Pellet burning fireplace insert in Olney MD

If you’re tired of the sluggish performance and high maintenance of your wood-burning masonry fireplace, the answer to all your problems might be a new pellet fireplace insert.  These units are powerful heat generators that are neat, clean and beautiful to look at.

For high heat ratings and convenient operation, a new pellet-burning insert from top makers like Regency and Hampton is an excellent choice.  Quick installation means heat is on the way fast.

Pellet fireplace inserts are growing in popularity by the day in Maryland.  Here’s why.

High heat:

The closed combustion system pellet inserts employ allow for heat-efficiency ratings of 80% or 90% or higher.  This means the majority of the heat the appliance creates is available to heat your home and everyone in it.

Easy to use:

Pellet inserts have an attached hopper into which the pellets are poured.  The hopper automatically feeds the fuel into the firebox at a specified rate for even, consistent fires.  Pellet inserts can keep a fire going for up to 36 hours without needing to re-load.

Clean operation:

With a new pellet fireplace insert, you won’t be sweeping up log debris all around your fireplace.  Pellets are highly compacted pieces made primarily of sawdust and various agricultural waste – they don’t chip and fall apart, and the bags they’re sold in keep them all in one place.

Basic maintenance:

Pellet inserts are built to operate at the highest efficiency year after year.  Maintenance includes cleaning ash out of the firebox and scheduling an annual check-up and cleaning with a certified chimney sweep.  Other than that, it’s “plug and play.”

Pellet insert in Travilah MDGood for the environment:

Burning wood doesn’t leave a carbon footprint on the environment.  With new EPA standards, pellet inserts burn clean and hot.  Plus, no trees need to be chopped down as pellets are made from by-products of already-harvested trees.

Simple installation:

An insert is like a fireplace in a box.  It’s factory-built and fits right into your existing fireplace.  With expert installation by NFI-certified technicians, your old under-performing fireplace will be replaced in no time with a wonderful source of heat.

Great designs:

Pellet fireplace inserts are available in a wide range of styles, shapes, sizes and finishes.  It won’t be hard to find the perfect model to add a touch of taste and elegance to your home.

There’s no reason to keep running a low-efficiency masonry fireplace year after year if your main reason for having a fireplace is to add heat to your home.  A new pellet fireplace insert will produce the heat you want and bring you many other benefits in the bargain.
