The classic mantle-and-hearth fireplace is now giving way to more contemporary gas fireplace and insert designs that emphasize clean, simple lines. Gas has become the top option.

Fireplaces are also getting bigger, influenced by widescreen television sets. And, there are more options for finishes, from classic brick and rock to ultra-sleek tile, glass, and metal.

People are enjoying more modern design that is clean, modern, and sleek and homeowners are more in favor of clean-face units and wider dimensions.

See-through or doubled-sided gas fireplaces are a fast-growing trend, adding a focal point in home décor. See-through fireplace styles offer light and heat on both sides of a wall, with the fireplace serving as a focal point for two rooms, or as a divider for larger areas.

Today’s gas fireplaces are a whole lot more versatile, with a range of styles, surrounds and finishes complimenting any décor. Looks can easily be changed and updated as well by simply adding decorative rocks or glass crystals or installing a new log set. It’s an easy and affordable way to revamp or customize an indoor fireplace.

Gas Fireplaces add value to a home, and can significantly reduce heating costs. While some fireplaces heat only one room, others have fans with can circulate warm air to other parts of the home. They are more efficient because you can just heat the room you are in with a thermostat or transfer the heat to other rooms.

Natural gas fireplaces are a number one choice because they are convenient, easily maintained and cost-efficient. Anyone can walk in the room and flip a switch, and turn on the fire. You can heat the room, and keep the furnace turned down.

Gas Fireplaces offer a range of benefits to a home, creating ambiance, warmth and comfort while adding value and cutting heating costs. Fireplaces not only serve as a focal point of a room, but as a gathering point as well.

Are you redesigning, redecorating or remodeling a favorite room in your house? If so, now is the time to consider gas log sets and custom glass fireplace doors. Instead of an open fireplace consider a fire that will add beauty and efficient warmth to your home.

You could add a fireplace insert, but then you'd have to use their design, not your own. If you are designing or remodeling a living space, custom glass fireplace doors can offer you the style you want to match your home.

Gas logs and glass fireplace doors make your fireplace more efficient while making it easier to use. They cost much less than a fireplace insert, too. Open fireplaces are very inefficient. If you want to use the fireplace, even sparingly, it would make more sense to add gas logs and glass fireplace doors. Open fireplaces draw the heat out of your house and up the chimney. Gas fireplaces light with the touch of a button and the glass doors make the heat more efficient. Gas log sets and glass fireplace doors allow you to be able to use the fireplace whenever you desire, even after a long day at work; with no hauling of wood or mess to clean up.

In fact, choose the style of log set too, your re-designed fireplace can have the exact style, look and feel you want. And, gas log sets look that incredibly similar to natural wood.

Gas logs and glass fireplace doors are faster to install than fireplace inserts, which means you can relax in front of the fire soon. For more information on gas logs and fireplace doors, contact The Woodstove Fireplace & Patio Shop.

Converting an Open Fireplace to a Gas Insert for Easy Heating

The Woodstove Fireplace & Patio Shop - Gas Fireplace Inserts

Unlike open wood burning fireplace or old decorative gas fireplaces, today's gas fireplace inserts are heat-producing dynamos that use propane or natural gas to fuel a steady flame on realistic looking logs, decorative modern glass chips, or stones behind a sealed glass face.

Gas inserts for fireplaces can be used in masonry or prefab fireplaces; they can be vented through the existing chimney or if it a free standing unit, through a wall.

Gas inserts are the easiest inserts to use and they need very little maintenance. Flip a switch, start the fire. Its best application is for zone heating-heating up the room you're in or heating a room that isn't warmed sufficiently by your heating system.

Green Factor

Gas inserts can have up to 85% efficiency rating; very little pollution, smoke, ash, or creosote. Zoned heating allows you to reduce overall fuel consumption.

Ventless versions burn very clean, they have to because there do not use chimneys.

Because fuel prices change constantly, any saving measurements are a moving target. Roughly speaking, yearly savings could range from $64-$255 (based on an average heating bill of $638) if you use an insert for zoned heating and turn down your thermostat.

Gas Logs for an Easier Way to Warm Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, November 07, 2018

Whether entertaining friends or relaxing after work, there's nothing like a warm glowing fire to add ambience and warmth to the home. Hauling and storing firewood and cleaning up messy ashes, however, can make building a wood-burning fire a hassle. This season easily transform a wood-burning fireplace and experience the beauty and benefits of gas logs while saving money, time and the environment.


Today's gas logs produce a stunning, realistic flame that can rival any wood-burning log. A wide range of wood types is available, from birch to oak, as well as colored glass and gems and accessories to add personal style to any hearth.


Gas log sets are generally inexpensive to buy and install and cost about a quarter per hour of what it costs to burn wood. Some gas logs are more than 99 percent efficient.


Gas logs allow for instant enjoyment. With a touch of a button, the fireplace turns on and off. There's no need to purchase, store and season wood and clean up and dispose of messy ashes.


Gas logs prevent flying sparks, common with wood, that might burn a rug or cause other damage. They don't create indoor particulate matter that is harmful to asthmatics and those with respiratory issues.

Environmentally Friendly

Burning gas logs helps preserve natural resources for generations to come by eliminating harmful particulate matter in the air.

Which Gas Logs

Real Fyre Gas Logs offers more than 40 authentic styles, each handcrafted and hand-painted to deliver a realistic look with dancing flames and a glowing bed of lively embers.
