Insert Fuel Type

Inserts can make non-efficient wood burning fireplaces more efficient, yet still maintain the original appearance of the fireplace.

There are many considerations to keep in mind with each different fuel type of insert, whether you are looking for the convenience of gas or energy efficiency of wood, Top Hat can help!
