Gas fireplace inserts are heating units that retrofit into an existing fireplace (masonry or factory-built), and offer superior efficiency. Inserts utilize the existing chimney, though a flue liner or other modification may be necessary. Most have blowers to circulate the heat, but don’t require electricity to light. Inserts are used to change an existing non-efficient fireplace into an efficient, heat producing zone heater.
Easy, safe, and efficient, gas inserts have convenient optional features that allow you to have a beautiful fire at the touch of a switch, thermostat, or even a remote control. All gas fireplace inserts can burn either natural gas or propane (LP) and are designed to provide aesthetics and to produce heat. In addition to these functional features, a gas fireplace insert is a great source of heat during a power outage.
