You can now increase the efficiency of your heat source with a fuel-conscious gas fireplace insert! Designed to replace your drafty zero clearance or masonry fireplace, our featured line by Napoleon Fireplaces, Empire Distributing, and RealFyre will keep your home warm and cozy, all while providing savings on those monthly heating bills.

A properly installed gas fireplace insert is extremely safe to operate in your home. We recommend having a contractor and/or certified gas professional help you with the installation process. Gas fireplace inserts also provide a cleaner fuel burn, resulting in less fumes being emitted into your home. Our gas fireplace inserts are available in vented and ventless models:

  • Vented
    • An exhaust pipe is vented directly through the wall of the home, similar to a dryer vent. Vented gas fireplace inserts draw air in from the outside for combustion purposes, and then vent it back outside.
  • Ventless
    • Also known as vent free, these clean burning units do not require a chimney or ventilation pipe. Heat is forced into the room through a blower unit. These highly efficient fireplace inserts use less fuel to produce warmth.

A gas fireplace insert is similar to a stove that fits within your existing masonry fireplace, rather than a newly fabricated structure. It is essentially a fireproof box encased with cast iron or steel, depending on the manufacturer. High temperature pyroceramic glass is the forefront of the device. This closed combustion appliance, when combined with a blower and venting system, circulates warm air throughout the room and offers advantages for energy efficiency and cost effectiveness! The United States has approved two different installation techniques:

  • Direct Connect
    • A short length of stainless steel liner attached to the top of the insert body is directed up into the chimney of the existing fireplace. While this configuration may be less costly to set up, the requirements for cleaning, maintenance, and repair can be time consuming and expensive, as the insert has to be removed in order to perform these tasks.
  • Flexible Flue Liner
    • Today's chimney liners are made from a variety of materials, with the most popular being solid double wall pipe or flexible stainless steel liner. A contractor or other professional will feed the new liner through the chimney from the top. Flexible liners will curve and bend around the smoke shelf and damper in the "throat" of the chimney to meet the insert for an easy connect. Solid liners may require your contractor to perform a slight make over by removing parts from the chimney throat to accommodate the new configuration. Some liners may even need to be sealed to the masonry within your chimney, which prevents cold air and fumes from entering the room. Fireplace inserts that are installed in this manner should be considered permanent.

Whether you choose natural gas or propane, a gas fireplace insert effectively eliminates heat loss and allows the fire to have a lower combustion fuel rate. These appliances have a valve that controls the pressure and amount of gas supplied to the unit. Modern gas fireplace inserts are also equipped with safety features! Some have valves that can detect whether or not gas is being heated. Once temperatures reach a certain point, the gas valve cuts off the supply of fuel. This helps prevent harmful fumes from escaping into the home. Additionally, the glass and metal elements of an insert tend to be hot to the touch in some models. However, many fireplace inserts now have "touch safe" technology that keeps the surfaces of your insert at low temperatures to avoid accidental injury.

We offer many beautiful styles, sizes, and BTU ratings based on your needs. A modern gas fireplace insert is the perfect solution to updating the look of your living space and improving fuel economy for the heating season! If you're unsure of how to measure your fireplace unit for an insert, call our customer service professionals. We will help you get the perfect fit for these products.
