The benefits of an inset stove

One of the most popular versions of the wood-burning stove currently on the market is the inset stove. Despite functioning pretty much the same as any other stove, an inset stove simply slots into an existing open fireplace.

So, what are the benefits that are encouraging so many people to opt for an inset stove?

Greater efficiency
In comparison to the open fireplaces they usually replace, inset stoves offer huge efficiency savings. A regular open grate will lose around 70% of the heat it generates straight up the chimney. Once an inset stove is installed, as little as 20% of the heat produced will be lost.

Easy fitting
As we’ve alluded to above, inset stoves slot easily into fireplaces. Most inset stoves are designed to fit perfectly into a standard, tapered fireplace, which makes for an easy installation process and minimal disruption to the existing structures of your home.

Less space needed
An inset stove comes with its own air gap built into the convection box. So, whereas a traditional wood-burning stove needs space for air to circulate around it, inset stoves can be used in a smaller space.

Interior design versatility
Not every room is suitable for a feature fireplace with a wood-burning stove at the centre. In many ways, an inset stove is a more subtle alternative. While you can still make it a feature of the room if you wish, it’s just as easy to let it blend into the existing fireplace so that it only really catches the eye when the roaring flames are licking against the glass.
