What’s the Difference Between a Pellet Stove and an Insert?
The main difference between a regular pellet stove and an insert is that the former is freestanding, and the latter is installed within an existing fireplace or stove. Both freestanding pellet stoves and inserts produce similar levels of heat (in BTUs), have similar rates of efficiencies (generally ranging from 50 to 80 percent or higher) and have similar price points.
So it boils down to where you’d like to place the stove and whether you have an existing fireplace. An insert is designed to fit into an existing fireplace and utilize the chimney flues. A freestanding pellet stove can essentially be placed anywhere you’d like and can serve as an attractive decorative piece. You’ll need to vent it to an exterior wall which may either require a new vent or a chimney.
So, if you’re short on floor space, perhaps a fireplace insert would work for you.
Considerations and Features
When shopping for pellet fireplace inserts or pellet stove inserts in Massachusetts, a member of The Stove Center’s knowledgeable sales team can highlight various features and points to consider such as:
Remote control access. Control your insert’s temperature and settings with a touch of a remote control screen.
Heat output. Control which areas or zones of your home you’d like to redirect heat to.
Accessibility. While stove or fireplace inserts are typically stationary, some models can be slid out for easier cleaning, or have slide-out drawers and trays.
Types of fuel required. Some models require you use only high-quality pellets, while others allow for other fuel types such as corn and wood chips.
Size required. Are you looking to heat your entire home, or just one room? It’s helpful if you know the size of the area you’d like to heat.
Hopper size. The hopper holds the pellets and feeds them to be used as fuel when needed. Larger hoppers need to be filled up less frequently, however, take up more room.
Types of Pellets You’ll Need
While pellets come in all makes and grades, hardwoods such as maple, ash, and oak deliver more bang for your buck as they can produce more heat due to their denser qualities.
While you may be tempted to buy cheaper pellets, be wary of blends which many contain harmful additives or contaminants which can dirty your insert.
