Why we don’t use fireplace inserts | Texas Best Fence and Stain


(bright, inquisitive music) – So, one of the other
things with the fireplaces that we do, we don’t have an
insert that we just plug in, per se, on a fireplace. It is a little bit less expensive to have a fireplace that has an insert. I don’t think airflow
and quality of product and “rustic” is what you
get when you have an insert. We do utilize the firebrick,
the fire mortar on the inside, and we’re pretty good with the
draw, to draw the heat out, and educating our
customers on how to use it. Fireplaces these days,
everything’s changed where there’s additional options too that you have to look at. We go out to sell a fireplace,
one of the first things I have to ask is if there’s
going to be a TV in it. If there’s a TV, we use a
recessed area for the TV, then we also have to factor in our mantle. You want to have either
a stone or a wood mantle, which, along with the recessed TV box, will keep the TV from melting. I’ve been to a lot of backyards
where the TV is melting, where somebody didn’t take in account the heat coming out. So, it’s the little
things that are out there; you’re gonna spend some money,
you wanna have it done right. The fireplace, typically,
is the most expensive item that we have on our menu,
so it needs to be done right the first time.
