A masonry fireplace is a stunning accent to your home, but it can also serve as an alternative heat source. While your fireplace will not be able to heat your entire home, it can add immense warmth to the room it is in. During the long, cold Indianapolis winters, your fireplace amplifies the coziness and warmth in your home. 

Fireplace Inserts

A fireplace insert maximizes the heat output from your masonry fireplace. An insert may burn either gas, wood, or pellets. Simply place it into your existing masonry fireplace to rejuvenate your entire room. Inserts are a cost-effective way to renovate your existing masonry fireplace for maximum heat output. Those who currently have an older wood-burning fireplace or have a chimney but no fireplace will benefit from a gas or wood-burning fireplace insert. Fireplace inserts come in many styles and sizes, so you can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your room while amplifying the heat as well. 

Optimal Fireplace Performance 

For your fireplace to safely perform well, it must be in optimal condition, free of damage. Soot or creosote buildup in your chimney or damage to the masonry of your fireplace are hazards that will impact the performance of your fireplace. In order to use your fireplace as an alternative heat source, you must have yearly maintenance performed by a professional. You should also address any concerns as soon as you notice them.
