If your home has an older fireplace, but you are worried about the safety of the open hearth, consider installing an efficient fireplace insert. These inserts are installed in existing fireplaces where the chimney is already established, but they offer a more efficient heating system. Fireplace inserts have a closed, self-cleaning glass front, so the wood, coal, or gas is not open to your room. They also have fans to feed the fire, as well as to heat your room. If you prefer using wood as a heating source, a wood fireplace insert is a good option, as it keeps the flames safely behind glass, while offering you a view of the fire. On the other hand, you can avoid using wood altogether by installing a gas fireplace insert, which hooks up to your home's natural gas to fuel the flames. Both offer a nice view of the flames behind insulated glass, keeping the fire away from your home's interior. If you are ready to upgrade your fireplace with a fireplace insert, make sure to browse the reliable sellers on eBay first to find a large selection of new and used inserts from a variety of sellers.
