Wood Insert Buyer’s Guide

Everything You Need to Know Before Buying a Wood Fireplace Insert

Why Choose a Wood Insert?

When it’s sustainably harvested, wood is a renewable and carbon neutral fuel source. New technology has revolutionized the environmental efficiency of wood burning fireplaces, stoves and inserts. Many of Regency’s highly efficient wood inserts meet current EPA standards. This means that they produce less than 4.5 grams per hour with many less than 2.0 grams per hour, of particulates (smoke and ash) into the atmosphere. The cleanest burning wood inserts utilize three stage combustion burn technology, a process that burns almost all gasses, smoke and ash completely resulting in a higher temperature burn and very limited emissions.

Wood inserts are fireboxes designed to be inserted into old, low efficiency open hearth fireplaces to increase heat transfer, efficiency, and reduce emissions. Wood inserts can also be used to create new fireplaces where one previously did not exist.

Wood inserts are designed to suit a range of styles and décors and are built to fit into most existing masonry fireplaces.

Benefits of a Wood Insert

  1. Fill an Empty Firebox
    Fireplace inserts direct the heat into your home, instead of out the chimney. Fill an empty firebox with a premium fireplace insert to create a better heat source.

  2. Highly Efficient Wood Insert
    Regency wood inserts are over 74% efficient and can burn up to 1000 oF. Get more heat while using less fuel.
  3. Eco-Friendly
    Because they are so efficient, Regency wood inserts also produce fewer emissions than open fireplaces. The extra gasses and by-product are re-burned to create a hotter, cleaner, more efficient burn.
  4. Minimal Renovations
    Regency wood inserts slide directly into existing fireplaces, and therefore require little-to-no modification of the existing structure!
  5. Power’s Out, Heat’s On
    If you lose power a Regency wood insert will continue to safely produce radiant heat. If a winter storm knocks out power there is no need to worry – you’ll still be nice and warm, even if you are in the dark. All Regency wood fireplaces work safely without electricity and will continue to provide the comfort of radiant heat. Regency keeps you and your home warm, no matter the weather conditions.
  6. Guaranteed Quality

We believe quality is in the details, and we work hard every day to build some of the longest-lasting and best fireplace products on the market.

Ready to Buy a Regency?

Are you ready to take the first step to adding unmatched warmth and comfort to your home? Here’s how to begin…

Start Planning
Before visit your local fireplace dealer, take some photos of your current fireplace as well as record the brand name and model number if you have a current fireplace insert. Your local fireplace store will use the photos and information you provide to evaluate your design goals and identify what size wood fireplace insert you need.

Take Measurements
Our wood inserts come in many different sizes. That’s why you need to measure your opening before you buy one. You will want to measure the height and width of the fireplace at both the opening and the back of the fireplace, as well as the depth.
