What Is a Gas Fireplace Insert?

A fireplace insert is a manufactured appliance that’s designed to fit into the firebox of an existing open masonry fireplace.

Nothing needs to be built, torn down or modified. Gas inserts vent through their own pipe that extends up the chimney. They can run on natural gas or propane.

Amazingly Easy to Use

Forget about the hassle of buying firewood, hauling it, storing it, loading it in the fireplace and waiting for it to start burning. Whenever you use a gas fireplace insert, a switch or remote instantly starts your fire and extinguishes it just as fast.

You can easily control the heat and flame level. It allows you to set just the right mood before an evening of entertaining or just lounging around by the fireplace.


Very Low Maintenance

Because it doesn’t burn wood, your gas insert will be surprisingly easy to take care of. Occasional wiping or vacuuming off the dust is about all you need to do. An annual safety inspection from one of our gas technicians should be scheduled as part of your fireplace maintenance program.

When You Need Heat

If you’ve ever used a standard masonry fireplace for heat, you probably discovered that it didn’t do a very good job. That’s because masonry fireplaces lose up to 90% of their heat right up the chimney.

Gas inserts, on the other hand, retain 70% or more of their heat and make it available to your room. You’ll love your insert on chilly nights.

Lovely Firebox Visuals

With a wide range of gas fireplace log styles and options to choose from, your insert will give you all the beauty and enjoyment you could ever want in a fireplace. Moreover, the log sets available today are made to look amazingly like the real thing. They are complete with bark patterns, natural coloring and unique shapes.
