Wood Burning Insert
If you have an existing chimney system but your existing fireplace needs work, your best bet is to have a wood burning insert installed into your fireplace. A wood burning insert is installed into your existing firebox. It is smaller than your existing firebox, and it is made of a fireproof box surrounded by metal sides. This makes the fireplace more efficient than your existing fireplace because the heat is trapped by the sides. Many wood burning inserts also have blowers, which push the warm air back into the room. This makes your fireplace more efficient, which save you money.
If you aren’t completely fixed on the idea of keeping your fireplace, another option is to buy a wood burning stove. This is a great option for many reasons. First, a wood burning stove allows you to have the experience of a burning fire, the aroma, the sound, the mesmerizing jumping of the flames. Second, you can use your existing chimney as a venting system for your wood burning stove. You need to make sure that the vent opening in the stove is the same size as the flue of your chimney. Wood burning stoves come with factory built venting systems, this means they can be placed anywhere as long as you can properly vent it.

No matter which option you choose, it’s best to have a professional take care of the installation.
