Fireplaces with water jacket inserts

Fireplaces with water jacket inserts have both their supporters and their opponents. Buying them is much bigger an investment than let’s say buying a cast-iron or a steel fireplace. The cost of an insert itself amounts to between 3.000 zloty to 8.000 zloty while the cost of their surround depends on the type of a surround. A fireplace with a water insert is not a solution that suits every pocket.

Fireplaces with water jackets inserts, however, enable their users to lower heating costs, owing to a comparatively easy access and a low price of their fuel, in other words - wood. They look like traditional fireplace inserts but they do not heat the air directly, they heat water through central heating. The way they operate is similar to the one of an oven, because they produce hot utility water.
