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.
