Gas Inserts

Gas fireplace inserts are a good solution for those who want a fuel-efficient fireplace that’s easy to use and maintain. Because gas fireplace inserts are essentially fireproof boxes that are placed inside regular fireplaces, they conserve heat much more efficiently than traditional fireplaces but can still offer that rustic look that everyone loves.

The Advantages of Gas Fireplace Inserts

If you’re considering having a gas fireplace insert installed in your home, you’re in good company. Because gas fireplace inserts can be considerably more energy efficient than wood burning fireplaces, they are quite popular, especially in newer homes.

Here are just a few reasons that people choose gas fireplace inserts over wood burning fireplaces:

  • Gas inserts have high efficiency ratings. In fact, some estimates give gas inserts efficiency ratings of 58% to 85%, while an old brick fireplace may only have an efficiency rating of 5% or 10%.
  • Gas inserts are the easiest type of fireplaces to install, use and maintain. And, like some gas fireplaces, gas fireplace inserts often can be operated remotely and offer adjustable heat settings.
  • Gas inserts can safely be used in brick fireplaces and prefab fireplaces, and they can be vented directly or through an existing chimney. This means that they can easily be installed in old homes, new homes, and homes still under construction.
  • Gas fireplace inserts don’t produce the ash or creosote that wood burning fireplaces do (although they do produce other pollutants that can affect indoor air quality).
  • Although there are many benefits to choosing a gas fireplace insert, gas inserts aren’t for everyone. In addition to gas inserts not providing the traditional, rustic fireplace experience that some people are looking for, gas inserts burn fossil fuels, which can be problematic for those hoping to reduce their carbon footprint.

Professional Gas Fireplace Insert Installation Services

If you are considering having a gas insert installed, be sure to call certified, experienced fireplace service or professional. Although gas fireplace inserts are relatively easy to install, there are potential venting issues that need to be understood in order to safely install, vent and maintain a gas fireplace insert.
