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.
