  • Lower Heating Bills and Increase Efficiency
    Would you throw money out the door? What about the chimney?

    The reality when using a wood-burning fireplace is that most of the heat produced goes right out of the chimney. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a wood-burning fireplace is one of the most inefficient ways to heat your home and can exhaust up to 24,000 cubic feet of air per hour outside, drawing in cold air through doors and windows.

    Instead of watching your money drift away through the chimney, update your fireplace with a modern, easy-to-use, gas insert.

    Gas fireplace inserts offer increased heating efficiency because they feature a sealed combustion system, unlike a wood-burning fireplace. This means 100 percent of the combustion air necessary to produce a flame comes from outside the home through a direct vent pipe, eliminating the heat loss associated with conventional chimneys. Up to 85 percent of the heat that a direct vent gas insert generates, remains in the house.

    Additionally, the direct vent pipe expels 100 percent of the fire’s combustion exhaust outside the home, protecting indoor air quality. And, because they are highly efficient, direct vent gas fireplace inserts can pay for themselves in a few years through lower heating bills.

    Gas fireplace inserts won’t just save you money, they will save you time too. After you install a gas fireplace insert, you will enjoy the greatest level of convenience, with a warm fire just a flip of a switch away. No more hauling wood though the house and cleaning messy ashes. And, with a wide variety of fireplace inserts available, you can find one that suits your home’s unique décor and style.
