It’s been more than half a century since gas fireplaces changed the landscape of hearth products forever. With a gas fireplace or insert, fires are convenient and quick – eliminating the need to haul wood and spend time starting and feeding fires. They’ve also made the whole experience quite inexpensive.
Now you can find out just how inexpensive it is to enjoy fires with a gas fireplace. And it’s super easy. All you need to know is one of two things: either the BTUs of your fireplace or insert, or you can choose from a list of Heat & Glo, Heatilator or Quadra-Fire models. The Gas Appliance Cost Calculator
does the work for you, calculating approximately what it costs per hour to run the fireplace or insert.
The bottom line? It’s really inexpensive to run a gas fireplace or insert. For instance, the Heat & Glo 6000 – one of the most sought-after gas fireplaces of all time – costs a mere .42 cents per hour* to operate, and the popular Heatilator Novus nXt costs a mere .32 cents per hour*. A Quadra-Fire QFI35FB fireplace insert costs about .42 cents per hour*. So, enjoying a fire for an entire evening can cost as little as $2. That’s a small price to pay for the ambience and warmth that will fill your home.
