PELLET FIREPLACE INSERTS

Pellet inserts are an option when it’s time to update your traditional wood fireplace with something that is more efficient, and easier to load. There are a number of insert options to consider from. A pellet fueled model is an increasingly popular choice for those who do not want a gas fireplace insert, and who would like to avoid carrying and storing wood logs in their home.

What is an Insert?

A pellet insert is fitted into an old wood masonry fireplace to convert it into a pellet fireplace. The most common reason is for efficiency. While traditional fireplaces offer efficiency ratings of 5% – 10%, installing a good quality insert can increase your efficiency rating to 75% or better! Think about the energy savings, and how they’ll affect your wallet and positively impact the environment.

Increased Warmth

These units force warm air out into the room with strategically placed fans and vents. They do not allow the warm air in the room to go up the chimney.

Fuel Your Fire

A fire that runs on pellets is much like a log fire, but the wood is replaced with small pill sized pellets that are fed automatically from a hopper. These pellets are made from compressed sawdust for sawmills. Other excess biomass can be used too, making this a very green choice for the environment.

The fuel is typically purchased in 40 lb bags and loaded into the hopper as needed. They are automatically fed into the fire by an auger. You can control the heat and size of the fire by adjusting the thermostat.

PELLET VS. GAS

Why choose pellet over gas?  Here are a few of the most common reasons:

  1. They are not harmful to the environment in any way; they are a recycled biomass material
  2. Storage of wood material is easier and safer than storage of gas
  3. There is no need for an external gas line which is sometimes unavailable in remote properties
  4. You can achieve the natural look of a log fire

Looking Forward to Using Our New Fireplace!

The guys from Nordic Energy Systems were really good. We called them to install a new fire place/chimney. Going into the project I was a little bit worried. We had a brand new steel roof and I was afraid it might get messed up during the installation, but my fears were unwarranted. Everything looks great!
