What Is a Gas Fireplace Insert?
A gas insert is a factory built unit that in many ways is like a fireplace in a box. The insert is made to fit directly into the open firebox of your masonry fireplace and is connected to its own vent system, which is run up through the existing chimney.
Gas-fueled fireplace inserts are ultra-safe and high-performing. Heavy insulation and closed-combustion technology mean you’ll get an amazing level of heat in an appliance that meets all EPA regulations and runs safely and predictably, winter after winter.
Some Benefits of Gas Inserts
Heat: Gas fireplace inserts, depending on the make and model, come with heat-efficiency ratings of 80% and higher, compared with just 20% or even less with traditional masonry fireplaces. This rating tells you the percentage of heat generated that will be used to heat your home rather than lost up the chimney.
Clean-burning: Current EPA standards ensure that your insert is a clean-burning appliance. Aside from clean combustion, gas heating doesn’t leave behind a bunch of ashes, soot and wood chips for you to deal with.
Easy to use: A switch or a remote is all it takes to crank up your fire and extinguish it. A thermostat allows you to regulate the amount of heat your insert produces.
Large or small spaces: Gas fireplace inserts are available in a variety of sizes and BTU outputs, allowing you to heat rooms from 1,000 square feet up to 3,000 square feet and even larger.
Low-maintenance: Unlike wood-burning fireplaces, your gas insert will not create buildups of flammable creosote in the vent system that require professional chimney sweep services to remove. Overall, gas inserts require very little maintenance.
Great looks: You’ll sacrifice nothing in the looks department when you bring home a new gas insert. These appliances are available in a wide range of finishes, colors and design styles to enhance any existing home décor.
Is Gas Fireplace Insert Installation a DIY Job?
Because these units are self-contained, some people believe they’re easy for a novice to install. Nothing could be further from the truth. Like any gas-driven heating appliance, gas fireplace inserts must be correctly installed by an experienced fireplace technician in order for them to run safely and efficiently.
Keep in mind, too, that many insurance carriers will not cover fires or other damage caused by heating appliances that were improperly installed. Chimney Saver Solutions is staffed by National Fireplace Institute Gas Certified technicians who know exactly what’s required to correctly install a gas fireplace insert. We also install gas stoves!
