Fireplace inserts are important fireplace supplies that can help to make your fireplaces more energy efficient and more pleasant to be around. Here we will look at what fireplace inserts do and why they are so useful.

Essentially fireplace inserts help to make your fireplace more efficient and so they are normally used on wood burning fireplaces. Wood burning fireplace inserts are most common because wood burning fireplaces are often the most inefficient and this is because a lot of the heat is lost as it travels back up the chimney. The fire itself uses hot air in order to burn more successfully and this means that it pulls the hot air in from your living room – and then loses much of this up through the chimney.

Wood burning fireplace inserts often look like metal or stone boxes that have a glass front cover that allows you to still see the flames flickering in front.
