Think of a gas insert as a fireplace in a box. It’s made in a factory by top names in the hearth industry, such as Valor and Regency, and designed to fit right into your masonry fireplace’s firebox. Instead of wood logs, it sends flames through an authentic-looking log set.

Installation involves connecting the unit to a natural gas or propane line and running the venting pipe up the existing chimney. Gas inserts are simple appliances, but they bring big benefits.

High Heat

Clean-burning gas fireplace inserts produce far more heat than any traditional wood-burning masonry fireplace. The reason? A closed combustion system causes the insert to hold on to its heat. The result? Three to four times more heat in your room.

Lower Heating Bills

With its efficient use of fuel, your insert will cost you less to run than a traditional open fireplace. Gas-burning fireplace inserts are EPA-certified to operate with amazing efficiency while sending minimal emissions into the environment.

Easy to Use

You don’t build fires in a gas insert; rather, you just turn them on. A switch or remote gets the flames blazing and turns them off just as fast. A built-in thermostat lets you easily control the temperature in the room.

Minimal Maintenance

What many Columbus homeowners love most about gas-burning fireplace inserts is the minimal amount of maintenance. These appliances don’t require chimney sweeping to remove creosote (like with wood fireplaces), and the firebox remains amazingly clean use after use. Generally, all that’s required is an annual safety checkup with one of our experienced gas fireplace inspectors.

No Mess

You don’t chop, haul or store logs with a gas insert. You don’t have wood chips, detached bark and little bugs to deal with. You don’t have to go to a forest and chop stuff down. There’s no sweeping, vacuuming or scrubbing. All you have to do is enjoy the appliance.
