If you heat your home with oil or propane, it cold be an expensive winter for you. With temperatures that get well below average, and the late-season snow, you may be getting anxious thinking about your upcoming heating bills. If you already have gas running to your home, you can heat your home more efficiently without replacing your oil furnace and tank.

Adding a gas fireplace insert to your home supplements your home heating system. A new gas fireplace insert cost far less than a new furnace, and can dramatically decrease your heating bills.

Everyone loves to enjoy sitting in front of a roaring fire and nothing compares to the efficiency of a gas fireplace. They also burn cleaner than wood and are very easy to use. You may have an open wood burning fireplace, that you want to convert to gas. A plumber will run a gas line to your open hearth, and a gas fireplace insert is then easily installed. An insert slides directly into your existing fireplace and is connected to the gas line.

Energy savings is the biggest reason that more and more homeowners are considering gas fireplace inserts. After the insert is installed, the change to the look and feel of your home is gorgeous. Best of all, gas inserts light with the push of a button. Come home, push a button, and turn on your fire while you relax and stay warm.

Winter can be long and cold. But, you can still do something about your home heating efficiency. Do you heat with oil or propane? If so, you should be thinking about a better way to heat. If you have natural gas in your house already, a great option is to convert your wood burning fireplace to gas. By adding a gas fireplace insert to your home, you will make your home more beautiful and more efficient. You will reduce the price of your oil bill and you will have an easy-to-use, beautiful fire.

A new gas fireplace insert is almost always more efficient to run than your existing furnace, and always more efficient than an open wood hearth. This makes heating your home with gas more cost effective. If your home already has natural gas, you are already halfway there.

For today’s busy lifestyles, many homeowners who are considering adding a wood burning fireplace insert realize that gas will fit their lifestyles better. No stacking, cutting or hauling wood; no mess and no dust. With a gas insert you push a button and the fire is lit. They can also be controlled with a thermostat, for more consistent heat.

Another benefit to a natural gas fireplace insert is that you can turn it on at any time of year without hassle. On those chilly May, June and September evenings, you don’t have to go outside and get wood to start a fire, and you don’t have to turn the heat back on. Just push the button and enjoy your natural looking gas fire.

No gas in your home, but there is gas on your street? No problem. Call your gas company and have them run a line for next year and avoid the rush!

Gas Fireplace Inserts are Attractive and Easy

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 12, 2018

A gas insert is an easy, convenient way to heat your home. They also make a traditional open fireplace more attractive. They consist of a firebox that is surrounded by decorative trim and an insulated glass window for viewing. Because the box is sealed, the heat is prevented from going up the chimney. In fact, the heat is forced back into your home, and most gas inserts have a blower to help move the heated air. Fireplace inserts are placed directly into your existing open fireplace.

Energy efficiency and ease of use are the two biggest benefits of adding a gas insert to your home. Gas Fireplace Inserts average 75% - 80% efficiency and use less gas than gas fireplace logs. They can also be thermostat controlled for even heating.

Heat & Glo gas inserts fit directly into an existing wood burning fireplace turning it into beautiful and efficient heat source, without a major renovation. Put your old, open fireplace to good use with the best-in-class styling and performance of a Heat & Glo gas insert.
