Upgrade Your Fireplace with an Efficient Gas Fireplace Insert
If you use a traditional open masonry fireplace, you may have noticed that it doesn’t really produce that much heat for your home. Because of their “open” design, masonry fireplaces are notorious for sending the majority of their heat right up the chimney. Fortunately, there’s a solution.
Oliver Twist Chimney & Fireplace of Huntington Beach, CA, can help you select a powerful new gas fireplace insert that will add not only heat but also quite a bit of convenience to your life and beauty to your home.
What Is a Gas Fireplace Insert?
Fireplace inserts are like fireplaces in a box. They come from the factory ready to be installed inside the firebox of a masonry fireplace.
Gas inserts vent through their own dedicated pipe, which comes with the appliance. The pipe extends up through the existing chimney and is completely self-contained.
Fueling a gas insert is as simple as running a natural gas or propane line to the fireplace.
Key Benefits of Gas Inserts
Southern California homeowners who upgrade their older masonry fireplaces with new gas inserts enjoy some special benefits. Here are a few.
Easy to use
A switch or a remote is all you need to get fires going and extinguish them. It’s easy to control the height of the flames and the amount of heat produced.
Today’s gas fireplace inserts come in a wide array of handsome styles and finishes. Your fireplace will instantly become an elegant amenity that gets talked about by everybody who sees it.
No major cleaning
Unlike with wood fireplaces, gas fireplaces burn exceptionally clean with very little residue that needs periodic wiping down. These units don’t produce heavy creosote and soot, so your vent pipe will remain clean and clear.
Gas inserts made by leading fireplace manufacturers feature outstanding fuel efficiency, which means the majority of the heat produced will be available for your home. All insert models on the market today comply with strict EPA emissions standards.
As noted, occasional wiping down is the primary maintenance task required for gas fireplace inserts. To ensure safety, it’s recommended that you schedule annual fireplace inspections from one of our technicians.
