Pellet Inserts

Pellet Inserts are a great alternative to wood or gas inserts. There are numerous benefits achieved by utilizing pellet fuel, including economical and environmental. The insert can be turned on simply by pushing a button igniter and still provides significant heat to your home. Pellet inserts burn more efficiently and create less ash than wood. They also feature an automatic thermostat to regulate the temperature of your room.

THE PROCESS

After doing this for over 35 years, we’ve nailed down the process required to add the warm ambiance of a pellet insert into your home.  From start to finish, there are four steps:

Step One: Masonry Inspection
Prior to the installation of a pellet insert, you should have your masonry fireplace inspected to ensure compliance with national building codes and look for any serious deterioration.   Customers may need to apply for a wood burning permit through their local municipality.

Step Two: Fireplace & Venting Installation
Now it’s the exciting part!  We have certified professionals who can install your pellet  insert and chimney.

Step Three: W.E.T.T. Certification (Wood Energy Technology Transfer)
With the installation now complete, a W.E.T.T. certification letter is provided, ensuring that your pellet unit has been installed by a W.E.T.T. certified installer to manufacturer’s specifications and national code requirements.

Step Four: Finishing, Mantle Installation & Completion
With the W.E.T.T. certification, you can now re-do the face of your fireplace area to suite your tastes.  We can recommend finishers who do great work and certainly don’t mind passing the names of stone masons, drywallers or mantle designers along to you. Visit our showroom to see some examples and get help with your design.
