Woodburning Fireplace Inserts

WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE INSERT

A wood insert increases the efficiency of an old drafty masonry fireplace but satisfies the desire for a real fire with the crackle, smell and ambiance. It can also update the look of your fireplace. Whether you are looking for a classic appeal or a touch of modern flare, there are inserts to suit.

What’s an Insert?

These products are installed into an existing masonry fireplace. Undergoing this update can bring your efficiency from 5-10% up to 80%.

How Does an Insert Work?

These models are essentially high-efficiency wood stoves designed to fit into your masonry fireplaces. This greatly decreases the amount of heat that is sent up the chimney or absorbed by the masonry.

They do not allow heat to be lost to the chimney. It has been found that when temperatures reach below zero outside, as they commonly do in Sudbury, a masonry fireplace will actually send more heat out of the room than in! The large ceramic window of an insert prevents air from going into the fire box and up the chimney while still providing you with an excellent view of the fire.

What Size Do You Need?

Select the insert model size that is correct for your living space.

  1. Small
    1. Work best in spaces up to 1500 square feet
    2. Typical wood heat output is 56 000 BTU
  2. Medium
    1. Work in spaces up to 1900-2000 square feet
    2. Typical wood heat output is 70 000 BTU
  3. Large
    1. The largest can heat a room up to 3000 square feet
    2. Maximum wood heat output is over 75 000 BTU

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!

I can’t say enough about Nordic Energy

I can’t say enough about Nordic Energy. From the choosing of the stove to the explanation of how it works the store staff (Denis) was amazing. Where to start with the installation crew. Lucas (Logan) lol Rob and Jacob. What an awesome crew. Very pleasant and knowledgeable. They took such care with my home and in their detail to the little things. The job was never rushed and was done with care. Everything was explained so that it was clear and questions answered. I cannot say enough about Lucas and how he explained everything to me and how if he didn’t like the way things were working once the stove was set up he went back and made sure it was to his satisfaction. It speaks volumes to see someone take such pride in his work. Thanks so much for the amazing service to you all. I would give an 11 if I could. Will highly recommend your company. I will definitely be back for future business. Thanks so much.

We absolutely love the fireplace!

We wanted to let you know that we have used our fireplace a few times now. There were several evenings earlier in September that were chilly and gave us a good excuse to try it out.

We absolutely love the fireplace! It fits our room perfectly and provides just the right amount of heat. You suggested the perfect model for what we needed and wanted.

Thank you so much for the wonderful service provided by you and your team. We also appreciate your patience with us through the installation process, including the return trip to our house to get the fireplace in the right spot. Your efforts to make everything just perfect were much appreciated. Kind regards
