Insert Stoves FAQ

What is an insert stove?

An insert stove is a heating unit that fits directly into an existing open fireplace. It’s an efficient way to utilise the space of a traditional fireplace while maximising heat output and reducing energy consumption.

What are the benefits of using an insert stove?

Insert stoves offer a blend of aesthetic appeal and functional benefits. They provide a traditional look while energy efficient, making them a cost-effective heating solution. They also emit fewer particles into the atmosphere than traditional open fireplaces, making them more environmentally friendly.

What fuel types can be used in insert stoves?

Depending on the specific model, insert stoves can accommodate various fuel types, including wood, multi-fuel (coal, wood, peat), and gas. It’s essential to check the specifications of the stove before choosing your fuel type.

Are insert stoves energy efficient?

Yes, insert stoves are highly energy efficient. They are designed to maximise heat output, often achieving up to 80% efficiency rates. This means less heat is lost up the chimney, and more is radiated into your room, reducing overall energy consumption.

Do I need a chimney for an insert stove?

Yes, an insert stove is designed to fit into an existing fireplace and use the chimney for venting smoke and emissions. It’s important to ensure your chimney is in good working order before installing an insert stove.

How often should I service my insert stove?

We recommend servicing your insert stove at least once a year to ensure it remains in good working condition. Regular service includes cleaning, checking seals and joints, and inspecting the flue and ventilation.
