of a gas direct-vent insert! 



Electric fireplace inserts are another great alternative to the traditional New England fireplace. The flame-free inserts are safe, with an easy installation process and a more efficient way to heat your home. On top of the lower utility bills, the heat produced by electric fireplace inserts is healthier, meaning it doesn’t pollute the air like most wood-burning fireplaces do.
