Many area homes have traditional fireplaces. If you want to help heat your home, they’re not the best option for that– gas fireplace inserts, however, are. Inserts are heating appliances you place inside your old fireplace. Buying and using one can save you money because you don’t have to renovate or rebuild your old fireplace. You’re just using it in a new, convenient way that doesn’t involve burning wood.
The Benefits of Gas Fireplace Inserts
People like using gas fireplace inserts because they help cut down on energy bills. They’re environmentally-friendly and make your home’s heating system more efficient.
With older, traditional fireplaces, you have to deal with a lot of stuff, from “the damper,” to “kindling,” and then some. And, of course, there’s wood involved. But with gas fireplace inserts, it’s easier and cleaner. You don’t even need an existing chimney for installation– just proximity to the roof or an outside wall.
Heating with gas typically involves a gas vent pipe installation at minimal cost. Furthermore, gas models can be placed not just in a living room (where most fireplaces are), but in other rooms like your bedroom, kitchen or even the bathroom. Gas models can be compact — they’re small but give off plenty of heat. You can use them for “zone heating,” whereas you pick the places in your home you’d most like kept toasty warm… basically, heat your living areas, with little-to-no electricity required. Gas fireplaces run on the power of the pilot flame, which helps keep your overall energy costs down. Meanwhile, natural gas is one of the least expensive fuels available.
