What is a Gas Fireplace Insert?

A gas-fueled fireplace insert fits directly inside an existing wood-burning fireplace opening and uses natural gas or propane to heat rather than wood.

These gas or propane fireplace inserts can be controlled with ease by using either a remote control or a wall switch. Now you will have a cozy, warm fire in a matter of moments.

We love how simply painting the brick and putting in the gas fireplace insert transformed this room. And the installation process was so easy. I went to work and when I came home, the fireplace was done. It’s just gorgeous!

Update Your Wood-Burning Fireplace & Discover the Efficiency of a Gas Fireplace Insert

There’s a certain nostalgia that goes along with having a wood-burning fireplace.

Listening to logs crackling while warming your feet after a long day at work is one of those pleasing and relaxing times that nearly anyone can enjoy while also finding solace.

But wood-burning fireplaces are no longer ideal when it comes to heating efficiency.

Wood-burning fireplaces can be drafty or make it difficult to maintain a fire, so you may consider converting your current fireplace to gas using an updated fireplace insert.

Fireplace technicians at Best Fire Hearth & Patio are equipped with the technical training and hands-on experience required to successfully convert an existing fireplace to a gas fireplace.

Our team can have your wood-burning fireplace converted to a gas fireplace using a gas insert pretty quickly. And you’ll be enjoying your updated fireplace again in no time.

Updating your wood-burning fireplace doesn’t mean you’ll have to give up real flames or heat.

Converting your fireplace to gas will allow you to enjoy real flames and heat without a draft or the nuisance of building a fire.

Greater heating efficiency can be made a reality as gas inserts keep the warm air in and the cold air out.

Updating your fireplace can help you save on heating costs while simultaneously updating the look and resale value of your home.
