Traditional wood fireplaces are an inviting addition to a home. While many alternatives exist, having a wood burning fireplace may still be your preference for one reason or another. But wood fireplaces also have a reputation for being inefficient. That's because older models tend to actually lose as much heat as they produce; warm air is sucked out of your home while cold air gets pulled in, causing fireplaces to be largely inefficient, expensive and not worth the hassle.
Traditional wood burning fireplaces, like the one you might have had growing up, are inefficient, exhausting to clean and maintain, and create a negative environmental impact. Most old fireplaces produce a great ambiance, but they're not a primary source of heat.

Today, having a wood burning fireplace isn't out of the question; new models from manufacturers such as Napoleon and Valcourt feature expert designs that are more practical, functional and energy efficient than ever before.
