Do you have a traditional masonry fireplace in your home? If the answer is “yes,” another question might be, How satisfied are you with the level of heat it produces? If the answer is “not very,” maybe it’s time to look at a new gas fireplace insert.
Inserts are pre-made units that fit into the firebox of your existing fireplace. It’s an easy way to experience an amazing difference in how efficiently you heat your home.
Gas Fireplace Inserts = More Heat
Heat efficiency ratings are assigned to fireplaces and stoves to tell you how much of their burning fuel will translate into actual heat inside your home. For example, most open-burning masonry fireplaces have ratings of 20% and sometimes much lower. This means 80% or more of the produced heat is lost up the chimney.
Gas fireplace inserts commonly have efficiency ratings of 80% and higher, meaning most of the heat created by the appliance is heat that can be used to warm your home and the people in it. The reason for this huge performance difference is in how fireplace inserts are designed.
How Gas-Burning Fireplace Inserts Work and Look
Fireplace inserts are built with a closed-combustion system, which produces and conserves very high levels of heat. Super-insulated and compact, inserts use a special venting system installed in your existing chimney to bring in and exhaust air. Glass doors seal the unit tight so that all drafting takes place and is controlled within the appliance. A blower sends warm air into the room.
Gas inserts are ultra-convenient and very easy to maintain. A switch on the unit or a remote device gets the fire started, controls its level and puts it out when you want it extinguished. Because no wood is involved, you won’t be having to clean up bark strips and wood chips around the hearth area or sweep and vacuum ash and soot from the firebox.
When properly installed by a CSIA-certified technician, gas fireplace inserts are not only safe and powerful but also elegant and attractive. With all the styles, finishes and colors available from leading manufacturers such as Napoleon, Valor, Enviro and Regency, you’ll find it easy to make an unforgettable aesthetic statement in your home.
