Create a steady temperature in your home as your pellet insert burns for hours at a time with no interference needed. It’s easy to see why homeowners choose to upgrade to these incredible heating sources.
Homeowners can also enjoy heating efficiencies of over 85% when they install a new pellet fireplace insert.

If you are looking for a convenient & cost-effective heating appliance that’s environmentally-friendly to boot, a pellet insert is the clear winner.
Pellet fireplace inserts are designed to operate much like a pellet or coal stove. Pellets, the recycled & renewable fuel source, are poured into a storage bin inside the insert, a.k.a. the hopper. An auger then begins to automatically feed the pellets from the hopper into the firebox where the pellet fuel is burn in a super-efficient system. The heat output level you choose will determine how quickly or slowly the pellets are fed into the fire. The faster the pellets are released, the hotter the fire will burn and vice versa. Many newer models let you set the heat output with a thermostat so you can “set & forget” while your pellet insert does all the work.
